Nov 2011 in Hong Kong: Food heaven!

Hong Kong is a great place for some really fantastic and inexpensive meals which are uniquely Hong Kong. See for yourself:

This "Cha Chan Teng" was near Times Square. Very posh looking.
The Wanton Mee (Dry) was out of this world! Each wanton was filled with a whole shrimp! Look at how much kailan (vegetable) they gave me! The portion was huge! Price? Less than S$6. Came with complimentary tea and soup.

Hong Kong is, of course, famous for Yum Cha (tea time) and that is from 2pm to 4.30pm at this particular tim sum place I went to in Kowloon.
The entrance to the restaurant which was found on the second floor of a building.
A pot of pu-erh (Poh Lei in Cantonese) and a pot of warm water.
I had char siew pau (steamed roasted pork buns), zar wanton (fried wanton), char siew cheong fun (steamed rice noodle rolls with roasted pork). All these with tea for a princely sum of less than S$10! Unbelievable!

One of the tram stops was directly outside this "Cha Chan Teng" and I decided to have breakfast there one day as its facade was impressive with all its menus!

Pork chop, egg, ham, thick toast, baked beans, slices of cucumber and tomato. Price? HK$26 or a bit more than S$4. Where to find?
Just get off at this tram stop. Enjoy!
