My girlfriend likes to take me to Tuen Mun where you pick up all the ingredients in the market, and they cook it for you. And I have to say, they’re quite good. We tried a lot of things, we had 20 dishes. We had the razor clams, abalone, crayfish, scallops... I was quite shocked with the cheesy crayfish/rock lobster. I have to say, it’s not bad. I was surprisingly delighted. I like it. It’s kind of weird turning crayfish, very expensive rock lobster, into junk food. But the cooking is good. It’s well-cooked. It’s nice once you eat it. They really respect the crayfish. The way they cook the fish is very nice.
Family-owned Rainbow Seafood Restaurant has been serving a fun dining escape to locals and tourists alike since 1984, giving away free boat rides to hungry guests from nearby piers. Their specialties are best enjoyed with company, their portions massive enough for sharing between big groups. Make sure to order signature dishes such as Rainbow Fish Garoupa, Baked Lobster with Butter Sauce, and Spicy Prawns.
If there’s a dish that emerged from Hong Kong’s bygone typhoon shelter culture, it’s the classic spicy crab. Under Bridge is a well-known spot that serves the iconic dish with their own flavorful twist of toasted garlic, shallots, and spring onions. The restaurant also offers other hearty specialties including Sautéed Scallops, Stir-Fried Squid, and Boiled Spicy Whelks with Chinese Wine—all approved by no less than the late but great Anthony Bourdain!
