Chuen Kee Seafood Restaurant
Serving a similar menu to the other seafood restaurants along the waterfront, Chuen Kee does it a bit better than the rest – winning an entry into the Michelin guide a few years ago. The long-established restaurant is slightly more comfortable with space and atmosphere. Diners can pick their own seafood from the overspilling tanks and hand it over to the waitress and let them know how you want it cooked. The salt and pepper mantis shrimp is a winner. Want to go simple? Order the steamed fish – either garoupa or snapper – bathed in a deliciously sweet soy sauce, topped with julienned ginger and spring onion.
Best for views
If the ground floor is too crowded, rise above and book a table on the balcony at Chuen Kee. It’s a great spot to overlook the seafood town and all of its business.
