FOLLOW THE LEGEND – LEGENDARY HONG KONG

Dining | Written By, NOW!Singapore | November 17th, 2015

Those looking for top-notch Hong Kong cuisine won’t be surprised to learn that one of the best examples can be found nestled in Singapore’s very own Mongkok District stretch, located at Jurong Point. Close to the many bargain shopping malls and outlet stalls in the Boon Lay/Jurong area in northeast Singapore, this colourful section of the mall offers lots of HK-inspired fashion, gifts and most importantly, food.

LHK Rice Roll with Prawns & Chives

One of the restaurants here, Legendary Hong Kong, has been drawing in the crowds since it opened its doors and for very good reason. Determined to offer exactly the kind of food found in Hong Kong’s better kitchens (and not a Singapore imitation) the owners have flown in a culinary team that has earned its stripes in a number of respected HK restaurants. Also flown in are the specific ingredients required to distinguish the Hong Kong style of cooking from other regional varieties.

London Roast Duck

Not all ingredients are brought in from Hong Kong though. Following the growing trend in Chinese restaurants for a London-style roast duck, prepared using the highly prized ducks from Silver Hill Farm in Ireland, Legendary Hong Kong is the first restaurant in Singapore to offer these premium birds on their menu and the dish is already their best seller.

Beef Brisket Noodle

We recommend the Barbequed Twin Combo of Roast Duck and Crisp Pork Belly, an excellent dish that highlights Chef Siu Chin Ho’s mastery. To accompany the meats, there is an extensive menu of over 300 dishes, split into sections that include Noodles and Congee, Dim Sum and Bakery. From the Noodles and Congee section, we tried the Tossed Beef Brisket and Tendon Noodles and the Congee with Century Egg and Shredded Pork and were not disappointed. Also recommended are the Rice Rolls with Minced Beef and Coriander and the Steamed Beef Balls with Beancurd Skin. Of course, no visit would be complete without multiple helpings of their delectable Char Siew Pau and the divine Custard Crust Buns with Salty Egg Yolk – definitively leave space for these!

The restaurant’s casual dining area, adorned with huge images of Hong Kong harbour and the city’s dynamic cityscape, make it an excellent choice for both lunch and dinner during the week, or an extended session of dim sum on the weekend.
