Pearl Vietnamese - Hong Kong
(852) 2524 9435
G/F 7 Wo On Lane, Central, Hong Kong
Vietnamese restaurant in Lan Kwai Fong serving Vietnamese food as well as fast food variations. Favorite for local businessman and this place has the best sweet/sour/tangy spice sauce that it serves up at each table in pitchers as everyone douses their food with it. I could eat here for days and still want to come back for more.
Very very much a local favorite and hole in the wall. Warning - potentially very scary to newcomers but worth the adventure.
Spring Rolls - The BEST! Just order them and eat. If you don't like them, there's something wrong with you.
Frogs Legs - Tastes like chicken - ok but messy and lots of bones.
Ketchup Rice with Beef cubes - Good stuff. Not terribly healthy but great filler. The ketchup rice is red with a sweet tomato flavor and the beef cubes are seasoned with a Worcestershire flavor. It also comes with a dollup of mayonnaise which tastes quite good mixed around in even amounts with rice and beef cubes. Again not so healthy but good.
Shrimp crackers - Really yummy stuff. Wonderfully topped with a sort of taco mix of onion, seasoned chicken, diced peanuts, parsley, and of course you must douse it with the house sauce. I love the texture, crunch of the cracker with the soft topping and soggy addition of the sauce.
