  • Harbour Restaurant

This two-year old restaurant owned by local celebrity Cecilia Cheung’s mother is just as popular now as it was when it first opened. Crowds flock to this scenic harborside resto on a nightly basis, so reservations are highly recommended.

Harbour Restaurant flaunts its catch in outdoor tanks and an easy-breezy environment that goes great with beer. The highlights are obviously marine-based, but you’ll find a host of other classic Chinese dishes here, too.

We started with a corn and pork bone soup with coco de mer served in a ceramic pot. The broth was full-bodied and rich with a meaty flavor, but it has enough delicate vegetable essence to balance the palate.

We then, as per the staff’s recommendation, ordered two types of mid-sized yellow-finned sea bream: one fried and one steamed with spring onions. The fried sea bream came with golden crispy skin and firm, briny meat that paired especially well with a thickened sweet soy sauce on the side.

The steamed version proved again that this simple Chinese method of treating fish has no comparable equivalent. With a mild oil-tinged soy sauce and lots of fragrant greens accompanying the thin-skinned fish, we got to taste each succulent morsel for what it was.

We were also adamant fans of the chili chicken, which was crispy on contact but melted in a fiercely tender symphony in the mouth. The daily vegetables, fried tofu with mushrooms and asparagus and fishballs are also highly recommended.

Go with a big group to take advantage of all the goodies they have on offer.
