Hong Kong 2015 - Day 2

Tao Heung Restaurant

So succulent and juicy that I have to post 2 photos of this!

Macau Restaurant

This is my must-eat in Hong Kong!

Before coming to Hong Kong, we already had a few places in mind that we must go for their food. So on the 2nd day, we went to Tao Heung for their dim sum because we had a great experience there on our last trip 2 years ago. But sadly this time round it was disappointing, except for their siew mai which has two succulent juicy fresh prawns in it that just makes you want to go for a second one, and a third and a fourth! The waiting time for the food to arrive was a long wait too and Zoe was being all cranky as it was already her nap time. Thankfully, after the husband carried her and patted her, she dozed off shortly and we could eat in peace. And, kudos to the husband for using chopsticks like a pro with his LEFT hand!

One of the food highlights for me has to be the Macau Restaurant at Tsim Sha Tsui. Whenever we are in Hong Kong, I would go eat this because its so good! The photo on the menu looks very bad but please try it if you are there! The macaroni is cooked in beef brisket tomato soup, and has small pieces of potato and carrot cubes, half a slide of luncheon meat, juicy chicken chop, a huge piece of ham and topping it off with a sunny side up. Its those kind comfort food that makes everything feels better! I should really try to replicate this at home and see if I can come close to this! Oh and not forgetting to mention that the pork buns and Portuguese egg tarts were delicious too!

Getting around in Hong Kong was very pleasant for us as the MTR system is pretty like the one in Singapore. We didn't have the need to take a cab and was always able to walk from the MTR to our destinations. As we did not purchase a Hong Kong SIM card, we had no 3G network while we were out. So, my husband screen shot the maps of all the places we were going for the day so that we can refer to them while on the road. It worked really well for us, or rather for him as I just simply followed wherever he went.

I am actually really glad we didn't have network while we were out, as it forced us not to check on our phones at all. I got to admit that both my husband and I spend a lot of time on our phones even right up to bedtime. So with this "cold turkey treatment", we had really good quality time spent with one another and had time to slow down and take in what the trip had offered. I think we should keep this habit for our future trips!
