When it gets too hectic to cook (lame excuse, I know), I indulge.
In December (just like January to November), I kissed every gram of diet intention goodbye.
Last weekend's culprit which ruined my diet even further was this good ol' greasy Shanghai yumminess.
It's a neighborhood eatery, it's small, it's casual (I could visit this place in my sweatshirts and I'd look absolutely belong), and the food? Damn good.
First, the pan fried dumplings. Yum! Greasy, but yum, and so long after dinner, you'll still be burping chives from these babies. (Oppps, did I just say that?!)
The hot and sour soup has pig blood cake, which I hardly see these days, and it has a perfect balance of sweet, sour and heat. Probably isn't authentic, but I love the taste even more.
The sticky and sweet pork ribs on a bed of veggie rice? Crazy amazing. Comfort food at its best. The portion is gigantic, and I could finish half of it (about 3 bowls of rice) myself. Wonder why I am not so svelte...
The salt and pepper chicken wings...were literally deep fried chicken wings sprinkled with salt and pepper. I haven't met anything deep fried that I didn't like. So, these were decent, but not incredible. Get something else, the pork chop's better.
All of the above cost HK$62, fed two greedy eaters.
If you happen to be in the neighborhood and hungry....enjoy.
