Though I have travelled to a lot of places, I haven't been to Hong Kong. Yes, I'm a bit ashamed about it but I do intend to fly there and eat my way around Hong Kong soon.
While I have yet to plan my trip to Hong Kong, I was able to have a taste of what authentic HK cuisine last Monday at Xiu Fine Cantonese Dining in Greenhills San Juan.
Xiu (which means "elegance") is a collaboration of HTCG (the group who brought us Lugang Cafe, Tuan Tuan and The Dessert Kitchen) with Lawrence Koo and Executive Chef David Cheung, both boast with their vast knowledge in Cantonese cuisine.
Located at the spot where Lugang Cafe used to be, Xiu has two floors with five private rooms for a more luxurious experience.
For starters, we had the Honey-glazed Prime Cut Char Siu (Php 680/portion) and Cantonese Style Crispy Pork Belly (Php 680/portion).

Made from the best cuts, the Honey-glazed Prime Cut Char Siu is difficult to dislike. The subtle sweetness of the glaze blends perfectly with the tender meat that you won't be able to stop yourself from getting more. The Cantonese Style Crispy Pork Belly is also heavenly with its crunchy skin and tender meat.
