Hong Kong Winter 2011 - Day 5 (Good bye...)

Time to go back... was a bit reluctant to leave due to the nice cool weather and awesome food we had for the past few days :(

Breakfast (total spent: HKD104)
We ordered 2 breakfast sets (HKD52/set)... comes with ham/mushroom, bacon, an egg, beans, garlic toast, a small cup of fresh orange juice and coffee :)
Pretty different from the normal Hong Kong style breakfast, this one is more... western :P
By the way, this cafe is pretty cozy :)

That's all for this round! We will try not to go to Hong Kong within these few years and give other countries a chance :P
Hong Kong is a very nice place, excellent food! We will return in a few years time, maybe with our future kid :P

Thanks for reading :)

Hong Kong Winter 2011 - Day 4 (Central, Wan Chai)

There's nothing much to do except eat during winter :P

Breakfast (total spent: HKD38)
We shared a Western breakfast set, nothing special, tasted good though :)
There's something about eggs in Hong Kong... they are delicious for some reason, maybe they don't have that fishy "egg" smell?

Address: Capital Café (華星冰室) - Shop B1, G/F, Kwong Sang Hong Building, 6 Heard Street, Wan Chai (Wan Chai MTR Exit A2 (opposite of Joy Hing))

Snack (total spent: HKD36)
We returned to Tai Cheung Bakery for their egg tarts and this time we tried their BBQ pork pie (HKD8/piece), pretty good actually... too bad we forgot to snap a photo before we ate :(

Lunch (total spent: HKD36)
We found this place via openrice.com as well, was a bit hard to find as the shop is located behind a stall and the entrance is narrower than a normal door :x
what's more, its seriously packed!

we tried their specialties -  french toast (HKD16), pork chop bun (HKD17) and "simut nai cha" (uhh... sock tea milk? :P) (HKD17)

The food here is pretty good, especially the pork chop bun :)
The honey jar is for the toast, I'd say more authentic than K*m G*ry :P

A hungry day... we forgot how many small meals we had today :x

We went back to the shop we visited previously in 2009 (HK 2009 Day 2)
The fishball noodles are fantastic, we tried their porridge/congee this time, pei dan sau yuk (preserved duck egg and pork)
Tad salty but its amazing how they can make the texture is super smooth!
Porridge wise, we recommend the one in Mongkok (HK 2009 Day 3)

You know... a funny thing happened during this meal, as we know "gwei lou" is a general term used to address Caucasians, might sound offensive to some but its already widely recognized...
so instead of saying "here comes 2 gwei lou", the cashier at the front said "here comes to hellos" :x
Pretty creative use of words!

Anyway, after the meal we had a walk around Harbour City, the largest mall in Hong Kong! Lot's of attractions :)

Had a drink at Starbucks, ours legs are sore after walking around the entire day... and strangely we have no idea why this is called Iced blended mocha, it's still ice cubes :x
Beautiful Christmas decos and night view at 1881 Heritage just nearby :)

Its was a seriously long day, my back was sore due to the DSLR that I was carrying, not to mention a bottle of water as well! We dropped off our stuff at the hotel and headed downstairs for dinner at Cafe EOS

Dinner (total spent: HKD170)
We passed by this place every night, no long queues but it's always packed
My phone's camera is not working so didn't manage to capture anything :(

We ordered angle hair with crab meat dinner set, it came with soup and coffee (HKD95) and fettucine with bacon (HKD75), pretty good so we decided to return the next morning for breakfast before our early flight :)

Felt like the longest day in Hong Kong :P
