after our late afternoon dimsum sojourn at tim ho wan shamshuipo at 4.3pm, we rested & chatted at the hotel & then went for dinner at tao heung pier 88 mongkok 稻香超级鱼港旺角, making sure we were there before 9pm to enjoy the promotion.

it was planned in a way, that our excursions to lamma island today (& for that matter to dragon’s back, peak circle walk & cheung chau island on previous days) need not be rushed & we could have a leisurely breakfast, do the walks/hikes over the lunch period (the cool weather so accommodating) & then dimsum at timhowan at 5pm at a time when there was zero queue….

everything turned out quite as planned, and leisurely, also as planned…haha!

actually we went to hoe kee dessert 浩记甜品馆 for our dessert fix just before dinner on 13.1.2016! ^^

(we liked the desert so much we went back on 11.1.2016 & 12.1.2016 after we had it on 10.1.2016. both days they were closed. so first opportunity on 13.1.2016 we went again).

i guess dessert was a good start for dinner!

the large restaurant was pretty full. we managed to be seated w/o queueing before 9pm.

that was NOT sufficient to qualify for the time promotion, so i lodged our promotion orders first la…

just as well we did not order the HK$68 for a full chicken!

the HK$38 buddha-jum-over-the-wall, another promotion, sold out liao!

the proactive quite nice not pushy server got us interested in the seafood.

we wanted it baked in superior sauce (上汤焗)。 the server recommended to add cheese. i guessed it was not the cheese gratin preparation.

anyhow we gave it a try. lobster was excellent, the cheese noodles made it feel like western pasta. it was done well & nice dish but not my preferred preparation.  baked in superior sauce (上汤焗) would be better.

clam la la soup

clam la la soup

the lobster also came with a free clams lala dish. this was pretty good though not special.

again the guys ordered 2 bottles of blue girl (lam mui) pilsener beer..popular in hong kong.

dinner all in was HK$915 for 5pax = S$34pax…pretty decent la…
