Hong Kong McDonald's Lightning kick chicken sausage burger

Basically the Lightning kick chicken sausage burger is the same as the German chicken sausage burger served in 2014.

The Lightning kick chicken sausage burger has Emmental cheese, saukeraut, dill mustard, chicken sausage and a spicy chicken patty, the same as the one in the crispy chicken burger.
There was not much saukeraut and sauce in the burger and it was extremely spicy.

Localized ramen at Taiyo Tomato Ramen

I was a bit disappointed with this place because the food was localized.
The seating and environment was relaxing though because there were not many customers.












The famous tomato broth soup was sweet and it had Chinese Shanghai vegetables in it which Japan doesn't have.



The cucumber salad was so bitter that it tasted like bitter melon.


The fried squid was rubbery and taste was far worse than the fried squid that you can buy at local street stalls.


The dessert was miserable because it was frozen and extremely chewy with an artificial green tea taste.


Keroppi ?!?

An eggy Lunch and afternoon tea at Kasa

I have always wanted to dine here because I kept seeing photos of the Chinese scotch egg and molten cake.

Finally went late in the afternoon to avoid the lunch crowd around 2:30pm and I was so glad because I made it for lunch and after I finished the food, the afternoon tea session started so I ordered that as well since I was there.
★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆
Soup:

The soup came with the lunch and faired average compared to the other wonderful items I had.
★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆
Chinese preserved vegetables, minced pork, soft boiled egg:

This was the Chinese scotch egg I came for.
The outer pork crust was made with minced pork and Chinese preserved vegetables (mui choi).
It was quite tasty but you couldn't taste the preserved vegetables so it just tasted like a normal scotch egg with a delicious runny yolk.

★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆
Minced beef, fresh tomato puree, double fried potatoes and onsen egg:

It was good that the rice came separately.
I think this dish is trying to mimick minced beef with egg (woh daan ngau yuk) but I loved it because the tomato sauce was really tart and it was basically canned tomatoes.
On the side, there were cubes of crispy potatoes which were really yummy and the beef was lean.
The onsen egg just made the whole thing silkier but unfortunately, thats too much egg in one meal if you chose the scotch egg as starter but how can you not choose it!!


★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆
Kasa style molten duck yolk custard cake:

This was not part of any set so I ordered it separately.
It was just divine because the cake crust is crunchy on the outside but soft and cakey in the middle filled with delicious runny egg custard.
When they serve it, they will slice it in the middle so the custard flows out.
★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆
Hot soy milk :

The soy milk was part of the tea set but unfortunately it tasted disgusting because it tasted rancid.
I can't understand why there was that taste because hot soy milk is not supposed to taste like that.
★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆
Grilled salmon congee:

The salmon congee was part of the tea set and it was just different because you don't normally get salmon with congee.
As well as congee, they had these other tea set choices which I wanted but sadly I only have one stomach.

Carrianna ChiuChow Cuisine Restaurant 's mooncake 2015

Got to try them because my colleagues were given them.
They were sweet and sickly with a rich salted egg yolk in the middle which oozed with orange oil!








Hindu Curry Restaurant

There are not many curry places in the East side of Hong Kong so this was why we went here.

Apparently, Hin Ho Curry is really famous and serves a good variety of curry.

Started off with Masala poppadoms which were topped with crisp fresh tomatoes and onions that made you hungrier as you ate.

++++++++++++++++++++++
Next we had the samosas which were vegetarian filled with fluffy potatoes and peas.
There is a lamb option as well.

+++++++++++
Chicken satay:
Then we had lightly spiced chicken satays which were tender and juicy.

+++++++++++++
The lamb shank was soft and the lamb came off the bone easily.

To go with the curry, the rotis were perfect because they were soft and light.

The naan was soft and fluffy

++++++++++
We also had my favourite saag paneer which was spinach and cottage cheese, a lightly spiced curry.

++++++++++
I was surprised to see curry crab on the menu but this was very spicy.

+++++++++++
These were huge prawns in a sweet and mild curry sauce.

+++++++++++
For tandoori, there was a good variety ranging from: chicken, lamb, pork neck meat and squid.

My favourite were the squid and lamb.


The Tandoori squid was my favourite because it was surprisingly springy and tender.

++++++++++++
To finish off, there was strawberry lassi which was blended with fresh strawberries but I found it a bit sweet.

++++++++++++
Overall the food was ok but service can be slow especially during lunch.
They also have other Asian options to cater for everyone.
