While Heigei specialises in seafood, the comprehensive menu also offers dim sum, fried rice, wanton noodles and more. You could go all-out for the multicourse meal (from ¥6,600 at dinner), which comes with dishes like crab and salmon roe cooked in a Hong Kong clay pot, teppan-grilled shrimp with crispy black rice, and Cantonese roast duck.
But if you only try one thing, make sure it's the typhoon shelter mud crab (¥6,000) or prawns (¥3,000). Unique to Hong Kong's seafaring community, this bold and punchy cuisine is characterised by its liberal use of fried garlic, red chilli and scallion. The toasty garlic and the fiery chilli are the perfect flavour enhancer to the fleshy seafood, making the dishes immensely moreish and addictive.
Come for lunch on weekdays and you can enjoy the typhoon shelter prawns for just ¥2,200. Make sure you get here early, as there are only five servings per day. Otherwise, there are more lunch sets available, priced from ¥1,400, and come with soup as well as your choice of dim sum or dessert.
