Hong Kong: 江仔記粉麵專家, Homeless, La Crêperie

It’s been so long since my last post in August. I’ve been focusing a lot on work and school and admit I haven’t given a lot of weight to my blog on my list of priorities. I’m glad I can finally catch a small break and continue blogging about my trip to Asia with Bill.

Wyjj brought us to a restaurant close to wear we stayed in Central. The restaurant doesn’t have an English name, the Chinese name is 江仔記 (gong zai kee) and they are famous for their rice noodles. It’s tucked into a place called 九如坊 (Kau U Fong):

The place was unusually empty that day and I was able to steal a shot of what the restaurant looks like:

The place was very clean.

This is 魚皮, deep fried fish skin. I think it’s typically dipped in soup or congee, but you can still eat it as is.

Bill is much more photogenic, or I’m just the better photographer.

These are chicken fingers, 雞腳. It’s one of my favourite things to eat, but can be off putting to some people.

This is what Bill and I ordered. I don’t remember exactly their names, but basically Bill ordered fish balls and I ordered fish wontons.

A close up of what the difference between our bowls were. These are all made on-site and were very bouncy and made well.

We took a stroll around the area and walked into a stored called Homeless. They sell the cute little items you would find on thinkgeek.com or HMV and chapters nowadays.

My sister is behind that glass door in the picture on the left. The store is very cute and very nicely decorated. They have 3 or 4 similar stores in the same area, all selling slightly different items.

That night, under wyjj’s recommendation, we joined dad and went to a place that makes french crepes, called La Crêperie.

It’s a nice little restaurant and all the waitresses spoke English and French.

Bill ordered a crepe that was mexican food inspired, and I ordered a crêpes flambée.

Here’s dad, who will proceed to bring us to dimsum the next morning and order enough to feed an army, but that’s for the next post. Love you dad.
