Steamed grey mullet fish at 新釗記粥麵家

One of the hardest places to eat healthy in Hong Kong is in a tea restaurant, where typical dishes are rice or noodles topped with heavily MSG’ed and cornstarched (cheap) meat concoctions.

For a change, ask for the steamed fish (they usually have it as part of the dinner menu), which comes with a bowl of house soup and steamed rice. I got this steamed grey mullet fish for dinner one night steamed with salty lime — delicious!

You can also pair it with a side of (non fried) veggies to bulk up the meal!

  1. Hi Sarah, thanks for reading! I’m always tempted by all the greasy options at the ‘cha chaan tengs’… this is at least one alternative so far! 🙂

  2. This looks good! I’ve been to 新釗記, but never tried the fish! I usually order 鱼蛋粉。 I should definitely try this with rice and 油菜(走油), someday.
