    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

    [​IMG]

    Here comes the porridge - lean meat with pork liver

    [​IMG]

    Submerine u-char-kway this is how I like it

    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

    If you want a good Cantonese meal can try Lei Garden. Believe they are in Singapore too. This is at

    Shop Nos. 2068-70, Second Level, Elements, No.1 Austin Road West, Tsim Sha Tsui, Hong Kong, Tel (852) 2196 8133

    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

    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.
