At level 102 of The Ritz-Carlton Hong Kong, Tin Lung Heen is probably one of the highest, if not the highest, Chinese restaurants in the world. While there are plenty of good Cantonese restaurants in Hong Kong, Tin Lung Heen is a popular venue as it not only delivers a modern interpretation of Cantonese food, it also has a spectacular view of Hong Kong.
When I was staying at The Ritz-Carlton Hong Kong, I had the chance to dine at this 2 Michelin Star Chinese restaurant, and I am pleased to report that it was a very fine meal.
The chef customised a menu to showcase some of his signature dishes. We had Marinated Chicken in soy sauce, Deep-fried Beancurd Sheet with crab meat and onion, Char-grilled Barbecued Iberian Pork, Roasted Goose, Double-boiled Chicken Soup with fish maw in baby coconut, Pan-fried Prawn with superior soy sauce, Pan-fried Kurobuta Pork filled with foie gras, Garoupa Fillet with green onion and ginger in X.O sauce, Sauteed Choi Sum with garlic sauce, Fried Rice with diced abalone wrapped in lotus leaf, and a Chilled Milk Jelly with black truffle, chilled coconut and red dated jelly.
Everything was done to a high standard, and the best thing that we had that night, was an amazing Char-grilled Barbecued Iberian Pork. It was, without exaggerating, the best char siew I have ever had in my life.
All in all, the food at Tin Lung Heen is excellent and the Char-grilled Barbecued Iberian Pork is to-die-for. Prices are steep, but it is a restaurant with a terrific view and exceptional service. If you are celebrating a special occasion, I canot think of a better place than Tin Lung Heen at The Ritz-Carlton Hong Kong.
