Honeymoon Dessert, 香港滿記甜品

At Hong Kong, the desserts are definitely be listed in my food-craving list. Honeymoon, one of the famous dessert shop at Hong Kong. I will share with you guys about the desserts from Hong Kong branch which is located at Langham Place, Mongkok; and the Singapore branch at Bugis Junction.



The Hong Kong outlet at Langham Place.




Too bad I didn't take any photo of Bugis outlet except the desserts there.



For durian-lovers, I strongly recommend this cold dessert, Durian Pancake, with the durian paste and cream in the "pillow". It is so nice until i was unable to take the picture on the paste before it slipped into my stomach. Haha..


Mango Pudding. Its specialty is that the "real" mango cubes can be found in the pudding instead of Nata de coco used by most of the other puddings.


There are too many desserts... I can't introduce them one-by-one. Better you guys find it out yourselves. lol..


Sesame paste & walnut paste.


Grass jelly in redbean soup with ice cream.


Mango in vanilla sauce with Thai black glutinous rice.


Mango pomelo sago.



Mixed fruits sago.

Finally... WOW, totally dark, can't even recognise it. Haha.. It is actually Sesame soup with redbean soup, with addition of dumpling. Don't judge it by its look, it is nice actually..



Since my visiting on various dessert shops, Honey Moon has got the most choices, many "creations" but those traditional desserts are retained. And the nice ambience makes me go for it again.

Tim Hou Wan Dim Sum Restaurant @ Mong Kok


For those who come to Hong Kong, don't miss this restaurant, Tim Hou Wan! This restaurant is owned by a former dim sum chef of Four Season Hotel, and is known as the cheapest Michelin star restaurant of the world!

To avoid the long queue, we arrived the restaurant in the early morning. But once we reached there, we was surprised by the crowd in front of the restaurant. After taking number, we place order by filling a form while waiting outside.





The restaurant is so small that we have to sit side by side with other people.

Anyway, space is not a big deal. The focus is on the dim sum!

Baked Char Siew Bun. The Char Siew bun are always steamed in our country, but at here, their signature bun is baked yet different from taste of bread.


Siew Mai.


Har gao.


Stewed chicken feet.



Glutinous rice in lotus leaf.


Steamed Noodle Rolls with Shrimps. Served with soy sauce.


Fried Shrimp Roll.


Osmanthus Cake. The cake is jelly-like and there are wolfberries in the cake.

Although the restaurant is very ordinary and small, but the food is superb! And due to size of the table and freshly preparation of dim sum, the dishes were served one-by-one. Luckily, we didn't order too many dishes so that we were able to finish all of them. The price is also reasonable and affordable! Really worth to go for it again! Anyway, Hong Kong Dim Sum can easily make people full. LOL...

The Sweet Dinasty, Tsim Sha Tsui, Hong Kong



After watching "Symphony of Lights" at the Avenue of Stars, we started our food hunting at Tsim Sha Tsui for our supper. Soon, we were able to find the famous dessert shop, The Sweet Dynasty.



During searching for the dessert shop, I was imaging about its appearance, which is small and tiny like other dessert shops. But when I reached the front door, I was kinda suprised by its appearance, it is nothing different with other luxury chinese restaurant.



The restaurant consists of 2 level, and the golden-themed decoration are very elegance too.





Let's start to eat!! :D


This is the food ordered. Let me introduce 1 by 1.


Tofu Pudding with Red Bean Soup


The pudding is silky smooth; The red bean soup isn't too sweet but there is a thin orange fragrance from the soup.

PS: Tofu pudding is a must-try food at Hong Kong!

Egg Tarts with Bird Nest

The skin of custards looks rough because of the bird nest as the topping. The pastry is very easily crumbled so do hold it very carefully!

Steamed Noodle Rolls with Shrimps

At Hong Kong, the rolls are always served with soy sauce which is different with the sweet sauce or chili sauce for Malaysia's one.

Chilled Bean Jelly with Fresh Mango & Fruits

The chefs use dry ice to create nice visual effect while keeping the dessert cold.


The fruits bring varieties of taste to the springy bean jelly, nice!

Although there was a lot of people in the restaurant, the food were still able to be served in a short period. There are not only snacks and dessert but also dim sum and other cooked food with reasonable price.

A Lorcha Portuguese Restaurant, Macau



The first thing to do once we reached Macau was looking for the Portuguese restaurant. Based on the information of locals, we were able to locate the famous restaurant -- A Lorcha. Unfortunately, I didn't enjoy the meal as i wasn't feeling well. T_T



The restaurant is very small but the ambience is very nice, with Portuguese decoration.



Octopuss Salad with Garlic, Parsley, and Olive Oil

The octopus is served raw by marinated with garlic, so there is a strong taste of garlic. But the looking of the appetizer is not attactive. lol

Spicy Charcoal-Grilled Chicken

This one is superb!!! The chicken is very fleshy and with its little chili spice on it, I had gain back my depleted appetite. Haha...

Macanese Coconut and Turmeric Chicken

Another "thumb-up" main course. The chicken in thick curry and coconut aroma. It is very nice to be served with plain rice.

We were surprised by the portion of the dishes which were served in big portion, each of them are suitable for 2 or 3 persons. The overall of the food is delectable except the appetizer.

The staffs are friendly and they have very nice service. This is the restaurant which shouldn't be missed in everyone's Macau trip. (",)

The China Club Singapore, Tanjong Pagar


"THE CHINA CLUB SINGAPORE"

I had my company lunch at this classy restaurant to celebrate birthday of my colleague. The restaurant is located at 50th floor of Capital Tower.


As all of the seats are arrange beside the window, people can have a stunning view on the city and the port.



Before the lunch was started, we were able to have little chit-chat while having some drinks.



The restaurant had prepared a private room for us.





Soon, we have our lunch started.

Combination of Roasted Meat and Dim Sum

I really like all of them especially the roasted meat on the upper left part. I found that there was a thin fragrance of wine within the roasted meat.

Double-boiled Seafood Soup in Mini Pumpkin
All of the seafood had been cut into tiny pieces. The soup is rich and the taste of pumpkin makes a good combination with the soup.

Sauteed Fresh Scallop & Sliced Empress Clam with XO Sauce
This is what a fresh scallop should be!! So tender and juicy. The XO sauce is kinda spicy, but I love it very much!!

Steamed Fillet of Sea Perch

The fish is very soft, and the taste is enhanced by the lily buds and wolfberries.

Longevity Ee-Fu Noodles
This dish is kinda inferior than other dishes because of the noodles which had lost its springiness.

Chilled Avocado Cream with Vanilla Ice Cream
This is the worst ice cream that I have ever met. First, the ice cream tasted like coconut more than vanilla, and it was "over fozen" until hard to be scooped by the spoon!!!

The ambience and location of the restaurant makes it a perfect place for fine dining or business dining. The food here didn't totally meet my expectation (the ice cream contributed the most) but it still costs about S$106 per person. (0.0)

Anyway, what a regret that the China Club is only opened for members. (",)
