Macau/HK 2013 – Tung Po Kitchen 東寶小館 and Lee Keung Kee North Point Eggette 利強記北角雞蛋仔

Feb 9, 14 at 5:01 pm

One of the highlights of the trip was the visit to “dai pai dong” 大排檔, HK’s heritage as proclaimed by the locals. Given the fast paced development in the land scarce HK, this culture is fast diminishing. Most of the “dai pai dong” that used to operate by the road side are centralized and moved to much cleaner food markets.

There are many food markets in HK, to be able to find good food in these food markets is another seemingly impossible task for us visitors unless you have done extensive homework. Having previously visited food market in Mongkok for delicious congee, we targeted another food market which is located in North Point.

Having enjoyed the day in Sai Kung, we reluctantly left the place by bus to the nearest MTR station that took us to North Point. We settled at a stall called Tung Po 東寶小館, and seeing that we were still full, we just ordered three dishes, which happen to be Tung Po’s signature dishes as well.

The first, wind sand chicken 風沙雞. Crispy on the outer and tender inside, this was one the best roasted chicken we ate in a long time.

From Wong Tai Sin temple, we took MTR to Diamond Hill station, where we boarded KMB bus number 92 to Sai Kung 西貢. The excursion to Sai Kung turned out to be one of the highlights in our trip because we could see what locals usually do and we also get to eat at one of the famous seafood restaurants in Sai Kung.

Dinner time again in HK! What would you like to have? Well, we have had enough of wan tan noodles, congee and food that locals eat daily hence we unanimously decided to splurge on some expensive food. (“We” is out of context by the way because I was the only one making decision)

So, off we went to Central and in 15 minutes, we were magically seated in Yung Kee Restaurant. Why Yung Kee? Because I’ve heard of it so much and I want to see and taste it for myself to see how good it is. Roasted goose and century eggs apparently are their specialties.

Macau didn’t really impress me on my first visit two years back. Blame it on my lack of research because I thought there isn’t much to do there since we were just spending a night. At the end of the day, I just wished we did not come in the first place.

But that was two years ago. This time, I spent quite an effort planning it and I’m just glad to say, although we only hit 70% of my planned itinerary, the outcome turned out pretty good.

Our first stop of the was Rua do Cunha, which is located at Taipa. This is the street famous with few things – Casa de Pasto Seng Cheong, Gelatina Mok Yi Kei and Pastelaria Fong Kei. Seng Cheong is popular for its water crab congee but we did not try as we had our lunch somewhere earlier.

Gelatina Mok Yi Kei is famous for its durian ice cream and sawdust pudding. I only tried the former as I did not aware of the sawdust pudding. The durian ice cream is full of flavour and they are quite generous with the amount of durian they put in.

This particular shop was part of my second day itinerary. I wouldn’t give it a miss because it is the outright winner in openrice.com. All the food bloggers sang nothing but praises about this shop. What is so special with this shop anyway?

LDM Mutton BBQ @ Geylang, Singapore

Sep 9, 10 at 8:34 pm

I’m hungry now and my comrades are all still busy with their business, so while waiting why not write something interesting which I tried not too long ago.

~*~*~*~

I’m sure everyone is quite aware where is Geylang and why it is so famous in Singapore. Well, apart from being a “red light district”, this place offers some interesting food as well.

Geylang is actually famous for its frog porridge, which I actually tried the other day, but there is another place which is worth mentioning here, LDM (刘大吗) Mutton BBQ. This small establishment located by the main road is basically a skewer shop where charcoal grill is provided at each metal table for a more personal bbq-ing experience.

Pick your food from the ever extensive menu and choose if you want the meat raw or cooked. We chose the latter in order to save time grilling them.

We ordered a plate of Japanese cucumber as appetizer and it turned out to be a wise choice. Great finger food!
