Legendary Hong Kong is a simple Hong Kong-styled restaurant or Cha Chan Teng as it is commonly known in Hong Kong. It managed to bring together the best of such a place and executed it brilliantly in Singapore. The food is top notch, the prices are affordable, the service is efficient and the place is clean. The simple metal framed chairs, tightly arranged tables, mosaic tiles, chubby booth seats and walls filled with tacky photos really give the place an authentic feel.
There are 4 category of food on offer in Legendary Hong Kong. The most popular category is the Roast Duck & Char Siew and that’s what we kicked off with. The London Roast Duck lived up to the hype. The skin was crispy, meat was tasty and juicy. Brings me back to famous roast duck restaurant by the name of Four Seasons in London. The roast pork was also great. Crunchy and thin skin crowning a tasty pork chunk. Hainanese chicken was soft and juicy. Delicious with the ginger and spring onion condiment. Char Siew was meaty with a good touch of sweetness. Overall, top class barbecue meat. Good ingredients executed brilliantly.
Moving on to their Noodle & Congee (Porridge) menu, I zoomed in to their selection of Wan Tan Mee. As you will find in Hong Kong, there are a wide variety of meat or toppings/side combination that you can have. I picked the Braised Beef Brisket & Tendon Soup Noodles. I am not a fan of the Hong Kong style Wan Tan Mee, where the noodles are done in a more al-dante manner and there is a strong taste of alkaline but thought i have to try it again. The braised beef brisket and tendons were wholesome. Melt-in-your-mouth juicy beef. The soup was tasty but not over-powering the subtly of the dish. A good wholesome bowl of noodles.
3rd up was their Traditional Bread and Tart menu. It had to be the Custard Crust Bun (or also known as Pineapple Bun), a Crispy Egg Tart and a nice hot cup of homely Hong Kong Milk Tea. For the uninitiated, the Hong Kong Milk Tea is a unique strong black tea served with evaporated milk to give it silkiness and normally gently sweeten. They do a wicked one here. The bun and egg tart was good, but was a touch cold for my liking.
I didn’t get to try anything from their Dim Sum menu this time round. Will be back to fulfil the task.
This restaurant is kids friendly. There are baby chairs and plenty of room for prams. It charges 10% for service charge and 7% GST.
