Photos of our meals in Hong Kong from the phone camera.
Our first meal in Hong Kong, aka we were starved and decided to eat a little before walking around. My first experience of eating in a traditional eatery – complete with knocking knees with an old man who was sitting right opposite us in a very small booth. Food was decent.
Kau Kee beef noodles has tons of accolades. And they kinda do deserve them. This was a great second part to our dinner. Yum. There are also some interesting interior design / lifestyle shops such as Homeless and Visionaire on Gough Street.
So… apparently I got the wrong address for Tim Ho Wan in Mongkok. Instead I had the Tsim Sha Shui branch address, with directions for the Mongkok main restaurant. That was funny-ish.
Teakha’s fig scone was good.
Everything about Café Deadend was foul. The attitude, non-existent service and its drink offerings. Bad.
We chanced upon this restaurant on our way down from the Central Mid-Levels escalator. This was the triple combi rice – I picked goose, soy sauce chicken and something else.
This was Sarah’s order – the triple treasure rice that had a SALTED EGG (love) and miscellaneous unidentifiable cuts of meat.
Heading up to The Peak in a dress wasn’t the wisest decision. Half-frozen, we headed down to the Hong Kong Day café in the basement of the mall. This condensed milk toast was awesome. Awesome! Condensed milk + butter = yes yes yes.
Blah. Before leaving for Macau, we had breakfast at the Soft Aroma café beneath our hotel. This was lackluster.
We had a lot of food while walking around on our Macau day trip (egg tarts, almond cookies, pork chop bun, milk tea (x2.5), gifted slice of beef jerky). We also realised on that day that we aren’t fans of the steamed milk puddings. We passed by the shop on our way back to the ferry terminal, and decided to pop in for some dessert. Maybe the Yee Shun shop in Macau isn’t as great?
For some reason, this was the last photo I took of our food in Hong Kong. This was on our third night at a char chan ting near the hotel. Sarah had stir fry beef with veg and I had an extremely bone-full slice of steamed fish.
