Tai Hing Roast

Chinese fast food, sort of, and possibly better than Maxims or Café de Coral. Tai Hing serves roast meats on rice like NY Noodletown, which is a style I can identify with and certainly get into. We kept it simple and ordered individual servings of roast goose and roast pork that came with rice and a few greens. Simple and satisfying. Other people had dipping sauces that I guess you have to ask for. Being in HK 24 hours at the point, we had already caught on to a few local customs. The big one being how everyone washes their chopsticks and bowls in hot tea that comes when you are seated. It's for rinsing not for drinking, and I'm still not exactly sure why its done. Luckily, I never made any drinking the fingerbowl water faux pas. I'd seen this done a couple times in NYC Chinatown and thought the people were freaks. Now I know that its classy.

    They wash their chopsticks & bowls in hot tea becuz they want to make sure it’s clean before using it.

    You should definately try the roast meats with the right sauces, ask for it next time. Roast pigs with hoisin sauce (the dark, sweet sauce, same as the one you’d eat with peking duck), roast duck/goose with plum sauce, soy duck with vinegar, garlic & chile, fried chicken with salt & pepper mix, soy/salt steamed chicken (and I think other chicken too) with ginger, green onion & oil sauce. I hope this helps! I’m craving all the BBQ meats as I type this!!

  3. Chris: I’ve never eaten roast pork with hoisin before. I did do the goose with plum sauce this week in HK, though. Love Chinese bbq meats.
