Tasty Congee & Noodle Wantun Shop @ Hong Kong International Airport

After an hour plus on the bus, we reach Hong Kong International Airport, it’s time to really say good bye to Hong Kong. We walked around, and then decided to eat something before we board the plane.

I decided that we just eat at the food court, and we chose 正斗粥麵專家 (Tasty Congee & Noodle Wantun Shop).

After queuing up for some time, order, and wait again, finally we can eat!

Well, the wanton noodle is okay, the char siew taste okay too, overall, just an very average dish. 5.0/10

Four Season Claypot Rice @ Yau Ma Tei, Hong Kong

It was the final night for us in Hong Kong, and I am trying to do some last minute shopping at Harbour City. Too bad, I don’t know why I just don’t have the mood to shop. Hence, we took a cab (I am addicted to taking cab at Hong Kong already), and head straight to Yau Ma Tei.

Walk around and luckily, Arthur Street is a short one and we found it easily. Well, with such queue, it’s not easy to miss eh?

Thanks god, just less than 15 minutes of queuing up, it’s our turn! Dining with 2 is so much easier than coming with a huge group of friends.

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.

Foods around Senado Square @ Macau

After all the hotel visits (without picture….I will try to make this more like a travelling blog instead of food blog soon), here we are, at Senado Square. A place you can’t say you been to Macau if you never visit here.

Thanks god too, after raining for the whole morning, it’s finally stopped at around 2 PM and we can explore around here.

While there are many historical buildings around here, there are many food stalls around too. I just love the bubble milk tea here, and I especially enjoy their smaller than usual bubble. 8.0/10

Steamed Sang Yu @ Billion Sungai Petani

There’s always a hidden gem everywhere, and this small little stall, located just outside 1 of the abandoned shopping mall (Billion) in Sungai Petani, is a true gem.

Ok la, it’s not really abandoned, just that instead that it’s a shopping mall with many retail shops in it, there’s only “The Store” departmental store inside. Most of the time it’s quite empty, since peeps in Sungai Petani will go to Tesco (we got 2 tesco here okay?!) or Giant for grocery, and Central Square if they want more. However, during festive seasons, those that hate crowd will come here since most places will be way way too overcrowded.

Well, guess it’s enough talk of shopping mall. This small stall is those that you won’t bother to give it a second look even if you walk past it. It’s only operate during dinner time, and are run by Chinese from China.

They do served rice, but you should try their porridge when you are here. Although it’s just plain porridge, but the porridge itself is very damned smooth. Just superb if you eat it along with the main dish! 8.0/10

Super Kitchen Chili Pan Mee @ Kuala Lumpur

I am not a fan of Pan Mee in the past, especially the soup based one. Reasons is usually the soup taste is not to my liking, and the noodle is too hard.

However, once forced to have Chili Pan Mee, which is the dried version 3 years back at a place I forgotten, neither did I remember the shop name. I only remember that it’s quite good, and the shop is full of people. Ever since, I started to eat Pan Mee, but only the dried version, and MUST be spicy.

Then only after some time, I only know that Chili Pan Mee is one of the most famous food in Kuala Lumpur, with 2 of the most famous one are Kin Kin Chili Pan Mee and Super Kitchen Chili Pan Mee.

I chose Super Kitchen Chili Pan Mee due to I had read way too many bad reviews in terms of service by Kin Kin Chili Pan Mee. Only when I am here, I only noticed that their fierce and infamous rival – Kin Kin Chili Pan Mee are just opposite of them.

As always, my timing for hunting food is usually perfect. Both Kin Kin Chili Pan Mee and Super Kitchen Chili Pan Mee are super empty when I am here, around 10AM ++. Kin Kin Chili Pan Mee got 1 customer while Super Kitchen Chili Pan Mee got 0 customers.

I can fully understand that someone who are working in Kuala Lumpur who has fixed lunch hour to dine here and join the crowd, but I absolutely don’t understand those who have flexible lunch hour, why must you come during their peak period, and then only complain about slow and bad service? 😀
