Food and drink
If you don't approve of shark's fin, you don't have to eat it. There's plenty of straightforward Cantonese fare coming out of the kitchen every couple of minutes.
See "shark's fin" above; the abalone is hand picked, bird's nest similarly top quality, and the ham sourced from a special supplier in Shanghai.
Eating is serious. The big bosses will be cloistered away in a private room. Otherwise it's bright lights, mirrors, various architectural accoutrements to suggest good fortune and reasonably noisy, even if it's just people slurping.
As a visitor, and a non-regular, you'll be treated well; ask if you don't understand the menu - your inquisitiveness will be appreciated.
The restaurant's been going strong for the past four decades, during which time Wan Chai has dragged itself upmarket step by step.
Steer clear of abalone etc and it should be about HK$400 per head.
Also in Kowloon, Shenzhen, Shanghai and various cities in Japan.
