Chinese Food Hong Kong Style

Barrio Chino has tons of restaurants to choose from.  Some good, some bad, some with chicken feet displayed in the window, and others with empanadas and milanesas on the menu.  Hong Kong Style offers a huge variety of the greasy Chinese food persuasion that I hold so dear to my heart. The menu includes pages and pages of endless options of rice, vegetable, noodle, meat and seafood dishes, and even a separate Dim Sum menu. It’s the best Chinese food in Barrio Chino and maybe even Buenos Aires.

Chinese food in Buenos Aires, for the most part, is not very good.  Odd tasting sauces, strange hot pink sweet and sour goo, cheap soy sauce, and mouth numbing MSG. Fortunately, Hong Kong Style is one of the best authentic tasting American-style Chinese food in Argentina, with familiar flavors and high quality produce.

Crystal Shrimp Dumplings Dim Sum- perfectly cooked shrimp inside!

Beef with Chinese Vegetables (Bok Choy) – A bit oily, not crazy about the sauce.. weird and gloopy. Not a good order.

Kung Pao Chicken- George Likes His Chicken Spicy, and so did I.

Shrimp Fried Noodles, perfectly cooked shrimp

Overall favorites of the day? Salt and pepper shrimp, sopa agripicante, Kung Pao chicken and shrimp fried noodles. The shrimpsss in the fried noodles were surprisingly good as well, al dente bite and not mushy nor veiny with a poop shoot like how most restaurants serve it… plump and really nicely cooked. One of the only places in Buenos Aires that has a small, yet tasty dim sum menu, Hong Kong Style will remain my top choice for great Chinese food in Barrio Chino. Check out more photos from my favorite place on earth, Barrio Chino.

    “No matter how hard a try, I’ll always be really white.” Haha, love it! (George likes spicy chicken).

    That was some gooooood chinesey. Dumps were good and the kung pao did the trick! Let me know when you’re next up for empanada-flavoured spring rolls and I’m there!

  4. As a 100% purely certified Chinese person, I will agree that most of the food does not do justice to the food of my culture. However, when you enter barrio Chino, there is a plain looking shop with BBQ duck to the right hanging in the front of the window. I ate there with a friend who is from Singapore and the Braised duck gets the stamp of approval for being authentically Chinese.

    Gung Hey Fat Choi!!!
