You cannot visit Hong Kong without tasting their local delicacies. Nonetheless when it comes to food here, you will be spoilt for choices as there are aplenty for you to test your taste buds.
Let me share with you on my jalan-jalan cari makan in Mongkok district of Hong Kong.
For breakfast, you may order a set of iced milk tea and a sausage bun.
Some shops do offer sets like the one above. For HK$22 (RM10), you get a bun, a fried egg and 2 sausages plus a glass of iced milk tea.
Breakfast in Hong Kong would set you back around HK$19 – 25 depending on your choice.
Mind you, separate orders would cost more expensive. For example, a glass of iced milk tea would be charged HK$13 (RM5.80) and a piece of egg tart alone for HK$4 (RM1.80).
The egg tart is comparable with the one I had in Ipoh. It’s simply awesome.
What about lunch and dinner, I hear you ask?
I simply could not resist the temptations their world renowned BBQ Pork and Roasted Pork posed to me.
Though I knew I was on a strict low-carb diet, I told myself “I just had to endure for a few days only! Let me eat when I am in Hong Kong!”
Steamed Chicken + Roast Duck Rice (with Iced Lemon Tea) for HK$35 (RM15.60) which is considered cheap for the Hongkies.
A dish of roast pork and some vege for 2 persons would cost HK$58. (You do the math yourself as RM44.30 = HK$100, I am not sure about today’s rate though)
A bowl of Wanton Mee and Iced Lemon Tea for HK$32 would probably close shop if its converted to Malaysian Ringgit.
This shop offers different levels of spiciness for your noodles in soup. But what’s with LEVEL 8?
Even with my high tolerance towards spicy food, I ordered the one with ‘4 Chillies – Most hot’ as I didn’t dare test my tummy. Thank God, the 4 star was super duper spicy!! It’s definitely hotter than Kin Kin’s Spicy Ban Mee or the normal Cili Padi you find back here in Malaysia. I think if i took the 8 Chilies, I’ll need to shove a firehose down my throat!
A plate of BBQ pork and Roast Duck (with Iced Milk Tea) for HK$34 I know my Kev Bear will definately love.
Nissin noodles with Roast Pork and BBQ Pork (plus Iced Lemon Tea or Iced Milk Tea) at HK$34 tasted great with Belacan.
Just remember every set that you order, any cold drinks would need extra $$. For example, a set of breakfast including your drink is to cost you HK$19. But if you order Iced Milk Tea, they will charge you a total of HK$21.
If you’re still hungry after your dinner, you can probably try out some street food especially near the Ladies’ Street and Temple Street.
You can find ‘Chao Taufu’, ‘Curry Fishballs’ and many other scrumptous bites.
