We were taken out to lunch at Yung Kee Restaurant (鏞記酒家). I think it's overhyped. And you know what? The porridge wasn't as fabulous as I expected! Not the fish or the century egg porridge. But they were decent. I had A LOT to eat. The man thoroughly enjoyed his beef brisket noodles. "It's better than London's!" He declared. I promptly and rudely burst out laughing. Oh dear me.
There was plenty of food on the table. Roast goose, soya chicken, pigeon, char siew, roast belly pork and beef. Good golly. That wasn't all. There were two kinds of fish done two ways- steamed and fried. Prawns, scallops, clams and crabs. There were three kinds of vegetables and seafood. It was amazing. It was more ridiculous that the table finished everything in two hours. What a banquet.
I saw many tables buy stuff and had them packed into rather big boxes. There was nothing that I would buy as no one at home would appreciate them. So I stuck to the rather fun job of staring at the other tables that tapau-ed everything in the plural- roast goose, century eggs and all. I marvelled at how on people were at lugging such bulky and unwieldy items home. But I understand their enthusiasm, which is the same way as how I've gone hysterical over transporting bags of coffee and other items of groceries home.
