Old Town Hong Kong Cuisine
Split into two levels, this casual eatery isn't typical of most Chinatown spots. The interior stands out with swinging globes, recycled timber finishes and exposed brick. Some classic touches remain however, the requisite water feature is affixed on the wall; barbeque meats hang in the kitchen window and tanks glisten with seafood.
Bring a crowd and take some time to sift through the extensive menu. Start with steamed pocket buns filled with your choice of Peking duck, roasted or barbequed pork served on wooden boards, or try an array of yum cha-sized plates including grilled green onion pancakes and xiao long bao dumplings.
The Peking duck at Old Town is excellent, the skin crisp and bronze, the meat succulent. Try it in pancakes or as duck san choy bao. Share larger plates of grandma’s spicy bean curd with pork mince and rice or a generous serving of pipis in XO sauce.
