What should you eat in Hong Kong?

To be honest, I'm not sure if i could show you a list of what's my favourite food
in Hong Kong then what else should you be reading right here??
I had this long list of what i wanted to blog but it kinda took a while didn't i?

So here you go:

1) Zha Liang 炸兩 ( or pronounce as Zha Liong in Canto )
So if u ever visit Hong Kong and u missed out on this.. 
I don't know what else i should tell you to eat. But skip it if you are allergic to peanut.

So basically Zha liong is a Chinese dim sum. If you ever try chee cheong fun, it's the same
rice noodle roll used and wrap with yao char kuey 油炸鬼.
So there are so many ways of eating zha liong. But in HK you had it served with a little bit
of soy sauce and then pour genourmous portion of peanut butter sauce on top of it and there you go!
Oh and order a bowl of boat congee 艇仔粥 together~

2) Wanton Noodle 
How could you skip this one? So if you're basically a typical Asian like me, 
you can find wanton noodle everywhere. But no. In HK wanton noodle is different.

The texture of wanton noodle is so q that it makes me tear. Really. Not even kidding.
Plus, every bits of the prawn wanton is so good and fresh and like you can feel the entire bits
of prawn in your mouth squishing out all the freshness and like damn....please eat it.

For wanton noodle i particularly like this one call : 

Mak's Noodle (麥奀雲吞麵) @ Jordan, Hong Kong
Address: 55, Parkes Street, Jordan, Hong Kong.

So simple but super good. The best out of all the few shops that i have tried during my trip.
There are actually two Mak's noodle at Jordan street, make sure you go to the one at the end right.

3) Milk Pudding ( Yee Shun Milk Company )

This is so freaking good. I actually eaten 4 times during my 2 trips to HK back to back.
Personal preference i love dine at the branch near Jordan area thank Mongkok.
Less crowded, good service, lovely people ( yes HK people is nice ok ), and clean!

So don't get confused when you're there. There are one called Australia Daily Company.
Super long ass queue outside of the shop. But the milk wasn't as good as Yee Shun. 
Too sweet, the spoon is dirty AF. I had mine that is from previous user where there is still
stains of leftover milk pudding on it. Seriously i'm angry. So i will never go back.
In Yee Shun Milk company u can try the original milk pudding and also the one with ginger.
Love it so much if you had it on a cold day. Hot one will be best tasted. 
Address: 63 Pilkem St, Jordan, Hong Kong

4) Cart Noodle 車仔麵 

Cart noodle is a kind of a la carte noodle in HK.
( Thanks wikipedia in helping me to explain this. )
The price of the noodle is very depending on what kind what you choose to eat.
Like mine i had fish balls, beef balls, radish and octopus.
Address: G/F, 27A Sugar Street, Causeway Bay

5) HK Breakfast style

HK western style kind of breakfast is including ham and cheese macaroni or never the less tomato soup based macaroni with eggs, toasted bread with butter spread and a good cup of hot lemon tea or a lai cha ( Milk tea ).

I had this one at Mido Cafe 美都餐室, an oldest breakfast cha chan teng.
Been featured in Stephan chow movie before too! (Link)
Address: 63 Temple Street, Jordan. 
( More details to be blog very soon )

6) Dim Sum

The best one I had tried is at One Dim Sum 一點心
Address: Hong Kong, Prince Edward, Playing Field Rd, 
15號號 號 地舖 1-2 號 Kenwood Mansion

and the Baked Char Siew Pao  at Tim Ho Wan.

7 )  Claypot Rice

You can have the famous claypot rice at Temple Street. There is so many choices
you can get for your own. Like mine i had this salted fish pork belly rice.

8)  Sing Kee Dai Pai Dong at Stanley Street, Central (盛記大排檔)

It's very hard to find some find some good old wok hei kinda hawker food at HK.
This one call Sing Kee is pretty good and famous for the local and tourist.
Be ready for some queues and squeeze yourself among others to get a table.

Address: 82 Stanley Street Central Hong Kong

I'll probably add a more in this list in the future.
Hope you enjoy my recommendation :)
