Hong Kong Guide Pt 2: What to Eat!

What’s Hong Kong without these fantastic food?
Hong Kong is really famous for it’s food and shopping!
So i’m sure my guide is very important to you as we spent almost the whole trip eating!

So now, take this down.
PLACES TO EAT!

1) TIM HO WAN 添好运
Dim sum is a must!
It’s not because it taste oh-so-heavenly..
The reason to try Tim Ho Wan at HK is because we Singaporeans, 
have been queuing up all day for this restaurant in our country.

Naturally, it makes sense to try the authentic version at HK right?
What’s more, it has been award the Michelin award.
It’s also cheaper than the outlet in SG.
But don’t worry, after you’ve tried this, 
I’ll recommend other much tastier HK dim sum/ food(:

Food that you must order:
Char Siew Bao
Chee Cheong Fun
Malay Steamed Cake (Ma Lai Gao)

2) MAK’S NOODLES  麥奀雲吞麵世家
Another not the most-fantastic noodles, 
but the one brand that has gotten to our Must-try list for tourists in HK!
Don’t get me wrong once again..
the noodles taste great!!! It’s delicious!
But for this restaurant, the downsides are that the portions are too small and 
probably too over-rated cause it’s expensive compared to a local stall.

But try it anyway! it’s really good(:
I’ll recommend another noodle place which is so good that
you will have to go back twice during your trip at least!! 
(RESTAURANT NO.4 BELOW)
But guys, try this first, then you’ll get what i mean.

Food that you must order:
Shrimp Wanton noodles
Beef noodles

3) AUSTRALIA DAIRY CO. 澳洲牛奶公司
Definitely another MUST-GO!
But i don’t think this place is over-rated at all..
it’s really up to it’s name!
Blend in to the local flavours with reasonable local prices.

You may come here for breakfast/ desserts!
Don’t be shocked to a super long queue, but it moves really fast so just queue anyway ok people, don’t give this up on this is awesome shit!

Food that you must order:
Scrambled egg on a buttered toast
Milk Tea
Macaroni
Dun Nai Original Milk Flavoured
(MY FAVOURITE CAN-EAT-ALL-DAY-EVERYDAY, 
and i personally likes the dun Nai from PLACE NO.5 more actually)

Had fun taking photos while queueing too!
The stairs are so damn photogenic.

4) SUPREME BEEF BRISKET SOUP 
澳門九記清湯腩王 
46 Portland Street , Yau Ma Tei 
油麻地砵蘭街46號

 MUST TRY MUST EAT MUST COME BACK!
haha pardon me if i exaggerated but it’s really so good and so so affordable!
Words just can’t describe anymore ahahaha
It has famous actress/actors pictures all over the restaurant 
which is similar to our Founder’s Ba Ku Teh.
Somehow their local delight i guess!
The beef literally melt in my mouth ahahaha

Food that you must order:
Shrimp Wanton noodles
Beef noodles
Beef brisket (single dish)- 80 HKD

5) YEE SHUN MILK COMPANY
 義順牛奶公司 
Well, if you have read my comment in place no.3, yep i like the desserts here better!
There are also stuffs like red bean desserts and you can always stop by here 
for snacks like sausages with sunny-side up.

Food that you must order:
Dun Nai Original Milk Flavoured
(IS REALLY GOOD HERE! especially if you like it more milky!
It is really smooth and sweet.)

6) Lian Xiang Lou (莲香楼)
Another MUST-EAT!!!!
The food here are so damn good!!!
Regardless whether it’s dim sum/ dinner.
However, the dim sum here is a must try.
And it leads you back to the old hongkee days where you have to “fight” for the dim sum.
Old ladies would push out trolleys and trolleys of dim sum so you just go to them and get yours!
An advice would be to go earlier in the morning to get your dim sum as 
when it gets later, the variety runs out!

Get their traditional tea instead of the one in a pot if you would like to experience better!
(Will upload dimsum pics soon)

OKAY, those guides above are all about the restaurants..
Now, i’ll introduce some awesome snacks/ cafe bites!

7)  COLD NOODLES 百塔冷
Located in the heart of Mongkok, at the entrance of one the shopping mall.
It is almost like yong tau fu, where you get to choose the type of ingredients you want in your noodles.
The noodles is bitesize, maybe 5 mouth worth of noodles?
It has this sweet and spicy sauce that makes it taste so good
I personally love the octopus cause it’s so fresh!
Must grab this cold bite okay!



8) CAFE-HOPPING!
Yes, imma hipster hahaha #shameless
but i do realised that nowadays, Singaporeans love cafe-hopping more than anything!

In a hidden street of HK Da hung area,
lies many cafes/restaurants which allow you to cafe-hop like crazy!
It reminds us of our very SG Tiong Bahru Area.
Quite pretty for ya to take lots of hipsters photos,
and have local food/jap food/ ice creams!



Plus-point:
HELLO KITTY CAFE
is located inside this area as well.

Just in case any ladies would like to dine in,
the cafe is super small and the queue is super long, 
Do go early to queue if you really wanna dine in..
Take Note:
And they don’t allow takeaway as well, 
Takeaways are only available in their counter cafe i
Causeway bay SOGO mall basement food place.


9) BISTRO & PUBS 
AND SOME CAFES- SOHO AREA
It reminds us of our very SG Holland Village/ Clarke Quay.

You can always pop by here at night to have a good bistro dinner and some beer!
Besides, LAN KWAI FONG is just round the corner,
so feel free to eat nearby before going clubbing!

Some other visuals..

Clubbed at MAGNUM…
And it’s too damn packed on a saturday night.
Too squeezy ahahha

Must buy cosmetics/beauty products..
