FOOK LAM MOON
Believed to be one of the most exclusive Cantonese restaurants in the city, Fook Lam Moon excels with its menu offerings and attentive service. Take note that some of the classic dishes— whole roast suckling pig, saltbaked chicken and eight treasure duck—require intense advanced preparation; you’ll need to call at least 24 hours ahead to reserve them. You can expect an allrounded establishment that excels across the spectrum, from delicate dim sum to masterfully crafted a la carte dishes; and from elaborate banquet-style courses to simple homely delicacies.
The restaurant’s famous crispy chicken lives up to its name, and so does the stewed chicken with aged huadiao wine. Braised prime beef ribs with Hawaiian papaya may be an unseemly dish, but the fruit helps soften the meat and brings sweetness to the dish. Save some room for desserts, as Fook Lam Moon’s iconic steamed thousand layer laye cake, which alternates s steamed bread dough and custard filling, is deceptively deceptiv simple but superlative. Expect E the knowledgeable staffs to share the storie stories behind the dishes, and speak authoritatively on portion control and w wine pairing
