Cheuk Yan Restaurant (卓仁菜館)

Cheuk Yan Restaurant (卓仁菜館) is another local gem hidden under its modest decor and humble residential corner.  I love going there for family gatherings.  In fact, I just went there last night for a family reunion dinner (團年飯)!


The restaurant has a budget friendly menu and the dishes served are traditional and delicious.  An excellent place to visit if you want something casual, local, and cheap.


My must eat everytime are the Steamed Eel in Soy Sauce (豉汁蒸風鱔) and the Sweet and Sour Pork (生炒骨).  I heard the Ginger Chicken (沙薑雞) is fantastic here as well but I have yet to try!

Other dishes I have tried~  Overall, the quality is very consistent and I have yet to eat a dish that I did not enjoy!  The restaurant mainly serves locals (街坊) so everyone sort of knows everyone.  Another characteristic feature of this restaurant is the "writings on the wall".  The owner is a literati and he had his calligraphy collection hung on the walls.  It was an interesting sight when my mom and uncle were trying to read the words out loud and the owner chimed in and explained what was written!
