A taste of Hongkong In Tai Koo

Missing Hongkong roasts?

No need to fly  to that  shopping and foodie paradise close to Pinoy hearts to satisfy that craving.

Tai Koo at the Podium Mall  serves succulent pork , beef and chicken  slices that are scrumptious yet very affordable. Pair it with either rice or noodles and you are all set.

Last Saturday was my first visit ever to Tai Koo.  It had been a week of rain  and humongous traffic jams but August 10 was surprisingly "dry" relative to the previous days.

Learned from foodie friend and a one-time HK student for 8 months @friedandprejudice, that Tai Koo is a place and a metro stop in Hongkong.

It is not an international franchise though per Ms. Guia (marketing Tai Koo)

So there I was with other select foodies  looking forward to tasting Tai Koo's food for the first time..

What PiggingOutOnSundays loved...

Charsiu Pork and Wonton P228
Noodles were al dente and flavorful,  Bokchoy or was it pechay was crisp and green. Charsiu were delectable and sweet.

Broccoli Flower P118

Presentation was simple yet riveting. Broccoli flower looked   amazingly preserved  considering that it was either blanched or sauteed in oyster and garlic. Awesome cooking technique
Hongkong Roast Duck and Roast Pork Belly P268

Melt in your mouth Roast Pork Belly. Roast Duck was a bit tough coming after that tender belly

Gai Lan P88

Gai lan or Kai-lan is the Cantonese name and jie lan is the Mandarin name for a vegetable that is also nown as Chinese   broccoli or Chinese Kale - Wikipedia

The greens are crisp but tougher relative to the familiar pechay.


I think I found a new favorite  Hongkong Roasts restaurant in Tai Koo. Price is a primary consideration followed by generous portions and delicious tasting meat.

Roast pork belly was a favorite and so were the charsiu with the fatty parts. I understand from Ms. Guia that some clients like their meat lean. But personally I love mine with melty fat.

Loved the greens which did a lot to appease my inner health food police.

Having said that, I am definitely returning here with the piggery and the handsome hubby in tow.

Do check them out at the 5th level of  Podium and let me know how it turns out for you.
