on 10.1.2016 the day we arrived, it started to rain in the late evening just when we kena abducted & fed a forgettable dinner at tai yun 泰源.
how can we be so unlucky? the lowest rainfall in the whole year in january & we ran smacked with a north east monsoon blowing over.
the next day we had planned to meet 830am at central to go up to victoria peak太平山, but it was again raining so we had to switch to wet weather program & met at our hotel royal plaza instead.
fortunately for the remaining time, it was fine weather all the way, & we managed our hike at peak circle walk, cheung chau island, dragonback & then a short stroll at lamma island. ^^
best wet weather program = breakfast dimsum at tao heung mongkok 稻香旺角 on 11.1.2016. ^^
hong kong is well connected with covered walkways, so we walked from royal plaza hotel to nathan road mongkok mtr under cover then walked along nathan road to hollywood plaza & to tao heung on level 3. 🙂
there was no queue but still a good crowd at 9.30am.
we liked have a dimsum feast! maybe 25 items or more? forgot count but many items we ordered double.
anyway we ordered mostly from the before 11am specials priced at HK$8 & HK$9.
dimsum was very good standard. 🙂
spicy chives dumplings were good.
not were name of the rolls..not my favourite.
the combination 潮州粉果 teochew dumplings was good, great skin, great tasty ingredients! 🙂
炸两 was perfect. not my favourite fun cheung 粉肠but the 油条were great not like the hard like stone ones in singapore for this dish.
steamed pork ribs were good. lots of yam, less pork.. tim ho wan’s much better!
steamed chicken feet also competent.
fried eggplant was tasty.
not particularly my dish.
i don’t fancy fried fupeikuin腐皮卷, prefer the steamed version. this was good though.
fried crrot cake was good, & came with 2 guotie 锅贴very good too… 🙂
char siew fun cheung叉烧粉肠 was good, very smooth, but maybe not standout. got good ones in singapore these days.
char siew pao was very good.
so nice! so tasty! meat not too sweet, overal excellent. i hardly ever take char siew pao in singapore..lol..this one i took!
congee was just passable.
the pork over rice with braised egg, again one of the HK$9 items…抵食到极 tie sek dor kek….
糯米鸡 lomeigai i think normal pricing so should be like HKS24 or more….it’s good! so hoot ah!
& we had mala cake马拉糕 . this like lots of hong kong people like.
i guess it’s quite tasty ka..but not a “dessert” i need.
ginger cake was good too. seldom see this so had some uniqueness value.
overall the humongous breakfast cost us HK$380 for 6pax=S$12 each.
in hong kong they say “先要好食，然后抵食“ ie cheap is one thing, but must be good first la…same same my idea.^^
great thing was as we left the restaurant, rain had stopped & weather was fine throughout the days.
