HK – Lan Fong Yuen, Nice Congee Shop & Maxim’s

Lan Fong Yuen(兰芳园) - Chung King Mansions (重慶大廈), Kowloon

Been there twice during last trip and blogged about it already. Definitely a place worth revisiting, hence the third visit together with Chris’s parent!

金牌猪排包 (Signature Pork Chop Bun) – something you can’t miss here! A thin slice of tender pork chop & tomato sandwiched between 2 slices of lightly toasted burger bun - simple and unpretentious. Nom ~

Egg, sausage, ham & toast – wouldn’t it be nice if I could wake up to a hearty breakfast like this every morning?

絲襪奶茶 (Milk Tea) – actual translation should be Pantyhose Milk Tea but it doesn’t sound nice so I cut off the “pantyhose” :P Yum cha yum cha ….

Nice Congee Shop – Woo Sung Street, Jordan

A well-hidden shop! Kind of like an adventure to locate this humble congee shop. It is located at some old streets away from the glamorous city, surrounded by old buildings and apartments.

Old buildings. The sky was getting dark and raining.

Inside the shop. Small and cramped, just like what we seen in some TVB dramas. Ahh, I like that feel.

魚皮(Cold Fish Skin) – uber crispy! Too crispy that it appeared a tad artificial to me. Wonder what they used to soak the fish skin to make such a crispy texture. Despite the doubt, it was good.

魚腩粥 (Fish Belly Congee) – A bowl of thick and smooth congee with a generous amount of fish belly hidden underneath. They used 鯇魚 (Chinese Carp Fish) for all fish congee.

魚尾粥 (Fish Tail Congee)

鯪魚球 (Fried Canton Carp Ball) – big and chewy.

Maxim’s (Fast food restaurant) - Mongkok
You may see “Maxim’s” (美心) everywhere – in every corner of the street and in the subway, especially. But there are two types of Maxim’s (under the same roof) – bakery and fast food restaurant. They have more outlets for bakery shop compare to fast food restaurant. Having said that, it isn’t easy to locate them. While Café de Coral (大家樂) wins hands down in the quantity of outlet, the roasted pork at Maxim’s is undeniably better.

雙拼 (2 combo of your choice – Roasted Pork and Steamed Chicken) – the crispiness of the skin of roasted pork is simply addictive.

I'm salivating now looking back at those photos.... *tummy growling*
