Sun Tin Dat Chinese Restaurant English Menu
I like that Hong Kong is a crossroads of many cuisine. Like Cha Chaan Teng’s and Dimsum restaurants, Hong Kong is a place for you to enjoy authentic Shanghainese cuisine.
SUN TIN DAT Chinese Restaurant 新天地蘇杭菜館 serves delicious La Mian 拉麵 and Shanghainese cuisine. (If you have been to Crowne Plaza Galleria in Manila, they also have Xin Tian Di, but this one is different. 🙂 )
Soup with Bamboo Shoot and Tofu in Casserole
Sun Tin Dat’s soup with bamboo shoots and tofu in casserole is extremely hot and milky. This dish is good for vegetarians as it has mock meat.
Steamed Shanghainese Dumplings a.k.a. Xiao Long Bao
Of course, when in a Shanghainese restaurant, don’t miss ordering Xiao Long Bao’s. However, I disliked Sun Tin Dat’s Xiao Long Bao as the skin is thick. I ended up eating the meat inside and leaving the skin behind.
Braised Pork Belly
Sun Tin Dat’s Braised Pork Belly is a winner. Pork meat has layers of fat in between making it very tender. I was halfheartedly hoping there was steamed buns served with it.
Shanghai Style Noodle
Shanghai Style Noodles have noodles that are chewy and less soggy. But these typed of tossed noodles are my favorite.
Sweet and Sour Fish
Nothing out of the ordinary. The dory is cooked right.
Kailan in Oyster Sauce
I like that in Chinese Restaurants like this, they serve good vegetables. They usually cook vegetables pretty well for vegetarians. I’d recommend you to order vegetables at any Chinese restaurant in Hong Kong.
Spareribs in Hoisin Sauce
Ah, Sun Tin Dat’s Spareribs are a little too sweet for me. And there was hardly any meat. Around 80% of it is just bone! On the other hand, the accompanying pechay was really delicious and freshly cut. I enjoyed it more than the dish itself.
Overall, I’d go back for the Braised Pork Belly and the Shanghai Style Noodles. The rest was pretty mediocre food.
A little note, their restrooms have squat pans. If you’ve been to Xiamen or some rural parts of China, you get the picture. Hence, my low score for this restaurant’s Brick and Mortar.
