Tin Lung Heen at The Ritz-Carlton ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥




At 102nd floor, the 2-Michelin star Tin Lung Heen at The Ritz-Carlton is probably the world's tallest Chinese restaurant.

The interiors were tastefully designed, and the views spectacular.

I loved it much better than the hotel's Italian restaurant Tosca. See post here




Oozing with sexy. The crystal, not me!!! :P




High ceilings, big chandelier




Wood carvings




 Chinese wines wall art




 Cozy corner




Not really the famous Hong Kong island view, but still something you don't see very often. 
Make sure to request for window seats when booking!




Not sure what this was, but I'm certain it wasn't a sunflower. Hahaha! :D




Candied walnuts




Deep fried foie gras dumplings wrapped with shredded pastry - didn't leave much impression 
 except that there was too much going on 




Roasted Meat Combination




Char-grilled barbecued Iberian pork - extremely tender and porky with a thin layer of glistening
fat to add more richness to this already perfect baby. I daresay the best chasiu I've had
in recent years.  




Crispy pork belly - the skin!!!




Roasted goose - tender and gamey with beautifully crisp skin and a perfect layer of fat




Baked abalone puffs with minced chicken - the pastry shell was sweet and crumbled nicely
in the mouth. The abalone soft and bouncy.




Glutinous rice with abalone and Chinese mushroom wrapped in lotus leaf




The rice was fragrant and tasty and was mixed with chunks of salted egg yolk.
And you know salted egg yolk makes the world a beautiful place!




Chicken feet in soy sauce - okay, this wasn't exactly what I imagined when I ordered chicken feet.
I wanted the steamed version with the skin and tendons easily slipping off the bones when I
suck at them. These feet put up a tough fight. I had to grab them with my hands and play dirty.
I surrendered after the second foot. 




Steamed garoupa and crabmeat dumplings with egg white in XO sauce chili sauce




Look at the plump and moist seafood




Golden shrimp dumplings with bamboo shoots and asparagus - each piece encased a sizable
shrimp, the skin was the right thickness and check out the immaculate pleating!




 Traditional sponge cake with taro curd




 The sponge cake was so very soft and pillowy and the taro so finely mashed.
My favorite sweet dimsum layered with my favorite tuber! Such an absolute pleasure to eat! 
Will walk up 102 flights of stairs just for this! 


I was so excited to order the chilled milk pudding with black truffle for dessert, but the server said it was not possible. He mumbled an explanation and left. It was only 1pm. 



All we got was a plate of walnut cookies and osmanthus jelly. They were nice,
but they were no chilled milk pudding with black truffle. :(
