Hong Kong 2011- Day 5

29 Jan

Hello all!

I’m finally blogging on day 5! Sorry for the delay 😛

Well… Our initial plan on our itinerary was to head over to ocean park but in the end we decided to chuck away our plans and head for more shopping as well as avenue of stars (which we missed out on day 4)

Just in case you forgot what was on day 4, here’s the link:

Early up in the morning, we headed to  queue the oh so famous 添好運點心專門店 🙂

look at the crowd.

we were told to come back 2 hours time

so we headed to source for other good food places to start our day! 🙂

our first stop was…………………….

金華冰廳 Kam Wah Café        
Address:
G/F, 47 Bute Street (Prince Edward) 太子弼街47號地下
Directions: Across the street from the quaint gold fish market at, tung choi street. We walked all the way from ladies street over to bute street, is easy if you have a map with you 🙂
Famous for: 菠蘿油 (polo bun), egg tart & milk tea

Take a look at the range of food they served

The shop interior

Some newspaper articles pasted in the shop!

Since its recommended for its polobun, egg tart and milk tea, we definitely must give it a try!

My polobun!
My Opinion: BEST POLO BUN EVER! Its crust is really crispy and its the yumiest polo bun i’ve ever tried so far. Must TRY! 😀 just looking at the picture now made me miss it ;(

The egg tart.
My opinion: The taste is alright, not too bad but i reckon the tai cheong bakery egg tart is nicer than this

Milk tea
My opinion: Its actually quite good too! but comparing to the one at lan fong yuen, the latter is better 🙂

We also ordered the pork bun to try which actually causes us to be too full to enjoy the dim sum later 😦
My opinion: ERR, do not order this is you can. It ain’t worth it to waste your calories.

Look at the range of pastries outside the cafe. Looks so yummy! wanted to pack some away but supposed it won’t be as nice as how you eat it on the spot so i forgo the idea.

The entire meal cost us HK$57 (S$9.5), quite worth it isn’t it?

Thereafter it was just nice for us to head back for our dim sum lunch!
We were actually p full from the brunch we had at the cafe earlier. Here’s the address!

添好運點心專門店 Tim Ho Wan Dim Sum Expert
Address: G/F, Phase 2, Tsui Yuen Mansion, 2-20 Kwong Wa St, Mong Kok 旺角廣華街2-20號翠園大廈二期地下8號舖
Opening hours: Daily 10am-11pm.
Directions: take exit A2 of Yau Ma Tei MRT station, you will see a hospital on your right. Follow the hospital building, to reach the other side of the hospital and you should be able to find the place 🙂

When we’re back, there was still queue outside =.=”

how the shop looks like inside. Its a cosy little space with many people sitting inside, really cosy.

look at the menu 🙂

We ordered quite a few dishes even though we were pretty full!
(well since we’re here might as well try most of the food isn’t it?)

glutinous rice with chicken and mushroom in it

mmmm, i forgot whats this. Theres’ prawn, vegetable dumpling?

Steamed vermecili with prawns

One of the recommended items, baked bun with BBQ Pork (Char Shao Bao)

pretty yummy but a little salty to me

my all time favourite har gao, prawn dumpling

After our 2 meals consecutively, we burn our calories by SHOPPING! Shopping places around mongkok area are all stated in my day 4 post so check it out over there! After a day of shopping, it was almost time for dinner! We headed to Central for Esprit stores and H&M for part II of shopping.

Wonder where we headed for dinner? The place is famous for the roast goose! 🙂

鏞記酒家 Yung Kee Restaurant
Address: 32-40 Wellington Street, (Central) 中環威靈頓街32-40號
Openning Hours: 11am to 1130pm, daily
Famous for: Roasted goose

Sorry i forgot to take the exterior. It’s actually a 3-storey high building just along the shophouses.
The menu

The shop with 3 levels, busy busy.

We ordered 3 dishes and 2 bowl of rices!
First dish: Vegetable 🙂 Stay healthy, eat at least 2 servings of veggies

Yummy goose! Not too bad.

Pretty yummy Tofu! i like 🙂

This meal is pretty expensive, cost us HK$385 (S$64.1). If you were to ask me would I pay to eat that again, i would say NO.
It’s a decent meal but i would rather eat more yummy good affordable food than spending on an expensive one 🙂

We headed to the avenue of stars thereafter! 😀
Managed to catch the symphony of lights at 8pm.

Nice night view

It was a very windy night!

leg almost freeze. Thank goodness my feet is kept warm in my shoes.

We walked back to our hotel thereafter.
Passed by shopping malls where they were promoting toy story land in Disneyland! 🙂

oh & did i mentioned that christmas deco was up in all malls too? 😀 love em cause it’s so prettyyyy

&& on our way back, we headed for Starbucks just right round the corner from our hotel to warm ourselves.

&& the cheesecake looks so tempting, we brought it back to have a taste 🙂
Cost us HK$30 (S$5), not much difference between sing & HK isn’t it?

That’s about it! YAY! I’m finally done with Day 5 post!
Stay tuned for the last part of Hong Kong trip 2011 😀 The itinerary includes heading to Macau for a day on day 6 🙂
