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.read more
“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.
With two fabulous experiences we had, as mentioned in previous post, we were ready for more, just to satisfy our sweet tooth. Here’re the following stores:
3) Yee Shun Milk Company (义顺牛奶公司)
If you wished to have dairy products and eggy dessert, don’t miss these, Double-steamed Milk Pudding (双皮奶), and Steamed Egg Pudding (炖蛋). This well-known dairy shop, Yee Shun Milk Company (义顺牛奶公司) served terrific milk desserts.
Double-steamed Milk Pudding could be served hot or chilled. I preferred it warm as it yields smoother and softer texture in the palate. It has also stronger milky taste than the chilled pudding. Most importantly, the hot milk pudding comes with a layer of ‘milk skin’ which created from its “double-steaming” effect (see above). It was a very unique mouth feel, indescribable. You have to really try it to know…. :)read more
How could anyone resist dessert in Hong Kong? From hot piping sweet paste to chilled icy sweet dessert, never missed the sweet life here.
I tried a few popular dessert shops located all around Hong Kong. Let’s see.
1) First, the famous chain stores named Hui Lau Shan Healthy Dessert (许留山).
One of the popular names for sweet treats that came within your sight almost everywhere in Hong Kong, even in New Territories (新界区)! We went to outlet at: Hui Lau Shan in Causeway Bay (銅鑼灣)@ 24-30 Percival Street, Po Hon Building, the 26th G/F (波斯富街24-30號寶漢大廈地下26號舖). read more
“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!read more
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).
We took MTR from Mongkok to Sha Tin, and transferred to mini bus for a shuttle ride. Just cross the overhead bridge after alighting at the nearest bus stop opposite the hotel. This hotel is located near Hong Kong Ikea furniture mall. Address: 22 Ha Wo Che Shatin, NT, Hong Kong (香港新界沙田下禾輋22號). Check out exact direction here: My Note Book on the Web.read more
