Good Daipaidong 大排档 Dinner @ Keung Kee Chicken Porridge 强记鸡粥 on 2Jun2015

steamed razor clams in garlic & tanhoon

steamed razor clams in garlic & tanhoon – HK$95

after very late tea cum lunch at timhowan at 4.45pm, we were quite full.

i was considering trying out a daipaidong near royal park called chan kun kee 陈根记except it is really not that near, about 1.6km & 20mins walk. sis was not keen to walk in the dark through shatin park, so we decided to go back to keung kee chicken porridge 强记鸡粥,my usual daipaidong 大排档 introduced by a good friend jeanette of bespoke travellers.

keung kee is at tai wai, just 1 stop from shatin. we reached there about 9pm on 2.6.2015.

haven’t research on the history yet, but their sign says 正牌沙田鸡粥, but is located at tai wai. maybe originally from shatin.

the small razor clams cannot match with large ones we have in singapore. & somehow the steaming is just slightly over. it appears to be same with scallops we had the next day.

it was a good enough dish, especially we had 13 razor clams for just HK$95.

roast pigeon HK$70

sis wanted to try their signature dish here, the roast pigeon. the skin was very crispy & great aroma. but the photo looked better than it tasted.

This is Hong Kong Dimsum @ Timhowan Fuk Wing Street Shamshuipo on 2Jun2015

凤爪排骨饭

this is hk dimsum! very satisfying.

we had a late tunch (tea/lunch), whatever you call it, 4.45pm at timhowan shamshuipo on 2.6.2015. zero queue this time so we just walked in & got a table. 🙂

we arrived 1.55pm at the airport, got past immigration at 2.25pm, bought 2 octopus card & got my 3G data sim, and about 2.45pm we were waiting at the airport bus terminus for A41 to royal park hotel for a 50mins journey. by the time we checked into hotel etc, it was close to 4pm.

we ordered the 凤爪排骨饭. this my favourite, very nice especially with the slight sweet sauce poured over it.

hargao虾铰

the hargao is always nice, fresh, plump prawns, thin smooth skin, but really crystal jade, imperial treasure etc in singapore does them just as well. 🙂

liver fun cheong

somehow fun cheong is always better in singapore. the skin is always very smooth & the sauce matches perfectly.

this liver fun cheong is 1 of the 4 signature dishes, the 4⃣️大天王。my sis wasn’t much into char siew pao (even if it’s crispy skin), and carrot cake is not a special dish for me & i don’t really like 马拉糕。so this best for both of us! 🙂

the steamed chicken feet 豆汁凤爪 is super. i liked this preparation with deep-fried chicken feet skin best. ^^

we also had the osmanthus jelly (i forgot to take photo). 🙂

bill + HK$117 (after adding HK$17 steamed pork ribs)

the price was just HK$100.

that was before we decided to order an extra HK$17 steamed pork ribs, as it went perfectly well with the rice. this one of the good standard steamed pork ribs.

so total was like S$20.50 for 2pax.

really shiok. 진짜맛있!^^
