Hong Kong 2014 Day 3 - Delicious Kitchen, Victoria Peak, Mongkok

Sorry for the backlog, been busy! Day 3 of my Hong Kong trip was a short day for me & my family. They key for today is to bring my parents shopping, sight-seeing and of course, eating! It's a hot and sunny day, so we take awhile to move from one place to another. Glad to able to catch a beautiful city view of Hong Kong!

For breakfast, we planned to dine at Delicious Kitchen 美味廚 where they are famous for Pork Ribs Vegetable Rice. Been hearing the hype about it and decided to bring my parents here. You can reach Delicious Kitchen via. Tsim Sha Tsui MTR Exit C2 or R.

Delicious Kitchen 美味廚
Add: G/F, 20-20A, Ashley Road, Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon
 Opening Hours: 11:00am - 10:00pm daily

Of course we ordered 2 portion of the Pork Rib w Vegetable Rice (45HKD), stir-fried vegetables and a bowl of fish soup. Didn't want to eat too full so that's all to share among the 4 of us.

Shall just talk about the Pork Rib since it's the highlight here. What I love - boneless! The texture were tender on the first bite, well marinated with flavors -  slightly similar to prawn paste. I'm not trying to exaggerate, but this is the best pork rib I had till date.

This is the store front so keep a look out after the exit :)

After breakfast, shopping at Harbour City Mall (海港城) which is similar to our Orchard road here in Singapore.

Add: 3–27 Canton Road, Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon, Hong Kong
Tsim Sha Tsui MTR, Exit A1
Opening Hours: 10:00am - 10:00pm

Walked over to the harbour to sightsee the Hong Kong city view, at the same vicinity of Avenue of Stars (星光大道). The Avenue of Stars is located in an easily accessible section along the Tsim Sha Tsui Promenade next to the southern end of Salisbury Garden. Or if you're coming from MTR, it's Tsim Sha Tsui MTR, Exit J

The iconic clock tower in Hong Kong, with my mini parents in it.

Other than the scorching sun, the view of Hong Kong city view is just stunning.

A selfie shot with my parents at the harbour front. This is my first trip with my parents without my siblings but I'm so glad they enjoyed it.

The sight of the police cops here reminds me of Hong Kong drama.

Moving on to the peak for Hong Kong's skyline as it's a first time for my parents. Been here a few times so I wouldn't come here again if not for my parents :P You can reach here by Central MTR, Exit J2 or K. There will be signage to guide you.

The pricing for the tram ride and sky pass which you will need to get access to the highest point. So usually it's advisable to get the 80HKD where you get the return tram ride too.

The tram was so crowded and I'm surprised they didn't have a limit count in the tram, they just let in as many people as possible. We were standing since no seats were left and please be careful as the ride gets steep in the mid way. You might just fall if you didn't hold on properly.

The spectacular view at the top, it probably sums up how Hong Kong looks like.

Peaceful and calm swamp at the other end, if the weather is cold - it's so much better.

This is where the selfie stick comes to good use, a we-fie shot at the peak!

A shot with my parents with the 2014 year in.

At the peak, there's the Peak Galleria where a few well known eateries is there. Such as Tai Cheong Bakery, Tsui Wah Restaurant and Mak's noodles. It's evening by then, so time for dinner!

Some signature dish which feature hor fun in yong tau foo and homemade fish balls - rather average but a good hangover dish I must say.

Can't get enough of this toast with condensed milk, it's sooo good!

Stir-fried Hong Kong noodles with the wok fragrant, tasty!

One of my favorite dish at Tsui Wah - basically crispy egg noodle topped with stir fried vegetables and chicken meat. Ahh so good, please try this (:

The building where the sky access is - yes at the peak.

Walked to where Tai Cheong Bakery (泰昌家) is, they are known for Hong Kong pastries and egg tarts, as well as different flavour egg tarts.

We got the egg tarts and the puff pastry base egg tart at 6HKD each. The tart flakes were so fresh, the egg were smooth and silky, this is the second best egg tart I had. I would probably try the blueberry or bacon one next time.

The night view at the peak, still looking stunning as usual.

And everyone rushing to get a seat on the tram, sigh safety comes first folks.

Dropped by to Mongkok for supper and some street shopping at sneakers street.

Brought my parents to Temple street in Mongkok to take a look, personally for me I feel that there's nothing interesting here. Probably an ideal place for some souvenirs but don't get slashed in cost! Some directions you may need,

» Temple Street:
Jordan MTR, Exit A, turn right onto Jordan Road & take another right onto Temple Street.

» Ladies Market:
Mong Kok MTR, Exit E2, walk along Nelson Street for two blocks.

» Fa Yuen Street aka Mong Kok Night Market:
Mong Kok MTR, Exit D3, walk along Argyle Street to Fa Yuen Street.

As usual getting our curry fish ball and favorite street food ji dan zai! Quite a short day for us as we had a lot of rest stops for my parents. We ended the night pretty early as well since we will be heading to Macau the next early morning!
