Worthy of the Throne.No signage. It’s like hunting for Wi-Fi in the Sahara Desert. Tucked away on the second floor of Kwabagi store lies a hidden gem that defies expectations. With separate restrooms for men and women and a perpetually bustling kitchen, the vibe is strangely organized yet inviting.

Step inside and immerse yourself in the world of kaoliang wine. From Tsingtao to Harbin and Macau, the selection exudes a local Hong Kong feel that grows on you with each visit. Don’t leave without sampling their signature Dongporou, Maratang, and Lazji dishes—each a testament to the owner’s culinary expertise and hospitality.

Prepare to be wowed by their new twist on Dongporou—a limited edition delight with only six plates crafted daily. While the meat may be a tad robust, the impeccably seasoned skin will leave you craving more. And let’s not forget about carbs—because why not indulge in all things delicious?

The Maratang arrives generously portioned, boasting a refreshing, palate-pleasing flavor that pairs perfectly with each mouthful. Its broth, a symphony of flavors, beckons for a side of rice—a soup that’s as comforting as it is captivating.

And finally, the Lazji—crispy fried chicken wings that hit all the right notes. Not overly spicy, but with a delightful sweetness that creeps up on you, these wings are a culinary journey worth embarking on. Trust us, it’s a dish you won’t want to miss.
