Xia Fei Society 霞飛會館 – A Glamorous Shanghainese Fare

Shanghainese food is a top-tier cuisine in Hong Kong. And while we are already bored of Crystal Jade or Shanghai Min, Xia Fei Hui Guan will be another notch to go in terms of its diverse range of fancy appetizer, dim sum and solid sharing platters, everything you would expect from a Shanghainese restaurant.

Two plates of munchies are brought to us, which is roasted peanut with seaweed and worth noting green papaya slices marinated in sweet vinegar. So rarely seen and appetizing as a welcome starter.

The vegetarian wraps are covered with glossy sheets of crispy bean curd, but I assume more veggie fillings which only limited to mushroom, whereas the salted pork soup has well-cooked bamboo shoots and yuba knots that soak up the rich and flavorful broth, but it is too salty for my liking.

Then there are two highlights included large shrimps being deep-fried and sinfully tossed in golden-orange egg yolk. More are those rice krispy on the side that come as a surprise.

The melt-in-the-mouth short ribs is another perfect dish that impresses us for the tenderness and the sweet seasoned sauce.

Make sure to get the signature pan-fried beef pastry and finish with desserts such as the typical egg white souffle rolled in powered sugar; and an exquisite deep fried glutinous rice dumpling filled with piping hot cashew nuts cream.

After all, it is a perfect family gathering option. Happy Mother’s Day!
