Wing Lai Yuen
Sichuan fare is known to start a party (or a fire, with the proper seasoning) in your mouth, so have a glass of water at the ready before digging in at this Hung Hom neighborhood restaurant in the Whampoa Garden development. Round tables, red walls, and red-and-white chairs set a bright atmosphere at this ground floor location. Xiao long bao steamed buns get the appetite revved up in anticpation of traditional dishes like pot stickers, sliced pork in a tangy and sweet sauce, or braised eggplant with oyster sauce.
