The history of New Hong Kong Restaurant began in 1954
where a few Hong Kong people then decided to migrate to Johor. What started as
a coffee shop selling noodles has expanded as the years go by
until the existing restaurant today. Back then the restaurant
was already popular as the location makes it easy for sailors to frequent and
news travel fast by word of mouth. Now, with a long history and the same
authentic delicacy, New Hong Kong Restaurant is still one of the best.
There are so many types of food offered here but are
generally divided into dim sum and a la carte. The a la carte selection is more
general that comprises anything that is not dim sum but can also be part of a
package meal. During festive season, New Hong Kong Restaurant offers
various attractive packages for the whole family to enjoy. Some of their signature dishes include the Chilli Crab,
Crispy Chicken, Coffee Pork Ribs, and Crispy Bean curd. Using a masterful
technique of roasting meat with charcoal, their roasted meat dishes have found
popularity among the customers.
Even so, the much talked about servings here is
the dim sum. Notable ones are
the Siew Mai, Crab Meat Dumpling in Clear Soup, and the Steamed Pork Ribs with
Black Bean Sauce. The classic Siew Mai is given the superior breath with its
golden yellow crab roe topping, and a filling of pork and prawn.
The sizable crab
dumpling is plump to look at and the soup is healthily flavourful, while the
ribs are boiled ‘till decadently tender, soaking up the flavour of the
black bean sauce.
Although not the cheapest around, the history
and quality makes it a worthwhile visit to sample the best of Hong Kong
