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!
Address of the place

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!

Location: See last pic. 🙂

Kam Tin Japanese Restaurant (金田日本料理) @ Yuen Long, NT Hong Kong

Advertisements

I crossed over to Yuen Long in the New Territories of Hong Kong last weekend. My first time there and to my surprise, the whole place is a town on its own! There are so many good places to eat, so many places to shop, karaoke is so cheap (clean ones of course), so many places to eat (oops I said that already) and so crowded!

Streets of Yuen Long. Very near the japanese restaurant...

Met up with my friend who lives there and she brought me to this place for Japanese food… I was like skeptical at first, because I’m in Hong Kong man! I want Char Siew! I want Siew Yoke! I want Beef Brisket! But since she was paying for the meal then I kept my big mouth shut lah…

After alighting from the bus from the causeway, we walked a little to reach this bird will not lay eggs place (鸟不生蛋的地方), which if I was left alone, I will never find it and prolly get lost in the process. It’s located somewhere near B仔凉粉, so if you can find it, just ask the people there. The restaurant is a very small outlet which claims to sit 64 people… Seriously, to me, I think half of that would be comfortable. You know lah, in HK, everything is small… flats are small, offices are small, hotel rooms are small, even eateries are small! So we went in and found a good seat under the aircon. 🙂 To my surprise, the whole place was so crowded until left only a table for us… it was 3pm+! I heard Hong Kongers eat throughout the day… it’s so damn true man! I love HK!!! Woot! So we started ordering what we can possibly finish.

The outside of the restaurant
Restaurant ambience
Must camwhore a bit... behind is where they prepare the food
Super worn out menu book...
Huge Volcano Rolls... the menu has got a lot of selection!
Their super long sushis... this is how they made a name for themselves! Prices seen here are in HKD.
First up, Salmon Sashimi. Super thick slices of about 1cm!!! Super fresh and it just melts in your mouth! For only HKD$45!
See how big each slice and the texture of it...
Sorry I'm just being a bitch... 'cos I wanna make your mouth water!!! Haha...
Soft Shell Crab... HKD$40+. They have already chop up into pieces but they bother to put back into shape and make the crab happy. ;P
Baked oyster with cheese... this one is super yummy... forgot how much...
Have u seen an unagi sushi so long in your life? My first so I must eat... hehe... HKD$18
Have u seen... ok nevermind, I'll just eat... HKD$12 only... wah worth it!
BBQ squid tentacles... not bad lah although not a big fan. Forgot how much...
Damn good beef rolls with Enoki mushrooms. A little burnt taste adds to the perfection. Love it! Forgot how much also! ;P
BBQ Pork Neck slices... pretty good but thinking of the fats in there, I only ate 1-2 slices...
Baked Rice with Tofu, Chicken & Cheese (HKD$38). This is prolly the worst dish there. they should take this out. Got chef's recommendation some more... Tasteless and not enough ingredients.

Rating: 5/5.

Taste: Very fresh and very nice. Very different from what we get in Singapore. Love it!

Portion: Above average. they really live up to their mission.  Good portion, good quality, good service and good prices. Excellent job Becky!

Price: Total bill about HKD$400+, which works out to be about SGD$70+.  Totally worth it for the portions.

RTE: Hell yeah!!!
