I did a post on the shops and restaurants I love in Hankow rd. in Tsim Sha Tsui. I have to add this restaurant that my friend Tisay recommended.
Sure all the lovely meats hanging looked tempting.
But the interiors was hardly tempting. Although I’ve eaten at worse looking places and I’ve loved the food specially at this place that had the best fish ball noodle soup.
The only downside to this restaurant was all their menus were in Chinese. Their menus had some pictures though and you could probably get through a meal by pointing at pictures or maybe print this post.
I love milk tea or “nai cha” and this one hits the spot. It’s really strong tea mixed with rich Black & White evaporated milk. It’s a must order!
nai cha or milk tea HK$14
It must be really good to have a sign in English and only HK$5!
We ordered 2 chicken livers and this is what we got. I’m not really fond of liver unless it’s in the form of paté but this was really, really good. It was sweet, savory and milky. The texture of the liver was exquisite. The flavor reminded me of teriyaki but better.

The chicken breast was a bit tough but overall it was very tasty and fragrant.
Hainanese chicken HK$80
When I last went to Yung Kee their roast goose was sold out and I’ve been yearning for some since then. Oh wow this goose was fantastic! So moist, juicy and full flavored. Now I don’t have to go all the way to Hong Kong side just to have my roast goose.

Here’s all the fatty skin and bones from all the roast goose I ate. Even without rice I loved it!
Yup no rice since I was avoiding carbs but I couldn’t resist these noodles. They were perfectly al dente and the mild cheese sauce was simply yummy with it. Even without the shrimp I would have been happy. This is another must order!

I wasn’t a big fan of the soup since it had an overwhelming taste of wansuy or cilantro which I hate.
I couldn’t put the prices of all the food we ordered because no one can understand the writing of the waiter. Maybe a Chinese doctor can figure it out?
The lesson is don’t judge a restaurant by it’s ambiance (even though Erap says differently ;p). Holes in wall like this restaurant can yield pleasant surprises. I’m definitely adding this to my list of ‘must eats’ in Hong Kong.

Leslie, rice can make some people gain weight easy. I had to stay away from rice for a while and only eat it when special dinner in restaurants. Some breads and noodle are fine . I do not gain weight from them.
I’ve been a follower of your blog for sometime now and I love your posts on HK, as it’s my favorite quick vacation place too! I’ve been to this place a couple of years ago, they used to have (hope they still do!) an English menu and with pictures at that. But we weren’t sure if the bill was correct as it was in Chinese characters. Nevertheless, it was a good meal at a really good price!
Che I read somewhere that the prices in the English menu is higher than the Chinese menu. I’ll check it out on my next trip. I’ll take pics of the English menu too. Thanks for the tip!
This is one of our favorite bbq restos in Kowloon, prices are good and best of all food is quick and delicious. The roast goose is good but my favorite hands down is still Yung Kee.
