​義順牛奶公司 Yee Shun Milk Company @Causeway Bay, Hong Kong

2016-12-12 15.10.16After our hearty lunch, we strolled to 銅鑼灣 Causeway Bay, and found ​義順牛奶公司 Yee Shun Milk Company… Perfect timing for a break 🙂

It was mandatory to order an item each, so we ended up with:

  • 馳名雙皮燉奶 Double-layer Steamed Milk (HKD$32): It was such a hot day today, so we opted for the cold version. Smooth, rich and not overly sweet, it was a lovely dessert on a hot day!
  • 雞蛋三文治 Egg Sandwich (HKD$20): This was pretty normal, with the egg not too dry, and strangely, there was a slight hint of peanut butter sauce…

Café Corridor @Causeway Bay, Hong Kong

Very sad latte art

Very sad latte art

Our last stop today was to visit Café Corridor!

We were not too hopeful initially, as it was a rather small place, and during our previous visit, it was packed to the brim! Today, we got lucky, and at around 9:30pm, it was less than half full!

Hubby ordered a Flat White (HKD 38), while I settled for a fresh Grapefruit Juice (HKD 45). Note that coffee is only served hot here, and there is a minimum of one drink per person.

The waitress who brought us the drinks accidentally spilled a little of the coffee, making the already sad-looking latte art look even more sad… The coffee was just alright, and not really aromatic. I could taste the freshness of my grapefruit juice though! Happy that they didn’t add additional sugar syrup 🙂

羅麥記 Law Mark Kee @Hysan Place, Hong Kong

Q-No 100

Q-No 100

Since we had an ultra disappointing dinner, we decided to check out the other restaurants and discover this super long queue at 羅麥記 Law Mark Kee. Got queue means cannot be that bad right? So we got ourselves a queue number and begun our 30 minute wait for a seat.

羅麥記 Law Mark Kee is an upscale Cha Chan Teng 茶餐廳 and has quite a few outlets at various shopping malls, and the specialty is… 怀旧 retro… Haha… The walls are decorated with old school posters, and there are plenty of old school TVs, radios, standing fans, telephones, soft drink carts, sofas lying around the corners of the restaurant to bring you back to the 70s and 80s.

And then we saw a few people with Groupon deals, so we were hoping that this was not the only reason for the crowd 😮

何洪記 Ho Hung Kee @Hysan Place, Hong Kong

Wanton Mee and Dumpling Soup

Wanton Mee and Dumpling Soup

This one Michelin Star wanton restaurant 雲吞麺 has been on our list for a while, but we never quite made it here during our last couple of trips. This time, we made it here for dinner!

At 6pm on a Saturday evening, it was quite crowded but still had some empty seats, and we were seated immediately 🙂

The environment was rather posh, and so the prices were rather upscale as well, with some abalone porridge going for HKD 300+! The dim sum prices were not too cheap either. Hence, we decided to stick to the basics and ordered a large Wanton Soup with Noodles (HKD 56+) and Shrimp Dumpling Soup (HKD 58+). Tea was HKD 3+ per person, with additional 10% service charge imposed.

Our food came quickly, and we were a bit surprised at the size of the bowl… Rather tiny? Gotta say that the wantons were quite flavourful and delicious, but the shrimp dumplings were quite bland, despite all the extra ingredients 😦 The soup was not bad, just a tad too pepperish. The noodles were very disappointing, as it was not at all springy, and it fact, quite tough to bite. The only redeeming point was that the thin noodles did not grow fat after soaking in the soup for a long time.

We could not believe that this was so-called Michelin Star standard!

Anyway, posh did not mean good service as well. The girls at the table next to us found worm when they were close to finishing their plate of vegetables, and when they complained to a waitress, she was like.. “So? Change another plate for you?” We also overheard the manager saying that since they almost finished the food, they had to pay for it. But the girls also did not appear to be those that would pay without a fight, and they were saying that no way they would pay for it! Not too sure who won the battle in the end, but we didn’t hear any quarrels from the payment counter. This was also not a place to linger, for our bowls were cleared very quickly after we were done, giving us a very clear and not-so-subtle hint to leave this place.

For this price, we are definitely not coming back again!

Hong Kong 2014 Day 3

2014-03-08 09.56.21Happy Women’s Day!! Today, we left our rooms much later than planned (because it’s gonna be a long long day!), and headed straight to One Dim Sum 一點心 near the hotel, because we have read good reviews about it (and also because we didn’t had enough of dim sum)!

One Dim Sum is the other One-Star Michelin dim sum place that doesn’t break your wallet (the more famous one is of course Tim Ho Wan 添好運). It opens daily from 11am on weekdays and 10am on weekends. Right from the moment it opens (in fact probably before it opens), a long queue would be formed. Waitresses will start handing out waiting numbers and number of pax on a piece of paper, and the big wait will begin. The restaurant has big glass windows so those waiting can drool on those eating. 🙂
