Central, Hong Kong
American Restaurant does not serve American food.
They specialise in Beijing style Chinese food aka Peking food and have been an institution in Hong Kong for god knows how long.
I went with a group from work and we ordered so many things.
The sweet sour pork, chilli fried prawn, tofu and mushrooms in oyster sauce, egg white fried with crab meat to start.
About half way through the first round of dishes the rest came out, Peking duck, a whole sweet and sour fish, a huge pot of chicken wonton soup and finally the beggers chicken.
Unfortunately I was too busy eating to write anything about everything. I can tell you though every dish bar the scrambled egg whites was great; the Peking duck was a standout, as was the sweet and sour fish.
