Tsui Hang Village is a well-known Cantonese restaurant specializing in food from the Guangzhou region, more specifically Hakka and Shunde cuisine, as well as Cantonese roasted meats. In fact, their signature honey glazed BBQ pork is fantastic – a perfect combination of rich flavor and ultra tender meat.
“The best charsiu I’ve ever had,” proclaimed Bryan after tasting it for the first time.
Although we haven’t eaten at all the top roast meat places in Hong Kong, we’ve had several top notch charsiu, including a fancy iberico version at Man Wah, as well as many excellent versions at Fu Sing, Kam’s Roast Goose, and Joy Hing.
Tsui Hang Village has been around since the 1970’s, and was THE place for “movers and shakers” as well as top celebrities to dine and do business meetings while dining on high end Cantonese fare (shark fin, abalone, bird’s nest and the like). Many new places have popped up since then for that purpose, but it’s still well-known locally.
The restaurant, named after Dr. Sun Yat-sen’s birthplace, is run by the Miramar Group and has been recommended by Michelin Guide as having a “Good Standard”.
