"not to be missed" streets food in HK..

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

 

Can you recommend some nice environment cafe/ restaurant for a quiet birthday dinner treat at affordable spend? I think location is not an issue - will be staying at Yau Ma Tei.

 

Would like to get a yummy slice of cakes just for hubby's birthday (instead of a whole cake since only both us travelling on this trip), any bakery you recommend?

 

Speaking of street food, I have yet try the below. Can you advise?

 

1. Gai dan zai

2. Put zai gou

Sorry I haven't had time to research for you on your post in "plan a trip". Hope that northasian could assist on it.

 

For your street snacks, you can try:

North Point Eggatte is one of the popular one in town, you can visit their small shop at TST: http://forum.allabouthongkong.com/index.php?/blog/6/entry-21-lee-keung-kee-north-point-eggette-利強記北角雞蛋仔-jordan/

 

This shop happens to appear on tv many times, http://forum.allabouthongkong.com/index.php?/blog/6/entry-258-kwan-kee-store-坤記糕品專家-sham-shui-po/

Thank you Shirousa for the recommendations.

 

Eggette at North Point has been on my list since 2010 but I have yet got the chance to go all the way there due to distance. Was checking out the food blog of northasian, I think there is another one at Jordan to have this.

 

Will try out the put zai gou at Kwan Kee.

 

Cheers~ ^_^

Personally, I quite like the environment at Harlan at The One shopping Mall, TST because you can have great view on Hong Kong Island and Kowloon part as well. http://www.h-viewgroup.hk/restaurants/harlans/

 

If you wish to order cake, there is this shop called http://www.patisserietonywong.com/. Tony Wong is very popular for his flower cake in Hong Kong. He is also the founder of http://smile-yogurt.com/, which is quite popular and delicious too. Should try it :P

Hey Madeline, I heard that 798 unit & co. - JAR is not bad though I haven't tried it personally, you may keep it in mind first.

 

Or Pizza Express at Harbour City branch, excellent harbour view and price is within affordable range. Their dessert (cheesecake...etc.) was great too. Read my blog for details: http://forum.allabouthongkong.com/index.php?/blog/6/entry-402-pizza-express-tsim-sha-tsui/ (suggest to make advance booking for a table that have the harbour view) 

 

FYI, most western restaurants can arrange to serve dessert with words & greeting written on plate, just tell them you're celebrating birthday when making reservations to arrange.

Hi Northasian,

 

JAR seems like a choice for a quiet birthday treat! Will pin on my list.. I hope the price range is an affordable one and not those throat-slitting ones.. even better, no specific attire required haha! In case I tried on my trip, I shall drop you a note here ;)

I have spotted PIzza Express on one of those TVB drama.. But not sure if we should take up Pizza as the choice during our trip. Thanks for the recommendation anyhow!

Regarding seafood in Sai Kun, I asked my friend and she was saying this restaurant has a reasonable price and food is not bad too. 金九記海鮮火鍋酒家, G/F, No.145 Pak Sha Wan, Sai Kung. But I would think that if you're purposely going to Sai Kung just for seafood, seems like a waste of time too. Anyway, just my opinion. ;)
