The Duck Crawl

Wednesday, 6 November, 2013

Well, tonight is the Duck Crawl. There are no organised activities during the day so JV and I head out mid-morning to get something to eat. We settle on another place where we are the only white faces in it.

JV orders a Wonton Noodle Soup and a Duck leg, what else? I order a serve of Wontons and a Goose leg.

All in all I thought JV’s choice of the soup was better but at least we got to have more Fowl, why else the trip?

That afternoon JV prances around HK. I go again down to the swimming pool for some leisurely reading.

To start the Duck Crawl, we meet in the Lobby Bar at the Renaissance, an isolated area at the end. The idea is a few drinks which turn out to be Whispering Angel Rose – arguably the most expensive Rose in the world. No photos sadly. This Duck Crawl has only two restaurants instead of the usual three, never mind we do OK.

We go out for a short walk, 10 minutes or so to Suzuike:

We are joined by the owner of Suzuike, two local Chinese – who arrive late as usual and another Aussie there for the Wine Expo.

It looked like a private room but other casual diners moved in eventually. However, the owner of the restaurant joined us along with Ed Davis, two local Chinese and an Aussie.

Of course, I had to pass this one along. I doubted that I would end up starving at the end of the night.

So that was the end of Suzuike. We head back to the Renaissance and the Dynasty Restaurant where we had lunch on Sunday. They had set-up two large tables for us but we decided we could all fit on one.

This Peking Duck is served in the traditional way with only skin. JV prefers to have skin and meat. Love the plate.

There were drinks afterwards at the Lounge but I am not sure that I made it. Still, a very good time for the last official function of the tour.
