went to 10,000 buddhas monastery (man fat sze 万佛寺) in the morning.
my hiking shoes have been serving me faithfully for 5-6years. now the left shoe sole has open up. someone that affected my mood. maybe also running out of steam, or just destroyed by the scorching sun the past 2 days at cheung chau & lama islands.
decided not to go far so ended up in mong kok around noon on 5.6.2015.
saw this place 旺角小肥羊 LittleSheep at agyle street. didn’t want to walk around too much so just try our luck.
we ordered 4 dimsum items – 3 were HK$9.80, only the beef fun cheong was HK$12.980.
the first dish we were served, the beef fun cheong was absolutely horrendous!
the skin was tough, and at the end of it we did not find 1 single piece of beef.
the char siew fun cheong i had at taoheung super 88 稻香超级渔港 the next day was just slightly better (meaning very bad too!). all the singapore restaurants like crystal jade, imperial treasures, canton paradise, tunglok etc were all miles better, made me realise that in HK do not order any fun cheong in dimsum restaurants except at timhowan & some other more notable places.
the spicy pig stomach was equally horrendous, maybe more!
totally dry & tough, not quite edible.
we thought we got into a wrong place, luckily there was redemption.
the hum shui kok 盐水铰 was good, nice crispy skin, nice filling, great texture.
& so was the teochew dumplings 潮州粉果!
same nice skin, nice filling, great texture. the chefs from 2 different worlds!
not satisfied we ordered the claypot chicken feet pork rib rice HK$26.80.
unlike timhowan the little metal bowl type this was a larger serving, and it was very good.
both the chicken feet & steamed pork ribs were very good, almost same as treasure lake restaurant 宝湖 at central (chicken feet at the latter was better i think).
but best was the rice! it was so very fragrant!^^
we simply had to order more dishes to go with the super tasty rice.
there was a ma bo 孖宝 which means a twin treasure order 2 dimsum items for HK$24.80.
so we ordered the beef tripes 金钱肚. it was excellent but just wee bit salty, just like the chicken feet here.
the steamed pork ribs though was quite perfect.
we emptied the whole plate onto the rice. so shiok!
lunch was HK$126 for 7 dishes, a bit cheaper than timhowan fuk wing street sham shui po, but less refine, and spoilt by 2 horrendous dish.
