I’ve long wanted to go to this restaurant within Print Hall at Brookfield Place, and the wait was well worth it! Named after Hong Kong’s daily rag, it offers south-east Asian street food. And street food indeed – I ended up using my hands for the majority (with the appropriate company!!).
The meals come out when they’re ready which I prefer with share food so you’re not overwhelmed. The crispy soft shell crab, watercress, ruby grapefruit, nam jim ($18) was everything you’d expect from soft shell crab – delicious!
The saltwater duck, spring onion, flower bun, hoisin ($24) was basically a duck pancake which is one of my favourite dishes to eat and call me lazy but I like mine assembled for me at the table by the waiter – it’s all part of the experience I say!
Gaiyang spring chicken, sate sauce, cucumber ($34) was a bit more exy as it was a very generous serve and four people could have enjoyed a decent amount. I can be a bit wary of chicken but this was well-cooked and basted in flavour. We also enjoyed the pad thai, prawns, sweet pork and chilli jam ($26) which lacked a bit of punch. I don’t recall the pork at all and you had to go digging for the few prawns.
The service was excellent and staff were well-versed in the menu. A most enjoyable experience!
