NileGuide Expert Says:
Fried rice with dried conpoy, dried fish and duck meat looks like an ordinary fried rice, but the mixture of conpoy, minced duck, fish flakes and egg makes an instant impact on your taste buds. The combination of meats works very nicely with the rice, which stays dry and is topped appropriately with more aromatic dried fish flakes.

To end off the meal. Tsui Hang Village is offering the region's trademark sweetened milk pudding, a creamy, custardy concoction which uses ginger to coagulate liquid milk. And to add a touch of indulgence, the kitchen team tops the milk pudding off with a generous dollop of bird's nest.
