Continue my very back date post. It was on the 4th day in our travel itinerary, that we have to wake up pretty early to go to Wong Tai Sin. For me, I always go to a trip I slept very little. Go walk around till very late, wake up early and walk again and enjoy my breakfast. So after every 1 got ready so my friend bring us to this shop…

 

This shop were run by this 2 lady, busy serving us that suddenly come with a group of ppl. My friend told me that the ‘Chee Cheong Fun’ very nice and also the ‘Siew Mai’.

I just enjoy eating their ‘Chee Cheong Fun add with Siew Mai’ here, is quite different from what I had in PG or KL which is they did put peanut, chili, and sweet sauce. HKD12

I after finish the first portion and I enjoy my ‘Siew Mai’, I ordered another one. It sure do have the canteen feel that I ate when I was in primary school. 🙂 HKD7

This is how I enjoyed my food. Pasar Malam style. That’s y standing nearby the drain. So when the sauce drip will go in there not on the floor which makes it geli!

I just do not know where am I, so the easiest point for me is just take the picture. 😀
There is a 7-11 next to it.

After a quick breakfast, we faster faster head to Wong Tai Sin, but glad that it was on Sunday morning, so the crowd wouldn’t be that much.

This is the only day that I have taken the train so empty as it was early morning and the best part is, you have to zoom your eyes very far till only you get to see the end part of it and I wasn’t standing on the other end, behind me there are still like 3-4 more compartments. Normally, the train is sardin pack with ppl.

Surely this train is much faster and bigger compare to our very own local Putra LRT or KTM Komuter.

Imagine, our Putra LRT x10 sardine pack like every morning rushing hour.

After short ride and exchanges of stations we had reach Wong Tai Sin station.

This is the exit that lead to the entrance of the temple.
We took a lot of pictures from the very eating spree till here and already took more than 100++ pictures already. Sot liau!

The main entrance that lead to the temple.

What my friend told us that, the temple really very ‘lenggg’ as what you wish for will come true. This is more real when during Chinese New Year everyone is trying to be the first and you have to squeeze through and cramp with the ppl as if you are the very first person to put in the joss stick what you had wish for is more ‘lenggg’.
It will be once in a blue moon I go for Tiew Cheam or shaking a holy stick which you were be given a cylinder that fills with a lot of sticks then you knell and start to tell the god what you wish for and look for a guidance. Then a stick will fall down and you have to go to a counter to take what it meant. There are good luck and bad luck.
For the very first time, when I Tiew Cheam, it happened very fast, just within a minute a stick fell.
more pics of the temple which I didnt capture : Wong Tai Sin Temple

So I remembered the stick number and went to claim what it meant, too bad it was in Chinese and have to locate a stall to help me to translate which is located behind this stalls.

The guy in that stall doesn’t look genuine as before me, there is a very young pretty lady and that guy told her that, ohh..your luck this year no good, then you have to do this and that and will perform a small ritual for you on the spot. Then it took place and it just took around 5 minutes for the whole process. When I saw the lady what she paid to that guy, I got shock. What the hell…this short thing cost HKD500? Wah lau eh..the earnings in here is even better than Doctors.

Then next, it was me and my friends turn, so I decided to let her go first as always ladies first. Surprisingly, what the guy said to the lady is nearly the same version as spoken to my friend. Then asking her would she want to perform the ritual or not. Of course we weren’t very superstitious, DON WANT Lah!!!! (HKD500…= RM250) cuz we were just playing around see how this kind of thing and ppl want to tell us. Then said that what she got in the paper is no good this and that

Next it was my turn, as the guys face had turn very unsatisfactory as knowing us are not ‘WATER FISH’ (people that are easy to believe on what the other person say or easy to be con). What he told me is the same as what he told my fried. WTF!!!! And we were very piss off… as my friend was behind me to help me to listen what he wanted to say cuz I’m not really good in Cantonese and for a translation in that paper cost HKD20. Totally not worth it and told the rest of my friend to try out other stalls. Wouldn’t careless on it lahh..just that dislike that guys attitude on trying to CON us.

What you seen in the pic is exactly converts on the back ally how many fortune teller are there.. The rest what my friend got is their feedback from it is more genuine.

As I always watch Hong Kong series that this ‘fan’ thingy is very good for luck as it spins, your bad luck away and bring in good luck. . . . So kaypo a bit and grab 2.
Both cost me HKD60 after a great bargain from my friend.

Next itinerary on the list is go back change and bath, head to Hong Kong most expensive shopping area. Central and dinner at one of the best Japanese restaurant which my friend had arranged.

