Let me start this thread as I could not find one but if there is any please merge it.
Whenever I travel always like to start the day in a traditional market
Breakfasts in Hong Kong is always great, it could be in a restaurant with timsum or like this simple porridge joint
While waiting for your porridge to be freshly made can order their fun-cheong or our chee cheong fun. I like the Hong Kong style with peanut sauce and chili
Here comes the porridge - lean meat with pork liver
Submerine u-char-kway this is how I like it
After breakfast if game can go for the 24hrs massage, this is what I call progressive city
Lucky for the Hongkongers, the Indian ma-ma still not occupy corners like this unlike western cities
Always wonder how food in this 茶餐厅 taste, always very long queue
Lunch at a popular roadside needle store
Dry noodle they call loh-meen
After mix and stir
With wonton or fishball
Hong Kong yew mee is finer than ours and harder making it QQ very deoicious
Two years ago when I first went to the 新斗记 restaurant in Jordan and another in the Hong Kong island side there were like only 3 or 4 branches today they have more than 10 and also 1 in China. Today went to their Northpoint branch
The beer in bowl
Remnants of the soup great with soya sauce
Made by this guy
Ee-meen wiht prawns
Fish with brocolli
Claypot fish with tofu with shio-bak
Kailan with dray prawns - very very good with rice
The fried rice
Down all these with the great Hibiki
Another great start
Steamed carrot cake - very soft and delicious, a very big piece for only $9 ($1.50)
chow meen - simple yet tasty also $9
Freshly cooked porridge a must - lean pork with liver $28 ($4.60)

Never know XueGe 雪蛤 or hasma can be use as a soup as I always thought it s for sweet soup only. Super delicious
The things in the soup
Cold dishes - cucumber and black fungus
Gou lou yok 咕咾肉
Spinach with soup
If you like prawn paste chicken 虾酱鸡 then you will jump for this 虾酱肉骨 prawn paste pork rib, super nice
Hairy crab is in season now
List of the dishes
Night music and wine at the Intercontinental over looking Hong Kong Island - highly recommended for a nice night view of Hong Kong island. Take note that drinks are a little expensive here.
at this time of year, if i'm in hk, would go for crab at man wah or one harbour road.
If you are referring to the flower crab Teochew style served cold, done that on Monday at Harbour Road. Anyway looking forward to more hairy ones tomorrow in Hangzhou.
woa! you're one step ahead of everyone when it cums to crab. i'm still waiting for dungeness crab season, which is a month away.
