Eating at Mijas Spanish restaurant totally makes you forget you are in the shopping haven of southeast Asia. The relaxed atmosphere and the bay side feel of the restaurant would remind you of your favorite beach getaway.
I found it unusual to be savoring Spanish cuisine in Hong Kong when I should be sampling all kinds of dimsum, Peking duck, roasted goose, suckling pig, steamed seafood, and all the different kinds of street food.
Mijas Spanish restaurant is located at the Stanly Waterfront Park, which is located at the southern part of Hong Kong island. I've been to Hong Kong many times and I never saw this part of the island until this time. The place is lovely and quiet, unlike the bustling parts of Causeway Bay or Tsim Tsa Shui.
For starters, we had tapas and oysters. The tapas or thinly sliced meat were very good. Delicioso as how the Spaniards would say. Then came the pricey raw oysters that cost us HK$120 for three pieces. Wherever they got those oysters, they still tasted like oysters anywhere else. I could have bought kilos and kilos of oysters back home with that amount of money.
For the main course, we had roasted suckling pig and paella. If the oysters were disappointing, these two dishes more than made up for it. The roasted suckling pig was tasty and tender. And the skin was crispy! The paella was well-cooked and flavorful. It came with a generous toppings of large prawns, chicken, meat, and other seafood.
And while you enjoy your dinner at Mijas, you get to be entertained with their in-house singers who go from table to table to sing your favorite songs.
