After 2.5 years in Hong Kong, we finally went to our first meal at a private kitchen. A private kitchen is rather like a small, private restaurant and quite a unique experience. The one we went to, Da Ping Huo, it quite famous. It is owned and operated by a husband and wife team. The husband works the front of the house and helps serve, and the wife is the head chef and entertainment. At the end of the meal, she sings an opera song, as she is a former Chinese opera star. There is no menu and no choices; however, the meal is multiple courses with lots of variety. The cuisine is Sichuan and very spicy. We absolutely loved it, and it was pretty reasonable. This was the first time in ages that Erik and I went out by ourselves for dinner in Hong Kong.
