Signature Crispy “Piggy” Bun & Fresh Tomato Noodle Soup at 勝香園 @ Sheung Wan, HK Island (香口脆脆和番茄汤面 @ 上環勝香園大排檔)

“All-time packed authentic road side stall which you shouldn’t miss, for their signature fragrant crisped bun and refreshing tomato noodle soup!”

There were so many good eating places in the area of Sheung Wan and Central (上環/ 中環), including the very famous dim sum place, Lian Xiang Lou (莲香樓). But nope, it was not about dim sum, this post featured the value-for-money local breakfast place, 勝香園/ 胜香园 (Cantonese as: Sing Heong Yun), a Hong Kong Dai Pai Dong 大排檔 (roadside stall).

Again, we came to know about this popular roadside stall through a TVB drama series. Smart me was wondering if the stall truly existed in real life, and online research shown that other than the stall name differs a little, the stall as well as its location was actually real! More

Sang Kee Fresh Fish Soup Bee Hoon at Sheung Wan, Hong Kong Island (上環生記鮮魚汤米线)

“Eat what the locals eat.”

We booked our hotel accommodation in Tin Hau area (next to Causeway Bay) where plenty of yummy street food were found. Right after checking in, we were eager to find some food to fill our famished stomachs. However, we did not hang around Tin Hau area for street food. I thought the popular noodle soup would be just right for us, for its convenient location in Sheung Wan, where I needed also to shop for my soy sauce (from Kowloon Soy Co.), and some nice and cheap boots from a streetside stall there. Without further delay, we set off quickly, by MTR.


生記鮮魚汤米線 (Sang Kee)
Since it was weekday noon hour, this tiny shop was swamped by lunchtime crowd, mainly the locals. Many customers were seen waiting eagerly for their turn to get seated. No queueing needed, the shop operates a simple paper ticket queuing system. Though just a hand scribbled ticket number, it was good enough to handle those hungry customers. Upon arrival, just approach the front counter, inform your headcount, take the paper with your designated number and head outside. Don’t crowd at the front counter as it was the cashier as well as the only door in & out. More

Afternoon Tea @ The Lobby at The Peninsula Hotel, Hong Kong

“Enjoy luxury afternoon tea in this elegant rendezvous at The Peninsula Hotel, HK (香港半島酒店)”
Apparently, this was a trend. Really. Seemingly dedicating only to the rich and formal, countless numbers of tourists were spotted, too. 

Yes, this place. An elegant afternoon tea rendezvous for the rich “tai tai” (wealthy Mrs.), often featured in the Hong Kong TVB shows. In Hong Kong, they called it, 嘆下午茶 (taan haa mm cha). Haha.. It made me curious to find out more.

To our surprise, there was a very long queue even at the time of 5pm! What? 5pm More

“Condoms” Restaurant in Bangkok: Cabbages & Condoms

“A good Thai restaurant that comes with condoms?!”

Just visited Bangkok (again), for a short 3 days 2 nights trip. Yes, due to time constrain, we had to pack all itineraries full in the 3 days. Shop, eat, eat, shop… :) I was sure Bangkok is no stranger to most Singaporean shoppers and foodies, you probably knew the city inside out. :)

Yes, Bangkok is a well-known gourmet paradise as most of the eating places even the roadside stalls were hardly disappointing. More

Hong Kong-Style Cafe Food

“Tsui Wah Restaurant (翠華餐廳) serves great Hong Kong-style Local Food”

Tsui Wah Restaurant was the most famous local-style cafe in Hong Kong. A chain-stores of Hong Kong Cha Chan Ting (茶餐厅), Tsui Wah had many outlets located islandwide. For convenience, we only patronized the outlets at Wellington Street, Central, and Causeway Bay.

I loved this very simple-yet-delicious dish, the soft-boned pork meat noodles. It was flavorful, the pork was so tender with almost melt-in-the-mouth texture. Yummy! More

Shatin Roast Pigeon in Hong Kong (沙田乳鸽)


“Shatin Lung Wah Pigeon (沙田龙华乳鸽)”

We went all the way to Sha Tin (沙田) just to have the famous roast pigeon. A well known area specially for roast pigeon. This was the area of roast bird which I longed for. I knew I had to get my feet there, at least for once. :)

After much consideration, our final choice landed at this decades-old restaurant, Lung Wah Hotel (沙田龙华酒店). More
