A true escape from the bustling city of HK, in an environment that is certainly more relaxing. A stroll in the promenade and in the public pier (there are two) is a rewarding experience. Take the time to watch the fishermen in their boats by the pier to segregate their catch in different containers: live fish and seafood for sale to whoever is interested.
The village itself offers a temple and a wide range of shops from Starbucks and McDonalds to classic chinese street restaurants. But the main offering is its seafood restaurants. For the Brits that miss home there is even a fish and chips shop (Chip In).
The 'must' visit restaurant for seafood lovers is Chuen Kee (any of the many by the pier). It is a Michelin recommended restaurant also endorsed by famous food writer Chua Lam. You can choose from a number of set menus with many offers. We chose the set menu for two where we could order 4 dishes out of the 14 offered.
We chose sauteed lobster with noodles and cheese sauce (apparently the shop's speciality), stir-fried clams with black bean sauce, steamed fish with ginger and spring onions, steamed crab with chinese wine, a vegetable dish (pakchoi with garlic), and fruit (watermelon). The cost of these was HK$418 which is a real bargain considering that all the dishes were in full portions.
We returned to HK with the 16 seater 1A minibus as suggested by other contributors who we thank for their suggestions. A wonderful day out which we strongly recommend!
