my OPS bro leaving hong kong for shenzhen this morning on 13.9.2017, then onward to guangzhou & then gulao (古劳) his ancestral village. ^^
he was the reason WM & I came for this trip to hong kong on a still hot month like sep. never coming back here on sep! lol!
& today we followed WT & GY to shenzhen & was met by WT’s brother WW.
getting through HK checkpoint & entering China checkpoint was a breeze. in fact we went through electronic gates at China checkpoint, so almost no queue.
the strange thing is that GY, WT’s wife is chinese nationality, & they require a special travel document to enter HK & Macau from China. I am guessing they are trying to prevent chinese flooding HK & Macau, and if these chinese have the means of travelling outside china like to singapore then they are allowed to enter HK & Macau from third countries. so it’s discriminatory but it avoided mass entry of chinese into the 2 territories…whatever!
WW booked hotel for WT & GY at 科学馆metro station, next to his own rented apartment.
while they were checking into hotel, WW arranged for WM & I to have some breakfast at 东贝爱面科学馆outlet. we had a really delicious if heavy pig organs soup.
this place looked like an aircon basement food court (but only 1 shop) & no customers i guess at this hour (10.50am)???
one difference from singapore pig organ soup is it is served with a tossed noodles with braised pork.
i guess a bit like malaysia/JB’s kuay toew kia. 🙂
the noodles absolutely delicious, with the braised pork, tasty & tender perfect texture & very tasty sauce.
the pig organs soup was excellent of course, very tasty & great ingredients.
as good as singapore’s, not so peppery. 🙂
WW ordered i guess something difference for us to try.
it was a minced seafood roll, with a layer of skin, not sure what it was made of, some starch from some crops?
it was pretty nice also.
the best way i can describe it is it is like otah served in restaurants with chunky seafood.
otah not my favourite…maybe otah slightly better than this as it has some spices.
we had some lime drink.
the meal was HK$78 for 2pax, maybe on the high side for the locals, and certainly worth for me…very nice makan.
i will do this again if i come here.
