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
Salted Egg Yolk fried with Si Ji Dou
Dan Dan Noodles
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!
67-71 Chatham Road South,
Tsim Sha Tsui,
So, my direct boss is going on a 1 year long leave ( I guess when you are so smart, with no track record of losing money ; i.e. just making less money, you can afford to make such requests to take such long leave) .. Hes going to travel around the world and told me it was his dream since he was young and he finally gets to realise it. I am glad for him, although a little sad that I can’t continue learning under such a nice boss. ..
he brought me all over the place to eat and introduced me to friends of his.
In any case, we went to this Beijing cuisine restaurant at Tsim Tsha Tsui as he requested.

ta dumm!! there you go!! 🙂
This place is very value for money, as well as food portioning are very big. The peking duck was nicely carved ( a little too oily for me) and the sharks fin was really most value for money! Its a highly reccomended place if you are on a budget and would like to eat Chinese expensive food.
It was a bittersweet meal, although I barely know my boss ..and I feel glad and honoured to be part of his team and to have learnt much under him 🙂
The environment is like a normal bustling chinese Hong kong restaurants, with impatient waiters, food being carried all over the place, serving plates cleared efficiently.
Spring Deer restaurant
2/F, 42 Mody Road, Tsim Sha Tsui, Hong Kong, China
The last time I came to Hong kong, My brother found this place that sold a special Milk tart and other variations of tarts. I love the hong kong style of thick buttery pastry and this tart when eaten hot, its like mini melting moments of heaven.
Not an exaggeration, but the moment I stepped into Hong Kong, and in the process of settling down, I went to hunt for this milk tart .. And being unfamilar with the roads, I dragged my friend along and boy was he probably cursing at me throughout the way as we got lost turning all over the place.. BUT we finally found it!
Then one day when i was out eating lunch with boss and colleagues, he kindly met me to pass me a tart .. and.. it set the boss so gian to try it .. the following day, he and another colleague took a ferry to tsim tsha tsui and hunted it down, bought a dozen for the office 🙂
Its like molten in the middle and best eaten hot!! 🙂
Super happy 🙂

One of my favourite all time Hong Kong Snack 雞蛋仔
Its like some times, you just don’t feel like having a complete meal, or rather those times that you feel like you want to have something in between your meals, not too heavy, just greedily something to munch on that is not too savoury, at yet at the same time not too sweet , I highly reccomand this 🙂
The key and skill of making this snack, is to not let the little puffies ( the circular parts that pops out on both sides) too soft and nua when it starts to cool down. There is no filling inside, just thought I let you know but i like it. I did ever walk around and see some stalls selling 1/2 plain flavoured ones and 1/2 chocolate ones.
I super love this and when reccomanded to my friend in Hong Kong, he also seems to take a liking to it 🙂
I usually take a ferry over to tsim tsha tsui to get this! This stall is filled with celebrities photos, and I think they have another outlet in north point as well.
