Tai Tung

Topic type:

As an indigent university student, I would occasionally treat myself to dinner at the dirt-cheap Kam Sang in the then borderline-squalid part of Queen St opposite the Town Hall. But the Tai Tung in snazzy Swanson St was of a different order altogether.

Lured there one night by better-heeled law students, I broke into a cold sweat at the sight of the menu: the combination fried rice was, if I remember rightly, 40c instead of the 25c I was accustomed to.

Morita is dearer than both the Kam Sang and the Tai Tung - to tell the truth, it's pretty pricey, but you get what you pay for.
