新港鱼蛋王 Revisit – Yuen Long, Hong Kong


Yeah I’m gonna write a series of good food in Yuen Long again. This shop has been there for decades and it’s located right in the middle of the whole Yuen Long town. Of course they are great for their balls especially fish, beef and cuttlefish balls. I have never tried their beef brisket though, hence I decided to try that this time. Check out my previous post 4 years ago http://wp.me/pCcuC-hB.

Overall Rating: 5/5. They are still offering prices around HKD$28 range and the freshness of the food here is amazing. Beef brisket melts in your mouth and very chunky! Writing this makes me wanna go back there soon! Awesome small air-conditioned place!

Location: 又新街10号地下. Tel: 2443 1266

Fu Tung Chinese Market – Tung Chung, Hong Kong


To be honest, if I wasn’t exhibiting at the Asia Expo in HK, I wouldn’t know this place exist. And if I wasn’t staying at Marriot beside the exhibition venue, I wouldn’t have taken the free shuttle to this place also! Tung Chung is like the last town in the New Territories of Hong Kong before reaching the airport. Hence it’s a town far away from the city, although linked by the metro and buses. However, this little town has everything and the mall there is where all the factory outlets are located. Shoppers will go crazy but not for me… I only look for food haha…

So on the first nights, I was looking for something local with my friend and we came across a market… Not a very wet market if you know what I mean but the fact is, it is airconditioned! (Perfect for me! ;P) And the food there looks so good that we decided to try. See the pics and descriptions below:

Rather clean for a market... on the right is the stall selling Cheong fun, curry fishballs, braised wings, etc. Quite good also.

Taste: The snacks stall has a lot of interesting 小吃, roast meats are awesome and not fatty, Korean stall food is also nice and they have loads of pics of celebrities visited their stall.

Portion: Average

Service: Nice and friendly stall owners. Especially the Korean stall’s uncle… made sure we were seated comfortably and have a stool to put our stuffs. Very nice!

Ambience: Errr… what ambience?

Price: Affordable… much cheaper than 翠華 upstairs!

RTE: If I’m back in Tung Chung, I will definitely eat there again!

Location: G/F Fu Tung Chinese Market, Tung Chung, Fu Tong Shopping Center. Closes at 8pm… Be early or go there for lunch!

孖寶车仔面 @ Kwai Fong, Hong Kong


This place is highly recommended by my friend and people who lives around there. It’s basically a street stall inside a shopping mall. When you reach Kwai Fong MTR station, you have to walk on the link bridge and turn right to the older mall. If not clear better ask ‘cos I will get lost too. It was about 9pm but the business was still very good. This place I can conclude is totally unknown to tourists!

Was told by the lady I cannot take photos of the stall... but... what's there to hide??? It's just menu hanging everywhere... sigh...
Pig spare parts soup...
My order of noodles with beef brisket, cheesy cocktail sausage and squid balls. HKD$30. Basically you can choose whatever ingredient you like to add to your base plain noodles.
Stealing a peek at what others are ordering... and I didn't order... how can?!?!
So I ordered a braised chicken leg with curry fishballs. The leg damn nice... for only HKD$13 each. Balls same same like anywhere else lah.
Me putting on the disposable gloves... Had to stretch it a bit... too small!
Finally got to eat! It's juicy and tender! Love it!

Rating: 4/5. Initial attitude was not there but service at the tables were good.

Taste: Nice and tasty… especially the chicken leg! Yums!

Portion: Average

Price: Stated with the pics

RTE: When I’m around the area.

Location: See last picture. If lost, must ask!

新港鱼蛋王 @ Yuen Long, NT, HK


The problem with not regular blogging is that you would have a lot of backlogs of reviews to write about and at the same time not realising that your blogsite has more than 10,000 unique hits!  Great to know that those that hit my site are not just from Singapore but from the Asia Pacific region! Hence I had to pul myself out of bed and start clearing what I have documented and hope you guys like it as well! ;P

Was in Yuen Long again for food and I actually like being there discovering lots of good food in the area. I have HK friends that even ask me, what the hell are you doing in Yuen Long??? Just because it’s far from the city, it doesn’t mean that it’s not happening. It’s happening for me though… food wise! ;P Checked out this place fishball place before and this time decided to review them.

Shop front
Selection of different seafood paste which you can buy home to cook with your noodles or a la carte.
All the balls, beef, chicken, squid, prawn, fish, etc...
You don't get these prices in Tsim Sha Tsui or Causeway Bay...
Very small shop only... super crowded during peak hours...
Our bill... collectively...
Friend's order of wan ton and fish ball soup
My order of fish noodles with squid balls
The noodles are made with fish meat!
Yummy!

Rating: 4.5/5

Taste: Freshness is in the air… the balls are really nice… the fish noodles is not bad but I reckon it’s just a gimmick. I’ll have normal noodles anytime.

Portion: Average

Price: HKD$46 for 2 bowls

RTE: I might… but there are so many choices in Yuen Long!
