Ok, i'll be sure to drop by Tao Heung next trip for dim sum! I dont have any particular favourite dim sum, basically i take (sorry dont have a chinese keyboard) egg tarts, wu kok, hum sui kok, har kow, siew mai, etc. Apart from dim sum, i also like the cha chan teng food. Use to drop by the cha chan teng at Parkes Street (diagonally opposite the Mai Wen Ji Wanton Noodle). The home cooked styled dishes are mouth watering. Salted fish with minced pork, ham vegetable soup, xo sauce scallop, prawns, etc.!

Speaking of Cha Chan Teng, i was looking forward to find this one at Tai Koo. Its a Macau Cha Chan Teng which is supposed well known, featured in the HK Tai Koo Mei Sek food program. Unfortunately, the program did not show the exact address, just that its located at Tai Koo Shing Rd. Some well known dishes are Macau salted fish, pork chop bun, etc. I hunted high and low but could not find it. Any ideas?

Thks!!!

Thanks Limeiyan1231! Looks like its not so well reviewed huh? Guess must always take those Food Programs review with a huge dose of salt!

I really must take my hats off to u, u seem to know HK very well (not all Hong Kongers are knowledgeable of places, especially for food). During my last trip in HK, i actually have Hong Kongers approaching me for directions instead! You must either always be travelling around hunting for good food or u must be pretty resourceful!

Hmm...I dun think wax museum is must go place. Just depends will you go peak once. if yes.. i suggest you may go waxmuseum as well, coz it at the same place, just go wax museum and beleive it or not. Can spend you around half day at peak.
http://www.nwstbus.com.hk/routes/rou...ID=1&daytime=3
You can by bus from Causeway Bay or central to Peak, pls browse above info. NO#15 or 15B

Yes...Cantonses restaurant = cha chan ting. Worth to try once. If you like sweet stuff, pls go cha chan ting and try "Sai Dor Si 西多士

"

Nowadays you can get by with mandarin as there's mainland Chinese visitors everywhere. There's English signs everyone.

shoppin questions!!

another shoppin question!!
sorry to trouble u guys,

but i hv read from the HongKong trip thread.. alot of ppl seem to mention about those factory warehouses at Yip Fatt Building or somewhere along tat..

Are those factories still open n selling stuffs or are they actually closed ? nobody seems to updating the info on tat, so i am not really sure..
So i guess it will be helpful to ask the local HK'er here!!

i saw the www.twist.hk website.. it helps! thanks!
can u recommend any other places tat sells branded goods at affordable prices ?

Thanks a lot!!

normally when travelling in HK, i get a PEOPLE prepaid sim card to put my fone. costs only HKD60 (if price still remains the same). easily available from any 7-11 stores. anytime cheaper than using roaming services.
