we were checkin out at 1pm on 6.6.2015. that was the latest royal park hotel allowed. after that it was HK$110/hr. we planned to take A41 to airport round about 5pm so had some time to kill. i had earlier checked out shing kee noodles on internet. it sounded like an interesting place & had like 100% good reviews. it is quite a go to place for hotpot dinners in the evening but for lunch there are noodles & also set lunches with fish & minced pork dishes.
we had dimsum at taoheung pier 88 稻香超級漁港 in mong kok earlier so was not particularly hungry. still, not sure how far was shing kee noodles so might as well start walking. good thing about hong kong is that many buildings are connected by covered walkways. good when raining of course but even for the very hot sun. ^^ just like my adventure thrill (trail) to富记大排档 tai wai, i followed the google map. we walked over the overhead bridge linkway to lek yuen estate.
parknshop superstore was at the right of the entrance to the overhead bridge.
looking down from the covered walkway, i saw a block. we later walked further & asked around before finding the restaurant shing kee noodles at the basement of the block. 🙂
the place was quite chic really, like a cool cafe place in singapore like carpenters & cook, or like aeiou.
haha, it’s a mental switch, can’t really associate it with a beef brisket or hotpot restaurant. 🙂
unfortunately for us, there were 4 rice sets with different fish including a veg & soup for HK$37, but all were sold out (it was about 2pm). we were not planning to have beef brisket noodles & the other rice sets were all steamed minced pork蒸肉饼 so we decided to bail out.
we returned to tak hing 德兴粥面店, which we past on the way to shing kee noodles.
the braises including braised goose were only served in the evening from 5pm.
we had to settle for the congee. i had the chicken innards congee 鸡杂粥. it was so good! congee was very sweet & great. & the chicken innards were great too.
sis had a 艇仔粥. did not take photo, but it was very good too. & both were HK$24!^^
after 德兴粥面店, we walked back to newtown plaza adjacent to royal park hotel.
we walked round 一田 yata supermart. there was a promo – dried oysters HK$168:斤 (600g)= S$50/kg. the promo price was same as those i saw at the provision shop on the way to shing kee noodle.
also saw a raw turbot for HK$118 at supermarket. we had a steamed turbot last evening from 富记大排档tai wai for just HK$98! ^^ this hong kong trip was immensely enjoyable & successful as we got to see cheung chau island (including the very beautiful shorelines from the mini great wall) and lamma island, and the 10,000 buddha monastery.we had 4 dimsum lunches, and lots of exciting daipaidong food at newfound places. & it didn’t rain. about the only negative point was the scorching sun.
