Hong Kong Trip Nov 08- Part 1

My journey to HK is mostly about food and shopping! However, I did not manage to buy a lot of stuff as most of the stuff are winter clothes. Central is full of good food!!!

This street just so old skool and very LOCAL to me!I am loving it!

In this post I am going to introduce you guys to the food I've tasted around Central area, Hong Kong. These food outlets are located on Wellington Street, Central. It's not far away from the MTR station and they are all very famous.

their wantan noodles, this is good! the soup is so sweet and the wantans are very fresh and huge! It's a pity that it's really small tho, it would have taken me two bowls to fill up my stomach :p

This is a place that I will return when I next visit HK

2. Host unlimited photos at slide.com for FREE!Yung Kee Roast Goose

As I haven't tasted goose before, we ordered a standard portion with rice to see if we like it. Priced at around HKD80, I don't really like the texture of goose therefore I don't know how to appreciate this dish.

we also ordered this, some dim sum with lapcheong and foe grais. What was I thinking? it's a weird combi for me.

it won some awards apparently...

Em, I probably won't return to this retaurant as it's quite expensive and not local enough for me.

3. Tai Cheong Egg Tart
I miss this so much!!! This is the BEST egg tart I've ever tasted!!!

BEST egg tart ever!Priced at 5HKD each , very well worth it! The center of the egg tart will melt immediately when you put it in your mouth and the crust is full of fragrant butter smell!

I regretted that only had ONE of this as we were too full from Yung Kee! WHAT A SHAME! I will definitely return to this shop when I next visit HK!

4. Liang Xiang Lou Dim Sum

There are so many people! You basically have to find your own seat and sit with other people. I think there are most locals than tourists in this shop!
