There is always something for everyone at Tang Hong Kong Gourmet

Hi Huneybees,

Are you a fan of Cantonese cuisine? I know I am! I literally grew up eating Cantonese cuisine and Chinatown's one of my favourite hunts for that. Now let me introduce you to Tang Hong Kong Gourmet. Located on the outskirts of Shenton Way and a stone's throw away from Outram MRT station, the big orange signboard waves to you right at 116 Neil Road.

Just like the signboard suggests, cute cartoon chef characters and a clean dining area greets its customers. My favourite colour for the restaurant's theme, so sunny and welcoming the moment you step inside. It is a great place to catch up with friends after a hard day's work...

Tang Hong Kong Gourmet is owned by none other than Celebrity Chef Mr Benson Tong.
He was CHAMPION in a Culinary Challenge before, awarded and featured on several publications. And for 100.3FM listeners, he is none other than Mr Simple, Benson himself!

Here are some of the must-try when you are there. 
Don't ever leave the restaurant without eating them!

Interesting drinks before we started eating...Water Chestnut with Sugar Cane (Left $1.50) / Pink Guava Drink (Right $1.50)
Tang's Special Spice Roast Duck (Half for $25)
The skin is roasted to the right crispiness, yet the meat is still kept juicy and tender. This dish is a must order when you drop by Tang HK Gourmet!

The next 3 dishes were taught to Benson through the program -  Buzzing Cashier  < 抢摊大行动 >. Check out the video above and you will know how delicious the dishes are!

Steam Fish Head with Chilli and Garlic Sauce ($16.90)
My favourite dish. Fish is good for your brains you know? Anyway, this dish is a big portion, you must definitely share this delicious tangy, slight spicy fish with your loved ones...
Pig Trotter Vinegar ($8.90)
It had the Mama's taste. Have it before any dish to whet your appetite and let me tell you, everyone at the table was scooping spoons after spoons of the vinegar to drink or to mix it into their rice.
Promotion - Order this in the Suite Set G at the same price with a bowl of rice and you get a FREE Hot Coffee/Tea!!!  
Tang's Special Spicy Coconut Prawn ($12.90)
I have never tasted anything like this before! The coconut taste is strong and the prawns are super fresh! There's a little Thai inspired taste in this dish....
Tang's Special Spicy Silver Fish ($6.90)
Fried little bites that will keep you munching down to the last piece.
Pork Cutlet with Fries ($8.90)
This is from Tang's Western Menu. It is normally served with fries.
The Pork Cutlet is so soft, it melts in the mouth on its own, don't even have to chew hard! Definitely a dish even Grandma & Grandpa can have!
Double Boil Papaya with White Fungi (Hot/Cold) ($4.60)
With White Fungus 雪耳 (great for anti-inflammatory and anti-tumor, best for soothing purposes like nourishing the bodies, healing dry coughs and clearing heat in the lungs) and Red Dates 紅棗 (used for treating the stomach and spleen), this is a must drink dessert after food. Papaya's my favourite and with such wonderful properties, why miss this?!

Here are some things to note from the menu. The sets are great for the lunch time...

Below is the video that kept playing on repeat mode on the TV in the restaurant. Clever idea to present the menu and it definitely got me wanting more and I couldn't resist going back the next week with my parents...

P.S.: I know this blog post took me longer than needed to write coz I'm always salivating while writing and I had too run off to go get some food. Imagine the resistance... LOL!
