Silky Smooth Congee for Breakfast in the Winter

“Comforting breakfast during the winter season, this pipping hot & silky smooth porridge from Mui Kee Congee (妹記), is one of the best.”

Came to know the delicious congee stall, Mui Kee, also from a TVB programme that we happened to watch before our Hong Kong trip. Hence, we added it into our itineries, thinking to give it a try when we were there.

The location of the congee stall was convenient to us as it wasn’t too far away from our hotel in Kowloon area. However, the direction to get there wasn’t explicit, we had quite a hard time to locate the building where the congee stall was. From the published address, we knew the building as 市政大厦 (Municipal Services Building). When we tried to ask for direction, no one seemed to know which building we were referring to. Perhaps it was termed differently by the residents. Wandering around the vicinity, we finally met a good folk who was able to guide us to the right direction. read more

Hong Kong Local Food – Steamed Red Bean Sticky Pudding (砵仔糕)

“A nostalgic snack in Hong Kong”

Steamed red bean sticky pudding, Put Chai Ko 砵仔糕, is one of the traditional local snacks in Hong Kong since the early days. The pudding cake is usually palm-size, and is sweet in taste. It is soft set and able to hold its molded shape outside of a bowl.

Put Chai Ko is simply an ordinary sweet food to many Asians, but it seems so popular and well-liked by the people in Hong Kong. And yes, I liked it, too. Loved its soft sponginess, but I could only get the desired consistency of the Put Chai Ko from this mobile food cart in the Central district. read more

Hong Kong Local Food – ‘Pineapple Bun with Butter’ Bo Lo Yao (菠萝油)

“The comfort food, Bo Lo Yao (菠萝油) and French Toast (西多士), in Hong Kong. Don’t forget also the aromatic Milk Tea!”

There were so many reasons for us to choose our hotel stay in Kowloon side during our trip this time. The ultimate reason, food, yummy food, of all kinds.

We stayed near Mongkok (旺角), accessible by public transportations. This seemingly more “shoddy” side of the area was notoriously crowded. To me, it was the shopping and most of all, food. I thought it was for good. read more

“The perfectly moist scrambled egg “

Came back from my holiday in Hong Kong & Macau just not too long, already miss the city and good food there! Feeling nostalgic, I would write and share my enticing food journey over the vacation. ~

We found this cafe during our online research on more yummy food in Hong Kong before our trip commenced. Noted that this Australia Dairy Co (澳洲牛奶公司), located at 49 Parkes St, Kowloon, Hong Kong, was lauded as the best breakfast place serving the perfect scrambled egg, I was really hyped up by the fact that I would get to taste it real soon. read more
