My first Hong Kong friend that I made was with my housing agent. Believe it or not, as random as it is. She kindly brought my parents and I around to the best eats around the city 🙂
She brought us to a dim sum lunch at TaiKoo City. She mentioned to us she used to work there before, thus can navigate around very well around Tai Koo, and reccomend us to eat this super famous char siew place.
Taikoo City is like a very self-contained ‘Ang mo Kio’ .. just abit more high class and very self-sufficient. Its very huge in its mall .. but once you step out, its nicely embedded in the midst of many residential accommodations. Very nice and well facilitated. Accordingly, alot of young couples reside in that area as well 🙂
Everywhere in Hong Kong is super crowded, especially during the weekends – its impossible to get places unless you book .. So we managed to go to one of the restaurants she reccomended after waiting to enter for quite a while ..
I think overall, maybe because we got our table very late, so most of the dim sums were sold out .. we only had a few choices to choose from. This is a maybe for me … I might come back for the char siew and pigeon, but other than that .. I doubt it though .. hmss
