Zhengzhou china:

 

 

Not to my liking...

 

Uno's in Toa Payoh

 

 

If you custom order your steak, it is quite nice.  Normally it comes on a hotplate with gravy on top.  Ask them for it to be on a normal plate without the gravy and then the steak is quite good.  Much better then some restaurants where I have paid 2 or 3 times the price.  Plus you can bring your own wine withut a corkage and they have glasses for you

 

Not good picture of the food, but I love this place.  It is a Laksa Steamboat restaurant, San Katong Laksa Steamboat Restaurant (Telok Blangah)

 

Wine corkage is $10 per bottle

Ah... Mak noodles. No nonsense , no fancy crap, good old HK street food. It is indeed very good.

 

Served hot, best slurp them up within few minutes for best taste.

Last Friday we went to Hong Kong for food & shopping ... tried this famous Mak's noodle at 77 Wellington St, Central. Wanton noodle at HKD 35. per bowl, pretty ex.

 

 

Right across the street, this Tsim Chai Kee noodle shop sell almost same types of noodle and it's double portion at HKD19 per bowl !

 

 

That's co-incidental. I had a bowl of noodles at Tsim Chai Kee on Sunday. I think Mak's noodle is overrated and overpriced in comparison.

 

On Monday, my colleagues brought me to Kau Kee, at Gough Street to eat beef brisket noodles. Really yummy !

My wife and daughter going to Hong Kong for first time in Nov. Can recommend good and cheap food places (typical Singaporean lah)  Also for shopping.  I was there about 7 years ago for business and stayed at Tsim Tsa Shui but  ate in restaurants.  Company paid. But this time it is private for them. Thanks

My own private list of places I go to eat whenever I am in Hong Kong,

 

1. Tsim Chai Kee (Wellington Street, Central) - Wanton noodles

2. Kau Kee (Gough Street, Central) - Beef brisket noodle

3. Spring Deer restaurant (Mody Street, TST) - Please make advanced reservations - Peking Duck

4. Lan Fong Yuen (This is Cha Chan Teng)(Gage Street, Central) - Pork chop bun, milk tea and various type of instant noodles

5. Ming Yuen (Soy Street, Mongkok) - Claypot rice

 

There are some other institutions that people like to go just for the experience, although they may not be the best in terms of food,

 

1. Lin Hueng teahouse (Wellington Street, Central) - Tim Sum - Organised chaos

2. Mido Cafe (Temple Street, near Yau Ma Tei) - Typical Cha Chan Teng food and backdrop for many movies and serials.
