Dinner at Fu Weng Seafood Restaurant in Kwun Tong

January 11, 2019:

We had dinner with some family friends at Fu Weng Seafood Restaurant in Kwun Tong. We ordered seven dishes to eat a la family style. The food was very good and the portions were reasonable.

I noticed there was a promotion for hot pot and a platter of sashimi in addition to ordering regular Cantonese dishes. Lots of large parties around us were induling in hot pot.

Reflexology at Cheerful Foot Spa Centre

January 11, 2019:

When looking for Tim Ho Wan the other day, we passed by a lot of ground level foot massage places. We prefer ground level massage places rather than ones where you have to go upstairs to a second floor or higher because you never know what goes on in unseen places (or so I’m told). We wanted to get a reflexology session to ease our sore feet and legs after walking nonstop each day so far on this trip.

While in the Tsim Sha Tsui area and passing 2 p.m., we stopped into Yuen Long Bistro (元朗冰室) for some Hong Kong style food. Earlier, we had passed by this Hong Kong style cafe at 1 p.m. and there was a line-up. I’m glad that we were able to get seated right away after the lunch rush hour had passed.

Irvins Salted Egg Snacks in Tsim Sha Tsui

January 10, 2019:

I had heard all about this “deliciously addictive” salted duck egg snack and was eager to try this out. I love, love, love eating fried fish skins and the fact that these were going to be coated with salted duck egg made me think I would enjoy these very much. (Every post I had seen on Instagram of foodies talking about it raved about it.) For sure, I had put Irvins Salted Egg snacks on my to-buy list when visiting Hong Kong.
