[Hong Kong] Sha Tin 18 - Best Peking Duck in Hong Kong?
Rating: ❤❤❤❤1/2 (4.5/5)
I've been wanting to visit Sha Tin 18 at Hyatt Regency since I hear that it serves one of the best Peking duck in Hong Kong and when I saw one of their new dishes - the Flambé Char Siu with Chinese rose wine - making the rounds on social media, I immediately gathered my friends to check it out since I love char siu! Both the Peking duck and Flambe Char Siu needed to be pre-ordered so we ordered the rest of the dishes once we got there.
1. Crispy duck skin with a sprinkle of white sugar
2. Breast meat with pancake, cucumber, leeks and soya bean paste
3. Thigh meat with pancake, cucumber, leeks, soya bean paste and a touch of garlic paste
The next item we were all waiting anxiously for was the Flambé Char Siu with Chinese Rose Wine (火焰玫瑰露叉燒)! The flambé created an extra layer of caramelization and char on the edges of the pork which was not only tasty but also super fragrant from the Chinese rose wine. It also came with a bowl of rice where you can drizzle pig lard on it (豬油撈飯) - this is just comfort food at its best and I would eat this everyday if I could!
The entire room was filled with the enticing aroma of the Chinese rose wine while our char siu was being prepared.
Drizzle as much pig lard and sweet soy sauce onto the rice as you wish.
The Steamed Crab with Egg, Minced Pork and Preserved Soya Beans (豉香蒸鮮膏蟹缽) looked really cute with the crab shell and claws sticking out of the pot but the flavors were kind of disappointing as the minced pork turned out rather bland.
The Steamed Garoupa Belly with Preserved Green Beans and Wild Chilli (野山椒酸辣豆角蒸龍躉斑腩) was surprisingly tasty as the green beans garnish on top was super flavorful (albeit a bit salty) - best to be eaten with a bowl of rice.
