Most salted eggs are covered in a black, damp, salted charcoal which in turn makes it salty. There are many versatile ways to cook a salted egg, and there is nothing more delicious than their recent comeback with Salted Egg Fish Skin. On the more traditional side we always have some Steamed Mince Pork with Salted Egg or even Mooncakes.

Here are some of our picks for where to try these eggstraordinary dishes:

  1. Steamed Minced Pork with Salted Egg
    Man Sing Restaurant in Tai Hang is a bit tucked away but actually very accessible. Simple exit from the Tin Hau MTR exit and take a brisk 5 minute walk into the Tai Hang area. Their Steamed Minced Pork with Salted Egg is a mountain of goodness topped with a Salted Egg. To consume, you must first mash the yolk and mix it with the minced pork to go with some white rice.

  2. Salted Egg Fish Skin
    Head to Irvin’s for some irresistible salted egg goodness. Warning: it is absolutely addictive. Don’t say we didn’t warn you! The crispy fried fish skin is coated with a salted egg sauce that is Irvin’s signature, perfect for snacking, hot pots or just a guilty-pleasure binge. Irvin currently has shops in both Central and Tsim Sha Tsui.
