But fortunately we had a secret weapon in Hong Kong: Nee's soon-to-be cousin-in-law Gooi, who was most gracious to meet us & brought us around town. Without him, we wouldn't have found this place which was frequented by locals.
I feel like ballroom dancing already man... so very got the class.
Did you know that Hong Kong people eat their newspapers with dim sum?
Siew Mai ~ heay look they comes in fours
Savoury Puffs ~ Ham Shui Kok
Siao Long Bao
We weren't sure whether this was a Top Ten Dim Sum Box Office Billboard Chart Hit, but it was exactly what we were looking for. So on the 6th day of our trip in Hong Kong, we finally had some good dim sum. Time was running out, but we made it.
Knowing that we were avid food bloggers, Gooi kept the food program going. Immediately after the dim sum, we were shuffled to a place with fantastic Gui Ling Gao (Turtle Shell Jelly).
The shop is called Hoi Tien Tong & like many of the other dessert shops, it's a chain store.
I thought the table setup was quite pecular cos there was this little glass case with a yellow box on display right in the centre of the table, like a mini museum.
Obviously it must be one of their Gui Ling Gao Jelly inside. I just hope that there's no baby turtles inside when you open it up. Heheh, nolah. Before you start panicking, my guess is that Turtle Shell Jelly is probably named after some herbal ingredient that looks like turtle shells lah.
