[HK: Central] Sing Heung Yuen Tomato Noodles

TOMOTA(1)

there aren’t many dai-pai-dong’s left in Hong Kong but Sing Heung Yuen is actually one of the very few that still exists until today! so what is a daipaidong? it literally means big board stall. but it really mean open air stalls where you can sit by the road side and dine like an old school local.

[HK: CausewayBay] Atum. a Desserant.

QUALITY GOODS copy

so what is a desserant? well, it’s exactly like the name! a restaurant that only serves desserts to fill your belly! I have always wanted to try having high-tea in one of HK’s many upper class restaurants, but little did I know.. it costs at least 200HKD per person just to have some scones, cakes and tea. super expensive especially for a poor student like myself. but since it was new years, my boyfriend wanted to let me try at least ONCE! (thank you boyfriend ^^) so we decided to head to the Avant-garde style Atum; where art becomes edible. or edibles become art? Continue reading “[HK: CausewayBay] Atum. a Desserant.”

[HK: Central] the amazing milk tea!

during my one week visit to HK, I think I came here almost everyday. it was my absolute favourite place! not only was the skyline amazing, there are a lot of yummy stuff around like Mak’s Noodles and Kau Kee! further, Lan Kwai Fong is just around the corner heheheheheh. well one reason for coming here often’s actually because I like to take the ferry and the ferry takes me here all the time hahaha.

제가 제일 좋아하는 센트랄을 소개하겠습니다! 홍콩에 있는 동안 거의 매일 왔고요 여기 먹는 것과 골목들이 너무나 이뻐서 자주 오게 되었다. 그리고 스타페리를 이용한다면 여기에 많이 오게 될것 입니다~.

[HK: Jordan] Australian Dairy Co.

so they say that if you visit HK you need to go to this place called Australia Dairy Co. for their scrambled egg sandwich. and I did.

not only was looking for that place difficult, I reached at 8am and…

this was what I saw. some super duper long queue! if I wasn’t there with a HK friend, I guess I would’ve lined up like the rest of the crowd. Continue reading “[HK: Jordan] Australian Dairy Co.”

[HK: Central] Mak’s Noodle

so I am finally back from HK and my long 3 weeks holiday around Malaysia and HK. I hope everyone missed me! =3. anyways, in HK there’s this wontonmee place that I fell in love with. it was so good I went back the very next day! and it seems like I wasn’t the only one because I saw the same angmoh who wore a suit the next day too! its service was better than the normal.. well I don’t want to say rude but.. not so polite service and their noodles live up to their name.

it’s called Mak’s Noodle (or in Cantonese, Mak Ngan Kee) and it has several branches but the one I went to was in Central. if you key it in on google maps it’ll pop out instantly! Continue reading “[HK: Central] Mak’s Noodle”

[Seoul: Sinsa] Dimsum at Goldfish (CLOSED)

So I was talking to a friend who was missing some Dimsum in Seoul. I’ve never really thought about introducing Chinese food to foreigners because well.. most of my readers are travelers, so I bet most travelers would prefer to eat some Korean or Korean fusion food. or just something special. but this post here, is to all of you who live in Korea and is sick of Korean food.

apparently this place serves the best Dim Sum in the whole of Korea. and I wouldn’t even deny it because their “har gao” was simply the best I’ve ever had. even better than the ones I’ve had in HK and Malaysia (maybe because I’ve not eaten really nice ones before) but the others were good, but not like superb.

but I’m still laughing over its name, Goldfish HAHAHHA. I mean, in Cantonese Goldfish man = Pedobear/Pedophile. so…

you’ve got to reserve a spot if you’re not coming early since it is a really popular place. and I heard, it’s especially popular for “sogaeting” if you don’t already know what it is, it’s a form of blind date. where your friends set you up instead of getting a date from some agency. it has a very nice ambiance. really liked how it was furnished.

Spiciest Taiwan Sausage : CHALLENGE ACCEPTED.

it’s quite known that I can take spicy stuff and probably the only thing I would be proud of myself at.

so as usual I was bragging about my ability on eating spicy food when my friend raised a brow and said “YOU’LL NOT BE ABLE TO TAKE THAT TAIWAN SAUSAGE NEAR MY HOUSE”.

we made a bet that if I can finish everything without drinking any water (to make it more difficult, I cannot take even a sip of water for 10 minutes after completing it). he told me how bad it was and that usually a normal person would finish 2 glasses of water after two bites and that he literally cried the first time he had it. I was so looking forward to it and I decided to film my progress to see if I would cry, sweat, choke or anything since it’s so spicy.
