Chinese Seafood in Sok Kwu Wan

Eating Chinese can be really challenging if you have any of the most common food intolerances. There’s soy sauce (and therefore gluten) in almost everything, some noodle dishes contain raw egg, peanuts are put on the table before the meal, and don’t even get me started on the MSG.

With my parents in town, I wanted to find a way we could all enjoy a Chinese restaurant together. We had a hike planned for today, and it happened to end in Sok Kwu Wan, a small village known for its fresh seafood restaurants. This, it turned out, was the perfect solution!

We ended up at a place called Rainbow Seafood Restaurant. A quick survey of the menu revealed a few dishes that didn’t appear to contain soy sauce.

The sauce on these garlic prawns was to die for. They were so garlicky that I can still taste a little bit of it on my breath eight hours later. Just the way I like it!

These tiger prawns were stir-fried in honey and black pepper. Sweet and just a little spicy – yum! They may have contained a little bit of soy sauce, but I was able to eat them with no problems.

At the end of the meal they brought out a big bowl of tea with lemons floating in it. We were a little confused, but they instructed us to dip in our hands. The garlic smell was completely erased from our fingers! Genius!

My parents head back to the States tomorrow – I’m sad to see them go! It was a great trip and I can’t wait to see them again the next time I go home.
