Hung Wan Restaurant is a Cha Can Ting I frequent when I was staying in Shenzhen, China. The best thing about this place is, it is just below the regular spa I frequent too. So can order their food up and eat while I was watching TV program or having a foot massage! Awesome lifestyle back then and missing it definitely.
Hung Wan I believe are owned by Hong Kongers and they have gone through renovation recently and the interior designing was done by Millwork Interiors based in HK too. Very excellent work done, with a vibrant and energetic design giving the restaurant a younger and fresher look. Check out the pics below:
Taste: Not bad. Tasted better but nice enough to curb my cravings. A bit on the oily side though.
Service: Slow… Cos 24hrs… lesser staff?
Ambience: Smoking now disallowed inside aircon areas but still you get some assholes smoking inside.
Chanced upon this little traditional HK bakery cafe while I was nearby to shop for some guitar picks. What drew me to this place is the display of yummilicious buns that were shouting to my friend and me to get in and indulge! And that’s what we did. Haha… The place I tell you, is really very small. So small that I really give all the credits to the person who laid out the tables and chairs to sit around 36 pax! Kudos to him/her! Anyways, check out the pics below:
Taste: 4/5. Buns were excellent. Beverage is normal. But seems like a lot of people were there having noodle soup and luncheon meat egg sandwiches. Typical staples in HK. We couldn’t try cos we had lunch!
Service: 5/5. Unlike most of the other Cha Can Ting (HK Cafes), the waiting staff here are nice and friendly! Maybe they like big cute guys hahahaha ;P
Ambience: 3/5. This one no choice have to give mid rating. Very crampy and ventilation not good if they do frying inside the kitchen. BUT, they have aircon so add 1 hence 4/5!
Price: If I remember the set of bun and beverage is around HK28. Not expensive in the middle of TST!
If you’ve visited Shenzhen, China, you probably might not know this place. Although situated near the Futian customs, this place is not known to tourists or even most locals. Located at the midst of Shui Wei Village of Huanggang Town, you can’t miss this corner cafe with its nicely renovated interior and exterior. Check out the food I tried below:
Rating: 4/5. Confusing menu which I’ll write about in my next post!
Taste: 5/5. Value for money and taste good at the same time!
Service: 4/5. Quite good service overall.
Ambience: 4/5. Nice decor but smoking still present even though the government has banned smoking indoors.
Price: Very affordable. Whole meal for 2 is around RMB$110. No tipping required.
RTE: Yes if around that area!
Location: See last pic.
Tips: Sit near the door if you don’t smoke like me. 🙂
A HK friend of mine discovered this place which is just opposite the Futian Customs from HK. I’ve probably passed that place for like more than 10 times already but never really noticed. ;P So one day when I was coming back form HK, I decided to go try the mini baguettes which I heard was super good and fresh.
Rating: 4/5. Would be a 5 if smoke free and also one of the waitresses smelt really badly.
Taste: Pretty good… a good substitute for the ones in Macau… at least the baguettes are fresh and hot!
Price: RMB$20+. Can’t remember but it’s ok priced.
RTE: Yup! Wanna try the other stuff and I think their wan ton noodles are pretty good cos many people ordered.
Location: Directly opposite Futian Customs main entrance/exit.
