Kam Sha Kok Hong Kong Outdoor kitchens 金沙角大牌檔 aka 大牌檔 are as iconic to Hong Kong’s history is Hong Kong’s famed and famous futuristic skyline and the Peak. Outdoor Kitchens are nostalgic and has a casual, careless environment for gatherings over a few beers and late night grub. Warning! Not for those with a glass stomach. Start your meal off with some local craft beers – Blue Girl Pilsener Lager is light, crisp and refreshing!
There are still a few places for outdoor kitchens in HK, but our friends took us to Kam Sha Kok Hong Kong 金沙角大牌檔 in Sha Tin. Sha Tin is famous for pigeon squab. The color of the skin is bright, crispy yet slightly oily. The meat is tender and moist.
Lamb brisket hot pot: clay pot comes on a propane burner with a hose attached to a mini propane tank – something that would not pass health and safety inspection here. Tender lamb pieces are cooked with plenty of bean curd and vegetables. It is rich, filling, flavorful but not gamey.
Salt and Pepper Calamari: How can you be eating outdoors and not get your fix of peppery calamari on? These lightly battered and succulent tender squid goes well with a beer!
Jelly fish and shredded chicken: cold appetizer marinated in sesame oil and pickled carrots and radishes are refreshing on a hot summer’s night. The chili flakes adds a good kick.
Gold and Silver Egg and Seasonal Greens: Salty egg and preserved century egg with egg white are gently cooked and serves as a sauce over some seasonal snow pea tips.
Roasted Chicken: Like the squab the skin is crispy and not too oily while the meat still retains its juicy moisture. Served with prawn crackers.
