Fabulous Egg Tart From 快樂餅店 Happy Cake Shop @ Wan Chai, Hong Kong

Visiting Hong Kong without eating egg tart seems wrong. Don’t you agree? Well, it is for my case because I’m an egg tart lover BECAUSE I love eggs so much! 🥚🥚🥚 I even eat raw eggs smoothie for breakfast nowadays (check out my Insta if you don’t believe me). Anyway, when I was planning this Hong Kong trip, I read about a traditional bakery shop that is nearly 4 decades old in Wan Chai selling Hong Kong styled bread and pastry. Coincidentally, I will be in Wan Chai area (again) on day 4 for some amazing fun later at night, so yay!

Tai Hang

炳記茶檔 Bing Kee @ Tai Hang, Hong Kong

We traveled to Tai Hang for our first ever dai pai dong (cooked-food stalls) experience at Bing Kee on our day 4 lunch in Hong Kong. Although I’ve never dined in one over here, however in Malaysia we have this sort of food stalls establishment and I believe it is so in many Asian countries too. Do note that in Hong Kong, not all street food stalls can be called dai pai dong. A dai pai dong business license is larger than other street vendor’s license. It’s also for this reason that dai pai dong is called dai pai dong literally; dai pai = big license, dong = stall. The charm of any dai pai dongs are their quintessential fast-affordable-yummy food.

添好運 Tim Ho Wan @ Sham Shui Po, Hong Kong

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.

澳洲牛奶公司 Australia Dairy Company @ Jordan, Hong Kong

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.

義順牛奶公司 Yee Shun Milk Company @ Yau Ma Tei, Hong Kong

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.

甘牌燒鵝 Kam’s Roast Goose @ Wan Chai, Hong Kong

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.

Kam's Roast Goose @ Wan Chai, Hong Kong
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.
