Double-boiled Pork Thigh Soup with Hair Mountain Fig


Old Hong Essence Double boiled soup

You could taste the natural sweetness and goodness of the soup doubled boiled with chicken, pork thigh and mountain fig. Savour every spoonful to aid overall respiratory system. I like the lean pork thigh for added protein.

Chinese Herbal Chicken with 10 types of herbs to boost immune system and reduce fatigue

Old Hong Kong Restuarant Herbal Chicken Soup Essence

Pure goodness slowly simmered to perfection in low heat, six hours to be exact.  The herbal smell is rather strong but you will only taste the sweetness of the chicken, angelica, rhizome, milk yetch root,  cinnamon and other herbs .

Warm comfort food at its best !
Old Hong Kong Essence Chinese Herbal Chicken

My favourite dish as it is super nourishing with healthy nutrients with rich flavoursome soup and you can actually eat the whole chicken as it has absorbed the flavours of the herbal ingredients. The meat is actually quite succulent and not tough.

A dish that i would highly recommend for the healthy benefits and values and the efforts taken to cook this dish is definitely time consuming, probable best to just visit Old Hong Kong Essence for the soup as its simply home cooked goodness with no MSG than to spend endless hours at home making the soup.

Fish Noodles in Shark Bone Soup – A high protein and collagen dish to nourish your skin.

Made from fresh water fish meat, the white fish protein noodles are a healthy alternative to yellow noodles high in carbohydrates.

Paired with collagen rich Shark Bone soup, the tasty combination is said to help nourish your skin and  i would say soul too for the chilly weather.

Poached Green Sprout with Conpoy in Soyabean Milk.


Old Hong Kong Essence Poached Green Sprout with Conpoy in Soyabean Milk.

Using the season’s freshest green spout paired with soyabean milk as a broth and a sprinkling of dried scallops and wolf berries,  the  unique dish is high in protein and gentle on the stomach.

Another benefit is that is helps to sooths your lungs and nourish your  respiratory system. Soul sister to Fish Noodles in Shark Bone Soup.

Pan-fried Salty Garoupa Fillet


A generous cut of Garoupa fillet paired with Old Hong Kong Essence secret fish soy sauce. Crispy on the side but a little over-done  inside, a light drizzle of sauce mask the dryness. I paired this with Fish Noodles in Shark Bone Soup. Divine !

Fragrant Mixed Grain Rice – High fibre and low fat , helps to lower fats and cholesterol 

Five types of low fat and high fibre rich brown rice, white pearl rice, black glutinous rice, wheat rice, barley cooked with more than ten types of seasoning . The result ? Fragrant healthy rice . I am not a rice lover but this combination is really tasty.
