I always go to the same places and restaurants that are familiar to me every time I’m in Hong Kong. I guess I’m a creature of habit- only in this city because I’m here multiple times a year. Now that Hong Kong Tourism Board showed me all these new and cool places to hang out though, I guess I’ll be exploring Hong Kong more and more each time I’m around.
On our third day in Hong Kong, our first stop was at Stanley Bay located in the southern part of Hong Kong Island. Here you’ll see so many beautiful photo-worthy spots for tourists, restaurants to eat at and stores to shop.
We also enjoyed our all-you-can-eat dim sum lunch experience at Loong Toh Yuen. It’s located on the ground floor of Hullett House, 1881 Heritage, 2A Canton Road, Tsim Sha Tsui. They served delicious siomai, hake, bean curd, spoil and a lot more chinese dishes. I probably ate 6 pieces of siomao and endless amount of dim sum here! Yum.
Okay, don’t judge but this travel diary because it’s really becoming more of a food post. Lol. For dinner, we went to Mrs. Pound and in my opinion, this is one of the best restaurants I’ve eaten at in Hong Kong. It’s definitely a must-try!
Mrs. Pound is located at 6 Pound Lane, Sheung Wan and is a bit hard to find. It’s a hidden restaurant; outside it looks like a normal stamp shop with no entrance door. Note: It says “Mr. Ming’s Stamp Shop”. Once you see this name, you’ve found it! Press the rightmost bottom stamp and a magical door opens and it’ll lead you to the actual restaurant inside.
We also went to Repulse Bay where you’ll see a beach just beside a strip of restaurants, perfect for beach lovers who just want to relax and get a tan.
We ate at Limewood just beside the bay and had the best fish tacos ever! I wasn’t able to take a photo of it because I was just too hungry haha. I’m not really sure if it’s a Mexican restaurant but everything tastes amazing. I’m going back here for sure.
We also sailed Hong Kong’s Victoria Harbour on Aqua Luna, one of the last remaining red-sail Chinese junk boats. It sails from Tsim Sha Tsui and Central and I saw the beautiful city reflect on the waters at night. You can even relax in your own lounge sofa/bed and they include a complimentary drink too! This was the time that I really got to bond with my sister Liz- perfect way to end my night!
