Forget about Li Yue Mun, Aberdeen...forget about 5-star restaurants...those are places you pay a lot of money. In fact there are many mid to small size restaurants within the city of Hong Kong where you pay much less money for fresh seafood.
The Economic Seafood Set that I have today is only HK$388 for two. The restaurant only charge HK$6 per person for tea, and they even don't charge any service fee. Here's what we have.
Shark Fin Soup with Crab Meat 紅燒蟹肉生翅
Each one of us had a bowl of shark fin with crab meat, along with some other seafood such as fish mau.
Stir Fried Razor Clam with Black Bean and Pepper
The razor clam shells were at the bottom, making the dish look big. But I would say even without them, the dish is big enough. I think it should be good for four people.
Pan Fried Giant Prawns 煎大花蝦
Wow, I love these giant prawns. They were so fresh and al dente. The way they were cooked matched the taste of prawns very well. The waiters told us to eat with fingers to make it even more tasty and fun. Of course they had to offer us moist tissue.
Vegetable with Dry Scallop and Mushroom in Stock
It's good to have some vegetable as a balance of diet. But the dish size was so big and made the two of us overloaded. In fact, this meal size is good for four people, although they served only two bowls of shark fin soup.
Green Bean Dessert 綠豆沙
This green bean dessert was also very well done. They had some seaweeds and herbs to add to the fragrance. Just right to wrap up a meal.
Seafood Set for Two: HK$388
Tea for Two: HK$12
Total: HK$400 (US$51.3)
As the restaurant didn't charge 10% service fee, we paid a voluntary tip of HK$10.

Message to Shark Fans
Please DO NOT post comments about your shark protection / protest message. I will NOT publish them. If you want to protect sharks, here are my suggested methods:
- Advertise in mass media
- Everyday protests, demonstrations…in front of all shops selling shark fins
- Everyday protests, demonstrations in public areas such as streets, parks to educate the public not to eat shark fin
- Letter, fax, email, telephone or personal visits to restaurant owners to insist them to remove shark fin from their menu
- Write to the government to request shark fin eating to be illegal
- Hire fleet of ships to go out to the sea to stop any shark catching activities.
LEAVING COMMENTS IN MY BLOG IS A MATTER OF WASTING MY TIME TO READ AND DELETE. IT IS IN NO SENSE CONTRIBUTIVE IN SAVING SHARKS.
