Pak Loh Chiu Chow Restaurant

Pak Loh is an old school Chiu Chow restaurant in Hong Kong and it boasts to serve the most authentic dishes for many years. Having tried it a number of times I have to say it's pretty average and overpriced.

Cabbage in broth (HK$68). Nothing unusual.

Sliced goose(HK$90). I liked how lean the meat was and that we got a fair amount of quantity. Probably the best dish for the night.

Fried chicken with basil leaves(HK$80). Way too greasy and bland.

Fried pomfret fillets in soya sauce (HK$120). The fish was meaty and had a nice texture but the seasoning was too salty.

Fried egg omelet with whitebait (HK$80). It was not bad in taste but it lacked whitebait - I think there were 3 in total.
We also ordered some steamed melon peel (I have no idea what it was! It's so expensive too at HK$150), a big bowl of minced pork congee (HK$80) and the bill for 4 came to HK$830 with service. Very expensive indeed for this kind of quality!
