Hong Kong Style Steak House - Salami Restaurant, Tsuen Wan
A charming classic Hong Kong steak house.
Look at that smirking little chef at the entrance. I adore!
The decor is very old skool.
I hardly see this kind of doors and curtains anymore.
Black and white tiles, old chairs, Hong Kong version of diner seats (car wai)...I love!
Sparkly disco stairway to a smoky second floor.
Wilted flowers. Of course. I'd wilt too from all that smoke from the sizzling hot plate.
Napkins and table setting paper, all with Salami classic graphic. Lovely!
Set meals start with fluffy buns and butter.
Red soup. I always choose the red soup.
And then your sizzling meals arrive. Servers will pour your sauce.
Shield yourself with a napkin to avoid getting oil vapour all over you.
This is a "mixed grill". It's overflowing with all kinds of meat in there.
Beef, pork, chicken, ham (or bacon), chicken sausage, mixed veggies and fries.
The double beef. Marinated, corn starched, tenderized.
Ironically, not my favorite thing to order from Hong Kong style steak houses.
My favorite from Salami is...these two huge pieces of deep fried and breaded chicken "cutlets"!!! Crispy exterior, juicy interior, tasty all the way through! Served with potato "salad" drenched with mayo. I LOVE LOVE LOVE!
Not every Hong Kong steak house serves these chicken cutlets. If they don't have this, my next go-to choice is the "grilled" chicken steak. Always tasty.
Portions are generally gigantic, but we're big eaters.
Servers always assume that the boy ordered the creamy drink and the girl ordered the lemony drink.
In our case, they're always wrong.
The giant meal ends with a small serving of frozen solid ice cream.
