Fresh seasonal fare

The food at HKG features locally-inspired cuisine which included Chinese chicken soup, steamed dumplings, and asian desserts.

The Chinese radish and chicken soup was flavorful, but the rest of the food offerings were disappointing. The main entrees were dry and bland. Most airport lounges in Asia have excellent food, so it's hard to compete. 

If I were to compare the food to the U.S. Centurion Lounges, the U.S. wins because of the quality.

The steamed shrimp dumplings were okay, and I was hoping they would feature more varieties of dim sum.

I was pleasantly surprised to find osmanthus wolfberry jelly at the dessert station — a must try! The mini cheesecake and raspberry mousse cake were also delicious.
