While having porridge for lunch earlier, we shared table with a friendly local who highly recommended that we try out 坤記煲仔小菜 Kwan Kee Claypot Rice. We were going to meet Mr D for dinner and he too mentioned that he failed to walk in without reservations few weeks back for this eatery, because it was just oh-so-crowded.
These led us to walk back to make dinner reservations there, haha!
We managed to make reservations for 3 persons at 6pm in Mandarin with a rather grumpy lady. Do note that there might be time limit for eating (ours was till 7:30pm).
We ended up having the 招牌猪豬煲 Signature Pork Bone Soup (HK$208), a 鴛鴦腸煲仔飯 Preserved Sausage Claypot Rice (HK$75), and 蒜茸炒西蘭花 Fried Broccoli with Garlic (HK$60).
As the sausages were quite salty already, we did not add in too much dark sauce into the claypot rice. The sausages were aromatic and awesome, especially the liver sausage! We also liked the crispy and lightly charred bits of rice.
Broccoli was usually quite a safe dish and we enjoyed the crunchy broccoli that helped to make our meal a balanced one.
The pork bone soup was deliciously sweet and soothing for the soul, but erm, on hindsight, I think this was supposed to be a hot pot base, which meant that we were supposed to order other ingredients for the soup 😛
It did come with a plate of raw vegetables, and was served hot pot style and kept hot on gas. We kept requesting to add soup though, hehe.
Overall, it was a great choice for dinner on a cold night, and a great time catching up with an old friend 🙂
