Eat again in Hong Kong!

#throwback Hong Kong 2014 trip

This post is all about the food! 

Hong Kong food

On my 3rd trip to HK, it’s all about slowing down and eat all I can. I ate in cha chan teng everyday, for their milk tea / noodle. The taste was so different with ours and theirs were really nice.

The roast chicken / pork / goose / duck were really yummy. But, it was quite expensive for the goose.

Walk into any of the dim sum shop and they all were so tasty. No need queue up for Michelin star dim sum at all. 😀

And we spotted this crepe shop just nearby our hotel, their durian crepe was really delicious. Especially for a non-dessert person like me, I have to say, this was really good.

Nothing to shout about for Macau food. It was quite expensive and crowded with tourists. I wouldn’t say it was a good experience to be there. But it’s just a “been there, done that” experience. I will not want to go back to Macau again. Not for the food, not for the casino, definitely not for the crowd.

And this mark the end of my HK food trip. Guess I won’t be going there anytime soon. Probably 5 years later? Guess I will only go there again for family trip to HK disneyland. 😀

Yogurt after dinner @ Tutti Fruity

Promised sweetheart gona bring him to Haagen Dazs but Gurney Plaza doesn’t have one. So we settled for Tutti Fruity yogurt.

 Let him choose one flavor and topings.He got chocolate yogurt & gummy bears.

Sis choose another flavour and toppings. She got grape yogurt & milo cereal. I put the almond as extra.

Enjoying the chocolate yogurt to himself. Lol…

Well, we helped him to finish some because he has mild cough already. So he was complaining that we finished his chocolate flavor yogurt. lol.

Brunch @ Toby’s Estate

Another brunch time @ Toby’s Estate ^^

I had brunch here once with when my Taiwan friend visited me n Erin 🙂

They have changed their style of serving on my second visits and I wasn’t impressed with it. It took them so long to get an order and also to get the bill & changes. >.<|||

Previously I can just order via the counter and they will serve the food quite fast and nothing else already. Now, they will come with the menu, take your orders, serve you food, take the bill for you and return you with the change.

Well, since they have changed their style, I can say, the food still good. I ordered the big breakfast and it was quite nice. Though not as good as Wild Honey, but, still better than eM by the river :p

Their coffee was quite good… Good for coffee lovers 🙂

Brunch @ eM by the river

Time for brunch tasting ^^ This time round, I have chosen eM by The River which was recommended by my colleague.

I saw this place when I passes by one day… it feels cozy because you will have your breakfast / lunch under the sun/tree…  quite hard to find such environment in a busy city 🙂

Anyway, I went to tried this on a Saturday Morning. Ordered a eM by the river’s breakfast

It came with a fresh juice for $20.

However, the food wasn’t very nice though.It was just plain normal. Nothing special. Just the environment is good enough. 

Anyway, I haven’t try the other food on the menu. Probably you could check it out and let me know how you think? 🙂

Lao ban soya bean curd vs 51 soya bean curd

I’m going to blog about this 2 special & famous soya bean curd in Singapore, where people willing to queue up for 15mins just to get their hands on it.

Well, that only applicable to the famous lao ban soya bean curd aka 老伴豆花. You will never have to queue up that long for it.

Lucky me, I get to taste the both of them, especially 51 soya beancurd which is at Army Market food centre nearby my office.

The texture of this bean curd was really soft and the milky taste just dissolved instantly when you put them in your mouth.

It’s very refreshing. Definitely different from the usual bean curd you can have anywhere.

51 Soya Bean only has 2 stores in Singapore:

51 Soya Bean – Main Branch
51 Old Airport Road
#01-72 Old Airport Road Food Centre
Tel: 90907009
Opening Hours: Daily 10am – 10pm

51 Soya Bean (Army Market Food Centre)
505 Beach Road
#B1-04 Golden Mile Food Centre
Tel: 9388 1098
Opening Hours: Daily 10am – 8.30pm

Lets move on to Lao ban bean curd. They are famous for their almond bean curd. However, I’m not a big fan of almond. And in order to compare both 51 and lao ban, I have opt for original taste.

To me, this lao ban bean curd tasted very silky and smooth. Not so strong on the milky taste and it also felt refreshing. 🙂

You guys can check out the 2 branches of lao ban bean curd:

Lao Ban Soya Beancurd 老伴豆花 (Main Branch)
51 Old Airport Road
#01-127 Old Airport Road Food Centre
Tel: 81812201
Main enquiry line: 8299-8211 (For SMS orders)
Opening Hours: Tue–Sat  1130am – 8pm  (1130 and 1830 2 batches)
                                 Sun 1pm – 8pm (1300 and 1900 2 batches)
(Closed on Mon)

Lao Ban Soya Beancurd (Maxwell Food Centre)
Maxwell Road
#01-91 Maxwell Food Centre
Tel: 8299 8211 (For SMS orders)
Opening Hours: Mon-Sat 1130am-4pm (1 batch)
(Closed on Sun)

Well, after tastes both, my conclusion will be:

1. 51 tasted stronger than lao ban.The milky taste is definitely strong in 51. Lao ban slightly softer in the taste. However, if you are not a milk person, then you will prefer lao ban bean curd better.

