Foodie in Hong Kong

Went for a Hong Kong trip for a short 4 day 3 night getaway. I’m definitely not a fan of crowds and ‘rushing for time’ city so I don't really like travelling in Hong Kong that much. I find that the only thing that attracts me is food, food and food!

再兴烧腊饭店 (Joy Hing Roasted Meat)
Address: Chong Hing Building, 265-267 Hennessy Rd, Wan Chai, Hong Kong
How to get there: Alight at Wan Chai MTR station (exit A4) and walk along Hennessy Road. You will need to cross the road.

It’s a very small eatery and it gets crowded during lunch or dinner hours. You might have to share a table with others, and you cannot sit there and chit chat after you have finished your food. There are other customers waiting for your seat. 

We ordered a plate of charsiew and roast duck rice, a plate of chicken rice, a soup and an additional small plate of charsiew for only 60 HKD! Free flow of tea provided!

Look at the charsiew, it's so shiny and tender looking. Slurppp!

Lin Heung Teahouse (莲香楼)
Address: 160-164 Wellington Street, Central, Hong Kong
How to get there: Sheung Wan MTR station (Exit E2), walk pass the square, and then you will see a small lane with slopes. Cross the traffic lights and walk up the small lane until you see the signboard 莲香楼. 

At the shop front, you might think that it is selling pastries and traditional cakes, you have to walk up the stairs to the dim sum eating place. We missed this place and walk one big round back here as we were fooled by the shop front and thought it’s just a shop selling pastries. 

Once up there, notify the waiter there and he will find you a seat. Again, you will have to share the table with others. It is always crowded regardless of the time of the day. To get the food, you can either wait for the carts to reach you or just go up to the cart and grab your food, like what many others did. 

Remember to take your dim sum card along so that they will chop on it when you take a dish. Those popular dim sum are always out of stock and we didn’t manage to eat the standard har gow there. They have some special creations which we didn't try before in Singapore.

Steam pork stomach which is quite flavourful but I felt it's quite an acquired taste

Steamed version of carrot cake. It's surprisingly quite yummy.
Generally, the dim sum was quite nice. But again, it was a crowded eatery where we have to snatch with others for food to eat. I personally don't really like such a feeling. 

Hing Kee Restaurant 
Address: Temple Street
How to get there: Yau Ma tei MTR station, Exit C, turn on to Temple Street at Man Ming Lane

I love the fried oyster egg here! It’s different from Singapore style, it’s so crispy and juicy. The claypot rice is also yummy too! It's a DIY claypot rice where you have to add the sauce and mix the rice and the ingredients yourself.
