Review: Celestial Court Chinese Restaurant (Hong Kong)
Celestial Court Chinese Restaurant
is an award winning restaurant serving excellent dim sum and more. Absolutely heavenly!
Chicken Dumpling Soup
This chicken dumpling soup is an award winning soup. The soup comes with a load of ingredients. As for as I can tell, the soup comes with sliced abalone, conpoy, fish maw, crabmeat, mock shark fins and a large chicken dumpling. The large dumpling has a soft skin wrapper with soft minced chicken meat bits, soft mushroom bits, prawn and a large chunk of crabmeat. The soup is very flavourful and tastes absolutely heavenly!
When it comes to having dim sum, having a serving of har gau is a pretty standard thing. This har gau has a thin chewy and slightly sticky skin wrapping up large prawns with bamboo shoot. The prawns are fresh with a hint of sweetness. This har gau is definitely a good one. Lovely!
When there is har gau, siu mai comes naturally too. This siu mai has large prawn with minced meat and mushrooms, topped with some crab roe. It is done so well that you can taste the individual ingredients distinctively. Tastes so lovely!
Vegetable Spring Roll
The spring roll has a very crispy skin with a filling of moist mixed vegetables and mushroom. Nice light flavourings. One word. Good.
Fried Turnip Cake with XO Sauce
The cubes of fried radish cake are very crispy outside and really soft inside, and you can taste the lap cheong bits inside. The XO sauce is spicy and very flavourful, with nice meaty bits of dried shallots and dried shrimps. The fried radish cake matched with XO sauce is simply divine. This is a personal favourite.
Shrimp Cheung Fun
This cheung fun is very exquisitely made with bite-sized pieces of cheung fun rolling up individual whole prawns. The cheung fun is soft with a slightly chewy texture and the prawns tastes fresh. Comes served with a slightly sweet tasting soya sauce on the side. I like this cheung fun too. Good!
Mango Pamelo Sago
This bowl of mango pamelo sago has a very nice mango flavoured soup. It is sweet with a slight tarty taste of pamelo. Contains mango bits, pamelo and sago. This dessert is also a personal favourite. Highly recommended.
