There’s still a high concentration of yummitude in Antwerp’s Chinatown, despite it being reduced to only two streets. And Fong Mei is the champion of tradition Cantonese fare, one of the eight great Chinese cuisines. Pui Kwok, Ka Yee Sim and Kwai Lam Leung put all of its techniques to work, from lacquering to roasting, stir-frying and steaming. The decor is nothing to write home about, with its lanterns, photos of Hong Kong Bay, paper tablecloths and a table with a Lazy Susan. Otherwise, it’s got everything you need for a true feast: fried shrimp dumplings; steamed meatloaf; ha kau with coriander; beef tripe with ginger and spring onions; siu mai with mushrooms; grilled tofu with pork; breaded duck cheeks and feet; Cantonese or (not so regional) Peking duck with pancakes and hoisin sauce… Otherwise, you can just stick to the dim sum, ticking off the vast list, which are brought out in baskets before you even have the chance to say stop. // Kiko Zushi
