UCC Coffee Shop

My friend treated me back with his first pay check!
So we decided to check out this Jap cafe style restuarant that we walked by the last time around ..
we were drawn by the hiyashi rice and I found out that both of us were into it .. So we returned

as we walked in, there was this help yourself salad bar

it was like a Japanese family restaurant style .. alot of kids and families gathered. I wasn’t too hungry after the salad, so I ordered myself a beef stew. It was pretty good! and had bread to accompany it.

Beef Stew

He had

beef curry cassarole baked rice

upon the first bite, he concluded that it tasted like a ‘Curry puff tasting beef curry cassarole baked rice’.. LOL what a description so i decided to take a bite and taste it for myself. .. Indeed it had hints of curry powder and did taste like it!
A yummy treat indeed! 🙂
and a super filled tummy 🙂
Would return to chillax, sit by the window and people watch.

Well I was just walking around Tsim Tsha Tsui and chanced upon this restaurant ..

So i dragged my only friend to go and check it out with me ..
It was quite a wait, and it seems like this restaurant is one of those that is awarded the tourism award ..

so two of us ordered

XLB

Salted Egg Yolk fried with Si Ji Dou

Dan Dan Noodles

Raddish Pastry

All was a hit but I didn’t quite like the Raddish Pastry. I think I still liked the Singapore style ones instead .. I think there was not enough like ‘juice’ inside the Raddish Pastry and it was a little dry. .. But I loved the salted egg yolk veg [ i guess everything with salted egg yolks are like …. 🙂 ]. Xiao Long Bao lived up to its standard – juicy and not much porkiness in the taste. The dan dan noodles, I personally wished it would be abit more peanutty… but nonetheless, overall I would go back again 🙂 Just to try the other dishes there as well.
Its pretty crowded so highly reccomended to book!

Shanghai Hong Kong Noodle House 上海香港麵家

I got quite bored and wanted supper .. Didnt have a fulfilling dinner.. so I trudged around after shopping around and chanced upon this place

Menu

It was quite an interesting shop, to me, because everything was pretty rustic .. like even down to the tables and chairs .. it felt very like ‘ ok, order, hurry eat and get out!’ .. But the waiter was very nice and patient in taking orders from my broken cantonese. I ordered

Soyabean

Yummies! would come back here for this

Xiao Long Baos

this didnt go down too well for me .. It had very minimal soup and the meat had that porky after taste ..

Shredded Chicken with shanghainese glass noodles in peanut sauce

I loved this .. it was cold .. portioning a little big  but its simple and something different from the normal type of noodles.. I think this was meant to be an appetizer on the menu, but it totally filled me up!

 

Would return for this and the soyabean.
