In fast paced cities like Hong Kong, finding a good fine-dining place is like an oasis in a concrete jungle. And my good friend Cathy, always has the eye for it. Together with our friends and guests who had visited from across the globe from their CIRQUE du SOLEIL "Alegria" tour, we had come to RED PENNY for Evi's (Cathy's husband) 26th birthday dinner. For my blog entry for Wine and Dine Wednesday, RED PENNY is the place to be.

Situated in 147 Kan Sheung Road, Yuen Long, this Thai Viet Chisine Bar offers a good ambiance for wedding receptions, romantic dinners and intimate gatherings amongst friends and family.

Cleanliness wise, it gained 3.47 out of 5 ratings ( and to compliment that, the food is just but as promising as how this lovely place was put up. Must tries for me would be the following:

1. Garlic Nan Bread - I saw how an Indian lady made ours fresh. This was quite nice to pair up always with curry.

2. anything and everything curry - they have every variety: yellow, green, red and it tastes truly authentic. We had ordered this to warm up our night because the breeze was cold when we went there last Friday.

3. stir fry veggies - The water spinach stir-fried with garlic and a little bit of chilli spice was ooh-so yummy. It balances out the rest of the meat you would be having. And they know how to maintain the texture the crunchy stalks contributes to a zesty meal.

4. chicken with coconut soup is also a must try along with the green papaya salad - Delicacies that Jane suggested for me to try. I tried them for the first time that night and I'd definitely go for it again.

5. Different kinds of seafood may also be ordered as they present them fresh for you to market followed up by the cooking service (grilled, garlic and butter, fried or with soup). We had Grilled Squid, Steamed Lobster sprinkled with Garlic, and Fried Sea Bass. it was perfectly cooked and we indulged on it alright.
6. Also, we tried the pineapple fried rice but this one was similar to how other Chinese restaurants cook it. I suggest that you just do the Nan bread than the rice.
