DIM SUM BREAKFAST AT HAK KA HUT, NGAU TAU KOK ROAD, HONG KONG

Hong Kong, Day 2 - Breakfast

As usual, I do not usually sleep well when I am on holidays. It was a night of drifting in and out of sleep. On the first morning when I opened my eyes, I though I overslept. The room was bright and I quickly checked the time on my mobile phone. It showed 5.50 am. I double checked with the clock in the hall and it confirmed 5.50 am! At home in Ipoh, 5.50 am will not be this bright, it will still be dark.
I looked out from our bedroom window and at 5.50 am, this was how it looked like. To me it looked like about 7 am to me.

We were all up and ready by the time Pete, our Hong Kong host cum tourist guide arrived at the apartment. The apartment is equipped with a lovely recreational and community garden.

And also a children's playground. The whole place is clean and well maintained.

I like the well-planned spacious recreational space allocated for the comfort of the residents of the apartments.

We reached the dim sum restaurant before 8 am. It was walking distance from where we stayed. Pete immediately placed booking for a table for 7 people. This was the ticket or coupon - waiting to be seated.
We passed by the open kitchen.

We get to see the people at work in the kitchen.

A very busy place, preparing food for the customers.
Restaurant was packed with customers. Hong Kong is famous for dim sum, a must try when in Hong Kong.

Sharing table is a common practice in Hong Kong.
These saucers caught our attention. They were specially designed to hold the chopsticks in place.

We ordered both a mild and a strong Chinese Pu Erh Tea. It is a norm to be served an extra pot of hot water without asking for it.

Sweet pumpkin cakes.

Hong Kong Chee Cheong Fun with BBQ Pork Filling. (Steamed flat rice noodle rolls).

Pan Fried Steamed White Radish Cake.

Teochew Dumplings.

Glutinous Rice with Chicken Meat wrapped in Lotus Leaf.
Which is another version of our local Loh Mai Kai in Cantonese.

Steamed Tofu with Minced Meat Stuffing.

Steamed Chicken Meat with Brinjal cubes, fish maw, mushroom, etc.

Steamed Pork Rib with Tofu Puffs, etc.

Mild Spicy XO Sauce and Sweet Sauce.

We had our dim sum breakfast at Hak Ka Hut, a Hakka Chinese Dim Sum Restaurant at Ngau Tau Kok Road.

After a sumptious dim sum breakfast, we are ready to meet up with the other group members for a day of sightseeing.

See what the land is like and whether the people

who live there are strong or weak, few or many.

What kind of land do they live in? Is it good or bad?

What kind of towns do they live in?

Are they unwalled or fortified?

  5. I like dim sum but it is no longer as readily available here like in the old style where you sit and they wheel carts of food by your table. I've never seen the pork filled tofu. It looks good. Sounds like you are enjoying your time in Hong Kong. I seem to sleep better when I am on holiday. I get to sleep and wake up more consistently at the same times.

    1. Back home here in Ipoh, we get to sit and wait for the food cart to come to our table and we order. But in Hong Kong, we had to tick on the order form to order our food.

  17. The pumpkin one with cream is so unique. The second pic that looks like doughnut, had a bite taken out from the middle issit?

    The one problem I had with HK dimsum is... no chilli sauce haha. My problem, not theirs. Next time I will arm myself with a bottle of Kampung Koh before going. :)

    1. Stacy, the 2nd pic is the pumpkin cake that I used a pair of chopstick to open up to reveal the filling. You can't get chili sauce but they do serve xo sauce, slight spicy. I think its good idea to take along your own chili sauce.
