Hong Kong, Macau

27th Aug 2012, Monday (4 years ago)

Been to Hong Kong 15 years ago, while I still watching a lot of Hong Kong TVB dramas. I’m pretty surprise much of locals can speak Mandarin, not so accurate though but understand, so communication was not a problem for me. Hong Kong local’s lifestyles combine the best of Chinese and Western cultures making Hong Kong’s local culture unique. And here I am for food and shopping and experience walk fast, eat fast, speak fast, and live fast.

It’s gonna be a post with lot of food pictures and you don’t wanna do this to yourself when you’re hungry. As expected the foods here is not cheat, our first dim sum in Hong Kong. Then we try a great piece of siu yuk 脆皮燒肉, five-layer roast pork with top layer of crackling skin, the morsels are served with sharp yellow mustard to cap off an overwhelming experience of textures and flavors all rendered from a humble slice of pork belly. Serve with sauce made of Soy sauce and Sugar.

The Landmark 置地廣場 is an office and shopping development owned by Hong Kong Land in Central 中環. It is commonly known as the home of numerous prestigious international brands like Celine, Loewe, Gucci, Joyce Boutique, Hermès, and Harvey Nichols, among others. The hushed atrium café is the best place in town to watch well-coiffed tai-tais on the prowl.

Yung Kee Restaurant 鏞記酒家 is a Chinese Cantonese restaurant re owned for its Roasted Goose. A legend in Hong Kong and one that definitely couldn’t afford to miss and it has been reported that they sell as many as 300 Geese per day! A large crowd of people queuing inside the restaurant, we were assigned a number and told to come back 1 hour later. Yung Kee Restaurant is good but so far, the most pricey of the restaurants I went to.

Just an hour away by ferry and with visa free for most tourists, anyone in Hong Kong for more than a few days should spend the time to see the Portuguese heritage in Macau. Like Vegas, Macau is all about big brands in gigantic malls, so if you are interested in getting your fix of luxury goods, head off to The Venetian. The world class brands do carry a larger variety of styles than other countries.
