Xi Zhan first opened their doors to the hungry diners of Hong Kong in 2010, and their reputation has done nothing but grow since then. Their outlet on Johnston Road in Wan Chai – inside the Tung Fong Building – is an example of the best of Chinese and Cantonese cuisine, with a menu that is packed with favourites and a chef that has 35 years experience in cooking them up. Book a table ahead of time to ensure a seat.
There are few things more pleasurable to do in Hong Kong that to eat out, and there are few place in the world that can offer as many options to the diner as in the city-state. Chinese and Cantonese food are always popular options, and if you are in Wan Chai, then it is difficult to see past Xi Zhan on Johnston Road. Their chef has been in the business for over 35 years, and he brings all of that experience to bear on the ingredients in front of him.
Their location is perfect – close to Wan Chai station on Johnston Road – and the menu down at Xi Zhan is the main draw. The shrimp roe wonton noodles are a house speciality, and the pork, roasted for over an hour and turned by hand until the skin is crispy and aromatic, is worth the visit on its own. Make sure you book a table if you head down to this part of Wan Chai, as they can get very busy.
