Discovered this little gem while exploring Shek Tong Tsui… I was looking for this cafe that I had read about, only to find that they were closing for the day. But then I saw the the bright lights of Zhen Restaurant from a distance, and decided to check it out. So there’s always a silver lining!
We (Edwin and I) enjoyed the food, and the service was lovely. Two weeks later, we actually headed back with a couple of friends in tow! The dishes below are from two separate visits, so brace yourselves for the slew of food pictures ahead…
Lotus Paste Puff 籠相思
Foie Gras Spring Roll 鵝肝醬蝦春卷
Hand-pulled Chicken with Cucumber Salad 胡麻手撕雞
Fortune Golden Pot 黑松露燒金窩
Shrimps & Cheese Dumpling 墨汁芝士蝦餃

The piggy and panda buns were new, so I don’t have the names for them.
Osmanthus Poached Pear 桂花燉雪梨
The words “fusion dim sum” might turn some people off, but I generally don’t mind giving fusion cuisine a try. After all, these days our palates are influenced by so many different cultures, is fusion really so out there? Also, I’m a sucker for cute dim sum. I especially liked the lotus paste “birds” and the lobster bisque “shrimp”, and the dessert was AMAZING. One of my absolute favourite desserts, and I’m usually a chocolate and ice-cream kind of girl.
Alright folks, till next time!
