one dimsum not open till 11am

one dimsum not open till 11am

we were doing good by our standard la… ^^

yesterday we went 2hr hike (slow walk?) at dragon’s back…after that lunch at 鱼宝, then late afternoon dinner at timhowan shamshuipo, then late dinner at fu kee…

day before we went peak circle walk then yat lok roast goose, then go cheung chau island, then dinner at tao heung tsimshatsui.

today we thought we merit a slower pace from our slow pace…

& one dimsum was nearby, & they got 1 michelin star like 2 years after timhowan….so? walk there & give it a try lor…

but one dimsum 一点心 only open at 11am!

Roast Goose 烧鹅 Encore @ Fu Kee Congee Mongkok 富记粥品旺角 on 12Jan2016

roast goose 烧鹅 again!

roast goose 烧鹅 again!

after a satisfying lunch at the accidental find yue bo 鱼宝食馆, we made our way to tsimshatsui to do some “shopping”.

first a friend was told on whatsapp about jenny’s cookies so we thought we would grapped some at the stall at tsimshatsui. how silly of us!

we found jenny bakery at shop 24, GF, mirador mansion 54-64B nathan road alright, but we were directed to the back street where we were told there was a queue & someone giving out numbers.

long queue for jenny's cookies

long queue for jenny’s cookies

we duly did that but the queue was ridiculous, mostly chinese tourists. i whatsapped the same friend with a photo of the queue & quipped that even for her i would not queue for the cookies la…haha! 🙂

+++++++++++++++++++++

anyway after that we went to look for 楼上, found it quite easily by memory at lippo sun plaza level 5. i bought some mushrooms & dried scallops that wife wanted, and a friend bought lots of liver & sausage 肝肠腊肠.

we returned to hotel to rest & chit-chat, & update facebook la.. haha! 🙂

+++++++++++++++++++++

about 9pm on 12.1.2016, we decided to go back to-

fu kee 富记粥品 where we had excellent roast goose & congee on the first night we arrived in hong kong.

also we had missed our attempts over the last 2 nights to have our dessert fix at which is just across the road from  fu kee 富记, so that was an added attraction. 🙂

it was late but the stall was still crowded. they ran out of roast goose. the server took our order of 1/2 goose but came back to say they could only give us 1/4 goose.

still it was a good portion, not enough of course for 6 hungry fellas. 🙂

mixed innards congee及第粥

mixed innards congee及第粥

we again had the mixed innards congee及第粥 .

beef + liver congee

beef + liver congee

& the beef + liver soup.

nice warm homely comfort food. i still think this was my best congee, but then in hong kong, good congee are everywhere.

3-eggs watercress

3-eggs watercress

3-eggs watercress was good. but it’s nothing like the wonderful 3-egg spinach at uncle leong’s.

watercress not spinach…& overall no comparison la…

sliced pork soup

sliced pork soup

the mustrad leaves 芥菜 sliced pork soup was good. i think my friends were getting hooked on 芥菜. 🙂

waxed meat & sausage with kailan 腊味炒芥兰

waxed meat & sausage with kailan 腊味炒芥兰

they recommended a waxed meat & sausage with kailan 腊味炒芥兰. it was good very flavourful!

flavourful glutinous rice糯米饭

flavourful glutinous rice糯米饭

& they literally push the glutinous rice糯米饭 onto our table. it was good so no complaints & it was done good-naturedly. we were given a scoopful to try & before we said anything, a huge portion was piled on our table. haha! when you like it, it is ok! 🙂

we had very good experience at this restaurant. both times we enjoyed our food. this second time we chatted quite a bit with the server & gave her a good tip afterwards. very happy with the food, service & price plus the added convenience of good location & will come back again next visit to hong kong.

Great Late Afternoon Dimsum @ Tim Ho Wan Shamshuipo 添好运on 13Jan2016

timhowan's famous crispy char siew pao

timhowan’s famous crispy char siew pao

we returned from lamma island & rather than went back to hotel we decided to go straight to tim ho wan at shamshuipo at 4.30pm on 13.1.2016. ^^

there was no queue, so everything was perfect.

i was here like 4 times already. a more recent one on 3.4.2015.

for my friends, it was their first. everyone liked the food, and ambience was good. the crowd here was younger & maybe more tourists.

crispy char siew pao here is good as always.

& liver fun cheong

& liver fun cheong

liver fun cheong very smooth, though 1 friend said he did not taste liver (the rest must have gobbled it up!)

mala cake 马拉糕

mala cake 马拉糕

mala cake 马拉糕  good too, not my favoruite. i wouldn’t order myself.

teochew dumplings潮州粉果

my friends liked the teochew dumplings潮州粉果.

siew mai

siew mai

but the one who likes siew mai a lot felt that this one here no match for tao heung mongkok  稻香旺角’s siew mai won 烧卖皇. i have to agree! 🙂

steamed pork ribs

steamed pork ribs

steamed pork ribs i think better than most places. the pork ribs at tao heung mongkok  稻香旺角 had too much fat & also yam.

steamed chicken feet good like other places.

minced pork rice

& we had 2 rice. minced pork on rice &

osmanthus jelly

osmanthus jelly 桂花糕

& the usual osmanthus jelly桂花糕.

a jolly good late afternoon dimsum. we ate a bit less i guess, no less satisfaction, & bill was just HK$273=S$8.50pax.
