Macau Tsui Yuen Restaurant @ Mong Kok, Hong Kong

For the past 3 visits, I visited Hong Kong with absolutely zero research. Hence, I am absolutely fed-up with the sub par food I tried at Hong Kong. Hence, this time, I came prepared……sorta.

1 particular person helped me a lot on planning my itinerary, which is Northasian, the forum + blog owner of AllAboutHongKong. Just go over her (I think….) forum, and you can ask her for advice, all for free and most importantly, prompt and good advice. Thanks again, Northasian.

It’s a food court in the Mong Kok Cooked Food Market, and finding a place to sit is real hard…..even when ‘dap toi’ aka sharing table with others. 

The first thing 1 should do at Hong Kong is definitely getting the Octopus card. It’s something similar as our Touch n Go card, but far more convenient since many vendors are accepting it. I get 1 each for me and LY for the sake of convenient purpose of KTM rides.

I also straight away reload HKD500 for my octopus card since I heard that many restaurants accept Octopus card for payment. Also, I can use it at 7-11, and best part, by paying just a bit, I can cash back all the leftover amount in the card anytime I want.

For most of the food stalls here, you were need to collect your food yourself. But I was told that they will sent it to me when it was ready. However, the wait is so long (around 20 minutes) that we wonder, is it that I listen wrongly? LY went and asked again, and we are assured that they will sent it to us when it’s done.

It’s usually easy for me to hunt for food since I am using GPS ( Thanks a lot to guys from Malsing and Malfree). Just set it and go.

But it’s totally different in Hong Kong. Without Papago, I am helpless. I did subscribe to the PCCW wireless, where there are over 9000 hotspot in all over Hong Kong. BUT it’s still not convenient at all. The range of wifi is so short, and hence I can’t really use google map with it. 3G is so much a win over wifi.

The Curry Pork in Bread set (咖哩豬柳農夫包) @ HKD48 is well worth all the foot work. The texture of the pork itself is nice and gooding. Besides, the small bowl of curry that were given for you to dip the bread taste nice too. However, it’s sweet based so it’s very different from what we had in Malaysia. 7.8/10

It was noon time and we are walking around quite aimlessly to find where the hell is my target restaurant. There are like a gazillions of shops around, making finding the sign board of anything is just so damned hard.

Both me and LY are hungry, and the burning sun doesn’t help. It was mid-October, but the weather is still hot.

The super crazy famous Gong Cha. We queued up for almost 20 freaking minutes on it!

There are times that we almost gave up for finding where it is, since we are walking around that area for like 20minutes or so, but still couldn’t sure that are we finding at the right place or not.

Luckily, it wasn’t long before I finally saw the Mong Kok Complex word on 1 particular building, which is where the food court – Mong Kok Cooked Food Market located at.

The absolutely unworthy drink. 0.1/10 (It ain’t that bad, but the wait make it so)

After that, we head to the famous Ladies street, which actually reminds me of Petaling street very well. The whole street is full with people around, which makes walking around very hard. Only then, I remember it’s Sunday…..Sigh.

    Anyway, Gong Cha saved my life on several occasions when we were in HK.
