Lunch at Legendary Hong Kong Cafe

No. 1 Jurong West Central 2, #03-08 Jurong Point Shopping Centre, Singapore 648886
Tel: 6794 1335

Legendary Hong Kong is located at the Mongkok district in Jurong Point, where two aisles of shops are furnished to imitate Hong Kong's popular Mongkok streets themselves. The restaurant is long, with storefronts displaying dimsum, roast meat, wanton noodles etc.

*Pris and I love Hong Kong food and culture, hence we were excited to give this a try. We both started with Iced Watercress Honey with Lemon drinks (SGD$3.20) - a refreshing, soothing drink that comes with a zesty twist.

We ordered a couple of appetisers to share, starting with the Beancurd Skin Shrimps Roll (SGD$4.50) - crispy beancurd skin enclosing bouny, luscious shrimps. It was an appetite whetting dish.

The other starter to share was the Rice Roll with BBQ Pork (SGD$5.00) - more often known as "chee cheong fun" - smooth enough paper thin rice skin filled with dices of honey- sweetened barbecued pork.

For mains, *Pris had the BBQ Combo Rice (roast duck and roast pork) at SGD$8.80. The portion was huge and filling, and the taste was quite nice with crispy duck skin. It was quite nice but not in-your-face impressive, merely good wholesome HK-style fare.

I had the Tossed Wanton Noodle (SGD$7.80) with shrimps wantons instead of minced pork. The noodle was springy in texture, and the wantons were filled with saccharine shrimp. The taste was fairly normal, but I have to mention that the portion and number of shrimp dumplings (6) were very generous.
