19.12.2016


This day we covered:
* One Dim Sum
* Yau Ma Tei 油麻地
* Four Season Claypot Rice


As I had mentioned in the first post, we lived above One Dim Sum 一点心.  Logically, it's super convenient, but what happened was really stupid.
Since my hubby normally wakes up much earlier than me, I 千交代万交代 him the night before to check out the queue.  Queue for us and call us when it's our turn, or reserve a table if possible, do whatever he can to get us a table for brunch.  At 9am, he came back reporting to me that there's no queue, no problem.  So I happily packed up the luggage, while he shake his leg.  Checked out around 10am.

The whole family went down and there was a queue of about 20pax.

I was FUMING MAD!!!

We queued like a bunch of stupid fools for about half an hour just to realise that it's not a queue, it's just a row of people sitting down waiting with queue numbers they had collected.  He could had gotten a queue number for us but he didn't.  He said he didn't know.  All I wanted to do was to twist his head off his neck!

I sat there, not able to say a word, cos I knew if I opened my mouth, I'd scream instead of talk.  He could had gotten a queue number, we could all wait at home in comfort then go down when it's near our turn right??!!

To cool myself down, I inhale exhale, inhale exhale, counting my breaths as if I was giving birth.

All thanks to him, we stayed above but queue for an hour which we need not.  Not funny.... Haiz..... Rant end, enjoy the food pics below.

We finally sat in after an hour.

The place wasn't big, tables were limited.  The crews were all very politely which was a pleasant surprise to me.
  Normally neighbourhood eatery crews, they want serve fast and will scream from one end to the other, slammed dishes onto tables etc... But nothing like such happened here.  Service at One Dim Sum was fast with nice "gentle" crews.

Pork + Preserved Veg Porridge 菜干咸骨粥 HKD19.00
Home cooked taste of smooth savoury porridge which I could had easily finish the whole bowl by myself.

Corn Porridge 玉米粥 HKD16.00
My kids love this sweet corn porridge.  It's very comforting especially when the weather was cool.

Carrot Cake 萝卜糕 HKD15.00
Crunchy bit of chinese sausages inside was perfect with soft carrot cake.  Nice and with slight crisp on the outside, not oily.

Siew Mai 烧卖 HKD25.00
They were fresh and juicy, some how different from what we have in Singapore which were very enjoyable....

Curry Cuttlefish 咖喱鱿鱼 HKD22.00
The only right curry we had in Hong Kong, correct texture, mid spicy level, yummy fat cuttlefish and I am making myself drool here....

Har Kaow 虾饺 HKD26.00
Can you see the fat prawns beneath the translucent thin skin? Heeheehee.... :P~~

Char Siew Buns 叉烧包 HKD14.00
Fluffy soft buns, char siew on the sweet side with lots of sauce.

Mango Custard Rolls 香芒奶皇卷 HKD26.00
This was a dessert, chewy like mochi.

Fried Eggs with Honey 古法炸蛋散 HKD18.00
Ordered this cos the name of the dish caught my attention.  It became too sweet and too jelat for the 4 of us to finish.

Worth a visit for the cheap and nice dim sum with friendly service.  If you are interested to visit, here's the address:
One Dim Sum 一点心
Prince Edward, Playing Field Rd, 15號號 號 地舖 1-2 號 Kenwood Mansion

After brunch we walked to Moko Shopping Mall, cos it looked near enough from the map.  I think we were on the wrong route, when we finally reached, I nearly die of leg pain.



We actually bought StarWars movie tickets, S$100 for the 4 of us and I swear I will never do it again.  HUNDRED DOLLARS le!!!  But it did save my leg a little.

Before the movies I crippled my way around their supermarket and foodcourt.

Nothing much in the mall so we didn't stay after the movie ended.  We took train from MongKok Station (旺角东) to Yau Ma Tei (油麻地).


We spotted 2 competitors selling Claypot Rice.  We decided to follow the crowd.... We gotten a table without queuing, leaving the snake queue to form behind us the moment we went in, phew.....


Duck egg oyster omelette.
Couldn't remember the price but I was sure it's not expensive and worth it!

It's a crispy cake of duck egg omelette packed with lots of little oysters.  Must eat while it's hot else it became soggy when it's cold.

Chicken with chinese sausage.

Pork Ribs.
We couldn't find any dark sauce to go with so we had the claypots rice plain and pale.  While the chicken and pork ribs were very tender, the pots were bland enough for the sick.  So my experience was very different from the other bloggers who raved until wave high..... haiz.....

After dinner we roamed around aimlessly at Temple street.

Found another outlet of Yee Shun Milk Company.

We sat in.


Chocolate Milk Pudding (cold) HKD33.00
Looking ugly here, but was delicious.

Original Milk Pudding HKD33.00
Was as yummy as the one we had in Macao.

Went back to the apartment to meet up with our AirBnb host to pick up our luggage.  We were thankful that he helped us to keep our luggage after check out till the time we were ready to leave for the airport.

We went to Hong Kong Airport by cab.

Had this Snowman Mocha HKD26.00 at Mcdonald's .

Not too good Pan Fried Dumplings at HKD34 from Ajisen Ramen.

I snoozed my way on the night flight so no pics of the airplane food.  My boys ate but didn't bother to take pics either.

I ended our Hong Kong trip in great pain.  It was so bad that I got better only recently.  I limped for a couple of months visiting X2 family doc and X2 chinese physician.

Now that all pains are over, I had arranged a get fat short trip to Malacca in June, heehee.....
