Craving for some yummy Hong Kong Dim Sum, and staying near Tsim Sha Tsui? Why not head down to Very Good Seafood Restaurant. This restaurant is one of the places I always go to satisfy my dim sum craving when I am in Hong Kong (it was introduced by our Hong Kong friend years ago).
This G.O.D x Starbucks Café has been around, since 2009. The world’s first Starbucks Café that incorporated a “Bing Sutt” Corner is always crowded with tourists and locals to check out this interesting collaboration since it operates. And subsequently, a collaboration on Hong Kong Movie theme at Sai Yee Street was opened a few years later.
One of the top 10 must eat street food in Hong Kong, Egg Puff or Egg Waffle. This local street food could be found anywhere on the busy street in Hong Kong, aside from the famous Lee Keung Kee North Point Egg Waffles that is recommended in the Michelin street food guide, there are other stalls in town that should not be missed too.
After having a walk at Peng Chau, it is time for a meal at the local restaurant. I’ve found this local café, Kee Sum Café, that was well-known among the locals. Their review is above average too, especially the shrimp toast that was introduced. It is a common food, that was served in Dim Sum restaurants as an appetizer or snack. I am curious about how it would taste like and why people would want to patronize this café purely for the shrimp toast.
Hong Kong is not only about dim sum and dessert. There is other delicious and interesting food to try out and one of it would be 打邊爐 in “Cantonese”, which means steamboat/ hot pot. A must go to place if I am in Hong Kong for dinner, regardless it is winter or summer. Giant Seafood Hot Pot Seafood restaurant is introduced by my Hong Kong friend and told me that is one of the famous hot pot restaurants now.
This is my first time staying near Tai Kok Tsui Area and didn’t really expect much there. But I am wrong! This place has good food and a great place to try some of the simple local delicacies. There are quite a few good restaurants nearby which we saw have lots of people queuing outside to wait for seats. However, due to the time constraint, we could only try out 2 restaurants there.
Travelers who have been to Shilin Night market will know that it is a huge place for delicious street food and lots of things to see, buy and play.
There are so many food to try and what would be the one that worth queuing and waiting? Choices from food that are not widely accepted by tourists, and some of the hidden food that you might miss. These are stalls that I always go to when I am in Taipei and will discovered some new found favorite in subsequent visits.
A hidden gem found in the alley near the busy Tong Hua Street. Not sure if you all know about this place? It is well known among the fans of Taiwanese band, Mayday. This store is opened by one of the members, Stone with his 2 other friends who are musicians.
It is a music store to be exact, however, they have a little cafe area for coffee lovers. As I am not a musician nor have any knowledge of musical instruments, I will not cover about that section. Therefore, this post will focus on the café.
I have to admit that I am a crazy fangirl for Rilakkuma and love it so much that I will always buy its stuff and collect them. It is always on my to-do list to visit the café in Japan, however, they only do pop-up store for Rilakkuma café, which means, they will be in certain parts of Japan for a period of time and move on to another location.
When the news of Rilakkuma café was opened in Taiwan, I have been planning to visit the cafe to have a cup of coffee and meal there. Without any hesitation this time, I kept a day free in my itinerary and made my reservation online.
We tried the Wu Lao Guo during our previous visit to Taiwan. This time round, our Taiwanese friend introduced this famous hot pot restaurant, Top one pot, in Taiwan. This is ranked top 3, within 2 years of its operation. Currently, its review from the local was excellent and some even said that it is better than Wu Lao Guo. However, it is up to the individual preference and for service wise, after serving the customers, the service staffs at Top One Pot are not required to bow 90 degree, unlike Ding Wang or Wu Lao Guo whereby this action might cause some customer to feel uneasy.
