Breakfast and Lunch, Hong Kong

1) Breakfast

Checked with the staff at the hotel that we staying to recommend us for a good "Cha Chan Teng" around Causeway Bay area for our breakfast, he suggested this cafe which just nearby the SOGO shopping mall.


-Pineapple bun (Polo bun), nothing special, and just realized there is no pineapple added even the name called as Pineapple bun, strange huh..

-Thought Hong Kong has the best Milk Tea, but this one we tried was quite dissapointed, maybe we have not tried the best one in Hong Kong.

2) Lunch

Thinking to take Japanese food for late lunch at Nobu Intercontinental Hotel which Mia recommended, but they was closed because we reached there about 4pm. No choice, we went to a Chinese restaurant in a nearby shopping complex.

-This was the 1st roast goose that we ate in Hong Kong, but the taste just normal only, like those roast duck selling here, quite dissapointed. The menu said crispy roast goose, but the skin totally not crispy at all.
-Sorry, the quality of this series photos are quite bad, because I'm too hungry at that time (4pm), hands keep shaking, hehehe..

-We also ordered crispy roast pork, and this was very good and the skin was super crispy, the best one I have had. And some green veggie and Eel fried with honey , normal only.

- This steamed chicken was not good too, very thick layer of oil, and I can buy 2 bird of chickens for the price that I paid for this plate of drumstick size of chicken..

Polo bun in HK is awesome! Especially polo bun with butter!

Like Mia, I like the look of the beef instant too, looks much better than the one I cook, ha!

That's the thing about travel food photography, usually the stomach can't wait for you to finish taking photos...hehehe...but I think you did a great job.

Though the first few photos looks ok but it's a bit yellowish, the dinner photos turn out better. You can take care of that with the "white balance" setting on your camera. Try different setting and see how it turns out. Then again, when you're traveling, sometime it's hard to mess with the setting when you're hungry for food, ha! Have fun!
