|Zong was one of the three restaurants open that night|
All three of us were in the mood for good Chinese food and luckily, Zong has an abundance of that. We started the meal with the generic Jelly Fish Salad with Century Duck Eggs. It wasn’t bad, but it’s not the best (I like Lutong Macau‘s version better).

The appetizing scent of fantastically roasted duck tickled my appetite so that I started eating without waiting for the other dishes to arrive (it was the first main dish served). It was as good as it smelled.
The soup was tasty without being salty or too oily, the noodles were aplenty and not too soggy, and the duck was juicy and very flavorful. It reminded me of noodle soups from those hole-in-the-wall eateries in Hong Kong (where you get the best nomz). Zong’s Roast Duck Noodle Soup has become my favorite dish at Zong and one of my favorite dishes ever.
|Spareribs and Tausi Rice Topping (p168)|
My folks ordered less than stellar dishes (compared to the Roast Duck Noodle Soup). My dad had the Spareribs and Tausi Rice Topping while my mom ordered the X.O. Fish Rice Topping. Both were in thick brown sauce and topped on rice. To be honest, the only difference was the meat used- one was pork and the other was fish. Both tasted almost the same to me.

Zong has always been a reliable restaurant since they started years ago. They have good Chinese nomz at prices a bit higher than mainstream Chinese restaurants in the city but you get better ambiance and service. And they serve pretty good duck.

- If I were to pick one thing I miss most about trying to eat low carb, it’s pasta. This is why on really bad days, I gorge on instant noodles. 😨 For shame. Anyway, when I found out about @7grainspantry’s Protein Pasta which are made from two ingredients- edamame and water, I was sold. High on protein and fiber, this is the ultimate carb substitute. #happyhealthyawesome #BTMcooks #BTMrecommends #edamamepasta #proteinpasta - August 25, 2017
- Those tiny grain like things sprinkled on top of this chia pudding is @manitobaharvest’s Hemp Hearts. Rich in two essential fatty acids, omega-3 and omega-6, hemp seeds are really good for health. Kinda reminds me of pine nuts in both taste and texture. #hempseeds #dailychia #chiapudding - August 24, 2017
