Pak Loh Chui Chow @ Elements, Hong Kong

Founded by Mr. S H Pui in 1967, Pak Loh Chiu Chow has been serving traditional Chui Chow food for more than four decades. 
Cold Steamed Crab - Food often tastes better when you eat with your hands - Each bite was smooth and rich.
Fried Fish fillet - Perfectly crisped! Warning : these deep fried fish fillet can be quite addictive.
Omelette with Baby Oysters - The fresh bivalves binded well with the omelette, thanks to the right mixture of starch. The gummy texture left us overwhelmed.
Braised Duck Liver - Duck liver is truly global. The creamy liver swam perfectly well in the soy sauce. 
Steamed Har Gow (Shrimp Bonnet) - The shrimp was fresh and the skin was translucent. Even though the ingredients were simple, the flavor evoked the essence of Chinese cuisine. No wonder it is listed as number 34 on the World's 50 most delicious food compiled by CNN Go in 2011. 
Sliced Octopus - Another sublime snack option : chewy and pliant!

Verdict: SOMEWHAT SMITTEN

  4. I like that you feature eateries from different part of the world. Crabs and more crabs for me plus the liver too. My kind of food all the way and btw, I cannot remember when was the last time I taste octopus.
