Shun Hing Hong (順興行) - ♕♕♕♕

This groceries shop normally only operates as a Dried Seafood or Bird’s Nest supplier.
Come during its off-peak hours around 2:30pm to 4:00pm however (official hours might be 2:00 to 6:00pm, but its not very trustworthy, believe me!!) and one surprisingly finds a long queue lining outside that prematurely rolled-down steel gate, yet people still wait patiently outside to stock up on their Thousand Year Old Duck Eggs or Salted Duck Eggs ~ its supposedly the same batch supplied to HK Michelin restaurants within the same area at just a fraction of the price, the same eggs as served in Yung Kee 庸記.

There’s a queue here always, after around 2:00 to 2:30pm.. the latter is the safer bet

This lady is polite but obviously, she doesn’t need your business.
She’s always working at her own, very slow snail pace….
That’s my allocation of Thousand Year Old Duck Eggs right there..

Cantonese, Thousand Year Old eggs…

皮蛋 -
For some reason the batch I had a year ago tasted slightly better, much runnier than this recent batch - hence a marking down in its score.  These also carried more ammonia taste ~ 7.5/10
*Resource photo from Yung Kee:
Usually, its best eaten with Pickled Young Ginger,
which are similar to Japanase Gari!

Instead of pairing them with the Pickled Ginger bought from 九龍醬園 located close to here, it can also pair very well with Dried Pork Floss…


(I think this Photo was never meant to be shown… Shoosh!)

Price: $15 Per Person for 4 Eggs.  A Bargain.
Score: ★★★★☆☆
Opening Hours:
Mon – Sat:   14:00 ~ 18:00pm
Note: its more like 14:30 ~ 16:00pm these days, to be safe

Address: 上環永樂街61號地下
