We took the MTR to Central and made our way to Yung Kee. Thanks to Google Maps, we knew exactly which exit to head for and which small lane to take.
Good thing we reach there early. In no time, the place was full. We actually wanted to order just the goose but we didn’t want to look too cheapo, so we order another kai lan. Our fears were unfounded, for many locals also went there just to order a bowl of goose noodles.
Yung Kee Restaurant
32-40 Wellington Street, Central, Hong Kong. (852) 2522 1624.
After the meal, we started our (or should I say, wifey’s) shopping. She found the H&M outlet along Queen’s Road Central and spent over an hour at the 4-storey store. I spent about 30 minutes, not finding anything that I like, then headed to the entrance to wait for wifey.
Wifey finally emerged victorious with a bag of buys. We proceed along Queen’s Road Central. We chanced upon this little girl distributing leaflets to promote a children’s boutique. She looked very pretty, so we asked for a photo snap.
After tasting the noodles, we made our way slowly back to the MTR and went to Causeway Bay. We shopped around Times Square, then decided to head to
We were recommended to try Mango Grapefruit & Sago Sweet Soup 楊枝金露 and Durian Glutinous Rice Roll.
After the dessert, we headed to Hang Lung Centre, where there is a factory outlet of shoes. Then while thinking of what to eat for dinner, Angie suggested we go to Jiu Ji Beef Noodles at Gough Street, which is back to Sheung Wan MTR. Again, thanks to Google Maps, we figured a short cut through the lanes to get to our destination.
At the stall, 2 Taiwanese ladies asked us what we ate, and ordered the same thing. After the meal, we went to find the next eatery, Tai Cheong Bakery, famous for egg tarts. We lost our way somewhat, and when we found the bakery, the same 2 Taiwanese ladies were already at the store. Guess these must-go eating places must be on many free-and-easy travelers’ list.

Angie bought quite a bagful of Disney toys for Mayenne too. We’re both happy.
And we did! Grabbed our guilinggao and…
We knew our hotel as a rooftop garden, but never got up there. So this evening, we decided to head up there, and boy, WHAT A VIEW!
