Tsui Wah Restaurant 翠華餐廳 - Mongkok - Kowloon, Hong Kong

Happy Queen's Birthday! Hope you're all having a great long weekend. Can't believe it's June already. This year has flown by just like that. Continuing on with the Hong Kong posts before my memory becomes a blur, I do have a few more posts to go through and then it will be on to Singapore.


Tsui Wah Restaurant is a well known, if not the most famous Cha Chaan Teng or otherwise known as a Hong Kong tea restaurant in Hong Kong. With numerous branches throughout Hong Kong, China and Macau, it can nearly be found everywhere. They are open 24 hours so whenever you are hungry it can be easily accessible no matter what time of the day it is.

As we were staying in Mongkok, there was one a few minutes away from our hotel.


It's a local eatery visited by locals, serving a great variety of affordable fusion style Western and Cantonese comfort food.


In the cold one needs to eat something to keep warm so we decided on the 'Fish Ball and Fish Cakes with Flat Rice Noodles in Fish Soup (HKD 30.00)'.


The fish balls are made fresh daily using over 10 varieties of fresh fish and yellow eels as they claim. They are plump and bouncy in texture. The milky fish broth had a subtle and pleasant taste without being overpowering.


The noodles are thick and slippery making it very easy to eat . It just needs some more soup as the noodles absorbed most of it.


If you do like spicy foods, I recommend you eating it with this sauce. It's divine!

A must visit anytime during the day. We also came here for breakfast before our flight back home. They offer good value breakfast sets.

The Famous Berry Donut Van - Berry - South Coast, Australia.


A trip to Berry is not complete without a visit to The Famous Berry Donut Van. The name says it all.


After lunch at the Sourdough Cafe, we took a stroll along the main strip of Berry to explore the little specialty shops. Once we walked a bit, it was off to the van to get the much raved about cinnamon donuts. The smell of these fried goodies could be smelt from a distance away. Made fresh on the spot, these donuts are cooked to order and freshness is guaranteed.



I missed it the last time I was in Berry and have wanted to try it ever since. Give me a piping hot cinnamon donut over those gourmet ones any day.


We ordered the '6 Donuts ($9.00)' to share. These hot donuts are deep fried giving it a crispy outer crust and fluffy inside. Coated with the right amount of cinnamon sugar, they were scrumptious. Oh so good!


What makes these donuts different to those sold by the franchises? It's cooked by hand and not by a machine. They aren't perfectly round and might be irregular sized but they sure do taste great. Though they are larger than the standard sized cinnamon donuts. Yay, more for us.




A must stop when driving to the South Coast.
