Hong Kong:金華冰廳, Brasserie Le Fauchon

In the morning, Bill wanted to go to an award winning Hong Kong Style Cafe. They have won awards for their egg tarts and Bill was eager to try some of it.

The place was super busy in the morning, but we still managed to get a seat.

The award winning egg tart. You can tell they either used peanut oil or peanut butter in the recipe.

They are also famous for their 波羅油 (Which is a pineapple bun with a slice of cold butter in between). There’s no pineapple in the pineapple bun, it’s only called that because the pastry cap resembles a pineapple…sort of. Again, you can taste the peanut.

And finally Bill ordered a coffee/milk tea combo.

We decided to meet up with April again before we continued our adventure in Tokyo, Japan. We met up with her in Causeway Bay and had lunch there at a retro Hong Kong Style Cafe.

April had some really good rice noodles there, but I don’t remember what the name of the cafe was called. After we were finished, wyjj picked us up and drove us back to Central. I showed April the Homeless stores and then we went restaurant hunting for a while:

We ended up going to a restaurant called “Brasserie Le Fauchon”. I remembered going to that restaurant with my big sister when I visited almost 6 years ago and it was really good.

I had the duck breast and foie gras on the left and on the right was Bill’s dish. I don’t remember what he ordered, but it looks like lamb.

I ordered the molten lava cake and April ordered the pie on the right. Bill ordered the creme brulee.
