1. Sang Kee Congee 生記粥品專家


Porridge may seem plain by its looks. The sweet fish porridge was unexpectedly flavourful and doesn’t have any fishy smell or taste. It’s very smooth and can literally drink it. Not forgetting their giant fish ball made with real fish meat. So Q that it kept slipping off my spoon. I’ve ordered a 鱼球及等粥 (Signature porridge with fish balls), it comes with more than 5 different ingredients like meatballs, fish balls, pig’s intestines, kidneys, fish slices and more! I’ve also noticed that the locals like to order porridge with fish bones.

2. Yat Lok 一樂燒鵝

First meal and foremost, to satisfy my cravings for goose meat. Lucky to receive a plate of goose meat with a good thick layer of fat under the light crisp skin. The texture and flavour of the meat beneath were tender and flavourful. Yat Lok is featured on the Michelin Guide.

3. Famous Dim Sum 名點心


Thou they’re called Famous Dim Sum, they’re not that famous in Hong Kong. Reached on a Friday dinner, the dim sum restaurant was only half filled. I’ve also noticed that almost 99% of the diners are locals. That’s what I like, to enjoy what the local eats and to uncover a hidden gem. I’m not a carbs person however I don’t mind having steam prawns over rice with lotus leaf. Wonderful aromatic rice with a nice scent of the lotus leaf, garlic and prawn juice. Can taste the goodness of each individual grains of rice and not a mushy mass of rice. Feeling welcome at this dim sum place with their good service. A little surprise as the service crew brought the bill to us and even opened the door when we’re leaving. Not sure is it because I’ve been snapping away or they have this practice all along. But such practice, definitely very rare in Hong Kong Cafe.

4.  Ma Sa Restaurant 孖沙茶餐廳


I love the runny yolky, glossy happiness of a sunny side up fried egg with crispy edges triple eggs triple joys. Definitely, the perfect egg that I would crave for. There are also many slices of cha siew hidden under the triple eggs. The cha siew are decently tender and nicely seasoned.

5. Tsim Chai Kee 沾仔记


Ordered wonton noodles with three toppings (wonton, fish ball and beef slices) and received a big surprise with this HUGE fishball. You know whenever we order fishball in Singapore, we get fishball in ping-pong size. This is of tennis ball size!!! Maybe even bigger size if you’re lucky as each piece is freshly minced and handmade. Each piece of wonton dumpling comes with crunchy king prawn and tender meat. The beef slices were slightly raw but tender and juicy. I do enjoy the al dente noodles but not the strong yellow wax taste as usual. Didn’t get to try the soup before it is diluted with yellow noodles wax. Tsim Chai Kee is featured under Michelin Bib Gourmand list.

6. The Alley 鹿角巷


Brown sugar deerioca milk was superbly smooth and creamy milk tea with chewing good deerioca pearls soaked in sweet brown sugar. The bad thing is you can only buy two cups of deerioca drinks after queuing for soooo long.

7. Australian Dairy Company 澳洲牛奶公司


While people go for scrambled egg, I go for their “Snow White” steamed egg white fresh milk pudding. It’s custardy soft and served warm. Even softer than our local beancurd dessert. Very comforting especially during the winter season. My boyfriend is a fan of their macaroni with ham but I don’t really like it. Did not experience a decent service, they simply storm away when we wanted to order more dishes. Thus, we had to wait for another service crew.

8. Lung Kee Wanton 龍記招牌雲吞


Here’s my number two choice for wonton noodles. Always love Hong Kong wonton with crunchy shrimp. However, I can never enjoy their noodles or soup as it will be diluted with yellow noodles wax. Psst, don’t forget to add their special homemade Signature chilli sauce to the wonton or noodles. It’s not very spicy and comes with bean paste. Decent service and one of the aunties can communicate with minimum English. They also sell raw ingredients like wontons, beef, fish ball and even their chilli sauce.

9. Lee Keung Kee North Point Egg Waffles 利強記北角雞蛋仔


Walked past this mini store along King’s Road couple of times and they’re always flooded with waiting customers. My boyfriend and I decided to try as there’s no queue on a weekday evening around 6pm. The outer core was very crisp and breaks apart with almost no effort. A good eggy taste, not the overly sweet flavour. Not forgetting the smidges of crisp around the edges too! You might be shocked at the mini kitchen with all the chunky and thick wirings. Lee Keung Kee North Point Egg Waffles is listed under Michelin Guide 2016-2017 and various Hong Kong good food channels.

10. Fei Jie 肥姐小食店


Read a couple of good reviews about this street food and decided to try for the first time. The Signature big combo comes with octopus, pig offal and turkey kidney. You may wish to skip turkey kidney, a little too chewy. The crunchy octopus and pig offal with stuffings are good to try. I like it with sweet sauce and mustard. While shooting videos for my Instagram stories, I was also worried that I might get scolded by Fei Jie. *Eyes on no photography sign* Fei Jie was pretty kind to me after all, not those bad attitude as written under the reviews.
