For the food side of today, we went to a Tsui Wah restaurant, which is a branch of cha chaan teng, or tea restaurants, famous in Hong Kong, with 26 branches across the region from Tai Po to San Po Kong, from Kowloon to The Peak. It has a reputation for being more expensive than your standard CCT.
That said, we chose to order a beef curry with Indian pancake, wonton noodle soup, satay beef brisket noodle soup, mini pork cutlet burgers and for drinks and dessert, we ordered a grass jelly and coconut milk drink and French toast with condensed milk and chocolate and peanuts. It was yum but also so simple to make yourself at home!
For dinner, we had Korean again and after our horrible Korean BBQ experience on Day 3, we chose to go to Korea Town, a sit down Korean restaurant in Tsim Sha Tsui. There was a lot of items on the menu but we decided on Spicy Kimchi Rice Cake Ramen, Pork Dumplings, Sizzling Stone Pot Rice and two types of Korean Fried Chicken.
Then after making our way back to Tai Po, we headed to a dessert parlour. Now the menu was completely in Chinese so I’ll do my best to describe what each dessert is. First we had a mango ice cream with sago, black jelly and fresh fruit.
Second was a red bean and coconut crushed ‘iceberg’. In a similar vein, the third dessert was a rainbow iceberg which had little jelly cubes at the bottom. Then I had a Sweet Beans dessert, which had a whole range of different textures and flavours. It was quite nice and different to anything I had before and it was enjoyable.
