Chomping in Hong Kong

20 hours in Hong Kong, let’s see how much I can blurt.

I was there for two weeks. I mentioned about it in the last post, didn’t I?

Technically, I have 20 waking hours to myself in the city. I got a day before the start of the training and a day after the training ended. That’s where I landed with 20 waking hours. Hahaha Had to plan it that way so I have some taste of Hong Kong. The rest of the time was spend in training, finish daily homework and prepare for the exam.

FOOD FIRST! Honestly, I looked forward to food the most. I knew I won’t have the time to do the sightseeings.

Dimsum to start with! Tim Ho Wan!

That’s all I can fit into my empty stomach. It’s not the best but beggar can’t be chooser. Haven’t got a decent dimsum for a while. Deprived af hahahaha.

Tummy sorted, explored the Central area on the first day, it’s super Hong Kong to me. The scenes in movie and drama which we have been watching since little came to life.

Navigating around in Central requires some energy though. There are slopes and stairs you definitely can’t escape from. Might be a problem for people with mobility issue, not to mention the pathways are miserably narrow.

Look at the slopes and there were stalls on both sides of the narrow street. Literally panting after reaching the top of it and the quads burning.

Explored the area by foot and I stumbled upon Kaws: Along the way exhibition. Kaws is an American artist and designer. Known for the figurative sculptures which were turned from his early days 2D paintings.

This huge sculpture on the left which you will never miss it happens to be in your city. There was a short queue and took me probably 15mins to get in, not too bad.

The sculpture on the right really is so relatable to me. Often we judge from what we see rather than finding out the truth. I have been trying to stop doing that for a while.

It’s so nice to have something around the corner. The humidity and air quality put me into extreme exhaustion.

Turned around a corner to find a stall selling desserts. Ordered green bean, the one on the left. I am not expecting this but it turned out so refreshing with some crunchy ice shaving bits in the soup.

Made a small detour to grab a Lan Fong Yuen HK style milk tea, the one on the right. It’s diluted and did not live up to the standard it deemed to be.

I was so exhausted by 2pm and went back to the hotel to check in.

First thing I did was to get a nice warm shower. Phew, after more than 30hours of no shower. I wonder how I could survive a drought. The rest of the afternoon was spend unpacking stuff for the two weeks stay and iron all my clothes.

Rest well in the afternoon till it was time for dinner. Did a quick Google to find a good local cafe for dinner. Found this local cafe in that’s less than 10mins walk.

I wanted a polo bun, HK style milk tea and ham macaroni set. It wasn’t available as dinner set and I ordered the closest one.

I had the polo bun which was up to my alley because I love heavy bread or bun. It was crusty on top, soft and a little heavy on the inside. I asked for extra marjerin to go with it, it was sooooo gooodddd.

Good balance between the milk and tea, and thankfully sweetness level was just nice too.

I ordered something to do with ham for nothing will go wrong with ham. Hahahaha I was glad when it was served, ham omelette. I was looking for something light. Perfect for me!

I had plenty of food during the course of 12 days in Hong Kong. I would go for a nice dinner after training. Here comes all the foodie photossssss!

I was being greedy and decide to get a small wanton noodle and order a stir fried beef flat noodle. The wanton in the noodle was so good but not so much on the noodle. Beef noodle didn’t taste as good as I’d expect it to be. How a Michelin star restaurant can go so wrong, I really have no idea. I would like to keep this restaurant secret because there’s nothing to shout about.

Visited Crystal Jade for some dumplings, sichuan sour and spicy noodle and glutinous rice ball with ginger soup. Dumplings and glutinous rice ball were really good. The noodle was disappointing as it wasn’t sour to start with. Practically gave it a generous vinegar shower (provided on the table). Couldn’t finish the noodle but that’s basically the most I can stomach.

Checked out Café Terceira and was so excited, it’s my first Macau food experience. Had the pork belly burger and Portugues tart. Burst in happiness while having the Portuguese tart. Pork belly was crunchy but it was a little gamey.

