Tao Heung Restaurant @ Tsim Sha Tsui, Hong Kong

Tuesday, November 10, 2009

Chinese are renowned for their appreciation of good food. They frequently dine out at restaurants and demand excellence in cooking and use of high-quality ingredients. Restaurants are also where Chinese regularly gather to mingle and socialise, making them an essential constituent in the famous Chinese ‘yum cha’ culture in Hong Kong.
“Tao Heung" specializes in the hotpot business. It assimilates different culture and maintains its original characteristics at the same time. In order to fulfill different customers' need, "Tao Heung" targets in creative and healthy hot pot food. Looking at their décor, they adopt a new modern Chinese decoration design with comfortable spacing between tables. A little bit of their history, since 1991 and up until now, Tao Heung has built a network of more than 60 restaurants in Hong Kong (50+) and Southern China (10+). These restaurants are at prime locations hence enjoying high customer flows and draw patronage of primarily affluent middle-end diners.
First stop, the Stir-fried Seafood in hot pot. This dish is not quite there yet in a sense that it’s just a so-so dish. However, the freshness of the clam is good indeed.
Next is the Roast Goose, it is a variety of siu mei, or roasted meat dishes, within Cantonese cuisine. It is made by roasting it with seasoning in a charcoal furnace at high temperature. Roasted geese of high quality have crisp skin with juicy and tender meat. Slices of roasted goose are generally served with plum sauce. Here, it’s quite good but a little but cold, that’s all.
Then the mixed vegetables in hot pot, chef stir-fried vegetables like broccoli, Chinese mushroom, needle mushroom, abalone mushroom, tong fen (glass noodle) and prawns. As claimed that they are good with hot pot dishes, no doubt this is delicious and quite a healthy dish.
Without the hot pot, this dish is stir-fried broccoli with scallops. Taste wise is delicious. Yum yum
To the dessert, this is a plum flower with red bean pastry. Top layer is the plum flowers and the layer below is the red bean, giving the sweet and sour taste. It’s unique and tasty.
Lastly, this sweet soup is made with black sesame seeds, it is a form of tong sui, or sweet soup (similar to Western pudding). The main ingredient is crushed black sesame seeds in a flour form. It is boiled with hot water. Sometimes, granulated sugar is added, though the sesame seeds are usually sweet enough by default. It is rumored to help prevent gray hair.
