a friend bought dinner at new lucky claypot rice at holland drive food centre this evening on 11,3,2016. ^^

my wife & i are low on carbs and generally don’t eat claypot rice. 🙂

new lucky is very near my place, i knew of it for a long time but have not taken it here before.

just last week, the same friend was with me, but we were late & new lucky was closed by 1.20pm, we ended up having coffee at hans & sharing a sandwich.

this time i was there at 5.45pm. my friend was already there & the food had arrived within 10mins of his order.

we shared a S$10 claypot rice for 2 & a S$4 watercress soup with pork soft bones.

the rice was very fragrant, individual grains.

the chicken was very tender, and i liked the pork & liver sausages. there was also the salted fish.

my friend said not to add the dark sauce, and to taste & enjoy the fragrance of the rice.

i did that too. i also added the dark sauce. you see, i enjoyed the fragranc of the dark sauce as well…haha! 🙂

while i enjoyed the rice, it was really a lot of carbs for me. i am thinking i will try this dish myself, with a lot less rice, a lot more chicken. haha!

the soup was good. not the good restaurant standard lie tong kind of good, a good hawker stall food centre soup kind of good.

Fa Yuen Street Market 花园街街市 – Hong Kong’s wet market & cooked food stalls

after an excellent late roast goose & congee lunch at fu kee congee 富记粥品, followed by equally enjoyable dessert at hoe kee dessert 浩记甜品馆, we walked back along fa yuen street 花园街.

& saw the fa yuen street market 花园街街市.

the dry goods stalls & stalls selling braised duck, chicken, pigeon, roast meats & char siew were at one end.

we were quite attracted to the char siew (but later poor experiences made me decide never to take char siew & siew yoke in hong kong) & also the braised meats, but we were mindful that we were going for late dinner afterwards & should not overload ourselves & spoiled the appetite.

a friend wanted to buy pork & liver sausage. there were many stalls selling that, but he did not know the prices nor had confidence in the stalls.

i later brought him to 楼上 at lippo sun plaza level 5 (a dry goods retail chain) where he bought lots of pork & liver sausage 肝肠腊肠.

& in the middle there were the wet market stalls selling live fish & seafood (top photo & above).

on 12.1.2016, we were around looking for dessert shops.

hoe kee dessert 浩记甜品馆 was closed 2 days in the row.

we were not interested in the guilingao龟苓膏like hoitintong 海天堂 etc. we saw that fa yuen street market 花园街街市 had levels 2 & 2 cooked food stalls. thinking they were like singapore hawker/food centres, we happily went up.

but actually their cooked food centre houses daipaitongs 大排档. there were like 6 daipaitongs 大排档 selling the zi char dishes, not a bad idea, just that we were wanting desserts.
