Once Upon A Cantonese Winter: Mongkok

Feb 16, 2011

MONGKOK — The busiest place on earth as per ABC News Australia is always included in my itinerary on all my Hong Kong trips.   You can find basically anything here – from souvenirs to clothes to gadgets. It’s like the Divisoria of Manila but cleaner and more organized.

We haven’t eaten lunch since 10am so as soon as we arrived in Mongkok, I took my 2 recruits to my favorite fast food in Hong Kong – Café de Coral.

Nothing beats the roast pork and duck rice meal

Ligster had BBQ Pork + Chicken Rice.

We did some window shopping afterwards at the Langham Place...

Ligster scored a pair of shoes (or two?) at Monki.

When we got tired, we took the MTR and went back to our hotel.

  1. Ligster actually had BBQ Pork with Soy Chicken. ;) It actually looks more like White Chicken, but maybe just the photo. Hehe.

  2. Haha! thanks for noticing that, K! Ang layo sa sausage. Lol! Regarding the Soy Chicken... the soy sauce on top was misleading kaya feeling ko Soy Chicken siya. Anyway, I'll put chicken na lang sa caption to be safe. =p
