[in hong kong] Nothing special on other days, just eat and eat, shop and shop and catch up with friends. Met R & Wife for lunch on Saturday. Went to U-Banquet for Dim Sum, well-known for providing superior chinese cuisine and wedding banquet. They have 8 outlets and each with different designs. We went to the one in Causeway Bay and is furnished with a vintage church style. There’s 2 levels and wondering if level 2 is for bride to do her makeup. Couple can then walk down from the marble spiral staircase…quite nice and grand. Hm…my photos were gone…sigh… You can go to their website to find out more.

And of course, my must-go place, my favorite Ming Kee restaurant. Went there on Saturday night He he he…we’ve ordered 2 prawn dishes, steamed egg, clams, bamboo clams and the bill was less than HK$650. Cheap and yummy!
While LY was shopping for her nephew’s bag, I managed to get my Adidas jacket at quite a good deal, maybe because they are clearing some winter clothes? Originally it’s about HK$1K+, and I bought it at HK$300. And it’s thick!! Also bought another pink jacket (thinner) in Mongkok’s outlet and they are having sale too. On top of the discounted price, if you buy 3 items or more, there’s additional 10% discount. Nice nice!!!!

Went for another Dim Sum brunch at Tao Heung. I was quite looking forward to it because of some very positive comments from friends. Tried and I don’t like it personally. Food was on the bland side, especially the slightly watery Century Egg & Minced Pork Congee. Prawn dumpling was really average, skin a little too sticky for me. Was disappointed with the Crispy Char Siew Bun, as I thought it will be crumbly throughout (similar to those in Crystal Jade) but it wasn’t. It’s only crumbly at the top. Sad!

Overall, I would prefer those I had at U-Banquet.
We also had a quick meal at a 大排檔 in one of the alley in Temple Street while waiting for our laundry on Sunday night. It’s not one of the few common seafood eateries with proper store front along the main streets. It’s in the alleys, roadside stalls like we see in some TVB dramas. Erm…hate to repeat again…sorry…my photos were gone… SOB SOB SOB… We had vegetables, 滑蛋蝦仁 (prawn omelette), bamboo clams…he he hehe… Find it not bad, but some may find it too oily. LY had to tilt the plate slightly to drain the oil away from the omelette…wahahaha…
OH! We’ve spotted Fullhouse while shopping in Tsim Sha Tsui and they’ve occupied quite a big area.. Went in for afternoon tea and of of course not forgetting to take pictures. A really lovely place… Here’s all pictures taken by LY.
