Chive Omelette
We discovered Mongkok Chinese Restaurant while finding new places to dine at Gouger Street. It appears to be very popular with university students, as it is frequently packed when we visited it during the university term so it is recommended to arrive early if you intend to eat there during those periods. Service is usually fast but you may have to wait for a while if you visit it during the peak dinner hour.

The dishes we ordered during our visit were the Chive Omelette, Szechuan Pork Knuckle, Mixed Mushroom Hotpot and Broad Bean with Chinese Chutney. Our favourite dish is the Chive Omelette, which has soft and perfectly cooked eggs set off by the Chinese chives in the dish.

Szechuan Pork Knuckle is one of the more unique dishes served here, consisting of stewed pork knuckle in a spicy Szechuan sauce. We enjoyed the flavour of the dish but felt it could use a bit more cooking time so the meat would have dropped off the bone easily. The bony pork knuckle made it a bit difficult to eat.

The broad beans in the Broad Beans with Chinese Chutney were perfectly cooked and the Chinese chutney complemented the broad beans perfectly. However we felt it was a bit dry because it did not have sufficient sauce. The Mixed Mushroom Hotpot had a selection of mushrooms that was cooked just right and the sauce the mushrooms were cooked in complemented it perfectly.
