新園興記燒臘 (Sun Yuen Hing Kee) - ♕♕♕

  This Cantonese Roast Meat shop is located very close to my office, but on the opposite direction of 龍記 (Lung Kee), the roast shop which Anthony Bourdain had visited during his HK filming session.  This place doesn’t miss out on endorsement either as it has recently been included as a recommendation in the 2011 Michelin Guide.   Not that it is very good though ~ it’s roast meat quality is more or less just about average compared to any run of the mill shop.

Michelin Recommended ~  well, I might as well recommend you some alternatives..

Watercress and Dried Veggies Soup -
This was super salty for what is a common type of refreshing soup, with an influence of pork bones.  Completely incomprehensible as to why this was made this way ~  2/10

燒肉叉燒飯 -
The Roast Pork was not bad, but part of the skin no longer crunchy although the meat was moist.  The Char Siu was overly chopped up and dry in comparison.  Why this came with Ginger and Scallion sauce beats me, as I’d not ordered any chicken  ~  6/10


Roast Pork was acceptable, albeit some pieces had a chewy crackling skin.

I ordered Char Siu, out came Chopped Sui which was like little pieces of diced pork bits,
which had very little charred aroma or taste.  Way too dry.

Price: $30-40 per person
Score: ★★★☆☆☆

Opening Hours:
Mon to Sun -   08:00am - 19:45pm
G/F, 327-329 Queen's Road Central, Sheung Wan
