Hong Kong Express: Westhill Industrial Estate, Westhill
THERE are obviously several things that have to be done when you move into a new area.
But forget all that unpacking, changing address and tidying the place up, top of my list is trying out the local takeaways.
Nestled away in the Westhill’s industrial estate, the Hong Kong Express is a little gem.
Our mixed platter for two starter (£4.50 each) contained all you could want, including spare ribs (sticky, lovely and surprisingly meaty), peanutty chicken skewers and lush sticky prawns.
My dining partner’s sweet chilli beef (£4.80) was nice and crispy, while it had just the right amount of zesty sauce.
I opted for the old favourite – satay chicken (£4.50) – and it didn’t let me down.
While it didn’t have the same peanutty taste as the starter, which would have been too sickly anyway, it was still packed full of lovely chicken and crunchy veg – the perfect way to welcome us to the area.
The total bill, including egg fried rice (£2) and a portion of chips (£1.80), came to £22.10.
