Tin Lung Heen, Hong Kong

Some age-old expressions…

photo 1…Most notably, the ‘Home Team Advantage’ really hold true when it comes of upper echelon dining. What surely is the world most awarded (in terms of Michelin stars) City when it comes to Cantonese food, I honestly thought I had tried some rank contenders prior to this visit. Oh, how I was wrong.

One minute you can be standing in the urban jungle that is the Island, replete with towering skyscrapers and endless interconnected shopping centres – The next, you’re in old town Kowloon. Classic, jam-packed and swimming in neon signs, millions of locals all seemingly on the street at the same time, and rafts of food and electronic vendors. It is the Asian equivalent of New York City, and this place doesn’t sleep either.

Finishing off was fresh Wagyu beef with Chinese greens which was delectably tender.

4K6A1939Wash it all down with one of the best wine lists in Hong Kong, with feature wines from all over the globe.
