Tai Ping Koon Restaurant (太平館餐廳), Hong Kong

On a Saturday afternoon. My cousin Elaine brought me to Tai Ping Koon Restaurant (太平館餐廳) in one of their Tsim Sha Tsui branch to have tea. This is a place to eat Western food, Hong Kong style. This place is different from Garden Restaurant because Tai Ping Koon was founded in 1860 during the Qing Dynasty.

There's a few signature dish that one must try in Tai Ping Koon and one of them is the Swiss Sauce Chicken Wings. The chicken wings are very well marinated. It tasted like a mix of soya sauce and ketchup, HP sauce maybe? There's boiled brocolli and radish as the side.

Rating: 4.5/5

Their hi-tea set is quite affordable and many choices. The other signature dishes that you might want to try here is the TPK Roasted Young Pigeon, Baked Crab Meat in Shell, Baked Portuguese Style Chicken, and TPK Bake Souffle.

If you want to experience the western cuisine that the people in Hong Kong had in the 70s and eat in a restaurant that will take you back in time to that era, Tai Ping Koon Restaurant is really one of it's kind. I don't think there's many old western restaurant left in Hong Kong nowadays.

Very old school design.

I only had the TPK Swiss Sauce Chicken Wings because I wanted to save some space for dinner. We were going to eat at Tai Wing Wah (大榮華). One of the famous dish there is the pord lard rice. Yum yum. Will post up the great food there soon.
