had excellent 4pax dimsum at timhowan at sham shui po, fuk wing street.^^
son arrived HK airport 1/2hr later, and we managed to take airport express & hop onto the free bus transfer & checked in at marco polo hk at harbour city by 2.30pm.
we were at timhowan at sham shui po at 3pm. there was a queue (this was good friday & we waited about 15mins).
we ordered 3 of the 4 signature dishes, namely the crispy char siew buns, the panfried carrot cake, and the liver fun cheong.^^
they were all good. somehow the crispy char siew funs were much better than singapore, very crispy & not so sweet. panfried carrot cake was kind of standard.
both the liver & char siew fun cheong were very good, very smooth & the sauces was just great.
we loved the pork rib chicken feet rice. it was excellent! we had 2 orders to share among 4pax.
we also had the steamed pork ribs & chicken feet separately. they were both very good. the chicken feet was the usual deep-fried ones & very different from the abalones sauce ones we had the next day at lei gardens which cost more & not so nice.
we liked the hamshuigok 咸水饺 too. nice!
& we had 3 orders of har gau. these were very good, same as what we had in crystal jade, imperial treasure & canton paradise in singapore.
we had one later at lei gardens times square & it was quite below par, really what we came to expect in HK.
price came to HK$302 (S$54) for 4pax, higher than the usual S$8 to S$10 here because we ate a lot.^^
it was a great makan first stop for us in HK.
