Hang Heung Cake Shop 恒香老饼家

There is something that I will always buy if I visit Hong Kong, and that is Hang Heung Cake Shop‘s (恒香老饼家) famous 老婆饼, literally “wife cakes”.  This cake shop originated from Yuen Long in New Territories, and it also has 2 outlets in Kowloon and 1 outlet in Hong Kong island. Wife cake is a…

Wong Tai Sin Temple 黄大仙祠

Wong Tai Sin Temple, a well-known shrine & major tourist attraction in Hong Kong, is famous for the many prayers answered. I hope it’s true that “what you request is what you get” (有求必应)! 😛 The temple is very accessible, located just next to exit B2 of Wong Tai Sin station on the green Kwun…

Chopsticks Kee 筷子記

Chopsticks Kee (筷子記) is a little eatery selling uniquely Hong Kong fare – noodles that are similar to che zai mian (车仔面). My friend brought me there for dinner on Monday, after I told her I would like to try che zai mian as I hadn’t eaten that in Hong Kong yet. The eatery is…

Tai O 大澳

Tai O (大澳), a fishing town located on the western side of Lantau Island in Hong Kong, is a hot tourist spot known as the “Venice of Hong Kong”. It’s a shame that I had been to Hong Kong 4 times but had never visited Tai O before this trip, so this was definitely on…

Kam Wah Café (金華冰廳)

I love pineapple buns with butter (菠蘿牛油包) so naturally I had to hunt down the best (or at least highly recommended) 菠蘿牛油包 when in Hong Kong right? My research online told me that I should head to Kam Wah Café (金華冰廳) near Prince Edward station. 🙂 It was a late start to my day as…

One Dim Sum 一點心

In 2012, One Dim Sum restaurant (一點心) was awarded one Michelin Star, together with the famous Tim Ho Wan. So I requested my friend to go there together with me for dinner. When we arrived at the restaurant around 7pm, we saw quite a number of people waiting outside the restaurant already. Since they did…

All About Steamed Milk Pudding (燉奶)

I have long heard about the 2 cha chan teng (茶餐厅) – Yee Shun Dairy Company (YS, 港澳義順牛奶公司) & Australia Dairy Company (ADC, 澳洲牛奶公司) that specialise in steamed milk pudding (燉奶) but didn’t get to try them out on previous trips to Hong Kong. Although I have heard extreme mixed reviews on both restaurants, I…

Dolphin Watching Tour in Hong Kong!

Guess not many Singaporeans know that it is possible to view wild Indo-Pacific humpback dolphins (or simply “pink dolphins”) in Hong Kong waters, & even if they do, most would just pay for a 25 min boat ride at Tai O, Lantau Island to see the beautiful dolphins. I also got to know of such…

Cong Sao Star Dessert 聪嫂私房甜品

The dessert I ate at Via Tokyo Japanese Dessert Cafe didn’t seem to be that satisfying, so after some “research” on Openrice Hong Kong for nearby good Hong Kong desserts, my friend suggested we head to Cong Sao Star Dessert (聪嫂私房甜品) along Yiu Wa Street (耀華街, near Causeway Bay Station exit A). The dessert shop…
