we had a lesiurely breakfast at fu seng 富城火鍋海鮮酒家 at playing field road near our hotel which lasted till almost 11am on 13.1.2016. ^^

one friend was joking the time was just right for another at one dimsum 一点心(we had earlier wanted to try one dimsum but it only open at 11am).

so after breakfast we got to central, walked over to central ferry pier no. 4 & took the ferry to yung shue wan pier 榕树湾码头 on lamma island南丫岛.

we decided to relax & did not want to take the 2hr hike to sukkuwan today. so we walked just a little further to the part of the coast where we had a good view of the lamma power station南丫岛发电厂.

Shing Kee Noodles, Lek Yuen Estate, Shatin & Congee Lunch at Tak Hin德兴粥面on 6Jun2015

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.

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 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.

turbot HK$118 at supermarket

turbot HK$118 at supermarket

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.
