Michelin guides are often clueless and wrong when it comes to Asian food, but they’ve got it right in this case. One of our favs in town. Add liver lapchong and salted fish for extra umami and hypertension.

Unless you like duck for dessert, avoid this limited-time special offer: it is so sweet (without even a hint of sour flavour to balance) that it might knock out the diabetics among us. Adobo is better!

We used to go to Hua Ting every month, but haven’t been back for many years; today’s visit shows why. The Cantonese food remains as good as ever, with some brilliant innovations (baby abalone in sake, squid tentacles). Only a few dishes were not best in class, like the pork rib or the crabmeat fried rice with black garlic. However, we were seated in the lobby (because it was a day-before booking), and that looked kind of cheap. Worse is the service. The staff are very competent and gracious. However, the place is so understaffed (and it was not full!) that service is not worthy of a restaurant of this calibre: we had to ask for things (chilli, hot water refill for the tea pot, bowls for fried rice, knife and fork for ribs) SEVERAL times before being served. At $130 per pax for lunch (no alcohol), it was not good value.

This has been mentioned elsewhere, but the dude taking reservations sounds curt and unfriendly.

The duck may not be the best, but at Kai you can have a kaiseki of various duck dishes, from standard to innovative ones. If you’re tired of duck, there are other unusual dishes too, and Kai is not limited to kailan; for instance, the clams in spicy sauce is yum. Proactive service from a nice team dressed in ridiculous-looking uniforms.

Farting is healthy (the wet type, less so)