2. Both are of the same price ~ $1.50/bowl. On a losing side for lao ban, is that they didn’t offer soya bean drink where 51 did offer it. And it tasted just like the bean curd. It’s really the best soya bean I’ve ever drank.

3. No waiting time for 51 where else you have to wait for some time in order to buy 1 bowl of lao ban bean curd.

Ahem, not to be bias, I would rather go for 51 than lao ban. But, this is depends on individual. 🙂 Do check them out guys~! And no, I’m not paid by 51 to write this blog. It is just my own opinion. ^.^

 So, what’s your preference?

It’s all about food in KL – 2

Continue my food search in KL…

Next stop – Haagen Dazs @ Midvalley

It’s been so long since I last had my favorite ice-cream Haagen Dazs!!! Omg! So niceeeeee so yummyyyy…. love it to the max!

Sixth stop – Goku Raku Ramen for dinner

Saw this shop and it’s newly open… well.. at least just few months ago if I’m not wrong… and since we don’t know what to eat and friend has craving for ramen, so we went there for dinner….

They have this super worth it promo when we were there.. it was a buy 1 free 1 promo.. and only valid on every Monday till end of Sept…

So… with my friend tam chiak face, he ordered 2 bowls of ramen for himself cuz he said it’s super worth it ma.. =.=

I have one serving is more than enough already .. don’t want to grow anymore fatter :p

Seventh stop – Supper at mamak stall

 

I was craving for fried chicken wing and roti canai on the last night… suppose wanted to out for a drink but since I have this craving, we might as well go for supper instead!

My fried chicken wing and roti canai! yum yum…

Friend opted for tandoori chicken set…

The bill turned out to be quite ex as well… omg…. miss Penang food so much since they were way much cheaper and nicer!

Last meal in KL….. breakfast at Papa Rich

Egg, milk tea and toast for me!

Food just normal in Papa Rich.. but the price was double than the normal hawker centre… well… this is the price you have to pay for eating in a franchise outlet with aircon in them LP

There goes my food blog on KL trip…. phew… so much about food… well… I didn’t shop much in KL… not with the right shopping mate… hahha… but I do enjoy this trip very much… at least it was fruitful 😀

It’s all about food in KL – 1

I went to KL on Raya weekend… to find food!!! and also leisure la :p

However, lets talk about fooddd cuz we just love food aren’t we?

First stop ~ Vietnamese dinner

Had this in The Curve … but the food quite disappointing. The taste is not good and it was even far worse than the vietnamese food I had in Australia before. Well, Australia one was the best Vietnamese food I have ever tried. Probably Vietname has the authentic and nice one, but I can’t find them in local yet, may it be Malaysia or Singapore.

As for their famous rice poh piah, it was cold. Means it was done earlier and kept in the fridge. So the vege inside wasn’t fresh. Totally a turn off.

The chicken pho, also one of the famous dish in Vietnam, wasn’t nice as well. The broth was not thick enough and it doesn’t have pungent smell.

Sad meal….

Next, cone pizza at Sunway Pyramid as my next day snack…

Saw this on my last visit to KL… but was very full so didn’t try it. This time, friend wanted to try it. And to our surprised, it was great!

The skin was crispy, the cheese inside was melting in my mouth and it was yummy! I just love it. Eat it while it’s still hot. Too bad it was quite pricy though. 1 cone pizza cost us MYR 6.90. Buy 2 at MYR 13. And it wasn’t that big. few mouth then you are done.

Third stop -dinner at Jalan Alor

I have to say, my friend has a thing for Jalan Alor 干炒牛河粉 or fried beef noodle in English. I don’t take beef so I don’t know what so great about it. But he insisted we go back there for dinner if we ever visit KL again.

And he always like to order a lot of side dishes other than his main 干炒牛河粉 or fried beef noodle in English. See the picture below for his beef noodle… just looks like normal cha koay teow to me :p

The food we ordered consisted of – bbq chicken wing (MYR 2.50/pcs) -> my favourite~! , fried asparagus (MYR 8/plate), claypot tofu (MYR 15/pot). All for sharing…

And only this 砂煲田鸡洲 – claypot frog porridge for me… cost me MYR 12

Overall, the food wasn’t cheap in Jalan Alor as they are targeting tourist. And you can find most of the workers are foreigners. The price I mentioned earlier might not be accurate but close to it. I can’t really remember much of the prices except the chicken wing cuz it was freaking expensive!

Forth stop – local delight for breakfast

Went to Asia Cafe at Sunway Giza there…. Had chicken soup for brunch…

As for friend, ordered their fried indian noodle & also Sabah noodle cuz he said the Sabah noodle looked yummy =.= excuse given by tam chiak ei lang…

When I saw his indian fried noodle, I was so tempted to cancel my chicken soup order and order the fried noodle instead… lol… gosh! Made me miss the fried sotong noodle in Penang so much!

The Sabah noodle was quite nice… I just have had a few sips of the soup only and friend finished it off…

So far.. just update this first ya….

Stay tuned for the next up on my continuation of  food searching in KL ~! Food food food~! Nom nom nom ~! 😀
