Eat & Shop Hong Kong – Day 1

We arrived into Hong Kong in the early evening and after a quick ride into the city by airport express, we threw our bags after we checked-in at Panorama Hotel (Tsim Sha Tsui) and grabbed a cab to Whampoa Gourmet Place (Hung Hom).

The building is located right across this giant cruise ship which is a shopping centre!

We had reservations at a restaurant called Wing Lai Yuen which apparently has awesome ‘dan dan’ noodles (担担面). Did I mention that I lurrrrrve dan dan mian?

We left the ordering to the experts and soon after, the noodles arrived.

Needless to say, it was yummylicious. Slurp. Just check out the thick soup consistency! Here are some of my other favourite dishes from dinner:

Thinly-sliced pork with a sweet-and-savoury sauce. I couldn’t stop popping slice after slice into my mouth…

This was my 2nd favourite – sweet and sour fish. It’s a commonly found dish in Singapore but just look at the cute ‘fish’ shapes! It almost looked too cute to be eaten. Awwww. They almost look like 2 lil’ bunnies eh? If you look at the second picture carefully, you’d notice that the meat of the fish has been ‘fluffed’ up and deep-fried. This gave the dish a really crunchy texture which was oh-so-good with the sweet and sour sauce. Mmmmm….

Post-dinner, we headed off to Temple Street for a spot of shopping where I bought the Angry Birds plushies and a couple of random bits. Next up on the itinerary was dessert at Sweet Dynasty (糖朝). It wasn’t my first time there but I remember the awesome ‘tau huey’ so naturally, I ordered a huge pot of it to share.

It was as good as I remember it to be…