On some nights, I would have random food. From left, Vermicelli Sheet with BBQ Pork *major thumbs up* from Nha Tra, healthy (looks like but it was filling) dinner from Muji and linguine from one restaurant (can’t remember the name of the restaurant)

The star of the trip, roast goose! Everyone mentioned roast goose when I say I am visiting HK. If you know me well enough, I seldom go out of my ordinary meat selection (pork, chicken, beef, lamb, some seafood and nothing out of the norm). Got out of my comfort zone and tried Kam’s roast goose for dinner. It was michelin star rated, don’t ask how much star they got. It just pop up in my search list when I was looking for roast goose near my hotel. Got a number from and queued for 30mins, so it wasn’t that bad at all.

Ordered a portion of quarter roast goose and wanted the roast pork belly but I couldn’t stomach so much. Look at the roast goose serving size, I got then lean part of the roast goose. It was huge and I was stuffed after emptying the plate. The sauce complement and goes well with roast goose. It was really nicely roast and not gamey at all. Verdict, you must try roast goose in HK. hahaha

There are actually more I had but I am too lazy to dig out more photos. I spend most of the waking hours eating other than attending training, guilty max.

This post stayed in draft for 3 months now, don’t want to put this in draft for any longer. Till next time people! xx

  26. Hi i am kavin, its my first occasion to commenting anywhere,
    when i read this piece of writing i thought i could also
    make comment due to this brilliant piece of writing.

  27. Have you ever considered about including a little bit more than just your articles?
    I mean, what you say is valuable and all. However think about if you added some great photos or video clips to
    give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with pics and clips, this site could definitely be one of the best in its niche.
    Very good blog!

  28. You actually make it appear really easy with your presentation but I to find this matter to
    be actually one thing that I feel I might by no means understand.
    It seems too complicated and very vast for me.
    I’m taking a look ahead to your subsequent post, I will attempt to get
    the hold of it!

  29. Excellent pieces. Keep posting such kind of information on your page.
    Im really impressed by your site.

  30. Excellent way of describing, and fastidious paragraph to take data
    on the topic of my presentation focus, which i am going to
    present in school.

  31. naturally like your website however you need to
    check the spelling on several of your posts. Several of them are rife with spelling issues and I find it
    very troublesome to tell the reality on the other hand I’ll definitely come again again.

  32. Woah! I’m really enjoying the template/theme of this blog.
    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s tough to get that “perfect balance” between usability and visual
    appearance. I must say that you’ve done a very good job with this.
    Additionally, the blog loads super quick for me on Internet explorer.

    Superb Blog!

  33. Its such as you learn my mind! You appear to know so much about this, like you wrote
    the e book in it or something. I think that you just could do with some percent
    to drive the message house a little bit, however instead
    of that, that is wonderful blog. A great read.
    I will definitely be back.

  34. I really like what you guys are usually up too. This
    sort of clever work and coverage! Keep up the very good works guys I’ve
    incorporated you guys to my blogroll.

  35. At this time it seems like Drupal is the preferred blogging platform
    out there right now. (from what I’ve read) Is that what you are
    using on your blog?

  36. An outstanding share! I have just forwarded this onto a co-worker who was doing a little research on this.
    And he in fact bought me dinner simply because I discovered it for him…
    lol. So allow me to reword this…. Thank YOU for the meal!!

    But yeah, thanx for spending time to discuss this subject here on your site.

  37. I’m really impressed with your writing talents as well as with the layout to your blog.
    Is this a paid subject matter or did you modify it your self?
    Either way keep up the nice high quality writing, it is rare to peer a
    great blog like this one today..

  38. Undeniably believe that that you said. Your favorite
    justification seemed to be on the net the simplest factor to take
    into account of. I say to you, I definitely get irked at the same time as other people consider issues that they plainly don’t understand about.
    You managed to hit the nail upon the top as neatly as outlined out the entire thing with
    no need side-effects , people can take a signal. Will probably be back to get more.
    Thanks

  39. Link exchange is nothing else except it is just placing the other person’s
    blog link on your page at proper place and other person will also do same for you.

  40. Have you ever considered publishing an e-book or guest
    authoring on other blogs? I have a blog centered on the
