Lan Kwai Fong

Yeah its Lan Kwai Fong nope not that street of fun and booze in Hong Kong, rather, its this little place in Dubai that serves Cantonese food and Peking Duck.

It is not located in a big hotel but rather it is a standalone restaurant in Oud Metta near Lamcy Plaza …

As there is only 2 of us and both gals there is no way we could finish a Peking duck on our own so we had to try the other stuff …

The appetizers: Caramelized peanuts with sesame and pickled vegetables! Love love love them … the cucumber, cabbage, carrots and chilli that has been pickled in a vinegar and sugar solution … they really get the taste bud working … Caramelized peanuts with sesame, need I say more??? A prelude to the delectable dishes that were coming up next!

Lau Fu Tong (Old fire soup) or simply soup of the day that has been double boiled with a strong flame for hours is mindblowingly in its simplicity. No complex expensive ingredient just good control of the fire and a great chef. It is brewed with winter melon, chicken, red dates and a host of other ingredients. No picture cos I forgot and just started drinking soup!

Seafood, tofu and vegetable in a claypot. Simply stir fried and braised in claypot. Scallops, prawns, fish, clams are found in this dish!

Who can forget sweet and sour dishes when you visit Chinese restaurants??? The chef recommended the prawns and boy were they fresh!

After all that has been said, I must admit that I missed ordering my food in Cantonese!
