Quite a long while back I got to know about Tim Ho Wan, the world’s cheapest Michelin starred restaurant. It’s a dim sum place that offers quality food made with premium ingredients at an affordable price (although it’s not so affordable for me!). I’ve had this place on my to-eat list since then. I missed out on it when I visited Hong Kong 7 years ago. So this time in my 3rd visit to Hong Kong, I make sure to grab a bite at Tim Ho Wan. I planned to dine at their original shop, however, I found out the original shop at Kwong Wa Street is no longer operating. Gah! So sad. I waited too long.
Our day 3 breakfast in Hong Kong was at Australia Dairy Company. I’ve always been curious about their scrambled eggs which I heard and read so much about. It’s only my third visit to Hong Kong that I finally able to give this place a try. Besides their famous scrambled eggs, they’re also known for rude and fast service (keep your cool and must order fast-fast weh!). Well, that’s what I read and jotted down in my itinerary. I’ve encountered some rude services before, so how rude can they be? Read on baby.
We went to Shanghai Street on day 3 to buy some kitchenware and bakeware. After concluding our Shanghai Street shopping, we stopped by Yee Shun Milk Company for a break. I always pay Yee Shun a visit whenever I come to Hong Kong. It’s a must. Even now while writing this post, I’m craving for it.
On the morning of day 2 in Hong Kong, we visited Victoria Peak Garden at Victoria Peak. The hike up needs lots of stamina and I was spent at halfway point… OK quarter of the way. Satisfied? 😛 By the time we arrived back in Central, it was noon. We choose to have a fancy lunch at Kam’s Roast Goose, which has been awarded 1 Michelin star for 4 years in a row (2015-2018). I’ve dined at Bib Gourmand restaurants (also awarded by Michelin) in Japan and Hong Kong recently, but not Michelin star restaurant. This is my first time dining at a Michelin star restaurant. And I can only afford the 1 star.
When we arrived at about 12.40pm, I saw many people hanging out right outside the entrance plus a long queue snaking away to the left. I proceed to register our group of two and were given a queue number. The lady that mans the queue order shouts loudly and rudely when calling the queue numbers. I guess that’s the reason she was given the job plus it’s tough controlling throngs of customers but still… it spoils the mood.
One of the things I miss about Hong Kong is their tong sui. It’s not that we don’t have it here in Malaysia. There’s one delicious tong sui stall in my town. It’s just that there are more variety and more tong sui shops in Hong Kong, plus their opening hours are longer. I have my eyes on a tong sui shop in Jordan, but because we were pressed for time, we decided to simply find one near our Airbnb on day 2.
The shop we visited is called Mum’ Dessert Shop 小妹甜品 (The Chinese and English names didn’t match!). Besides desserts, they also offer lunch and dinner menu such as noodles and rice. We were there early (dinner time), so most customers were having dinner except us. Hehe We didn’t eat dinner because we were still full from our lunch at a 1 Michelin star restaurant earlier today.
After dinner at Mak Man Kee Noodle Shop, we decided to stop by Lee Keung Kee North Point Egg Waffles since it’s just 6 mins walk away. I read online that Lee Keung Kee North Point has the best egg waffles, and that’s why I choose it. I have eaten egg waffles before in my past Hong Kong trip and also in Malaysia.
