[Hong Kong] Satay King (沙嗲王)

Image Hosted by ImageShack.usLocation Review
4th Floor,Wu Sang House,No. 655 Nathan Road, Mong Kok

After a day of shopping with Rob, we went to look for some dinner. I guess by now you can tell this is a common routine for me... Anyways, I did a quick look on Open Rice (which is basically the Urbanspoon of Hong Kong) and chose the highest ranking restaurant close to where we were. Random restaurant venturing? I'm down.

[Hong Kong] Street Style Noodles @ 川婆婆串串香

Shop G20, GI MAIl, 34 Granville Road, Tsim Sha Tsui
尖沙咀加連威老道34號GI Mall G20號舖

One of the great things about Hong Kong, is that there is literally food everywhere. One day when I was shopping with some girlfriends, amidst all the "exercise" we were getting, we grew hungry and decided to go on a street food hunt. We had a couple of snacks, before stumbling on a tiny store selling cart style noodles.

[Hong Kong] Suzuki Cafe Company (鈴木珈啡館)

Location Review:
Shop L407, 4/F, The ONE, 100 Nathan Road, Tsim Sha Tsui
尖沙咀彌敦道100號The ONE 4樓L407號舖

This location of Suzuki Cafe Company is located in my favourite malls in Hong Kong. It's just under a year old, so everything is nice and new inside! While there are lots of nice luxurious malls to occupy yourself with in Hong Kong, for whatever reason I really like this one. Perhaps it's because it's a massive 30 story building (making it the tallest shopping complex in Hong Kong) with 25 floors, of which 15 of those have food and restaurants! But it's not only that, there's also some clothing brands I really like there, but that's a story for another type of blog. So lets get back to Suzuki Cafe.

[Hong Kong] Tsui Wah (翠華餐廳)

Image Hosted by ImageShack.usLocation Review: 
493 - 495, Jaffe Road,
Causeway Bay, Hong Kong

Tsui Wah is a very popular Hong Kong style restaurant that currently has a handful of locations across Hong Kong. Being relatively affordable and open 24 hours, it's a popular spot for getting a snack or meal during the off hours. Don't go expecting stellar service and a fancy dining room though. Like typical Hong Kong style tea restaurants, the selling point here is a place to grab decent, quick, and affordable food.

[Hong Kong] Genki Sushi (元気寿司)

Location Review: 
Shop 115-116, 1/F, Fortune City One, Shatin, Hong Kong

Though its lost a bit of its hype and popularity, conveyor belt sushi is still one of my faves. While there are lots of places to have conveyor belt sushi in Hong Kong, I always end up coming back to Genki because it's close to where I live and can satisfy the sudden cravings. For those unfamiliar with the concept, conveyor belt sushi (also referred to as rotating sushi, 回転寿司), is where plates of sushi are placed on a conveyor belt and rotate around a circular belt structured to reach all or most of the dining guests of the restaurant. Sushi chefs continually replenish the belt, and the bill is settled based on the amount and type of sushi ordered (usually distinguished by the colour of the plate). Of course, if you are impatient to wait and watch for your item to come around the belt, there is an a la cart menu for sushi, as well as set meals.

[Hong Kong] Hung Kee Seafood Restaurant (洪記海鮮酒家)

Hung Kee Seafood Restaurant (洪記海鮮酒家)
Shop 6; 9-10, G/F, Siu Yat Building, Sai Kung Hoi Pong Square, Sai Kung

Sai Kung is an well known area for having seafood. Sai Kung Town was once a fishing village, and despite the fact it's more modernized now, the harbour is still a place where much of the seafood served at near by restaurants are caught. The restaurants are situated on a street all along the harbour, and due to the proximity, the street definitely reeks of fish and salt water. But that's a small price to pay for the delicacies that are served. Amongst the many restaurants, we end up going to Hung Kee Seafood Restaurant based on friend referral. I love walking by each restaurant and just gazing at their gigantic tanks of seafood on display. It makes ordering easy too; you can literally point to the specific one you want and specify how you want it cooked. Since you're picking ingredients on a hungry stomach, you can bet you'll more than likely over order -everything looks so tasty!

[Hong Kong] Circle K -Microwavables

I admit, a convenience store is probably not the most conventional place to do a food blog post on. But one hurried morning, I was forced to have a quick breakfast (or more like a snack to tie me over) at a local Circle K convenience store. If you're unfamiliar with Hong Kong, Circle K is exactly like a 7-eleven offering common convenience store items: magazines, drinks, cigarettes, candy, alcohol, and most importantly,  cooked and microwave food! They even have a microwave equipped on site for immediate consumption. I can't even count the number of times I came here to grab something because they are also densely located. There is one at almost every corner of the city!

[Hong Kong] Aji Ichiban (味一番)

22-28 Hillwood Road
Tsim Sha Tsui, Hong Kong
山林道22-28號, 尖沙咀

Not to be confused with the popular Hong Kong snack chain Aji Ichiban, this post is actually about a Japanese restaurant! One of the more exciting aspects about being in Hong Kong for me, is having Japanese food. Literally being surrounded by water, there is an abundant amount of fish and other seafood, making it so affordable to have good raw fish! One of my friend's dad brought us here, and is a regular customer so he ended up making most of the ordering choices for the night.

[Hong Kong] Super Fast Food

Location Review:
Shop 108, 1/F, City One Plaza,
1 Ngan shing Street, Sha Tin, Hong Kong

As a first meal of the first day in Hong Kong, Rob and I decided to have a Hong Kong style breakfast in the plaza below my appartment. Just like the name of the restaurant may hint, this place is less of a restaurant and more so fast food. You order, get a chit, pass your chit to a lady behind a food counter which resembles a cafeteria serving station, and then wait for your food to be made.
