On our recent trip to Hong Kong we decided to revisit The China Club, but this time for lunch. We arrived early and were seated in a corner booth with a great view of the dining room, which allowed us to observe the business folk who were also dining there.
It is great to experience a restaurant you enjoy at a different time of the day. Our previous experiences of The China Club have been dinners and it was amazing to see how light and airy the Club is during the daytime and a slightly different clientele. You really get to appreciate the stained glass windows with the sunlight streaming through them.
As always the staff were friendly and efficient and most helpful.
Before we ordered, pickles and boiled peanuts were bought to our table and then we set about deciding what to order.
For our entrée we had a plate of honey barbecued pork and honey roasted eel. The pork was delicious and the eel was tasty (Mr. CA4G had most of the eel, which he loved).
We chose two main courses along with our favourite pineapple and seafood rice. Our first main was a spicy prawn dish which we followed with a beef stir fry (really must take photos of the menus).
And we always forget that the pineapple seafood fried rice is enough for four people, but we love it so much we just can’t go past it. Makes us sit and enjoy our meal a little longer.
Of course we couldn’t go past custard tarts. These were so light and fluffy they put the ones here in Chinatown to shame. They were also had that just cooked warmness to them.
Again, another great experience at The China Club in Hong Kong and we look forward to our next visit.
