Empire City Roasted Duck 大都烤鴨
This Pekinese restaurant is a product of the Super Star Group. Their signature is the Peking duck which is roasted in a lychee wood oven and served alongside some less traditional condiments such as purple turnips and honey melon. What makes a special ending here is the custard pastry assembled to look like a mini duckling. It’s extremely crumbly, despite the filling being a tad dry.

Social Place 唐宮小聚
The Social Place offers continental Cantonese dim sum in a healthy and modern way, claiming to use rice bran oil without any MSG. The Social Place can be reached at the 2/F of The L. Place, with a spacious Tiffany-blue themed environment and two open kitchens containing bamboo steamers. A terrific sampler is the thousand year eggs, flavoured with black vinegar, spicy Sichuan sauce and leaves of cilantro. Call it the “evil goldfish”!
