Hong Kong (part 2): The New Sweet Dynasty.


…continued from Hong Kong (part 1): Butterfly on Prat.

By the time we got out of our hotel rooms, it was already after lunch.  Gene suggested that we try The Sweet Dynasty for our first meal in Hong Kong.   However, we had a hard time finding it even if Gene is familiar with the area.  We went around and around, getting hungrier and hungrier for every block we walked.




The Sweet Dynasty should be along Canton Road but apparently, it relocated to another street.  Of course, we didn't know that so we just kept looking for it. When we finally gave up and decided to go somewhere instead, we saw The Sweet Dynasty sign!  I guess it's meant to be.




The Sweet Dynasty has been around for more than two decades and it's still been doing well after all these years.

It was already past noon when we arrived but the place was still full.  




Dianne and Gene are used to eating in Sweet Dynasty so we let them order what they thought we should try.  Here is a rundown of the things they ordered:

Stir-Fried White Radish Cake with XO Sauce/Bean Sprout
This was the first one that arrived.  It was a good way to start our meal.




Two Flavored: Roasted Pork Cha Shao & Soy Sauce Chicken (HKD110/$14.50)
Since I don't eat duck (too cute!), Di ordered the platter with pork and chicken instead.  This is good but a bit pricey.




Shrimp Wrapped in Homemade Rice Roll
Di said we should pour one of the sauces on top of the rice rolls before eating them.







Honey Roast Pork (Char Sui) Wrapped in Homemade Rice Roll
I like this best out of all the dishes we ordered.




Di also poured the sauce over these rice rolls.




Steamed Pork Spare Ribs with Black Bean and Special Sauce
T likes this.




Prawn Siumai in Truffle (HKD42/US$5.40)
We got two orders of this.  I haven't tried dim sum with truffle yet so this is a first.  T and I like this.




At first, we all just wanted dim sum only.  But these two couldn't help but ordering rice when all of our dishes came :D




Chicken Feet
Gene loves this so she got an order.  Ara and I have never tried it so Gene was egging us on to take a bite.





And we did!  It wasn't as bad as I thought it would be.  It tasted like, well, chicken.  




But I only had a little bite and didn't finish the whole foot.  I think it's because of the idea that I'm eating feet more than the taste itself.





Thumbs Up!
Good dim sum.

Thumbs Down!
A bit pricey.
Hard to find.

Verdict
Sweet Dynasty is a restaurant to try if you're in Hong Kong.  But there are other places that serve good dim sum also but at lower prices.
