Bauhinia Kitchen 紫荊閣 – Traditional Handcrafted Cantonese Cuisine

Bauhinia Kitchen is a Cantonese restaurant belonging to Hotel Sav at Hung Hom. The area isn’t as huge as the usual Chinese restaurants but it is still spacious and comfortable. Specializes in handcrafted Cantonese cuisines, they offer many local favourites and traditional dishes which most of them have to be reserved one day in advance.

A so-call “Beggar’s Chicken”, which is basically a baked chicken wrapped in lotus leaf. It is stuffed with many treasurable Chinese ingredients including red date, black fungus, fresh lily buds, also shredded pork to give not only abundant flavor but keeping the whole chicken moist and succulent.

The soup of the day is a double-boiled fish soup with yam and Chinese barleys; whilst the scallop toast is deep-fried with egg batter, golden and crunchy with a sprig of cilantro and sweet and sour dip on the side.

The steamed tofu skin rolls aren’t very impressive because it’s too saucy and the sauce itself is too salty and not tasty for my liking.

The stir-fried egg white is well-scrambled with a deliberate amount of chopped fish maw and crab meat, but the sesame oil flavor is too overpowering.

Last but not the least, a deep fried dumpling is served with a simple broth, which is intentionally used to dip with the dumpling.

We got a huge lotus seed birthday bun to celebrate the Mid Autumn Festival. A total of 24 buns including 12 mini and 12 large ones, the former has less lotus seed paste while the latter has a salted egg yolk in the middle. Both are steaming hot, fluffy and sweet.
