Hong Kong Food Hunting Trip Part 1

This is our first visit to pearl of oriental – Hong Kong. We were staying at Chungking mansion, which is located at the busy area of tsim sha tsui. We would like to share the information on the foods that we had tried in this trip.

Kam Wah Cafe Hong Kong (金华冰厅)

A traditional cafe located at G/F, 47 Bute Street, Mongkok, Hong Kong (太子弼 街47號地下, 香港)

baked polo bun with butter
They are famous in freshly baked polo bun with butter (菠萝油) and also egg tarts. Polo Bun is crunchy but it is a bit rich in flavor where you will feel full if you finished one by yourself. It is suggested that you can share the bun with others so that you are able to try other foods.

Hong Kong style milk tea
Hong Kong style milk tea is a must try drinks in Hong Kong. The difference comparing to Malaysia Teh Tarik, Hong Kong milk tea is less sweet with more tea aromatic. Recommended if you prefer bitter sweet taste tea.

Hot Lemon Tea
Hot Lemon Tea, taste as usual nothing much to write about.

French Toast
French Toast (西多士) a bit too oily for me.

Lantau Island (大屿山)

Lantau Island Beancurd
Beancurd (豆腐花). It claims that this beancurd dessert is made from natural mineral water from the mountain.

Lantau Island hotdog
Big and tasty hotdog, it is nice to eat hot food due to the cooling weather in Lantau Island.

Beancurd Desserts
Beancurd Desserts(豆腐花), which we ordered one hot and one cold. We find it is more nice to served in hot with the ginger sauce. It will warm you up in the chilling weather.

Pantyhose Milk Tea
Pantyhose Milk Tea (丝袜奶茶), this is more creamy compare to the one in Kam Wah Cafe.

Pork Chop Bun
Pork Chop Bun (猪扒包), the pork chop is well marinated with light toasted bun but I prefer ramli burger in Malaysia.
