No cake cutting free, corkage is $80 and with 9 bottles that came to $720 on top of our food bill, roughly $350 pp

super fresh seafood @ Lau Fau San

There are many seafood restaurants there but we went to one called Waterside Seafood Restaurant (海灣). We picked shrimps, razor clams, scallops, mantis prawns, and a garoupa from the fish tank across the restaurant for our mains.

Scallops were a touch overdone for my taste but everything else was excellent especially the prawns fried with soy sauce (not pictured) and mantis prawns. The crab tomalley and shrimp fried rice and sweet and sour spareribs was also decent.

We spent about HK$350 pp.

Solid Cantonese food - make sure you preorder the suckling pig, taro duck, chicken with preserved vegetable baked in lotus leaf.

Other favorites: braised pomelo skin with shrimp roes, goose meat roll, stir fried garoupa, rice rolls with satay beef, crab fried rice

Goose web is also a delicacy here but I’m not a fan.

Dinner came to about HK$300 pp before corkage.
