“My first not-so-pleasant hot pot dining experience with Peir 88 of Tau Heung branch restaraunts in Hong Kong. Read this now and pick up some tips ad tricks here on how to order your hotpot meal in Hong Kong pleasantly!”
2nd day of my HK ‘return‘ trip, we had ALL-TIME-BEST Dim Sum brunch at the City Hall Maxim’s Palace (大会堂美心皇宮) located at City Hall Low Block 2nd Floor, Hong Kong. I strived to make it a sure-thing to have Dim Sum there again whenever I return for a vacation. I simply loved the Dim Sum here, especially their steaming hot, soft and flowy custard bun with fragrant salted egg yolk, still as nice as a year ago..
“All-time packed authentic road side store which you shouldn’t miss, for their signature fragrant crisped bun and refreshing tomato noodle soup!”
Sheung Wan and Central (上环/ 中环) have so many good eating places including the very famous Lian Xiang Lou (莲香楼), for Dim Sum breakfast, but in fact, were not really impressed by it, frankly. Today, what I am going to post is a true value-for-money local breakfast place, the Hong Kong 大排挡 (road side store) named 胜香园 (Mandarin as: Sheng Xiang Yuan; Cantonese as: Sing Heong Yun).
“This is one of the good meals, if healthy and light soup dish is your No.1 choice, try Sang Kee Fresh Fish Soup Bee Hoon!”
This actually was our very first meal (before having afternoon tea at The Peninsula Hotel) upon arrival, right after settling our accommodation at the nice hotel located at Tin Hau area (location next to Causeway Bay). Yes, we went to Sheung Wan area first after the check-in, not just for this recommended healthy lunch, we had several things to get from this area, too. The best soy sauce from a traditional shop nearby, and boots from a road store selling at very reasonable price as compared to many other places were on my list.

Hi! Even though it has been more than 3 months since I came back from Hong Kong trip, I have not blogged anything about it yet, except that some photos were taken and posted up instantly on my FB Fan Club.
If you are going to visit Hong Kong soon, you may check out my suggestions on some good eating places I have posted a year ago, and do stay tune for more! And for now, I have this post to start with..
“Healthy seafood soup dish, loved its subtle and soothing flavour”
Healthy seafood & melon soup which was done with steaming method. Not the usual boiling stuff direct from the stove though, soup made from steaming method yields very smooth mouthfeel. It gives a very soothing effect to the throat and even the entire body. Hubby who does not really like clams, loved this. He well commented the subtle flavour of the soup without a trace of ‘fishy taste’ which usually found in the clam. Winter melon in the soup was very soft, too.
“Something simple to prepare at home to refresh and quench your thirst in the sunny afternoon.”
Really occupied recently, apologise if you have waited for me to update my blog.. As much as I wished to write better recipe for you, I was really tied up with my work and personal affairs. Please don’t mind, if I posted a simple drink recipe for today.
