Lola's Cafe Singapore, Simon Road

If you're into the cafe hopping scene, Lola's cafe would be no stranger to you. Located near the entrance of Simon Road, a stone away from Kovan MRT station. They're known for their long waiting time, I've heard the longest was up to 4 hours during the weekend crowd.

What I like about Lola's cafe is, they offers pretty decent main courses all below $16. Brunch menu (10am-3pm) and dinner (6pm-10pm) are rather affordable, being wallet friendly. You would know that dining at cafes these days isn't cheap at all, a typical big breakfast plate can cost you up to $28.

The weather was so hot and humid during the August period when we were there. And so the second day of our trip was to mainly eat and shop, cover mainly Mongkok and Causeway Bay.

Hong Kong isn't an unfamiliar place to me, as this is probably my fifth time to the land of dim sum. You'll find that my 6D5N itinerary for this trip is probably the most relaxed one ever, reason being is I brought my parents along for this trip. So it's probably shopping, eating, sight-seeing and eat again.

We were booked on Singapore Airlines for direct flight to Hong Kong. There was a promotion going on and it's only SGD297 per person for a return ticket including 30kg baggage. It's hell cheap! And it's on A380 Airbus which has double deck but unfortunately it was sold out so we were back down.
