Maxim's Jade Garden @ Hong Kong Airport

Although we (already) had breakfast at Mui Kee Congee at the Flower Market and some snacks / desserts before arriving at the airport, being true-blue "hungry" Singaporeans we had a little meal before checking in (our luggage). 

There was another cute little cafe that I wished we tried, but the consensus was since we were in Hong Kong, the last meal should be some dim sum and roast goose, so Jade Garden it was. Jade Garden is a Cantonese restaurant belonging to the Maxim Group’s chain of restaurants all over Hong Kong.

It was bustling was activity when we arrived, and honestly it was a little off-putting: waitresses were running all over the place to occupied tables, giving it a chaotic vibe.  We were ushered to a table near the entrance.

Some tea and peanuts with preserve vegetables to keep us occupied while waiting for the food to arrive
Do that the peanuts are additional cost (as with all Chinese restaurants). So if you do not want to pay for something extra, you can tell them you don't want it.

Looks pretty nice to me

Once we have made our choice(s), we ordered and waited for the food to be served. It's the airport so food is naturally not the cheapest. It helps when you are traveling with a group, that way the cost can be shared more effectively. πŸ˜‚

So here's what we ordered:

The menu was no-frills printed piece of paper with illustrations of the food items and the prices

Roast goose: It was not too bad, can't remember the price though.

Steam Char Siew baos (HK$41): It was nice and fluffy on the outside and the char siew was not overly sweet.

Chicken feet (HK$68): for those who can appreciate it.

Steam beef short ribs with black pepper sauce (HK47): the meat was tender and quite nice.

Overall, the food was pretty normal and you probably could get the same type of food at any dim sum selling Chinese restaurant. So unless you are craving for some dim sum when you are the airport, I think you should try out Pokka Cafe instead! πŸ˜…
