Picture updates of Hong Kong! Part 5 of 5!

We came upon these statues in the middle of Central (close to the market), so I had to take some pictures with them!

And here's the classic alleyway in Hong Kong, where vendors would set up tables and plastic stools on a side street.

We went to the Mochi Cafe in Tsim Sha Tsui for some awesome handmade udon!  We ordered some appetizers to start, and found that their tempura yam was quite unique.  They wrapped the yam first in ham before dipping it in tempura batter.

Below left, is the yummy cold udon with side of pork; right, is the classic beef in soupy udon!  What's really good here besides the handmade udon, is the fact that they serve their soupy noodles in stone bowls, which means that it'll remain hot and steamy til the last bite!

And here, you can see Kel slurping down his spicy pork udon!

I spent a few days staying over at my godparents', and my godmom and I went shopping around Tsuen Wan on one of those days.  I never knew there was a park this nice in the middle of it!  Apparently, it was funded by the Hong Kong Jockey Club.

A mall I enjoy walking around is CityWalk in Tsuen Wan because the layout reminds of malls in Japan (like LaLaPort in Tokyo), where there's a green space in the middle!

On our last night in Hong Kong, we had dinner at Peking Garden in Tsim Sha Tsui.  One of the unique dishes they had was Beggar's Chicken, where they marinate the chicken, wrap it in layers of lotus leaves, tie it up, wrap it in tin foil, and then encase it in mud and baked!

Below left, you can see Kel's uncle and cousin getting ready to break open the mud baked chicken; right, the many layers after it's been opened.

  1. Wow!! Your photos are amazing!!! I wish I could go to Hong Kong one day :) Thank you for visiting my blog and leaving such a sweet comment! The curbing that we had done was actually done by a company called Curb King, you just tell them what kind of curves you would like and they make the concrete molds and do it! Our yard was under $1000 (Canadian) for the job. Hope this helps you!
