Seafood claypot, Claypot King
Pork belly at Claypot King
[ADVERT]I ordered the seafood claypot, seafood with vegetables, served with rice. The flavour was bland, however there is enough chilli and soy sauce on the table for you to add some spice.
Ordered by my dining companion, I was informed the pork belly claypot was not the best, but for the price, one can only expect to be full rather than eat like a King.
Crepe with icecream
Steamed custard bun
My friend was more than satisfied with his sweet treat choice of crepe with vanilla ice-cream. I, on the other hand, was craving a steamed custard bun which was disappointingly overcooked and dry. If you have travelled to Hong Kong, you will know the goey sweet filling that is crave worthy.
For a cheap and quick Chinese meal, in a low key setting, head here.
If you know where I can find a traditional Hong Kong steamed custard bun, please let me know.
