Hong Kong 2010 - Lunch at Hung Fah Lau Cafe

When in Hong Kong, don't overlook the many small eateries which dot the streets expecially in Kowloon and Tsim Sha Tsui. You will be surprised to find that some of them serve really good food at reasonable prices. We passed this small hole-in-the-wall cafe many times on our way to the MRT, and on our last day decided to go there for lunch.

The cafe is called Hang Fah Lau - it seemed to be part of a chain. The place is tiny, but as usual in Hong Kong they had a comprehensive menu. Many of the menu items were pasted on the wall.

We ordered a few dishes to go with rice. The steamed rice stuffed with bits of vegetable was really good. You get carbo and fibre at the same time.

Stewed Pork Ribs in Bean Sauce. Fall-0ff-the-bone tender and full of umami goodness.

Pork Chop - nicely done with a tasty sauce.

Fried noodles - this was done with instant noodles and not very good.

The cafe also served a large selection of Tong Shui (Chinese Soupy Deserts), so we ordered two to try. Lotus Seeds with Barley - very nice.

Tau Foo Fah - steamed silky tofu - very smooth.

The next time you are in Hong Kong, give some of these small places a try and you may be pleasantly surprised.
