Hong Kong: Yeung Uk Road Market

Despite all my posts on this blog, we love to cook our food and eat at home. 🙂 We still think there’s no simpler way to save money and know what’s in your food than to go to the wet market!

This is less than a kilometer away from our flat here in Hong Kong and it’s got almost everything we need; from veggies to meat and poultry to seafood.

Here’s how it looks outside:

They have repainted this in the past few months–it wasn’t this nice when I was young!:-P

Here’s the floor where vegetables and fruits are sold:

Here’s where we buy our beef (unless we need it for steak! We buy our steak from fusion.):

Finally, here’s the level where live seafood are sold. My husband and I love seeing fresh and live seafood and many times, I have been wet by fish that wiggle their way out of shallow water or the man that picks them to be killed! Haha..tons of fun!

That ends our very short tour of the market we go to everyweek!:)

Hong Kong: Brunch Club [Central]

My husband and I love our lazy Saturdays. Today, after my doctor’s appointment, we went to Central’s Brunch Club. We usually go to the one in Causeway Bay but since we were already in the area, we went to this branch.

On the outside, it’s very very pretty!

But inside, we find the Causeway Bay branch more cozy. 🙂 Nevertheless, their Carbonara is still sooooo yummy! This was my inspiration for my recipe post.

My husband loves his burgers and this time he ordered the Foodlink burger which has bacon, cheese and angus beef. It was yummy but I prefer their lamb burger.

We also had hot chocolate drinks — can’t remember the names of these drinks but they were something like marshmallow & cinnamon and chocolate banana.

For dessert, we had the Chocolate belgian waffles. Hmmm..when I tasted this at the other branch, it was much better — that had more cream and it was just more tasty!

Our bill was HKD 355.00 and that’s money well spent because you can relax in this place and just love how everyone else is taking their time in enjoying their food. 🙂

We had to take this photo outside because we found this very funny sign that says: Please mind your head (if a hobbit)

And here is how the neighborhood looks! 🙂 Like San Francisco — up a hill! 🙂


Hong Kong: Genki Sushi

This is a Japanese fast food chain here in Hong Kong that my husband and I absolutely love! We come here at least once a month and here are our most favorite sushi/roll.They have a conveyor belt which is really cool (just in case you were wondering! :-))

They have green tea and hot water in each table or every 3 seats along the conveyor belt.

My husband’s favorite hand roll is the Soft Shell Crab Roll.

My favorite hand roll is the Salmon Skin Roll.

These are the sushi/roll that are always present in our every visit. Genki Sushi Roll, Fried Shrimp Roll and Seared Salmon Sushi.

All that for just HKD 154.00!

Next time you’re in Hong Kong, you could drop by here and taste these very delicious sushi.