Thought of eating Dim Sum for the past few days, then did a research on where to eat. Then finally book one of the restaurant at Renaissance Hotel for its buffet dim sum which quite a number of good review on that. Then suddenly 2 days b4 the eating spree my friend called me up got something cheaper ah..
Then again go do some research and come across this eat all you can buffet which is at Li Jin Restaurant at Pavilion.
When we reach there around 11.15 am there were quite alot ppl waiting outside. Then I went to go ask the lady for the reservation name and she said I have to wait till 11.30 am to be serve. Then never care and just stand outside and chat with my friends.

Why this restaurant was because they give such a promo which under my friends budget RM20.80++ for eat all you can which most of them agreed and good thing was included weekends. Went to this eating spree with 10 ppl. They have 2 session for this which is the first batch is 10.30 am – 12.30 am and 12.30 am – 2.30 pm. We thought of going for the 2nd session as Brunch. 😀

While on the way walking in, they have the open concept of the open kitchen and as always the way steaming the tim sum always look tempting. The taste of it NO IDEA.

As I read a few food blogger, they mention that the roast duck here is highly recommended but never find a review on the tim sum. Will go hunt for its duck next visit~

They have quite a classy interior from inside out. Sure a pretty nice place to dine for tim sum with such a pricing.

While we were seated and this is the first cart that reach our place. We were very hungry as previous nite drank too much and today a bit hang over.. so just hantam what we can. So told the lady, everything 2 in our table.

Including this cart.
After took all the tim sum we need and me as always hungry as ever and go look around what I can curi. So found this area, with fried noodle and fried rice.
The ‘Fried Noodle’, is nice with the ‘wok’ taste is there and wasnt being too salty. A good dish to start off with
The ‘Fried Rice’ which is feel it taste much better than the noodle, as it is still warm compare to the noodle, and the best part is they are being pretty generous that alot of chinese sausage in there which makes the taste alot better.
Maybe I was still abit hang hang dei, and what ever I eat also nice.
Then the next area spotted next to it was ‘Century Porridge’ on the right, which I feel that the chuk is pretty dry up by putting into the slow cooker too long. Its a bit sticky whereby you throw it on the fly that fly over can even stick on the wall.
Next to it is theFu Chuk didnt manage to eat that cuz thought of leaving that for the last dish and ended up forgot to take.
This was the appetiser in front of the table. The very first infront of the pic I do not know what is that called but it taste sour and cold. Never really like it. The one of the right is call Leng Ngau(hokkien)suddenly forgot what its called in english. Taste not bad. Acceptable for me, which is cold, a bit salty and crunchy to its freshnesss and the one of the top left also do not know call what is it as what I know is to put all this in my mouth and taste it. It is cold dish also, a bit spicy and sour. Not my cup of tea.
So start my eating spree with this Siew Mai’ which is warm in the basket and yit lat lat.. so throw one into my mouth and feel like the siew mai is just out from the fridge and went into stim. The compactness is there but just taste normal.
Next is the Fung Chau aka Chicken Leg’ which I feel it taste weird. The skin taste like eating raw of its skin and a bit sticky too. After eating this plate,me and my friends never wanted for 2nd one.
Next is the Har Gau which is not really big in size. The prawn is not really big and the meat in there is okay and the skin is not too thick. Nothing taste special about this like some of other normal kopitiam style you can get.
Follow by my favourite ‘Char Siew Pau that will never miss in my tim sum eating spree. But dissapointedly, the feeling that it give me was the pau feels like not properly stim which the other side is hot and the skin is peeling and the other side is like just ngam ngam. The taste of it, don really like the sauce and the mince meet in there not small enough.
From top left to right:

Fish Ball
: Not a fan of that but just don taste nice.

Pai
Kuat
: Just taste so so, as its quite oily and the fats in the meat is too much.
The one on the bottom left taste nice, the skin is a bit crispy and the filling in there mix with chili sauce just ngam ngam nice to put into mouth
Siew Mai: which is another version from the up one, and thinks that this 1 taste much better. The compactness of the meat is there, and the feeling of eating char siew although not the best but no comment.
When the cart came by with this ‘Hong Kong Chee Cheong Fun’ then also ask for 2 each. Compare this 2, the prawn 1 taste much nicer compare to the char siew. The char siew the piece of meat is there and the taste is just not there. Feels like missing something in it and we cant really get what it lacked off. For the prawns, it taste better as the taste had mix in with the cheong fun. Eating with the chili given is an extra.

