Dinner at Regal Terrace in Regal Riverside Hotel

September 9, 2017:  First night arrival in HK and we went to the Chinese restaurant, Regal Terrace, at Regal Riverside Hotel in Sha Tin for dinner (麗豪酒店) with my relatives.  It was next to a river and I remember that the last time I came here, we walked here from the MTR station.

Daniel’s Restaurant (Hong Kong)

Daniel's Restaurant grass jelly dessert

Daniel’s Restaurant located at Shop 8, Tin Po Building, 100 Tai Wai Road, Sha Tin in Hong Kong

It’s funny because the English translation of this Chinese café’s name is “steamed egg man” (金裝燉奶佬餐廳) which implies that this restaurant sells steamed egg puddings as their specialty.  However, it turns out that Daniel’s Restaurant is just a regular Hong Kong style café.  They don’t even sell any steamed egg at all!   Continue reading
