Food Adventures in HK Year 2011,2012,2013 – The Ultimate HK Best Eat List (HK Island) & The Ultimate HK Best Eat List (Kowloon)
Last time this year, we were in Hong Kong for work. In between work and meetings, we managed to squeeze time to do what we do best – food hunting. We spent a few nights staying in the same hotels in Tsim Tsa Tsui so naturally we got to try a few famous eateries in Tsim Tsa Tsui.
One of them was Sun Kee, an old school cha chan teng hidden amongst some second hand camera shops in a dodgy looking building located along Kimberly Road, Tsim Tsa Tsui. The shop façade is difficult to miss as the glass wall and entrance is being plastered by numerous photos of celebrities endorsing their signature cheese sauce instant noodles.
The small shop can seat a maximum of 20 pax. We were lucky to have a whole table to ourselves at 6pm. The perks of dining here during odd hours.
We started off with some 蜜汁龍鬚 Squid Tentacles Coated with Sweet Sticky Sauce (HKD 41). I enjoyed the look and texture of the plump looking tentacles – toothy yet tender – but found the dressing a little too sweet. However, KampungBoy loves it as he happily ate more than half of the bowl.
Here comes the cheese sauce instant noodles with grilled pork neck. Upon first inspection, it looked rather unappetizing with the messy glug of cheese sauce.
However, as they said, do not judge a book by its cover. The secret lies in the home made cheese sauce with coats each sand every strand of noodles evenly, resulting in a gooey and sinful sensation. The sauce was delicious with a mild and nice salty after taste.
The grilled pork neck was tender and flavourful too! The ‘jelak-ness’ hitted us after a while as they must have use quite a fair bit of corn starch in the sauce. For HKD41 a bowl, most of my Hong Kong friends have stopped patronizing this place as they think that it does not come cheap.

In Hong Kong, the tong sui culture is so strong that dinner is often accompanied with dessert. Lined by more than 5-6 dessert specialty shops, Hau Fook Street in Tsim Tsa Tsui is like a dessert street.
Most of the shops here sell traditional and creative local sweet treats. The menu offers freshly squeezed fruit juices, authentic sweet Chinese soup, ice cream and even chocolate lava cake. We went to China Town Dessert has this one has the least waiting time.
Our order of sweet peanut soup and momozhzha 摩摩喳喳 （taro, sweet potatoes and sago in coconut milk) was decent, nothing to shout about.
However, the Taiwanese mochi stood out. It was smooth and soft with rich coating of aromatic ground peanuts. There was also a light hint of ginger taste to it.
