Hongkies is the name that the good folk of Hong Kong call themselves, so it stands to reason that Perth’s premier Hong Kong style restaurant should choose it as their moniker. While we are all familiar with the classics of Chinese cuisine, the food of Hong Kong is unique within the parameters of Chinese cooking, as it applies traditional techniques to a more Westernised range of ingredients: expect to see dishes such as spaghetti with pork chop, fried rice in tomato sauce and steamed king prawn with garlic butter. Take a trip to Hongkies on William Street in Northbridge, right in the centre of Perth, to find out what they have to offer.
