The whole object of travel is not to set foot on foreign land; it is at last to set foot on one’s own country as a foreign land.” – G.K. Chesterton

Deliciously fresh seafood @ Rainbow Seafood Restaurant, Lamma Island (Hong Kong)

After hiking 4km in the drizzle and warm humidity across Lamma Island, we were grateful when we reached the end of the trail to a row of seafood restaurants. We decided to lunch at the popular Rainbow Seafood Restaurant, which seems to be a good safe option for a first-time visitor to the island. The restaurant has its own fleet of ferries to shuttle customers from Central and Tsim Sha Tsui to Lamma Island, and we used one of the Rainbow ferries to take us closer to home. The restaurant has a large dining area facing the waterfront, and since we arrived before the lunch crowd, we were given a table right by the water. The staff that served our table did not speak any English, but they were friendly and tried their best to help us with our queries (our boy's food allergies, ferry times etc). There was English on the menu, so ordering was easy, and there were a lot of dishes to choose from. The seafood was fresh, and each dish was prepared well. We left with a very full belly and packed home some leftovers.

The fish tanks of live seafood to beckon at passersby as they walk by the restaurant:

The dining area around 12pm (it was full by the time we left 1.5 hours later - see photo below):

The view from our table:

Spicy clams:

Juicy sweet Scallops with Brocolli:

Steamed Garlic Prawns. Simple but delicious:

The Rainbow Special Fried Rice:

Steamed Crab with Glutinous Rice. The shell was a pain, but the crab was so good, that it was well worth the effort:

This was how full the restaurant was by the time we finished our meal:

We had a good and enjoyable experience at Rainbow Seafood Restaurant. The food was reasonably priced, and I am tempted to peruse the free ferry shuttle to make visits to this restaurant a regular thing.
