Tin Lung Heen 天龍軒 in Ritz Carlton Hotel Kowloon

It was a cloudy day, so you couldn't see very far.
The surrounding sea wasn't the most picturesque part of Victoria harbor either.

There are restaurants where you enjoy you see from the windows more than you enjoy the food. Riding up the high-speed elevator going up to the 103th floor lobby of Ritz Carlton hotel, mum was expecting Tin Lung Heen to be one of those restaurants. The elevator ride up was surprisingly speedy and quiet. Once you're on the 103th floor lobby. you need to ride the escalator down one floor to the Chinese restaurant. The ceiling was high and spacing between tables was generous. Service was courteous to a fault.

So how about the food?

The dishes they ordered were all good!! Definitely more memorable than the food they had in Lung King Heen in Four Seasons Hotel.

So mum's expectations were turned upside down!! In a good way!!

至尊甘荀鮮蝦餃 Shrimp Dumpling
西杏雪影叉燒餐包 Almond Crusted BBQ Pork Bun
This is much better then Tim Ho Wan and Lung Keen Heen in Four Seasons, but comparable to World Trade Centre Club Chinese Restaurant (not been mentioned in our blog).
西班牙黑豚肉叉燒腸粉 Iberico BBQ Pork Rice Roll
Big Chunks of BBQ Pork, I would order this again and again.  I am not a fan of BBQ Pork Rice Roll but this has given new meaning to the dish.

蟲草花湯牛肉丸 Beef Balls in Soup
The highlight of the meal.  Seasoned perfectly with the right mix of texture and flavour.  Never seen before so its a novelty to us.

蒜香鸡 Deep Fried Chicken with Garlic
The crispy skin chicken was well presented and cooked and cut to perfection.  Sauce was good but probably too sharp on its own.  Best eaten with white rice.