Loh
Pak Kou
: one of the dish which I feel its nice there, its soft, with a bit of peanut fragrance and ngam ngam pan fried it.
the one on the top right, taste so so only, as fried to perfection but I feel like eating more flour than eating the base.
ThePopiah fried too long and its too crispy which makes it a bit hard to bite. Nothing special.
The Crabstick I would called it. Taste not bad, fried to perfection and the filling in there carries the tatse of the crab. Eat with mayo would be nice.
The best part of all I have been waiting and we ate till around 2.30 already. As we chatted the whole way through more than eating. Of course the deserts. The one of the top left do not know what is nice but one of the girl that serve our table, she keeps coming back happily to serve us and told me that since I like to eat desert as I keep asking her, then she bring me this.
Seriously, it taste very very very nice, inside is filled with some duck salty egg, abit of jagung taste, its soft on the outside and hot on the inside and its my recommendation for this dish over here.
As I read the review of the ‘Egg Tart’ not to be miss, which I feel it taste okay as the crust is crispy, the middle cream of it is to sweet and nice. The filling in it is just ngam ngam never too much nor too little.

The last one, taste pretty good also as it is filled with a bit kaya and ended up I wanted to request for more they told me its already finish and pass me the last 1 pack of it. SO DOWN. At the end of the meal onli get to know eat nice nice food.

After eating everything and ready to go surely we ask for our bill. The bills come out to a total of RM29 per pax which we were like har..y so ex and saw in the menu, like HK ppl doing business, added up the 3 cold dish in front of us cost RM5 each, then the towel, the tea and some other little bits and piece. Found it quite expensive for around RM29 each with the food quality and rather add some extra money to go Renaissance and enjoy the food but never try never know. Wont be considering going back at the moment.

Second day of our trip. As we wake up early and gather ready to go and hunt for food. Previously at Mong Kok I did spot a shop there already as it was quite packed with people but I think every shop also was packed with ppl that night.

While we reached LangHam Place to go for shopping and we found out that we were too early. Most of the shop had not open yet so we went to look for breakfast. Ask around for the stall on the street where will he recommend us to eat and he ask us walk walk walk further down bout 2 blocks away and turn right.

So ended up in Mong Kok again for the first night when we came out from the subway tunnel. Then I instantly point to the shoop that I spotted before and ask every 1 go in and eat.

I don know how to read chinese so what the heck. Just take pictures and post it up. The funny thing in the restaurant is always ‘A Chan’, ‘B Chan’, ‘C Chan’ means like set A or B or C. Really a Hong kong tea house. Kekekek.
As for me, I only know how to see and point. A half banana like me which know how to speak but do not know how to read, so the only thing to rely on during order food of course is the Pictures. If the pictures quality is good and the food take tempting and come out SUCKS also no choice.
If I am not mistaken this is ‘Set G’ HKD 20 which is 1 ‘Milk Tea’ and ‘Polo Bun’. First thing first. I must say that the milk tea here is far much nicer that any of the restaurant in Malaysia can offer. 10x better than Kim Gary or watever Hong kong restaurant we have. The thickness of the tea and the milk taste is just there. A satisfying drink to start off with.
and of course my very favourite and not to be miss during in Hong Kong which is of course the ‘Polo Pau‘. The top, is perfectly backed and the crust is sweet, the bun is soft and the butter is melting to suits the taste of it. One bite will just take your breath away. This might not be the best polo bauz in the area but to me, it is satisfying though which I had 2.
This is what I order besides the Set G. The name is ‘Jar Jiang Mian if not mistaken, and the taste to me till today is still fresh in my mind and craving for more of it. The best thing is the noodle of course, it is curley curley and just don know how to tell why the wantan noodle in Hong Kong is much better than in Malaysia. The meat is soft, the sauce is sour and abit spicy. When you mix and stir it together, you just want to have more of it. HKD 24
My friend order the Koey Teow Soup’ Noting fancy about it. The soup is like plain water, the koey toew is normal. Plain plain like dat also around HKD 24.

Next of course not to be miss in Hong Kong which is a MUST eat food. ‘Wan Tan Noodle’. As I say on the Jar Jiang Mian above the noodle is just so nice and curley curley and you can just bite the strand of it. It is abit solid which makes you want to salivate more of the noodle. The soup base is good, which had the taste of wantan and they are surely not to kiam siap on the WanTan. Inside it, is filled with 2 big prawns and the taste of it, you would just want to ask for more. 3 is not enough, to satisfaction you need another 2 which makes just ngam ngam. HKD 24

The last dish which is thing the look is kinda funny, ‘Macaroni with Ham’. I feel like the soup taste really macaroni and the ham is just ham. Noting much to comment on this as I only try the soup base.
and of course.. all of us are very full and satisfy with our breakfast…Time to Head to SHOPPING!!!!!!!
