How can it be not to have a great meal in Hong Kong Disneyland itself, after we check in our hotel, Disney’s Hollywood Hotel, we quickly take our free bus ride from our hotel to Hong Kong Disneyland Hotel that have to make a transit change to another platform to transfer ourself to the hotel.
Upon arrival for the first time in this hotel, the decoration and architecture capture our attention and their hotel lobby is elegant Victorian style and will be greeted by two main Disney Character statue of Mickey and Minnie.
As we make our way for our first lunch of the day, we were taken to Crystal Lotus, only then I realise that its an award winning restaurant that offer outstanding cuisine from 4 districts of China, Sichuan, Beijing, Shanghai & Guangdong.
A contemporary dining experience that the place is very cosy and quite quiet even though many customers were in there.
Lets take a peek what they have for us . .
This is our lunch that being organise and all look so yummy or I should say be prepare to be drool . .
Duck Breast with Cucumber and sweetens paste, in Steam Piggy Mask Bun. This is just so cute, with the pig character on the mask bun that capture all of our attention or would say the star for the moment? 😀
Duck breast was prepare to perfection as the meat is chewy, mild in taste yet the layer of fats from skin pair with it very well. As we were saying, is 2 pieces enough for us? :p
Next we were greeted with Disney Dim Sum Platter
“Swan” Vegetarian Toro Puff that they make it creative by using beansprout to make the head of the swan. Interesting.
Steamed Mushroom and Vegetable dining
Steamed Vegetable Dumpling
Braised Seafood Soup with Mickey’s shape Pumpkinn
This seafood soup certainly make our day a great start with its excellent ingredient they have in it and I also believe they do cook some of the soup base first before cooking along the whole portion. Sweet in seafood taste, yet smooth texture of crab and prawns detected and if you do go , this is one of a highly recommended dish! Just do not add vinegar, it will spoil the freshness and taste of the whole soup.
Wok-Fried Shrimps and Disney Rot Vegetabe mix fm
Fried-Rice with Tasmanian Crabmeat stuff in whole Crab Shell
I have never seen rice being serve like that, and its a unique way to present food in this food presentation. Gold crab that the shell can be open . .kekeke ..
Rice fried to fragrant with egg which Hong Kong is famous for bake with cheeze on top and fresh crab was added in . .
Its hard not to camwhore with this cute little gold crab.
BabyVon also want to shot along .. kekek
“Duffy” steamed Red BeaN Purree Bun and Double Boiled whole Chinese Pear tapped with old mandarin.
Double boil chinese pear will be one of the unique desert I have come accross so far, did not know that pear can be double boil. The filling is soft and its like the add on something like ginseng root and I love the juice of it. Some did not like it because of the taste and I find it nice cuz its something new to me.
“Duffy” steamed Red BeaN Purree Bun too cute to be eaten. . .with the bun is soft and read bean purree had been mix well.
Cannot deny that this restaurant serve very good food and if you do visit or stay in here, do visit this restaurant as its worth trying.
Then we are ready to go into Disneyland as this are our entrance ticket.
If you are staying in this hotel then you get yourself to enjoy their huge souvenir shop, Kingdom Gifts for last minute shopping if you have miss out anything while you are in Disneyland. This will be the last big place you can get without paying any entrance fee. They have huge range of character for you to get.
Our next meal is our breakfast on the very next day. As we head back to the hotel again and I am quite surprise on what I have discover next to the buffet spread right below the hotel lobby.
This cute fun place is called The Little Princess that a room makeover for your kids. Parents gonna enjoy this and their kids will love them the most.
A little room with photography session that they will turn your cute kids even more cuter with all the costume. A few backdrop for you to choose.
Another place you must dine in when you stay in this hotel is their buffet breakfast at Enchanted Garden. One of the good reason that why you must dine in this breakfast buffet is that they have special guest appearence during the whole session of buffet which is, all of us are going to be greet by some Disney Character. Who? Find out at the end of my post .. 😀
The name of itself already make us looking forward to move into the restaurant as they have 2 sessions in this area and it is highly advise to book your slots as its usually fully book. They have first session from 7.30am – 9am, and 9.00 am to 11.30am.
Then they have the marble slab with mickey logo on fountain of water flowing ..
I love the whole ambiance of the area as they decorated it like a big indoor garden dining area .. .
Even on its outdoor, I wish to sit here as that morning it was pretty cold and windy just as I like but not many people love that kind of weather so opted to be seated in . . .
They have great range of selection for your breakfast and I believe before you enter theme park and you have a very heavy breakfast, could last you till end of the day . .:p It doesnt work on me tho . .
I always enjoy my heavy breakfast buffet with western style, toast bread, yogurt, fruits and sunny side up . .Cereal with milk is the way how I get my day kick start off ..
This is what I mean with special appearance of Disney Character that will be rooming around the restaurant for you to take pictures with them. One of the advantage is that you cut alot of long queue in the Disneyland whereby we can take it here fast and quick yet can chase after them for picture opportunity like other kids. . :p
All set, satisfied and ready to play all day long in Disneyland. .
Let it all begin as the morning begins with a chill weather of 18 celcious which is just perfect for jeans and t-shirt. . 😀 all walking so fast as cant wait to put our feet in it.
