Duck Tongue Island for Seafood? Jul 23, 2010
My 17 family members, all ardent seafood lovers throng our way to Ap Lei Chau (direct translation would be Duck Tongue Island a.k.a Aberdeen Island) for a feast of fresh seafood! Apparently the name Ap Lei Chau derived from the shape of the Island which looks like the tongue of a duck. First we walked around the wholesale market, selecting our seafood from the many vendors at the market and after purchasing them we proceed to the second floor to get the restaurant to cook them for us. The wholesale market had a wide variety and we were spoilt for choices but we settled for about 9 types of seafood which we bought live. We spent HKD 2000 for the seafood and another HKD 2000 for the cooking of the seafood, meat, vegetable and drinks. The prices are relatively cheap for Hong Kong standard.
We had a total of 13 dishes:
1. Sweet & Sour Pork
2. Stir fried Water Morning Glory with Fu Yu (Fermented Beancurd)
3. Stir fried Butter Prawns
4. Steam Big Clams with Chinese Rice Wine with Garlic and Glass Vermicelli
5. Stir fried Baby Bok Choy with Garlic
6. Steam Garoupa with Scallions in Soya Sauce
7. Steam Baby Abalone with Orange Sauce
9. Steam Baby Lobsters with Garlic and Ginger and Chinese Rice Wine
10. Stir Fried Crabs with Ginger and Scallions
11. Fish and Vegetable Consommé
12. Stir fried Clams with Chillies
13. Fried Rice with Chinese Sausage
Plates cleaned tummies full, beer glasses emptied! Utterly JOYgasmic meal!
