Hong Kong: Best Wonton in Hong Kong!

Our friend Rob was on a business trip here and we took him to what are supposed to be the best Wonton noodles place in Hong Kong; Tsimchaikee, and Mak's, both on Wellington street.

It was our first time as well. Both places were packed. Oh, yeah, by the way, we went to one, right after the other... so perfect scenario for comparison.

Our verdict: despite for their smaller wontons, Mak as an edge because of their broth; much tastier than Tsimchaikee's. If you have only one place to go an quality beat quantity, go to Mak's. However, they are both good and inexpensive.

Hong Kong: Simply Life

We've been craving for salad and brownies (go figure). Simply Life had both. Decent.

Caprese salad. Large enough for two!

Moderately priced.

(March 21 addition: We went again a few times! Now, we really like Simply Life; bread is good, the food is very tasty. They must learn to bring the plates together however! Brunch is also very good)

Lamb. Juicy.

Chicken burger with cheese and mushrooms. The chicken is ground and - I think - mixed with cheese before it is cooked. Very tasty! Very pleasant texture.

Hong Kong: Fanling, home cooked meals...

I thought I'd post a few pictures of what is our current diet here in Hong Kong.

Most of our supper are taken with my in-laws and consist of one or two fish dishes, one or two veggie dishes (mostly steamed or boiled) and a pork an/or chicken dish. All of those dishes are shared, as per tradition here.

My in-laws, busy planning their 'attack' on food. The bottle of red is our twist on the traditional Chinese meal...

Hong Kong: AgnesB - Le Pain Grille

Auntie 3 and Uncle 3 invited us for dinner at Le Pain Grille, a restaurant in Causeway Bay.

It was a very enjoyable night of good food with good people.
Can't really comment on price as we didn't have to pay (yay!).
