Legendary Hong Kong @ Jurong Point 2

~Invited Session~

Opened in July 2014, Legendary Hong Kong is the first restaurant in Singapore to showcase the award-winning “Irish duck” from Silver Hill Farm on a menu that spans across four themes - Roasted Meats, Noodles and Congee, Dim Sum and Bakery.

Infact, we were lost when the escalator brought us to a floor of lights completely looking just like the streets of Hong Kong.

7-up with Salty Lemon ($3.20)

I have never had salty 7-up before and this was definitely a first. Fizzy with a salty aftertaste, this definitely needed some getting used to.

Steamed Shrimp Dumplings ($5.50)

Dimsum at dinner felt like all day brunch, pedestrian in my opinion.

Steamed Egg Custard Bun ($4.00)

Irresistible alert on when there's egg custard bun on the menu!

Flowy and fluffy, just missing out on the richness. One's good, two's perfect.

BBQ Twin Combo- Crispy Pork Belly and Roasted Duck ($16.80)

With all the accolades for their roast meats, I thought the pork belly fared better than the roasted duck. It could be the post-Hong Kong syndrome where roast geese triumphed, this duck undoubtedly had a certain juiciness in the meat and fattiness under the crisp skin.  

Wonton Noodle in Soup ($6.80)

For those who are familiar with MAK’s Noodle (麥奀雲吞麵世家), one of the World’s cheapest Michelin Starred restaurant, their noodles are undoubtedly considered to be one of the best in Hong Kong. Today, the same chef who made the noodles at MAK’s Noodle, Master Chef Ho Yum (何 鑫), works in the kitchen of
Legendary Hong Kong.

Having been used to bamboo noodles, these noodles airflown from Hong Kong are springier and had a mild alkaline aftertaste. That being said, this is really close to what I have eaten at the equivalents in Hong Kong. The rich broth was so good, I drank it on its own!

Tossed Noodle with Shrimp Roes ($7.80)

 This is uncommon in Singapore and I remember having very memorable noodle dishes in Hong Kong. Tasting just like mee pok and I could do with a more generous portion of shrimp roe.

Tossed Nissin Noodle with Pork Chop ($7.80)

No surprise to find a category of dishes consisting of instant noodle, given how the Hong Kong community counts this as a staple next to bread and rice. The juicy pork chop with sweet sauce tossed noodles were actually quite gratifying.

Thick Rice Flour Roll with Deep-fried Shrimp Spring Rolls ($5.50)

Fried prawn fritters wrapped with rice flour was a delicious dish, the prawn fritters remained crisp throughout the meal.

Sauteed Turnip Cake with XO Sauce ($5.50)

Wok fried with a lovely char fragrance, this is one of my favourites.

Congee with Century Egg and Shredded Pork ($6.80)

Century egg with shredded pork is my favourite choice for congee, topped with a crispy fried dough fritter I am in for a slurping good time!

Custard Crust Bun with Butter ($2.50)

It was quite a bummer when the custard crust bun with salted egg yolk custard was sold out - turns out, this was just as good. Loved the sweet crust bun and that slab of butter that chased all the blues away. I wish I had more space to try their other fresh bakes, this would have been great as breakfast!

Cha Chaan Tang experience gets authentic at Legendary Hong Kong with hits and misses - the one thing that is missing then is rough and loud service.
