Kiangsu Chekiang and Shanghai Residents (HK) Association Restaurant

5/5 PickyRatings

The locals call this place “So-Jit.”  We’ll just call it the KCSRA restaurant.

It is located in Hong Kong Island, near the Central area, inside the Manning House.

The name is overwhelmingly long, and I may not have tried their best dishes.  We went there for an authentic Shanghainese dinner.

The sauteed shrimp there is excellent.  It is not too salty, and it is good with black vinegar.  The shrimp are pretty small, and might be a choking hazard for little children.  On the other hand, the green shrimpballs that come with it are not good.  (The green is spinach sauce, and not artificial coloring).  They do not taste like shrimp at all.  Spooky!

Sauteed shrimp dish.  Notice how small shrimp is, and notice rare green shrimpballs.  Don't eat them.

The stuff braised duck is one of my favorites…at the US.  This Hong Kong version is not very pleasing.  The duck meat did not have much taste to it, although, the sauce is good.  So drink the sauce! 🙂

If you’re looking for a vegetable choice, I recommend the Yin Choi, cooked in garlic.  It is a little salty, but that’s what makes it good.

The “Si” Fish has a lot of bones inside!  However, the meat is delicious.  It is a very famous Shanghainese dish.

This is what I mean by the Si Fish.

So there you go.  My first picture post.  (And also my first one with cynicism.)

If you like this restaurant, it’s for members only (as stated in the title).

I’m sorry if I offended some duck lovers, or some green shrimpball lovers.
