AAA Restaurant 麗記 recently opened in Richmond just a few doors down from Lido Restaurant 麗都餐廳. It took over the old space where Kam Ho 金豪麵家 used to be at 8053 Alexandra Road. Fans of Lido (me included) seem to be either happy for an alternative or […]

Tsui Wah Restaurant 翠華餐廳 is a cafe chain cafe located throughout Hong Kong. It serves up comfort food catered to the Chinese palate. During peak hours, expect to share tables. The flagship restaurant in Central has three stories. Sorry no elevators. Order like a local and try their milk tea served in their signature doll face painted mugs. Then order their infamous condense milk toast 奶油豬, soup noodles and fried rice dishes like Kagoshima Pork cartilage and spinach shrimp dumplings with fish soup and vermicelli, and fish ball rice noodles.
Kagoshima Pork cartilage and spinach shrimp dumplings with fish soup and vermicelli: The soup is rich and flavorful. But, wow the pork cartilage just melts and is deeply marinated with soy and herbs. The addition of the shrimp dumpling was great mix. Because God forbid I only eat one ingredient and get bored too easily.
Fish Ball and Fish Cake Rice Noodle: A bit of Chiu Chow with bouncy fish balls and a dense broth. Really one bowl is not enough.
Burger Slider: To advertise this as a burger was a sin. It is no bigger than your regular slider and the side of fries had 6 pieces. When was the last time you were able to count your fry. The downer was it was dry and lacked seasoning.

Ilan Cafe Bar (formerly Jem Bar and Lounge), is a chic relaxed bar in the hoods of LKF (Lan Kwai Fong) in Central, Hong Kong. We stumbled here on a quite Monday night (God, how great it is to be on vacation), late after dinner. Normally, we’re told they have live acoustic music here.
The streets were quite and we were thankful for being able to sit down, enjoy a hookah (or three) without being rushed, pushed, or bulldozed over.
A glass of Riesling always goes well during those hot
Don’t forget to check-in with Foursquare to unlock a free shooter.
Another great place for great scenery and hookah is at Vibes, at The Mira Hong Kong Hotel.

Macau Paradise Restaurant 澳門樂園茶餐廳 is located in Kowloon City on Fuk Lo Tsun Road. It is near Tei Mou Koon 地茂館甜品 and Mini Bangkok 小曼谷泰國美食 九龍城. This Hong Kong style cafe probably isn’t the cheapest or the tastiest. Service is average as is the food quality.
Dave ordered a set meal with sausage instant noodles, fried eggs and toast. It comes with a hot milk tea for $40 HKD. The meal came quickly. Perfect if you are in a rush.
The only problem was, I wasn’t hungry. I only wanted a drink. A single cup milk tea alone is half the cost of a full meal. So the catch 22 problem exists: Do I order another full meal to get my dollars worth? Or sacrifice and pay for a cup of milk tea for $20 HKD?
But I wasn’t hungry. I paid $20 HKD.

Steamed Milk Pudding or Steamed Milk with Two Films 雙皮奶 shuang pi nai is one of the most popular Chinese dessert in Hong Kong. It is generally a steamed milk pudding 炖奶 dun nai. Other names may include steamed milk with egg white, steamed milk with ginger juice, double milk skin, double boiled steamed milk… or however you’d like to fathom the literally translation. Steamed Milk with Two Films is made of milk, egg white and sugar. It can be served hot or cold. I personally prefer hot steamed milk pudding. During our trip to Hong Kong, I was told Australia Dairy Company Hong Kong 澳洲牛奶公司 had the best shuang pi nai. But seeing how it was such a Hong Kong tourist attraction, I believe Yee Shun Dairy Company 港澳義順牛奶公司 is smoother.
For $25 HKD (approx $3 CAD), this was a steal to sit down and relax over some deliciously silky smooth pudding. Similar to a tofu pudding, Yee Shun Dairy Company HK Steamed Milk Puddings are creamier and has a sweetened milk fragrance. With eat bite, I hope that my skin will also be transformed to that of a new born’s. So I tried to recreate this at home with a simple steamed ginger milk custard recipe. Many things can go wrong and you will be easily disappointed. Often this milk won’t set properly or you will overcook the milk. With this step by step recipe, you will master the two step process of boiling and cooling down the milk.
Of course, like most Hong Kong Cafes, Yee Shun Dairy Company Hong Kong also offers cha chaan teng dishes like creamy egg and ham sandwich. Always toasted. Always no crust. Look at just how juicy this whole egg toast is!
Please let me know in the comments below if you know where the best steam milk pudding is in Hong Kong!! I would love to add it to my list for my next trip!
