How to you spend your date night in Hong Kong?

A range of durian desserts made of Malaysian D24 and “Mao Shan Wang” durian is another highlight of the dinner buffet that are must-try for every durian lover!

Sushi – loved that round sushi with raw salmon and mayo, but they’re quite filling as 1 round sushi roughly equals to 2 regular sushi!

Satay - In Malaysian language it means “skewers of meat”. Here we got Lamb, Beef and Chicken (from front to back). The chunky peanut sauce is the spirit of Satay and remember to eat with the Ketupat (pieces of rice cube) and raw onion & cucumber pieces!

Klang Bak Kut Teh – rich but not too intense on the herbal taste, which should be widely adapted by everyone even for those who enjoy the taste of Chinese herbs. Don’t forget to add some Chinese Youtiao pieces on top.
