Legendary Hong Kong is the first and only restaurant in Singapore to showcase the award-winning “Irish duck” from Silver Hill Farm on a menu that spans across four themes – Roasted Meats, Noodles and Congee, Dim Sum and Bakery.

Located along the vibrant “Mongkok” (旺角) district — Singapore’s first and only Hong Kong themed shopping and dining street — at Jurong Point, Legendary Hong Kong gives diners the most authentic Hong Kong cuisine experience one can find on the island. With a menu that showcases over 300 dishes, the kitchen is helmed by five accomplished Master Chefs, each with their own specialty in Hong Kong cuisine.

Roasted Meats
Hong Kong styled roast meats are considered to be one of the best in Chinese cuisine. The glaze of the skin and the texture of the meats vary from the style of roasting to the cut and type of meats. Hong Kong Master Chef Siu Chin Ho, with over 23 years of experience in roast meats, prepares each roast with extreme care to deliver just the right amount of tenderness and succulence.

The Legendary Hong Kong house specialty of “Roasted London Duck” is undisputedly the best-seller on the menu. Named after the city London where people from around the globe flock to in search of the “best duck in the world”, Legendary Hong Kong uses “Grade A” Irish ducks from Silver Hill Farm in Ireland. The duck has consistent tenderness in its flesh and an unforgettable aroma when cooked.

Noodles and Congee
Rice and noodles are staples in Asia. At Legendary Hong Kong, carefully prepared ingredients are put into continuously boiling rice porridge until they become soft and their flavours are infused in the entire mixture. For those who are familiar with MAK’s Noodle, one of the World’s cheapest Michelin Starred restaurant, their noodles are undoubtedly considered to be one of the best in Hong Kong. Today, the same chef who made the noodles at MAK’s Noodle, Master Chef Ho Yum, works in the kitchen of Legendary Hong Kong. In keeping with the authentic taste, besides the extremely springy and smooth noodles, the chef is insistent on using only the traditional Wonton – those which are filled with shrimp, rather than those filled with pork that are commonly found in Singapore.

Dim Sum
At Legendary Hong Kong, Master Chef Ko Che Fai, formerly from famed establishments such as W Hong Kong and Crystal Jade, is only interested in using the finest and freshest ingredients he can get his hands on. Some of the uncommon items on the menu include the “Rice Flour Roll with Deep-fried Shrimp Spring Rolls” and “Mini Durian Tarts”.

Bakery
Besides the traditional “Custard Crust Bun with Butter” and a variety of toasts that are prepared fresh at the Bakery daily, the “HK Style Tea and Coffee Mix” at Legendary Hong Kong is also more than meets the eye. Master Chef Lo Chi Man, with over 20 years of tea-brewing experience was adamant none of the tea blended in Singapore gave that same bitter-sweet after taste as those in Hong Kong. As a result, his recipe for the “HK Style Tea and Coffee Mix” is prepared from a special blend of five different varieties of teas that are imported from Hong Kong.
