Our trip to Hong Kong started off with some lousy in flight meal with MAS.
Soon after landed, I headed to 7-eleven to grab a local sim card and buy some packet drinks. I love the drinks here, not as sweet as Malaysia and lots of variety...
We checked in at Wan Chai Novetel Century Hotel. The newly renovated hotel has excellent service and the room was satisfactory. The AH1N1 quarantined hotel - Wan Chai Metropark was just a street behind us.
The complimentary snack - as we had a free upgrade to executive floor ( courtesy of dad's contact)
See how cute were the toiletories - like glass test tube in lab...
After refreshed ourselves, we headed to Mong Kok for shopping and most importantly makan! The nearest MTR was just 5mins walk from the hotel. We exit at Langham Place from Mong Kok Station and dined at Chee Kei@ Level 3.
Yes, it's a Michelin Guide restaurant.
The wanton was very good!
But I don't quite like the noodle, a bit too hard!!
I ordered the dry version of noodle, but turned out to be bad. I think the dry version in Malaysia is far better.
Then, my sis ordered honey sauced chicken wings & pork chop, well marinated, very nice~~~~
This restaurant is famous of the red bean with tau fu fah dessert, we ordered one and share...turn out to be good!
The meal will never complete, without a cup of authentic milk tea....so fragnant and smooth! Love it!
After a few hours of shopping marathon, time to feed our stomach! We wanted some local / hawker food. However, my sis, who has been a half Hong Kongie now ( this is her 7th year here in HK), recommended us a Japanese restaurant - Watami @ Pinonner Centre, Mongkok.
We trusted her recommendation. We waited for almost 30 mins to get a table....since the food was superb, so worth waiting!
Salad as a start - doesn't it look nice and drooling?!
Teppanyaki cheese scallops....very very nice!
Kimchi Rice taste was simple palatable!
Prawn tempura thick roll
Grilled fish- I can't remember what fish was that - but it was very fresh - feel like having more of it!
2 sets of BBQ sticks combo- c/w chicken wings, scallops, beef & chicken
Mini Shabu-shabu with Udong, sliced beef, vege & tofu
Guess how much we paid for the meal? For Hong Kong standard was cheap - HK 360/=. I feel was rather reasonable and most importantly taste was above average!
That's end of our first day in HK - - time to zzzzzzzzzz and recharged ourselves!
