Old Hong Kong Dishes
Turning ordinary into extraordinary, Harbour Grand Hong Kong’s Chinese Restaurant Kwan Cheuk Heen has ventured into the time tunnel and brought the sumptuous old dishes in the 1950-60s Hong Kong to the modern days. Travel back to the good old days in July and August, and savour the good memories.
“Supply was limited in the past. People appreciated all they had, e.g. every part of a duck could be turned into a tempting dish without wastage. Yes, it means much labour to our chefs. However, as long as we see faces of respect and satisfaction, that is all that we want,” expressed Antoine Babin, Director of Food & Beverage, Harbour Grand Hong Kong.
It takes much time and work to make this dish, simple the name might seem: Sautéed Chicken Wings Stuffed with Shredded Bamboo Shoots, Black Mushrooms and Yunnan Ham. First, chicken wings are marinated in double-boiled rice wine, then de-boned, and stuffed in bamboo shoots, black mushrooms and Yunnan ham. Finally pan-fried till golden brown. Crispy outside, juicy and crunchy inside.
To revive this close-to-extinct favourite - Deep-fried Duck Webs and Chicken Liver Rolled with Chicken Intestine – our chefs will present in its most traditional way, using chicken intestine to wrap duck webs and chicken liver. After deep-frying, honey will be added on top, as a final savoury touch.
A bowl of rice is probably the best companion to this Braised Pork Belly, Bean Curd Sheets and Chive in Shrimp Paste Sauce. It is composed of simple and easy-to-access ingredients: pork belly, bean curd sheets, ginger, shallots and onions. The essence lies on the shrimp paste which goes perfectly well with pork belly. No wonder why this Guangdong delicacy was so popular amongst the mass public in the past.
More are on the list, e.g. Deep-fried Pork Belly Stuffed with Shrimp Paste, Crab Meat and Roe, Braised Minced Fish Soup, and Roasted Chinese Pork Sausage with Honey Sauce, to name a few. Re-created after more than five decades, these dishes will be a good reminiscent of the good old days for the familiar generation and probably a creation for the generation X & Y.
