Superstar Seafood Restaurant, Hong Kong

Superstar was actually the first place we went to when we got to HK. It was sort of Recommended by N in one of his emails to me, and since it was very near our Hotel, we decided to give it a try.

According to N, this restaurant has very good Seafood, but again since we had our kids (7 and 4), it was quite hard to order what we really wanted. So again we decided to order the safe stuff...stuff that we would like and that our kids would also eat.

We started out with a simple crab and corn soup. It was quite good and our kids enjoyed it since it was something familiar to them. Then we had the usual dim sum (pork and shrimp) very decent and tasty..and very large compared to what you get sometimes in Chinese Restaurants in Manila.

Then we had 2 more dishes: Deep fried Siopao, and Superior Royal Crab Roe Dumpling. This was very very good, a sort of Xiao Long Bao. As you bite it, the juices explode in your mouth releasing all the flavors. This was their specialty I think and was one of the highlights of the meal. The deep fried Siopao was excellent and it reminded me of the Fried Siopao I have in Ongpin st. Binondo.

Over all we enjoyed this simple meal and the best part, my kids enjoyed it too. I have to slowly break them in and educate them in trying as many different types of foods as possible.

I have to slowly break them in and educate them in trying as many different types of foods as possible. - Dim sum in HK is a very good way to start indeed!

Will be in HK next month for an eating trip as well, but, after being reminded by your pictures, I don't know if I can wait that long.

"In my recent trip to Clark Freeport, I chanced upon an amazing restaurant inside Mimosa. It's just past the Holiday Inn. It was better than the high-end restaurants in 5-star hotels in Manila! I think the name is YATS Restaurant. It is not that expensive but the food is great and they have an incredible wine cellar too."

"I have to share this with you - the lamb rack at YATS Restaurant is out of this world. Aside from the fact the lamb is cooked to perfection, the sidings are even more exciting. This is real fine-dining stuff, best I have seen in this country, and second to none that I have seen in other cities including Singapore and Tokyo."
