Being one of the restaurants that I would rate as very good, as well as one that I blogged about in my first few posts, I am glad to see them opening a new branch in Causeway Bay, I actually found out about it when I ate at Din Tai Fung (鼎泰豐) more than two months ago, but I forgot to mention that in my blog. Well, this new branch is not really very far away from the old one but it added some convenience for me. It is located at Regal Hotel, near Victoria Park, and walking distance from Sogo.

Address in Chinese: 銅鑼灣怡和街68號1樓
Address in English: 1/F, 68 Yee Woo Street, Causeway Bay
Tel: 2504 4228


^All three are good!


Excellent shrimp springroll

I feel that the quality in terms of food is as good as the original branch, and the service is ok too, for me this location saves me some walking, so I would try to eat there more often now.

When I saw Kin's Kitchen (留家廚房) being mentioned in michelin guide, I was not really that surprised, yes, it is located at a rather ugly street under a highway bridge, but they do have something special, well, don't get me wrong, they may not be as good as the guide says, and not even having that many great dishes, but for me, having one very special one is enough for me to say something good about it.

OK, it is all about the smoked chicken (留家煙燻雞), this is a dish which not many restaurants can prepare well, some would even smoke the chicken to turn char, or too dry or too smoky in smell, but Kin's Kitchen does it so well that the chicken is smoked to the right extent, the meat would remain tender and juicy, and the smell and taste are also very unique. At lunch hours they even offer a one-man set that includes soup of the day, a nice vegetable in soup dish, and a free dessert.

The owner of the restaurant Mr. Lau Kin Wai (劉健威) is a famous columnist in a local business newspaper, I read his articles regularly, and I think he really knows about food in depth, more than an year ago I  treated an important guest at Kin's Kitchen and dine at the second floor, which is a home-style dining environment we called 私房菜, which literally means Private Kitchen, most of the food were good though I am not totally amazed by everyone (and the price was very high too), but the smoked chicken left very big impression indeed. Unfortunately, that was a very important guest and it was inappropriate to take pictures.

So this is another eatery in Tin Hau that you should try out, and nearby you can also find an Indian food restaurant named Palki (皇轎) that many say are good, since I am not fond of Indian food (I tried only once when I travelled in London a few years ago), I really can't give any comments.
