I said to Yumeko; “Mighty misty today isn’t it?”
Yumeko said to me; “That is no romantic fog! It’s the pollution!!”.
“That would explain the frog in my throat and my continual sudden coughing”, I thought to myself.
I met Yumeko outside City Super in the colossal Harbour City Mall.
T’was a dangerous place to meet for I found a heap of goodies that I had to grab:
Bath powders. I must laugh at myself for I got a cow one too!
Our tummies grumbled as we saw the queue for Din Tai Fung. However, Yumeko can be a wiley fox when needs be so she got us a dining space quick time.
Xiao Long Bao
Everyone goes here to try this apparently. I can testify that they were a true delight, paper thin skin and the filling was delicious and all steamed to perfection. Note to me: Must try this in Tokyo too.
All stuff down the gullet! I enjoyed this meal tremendously. A few days later I had the chance to grab a bite at a branch of Crystal Jade in Harbour City and it did not compare with Din Tai Fung. I don’t care if anyone disagrees with me!!
Din Tai Fung
Shop 130, 3F Silvercord, 30 Canton Road
Mischief Makers in the pm:
Yumeko and I did much wandering about doing what we love! Shopping!
Back to my soya skincare fetish: Yumeko bought me some more treats.
I am a soap and water kinda gal. I am not keen on strongly scented soaps so the shower wash above was an absolute gem. I loved it soooo much that Yumeko got me the sunscreen to try too.
Marching into Muji
Muji in the east is another planet in comparison to the shoddy shops we have here. I would just love Muji UK to start to stock some of these things:
Dinner time! Grub’s up!
So after stuffing down some more yummy things. Yumeko announced that we were going to have a tofu dessert. “Why not”, I thought!
Then it came out…….
A big ole bucket of the stuff!!
My heart sank!!
“How on earth are we to eat all that?”
“What do I do if it tastes of shite?”
I loved this stuff!!!
Sooooo light and “tofuey“. If you don’t like tifu…steer cleer of this one for it has such a pure clean delicate flavour and I wish I really was a cow with 4 stomaches so I could have had more!
Yumeko tells me that there is a Sweet Dynasty in Tokyo…another place to visit!
After dinner, it was back to the W hotel. I am so glad that I had a chance to visit this place for myself. Hiro’s lighting design hero Kaoru Mende designed teh lighting here and as you may have seen in my last HK post, it is rather spectacular.
We spent a great deal of our evening snapping away and giggling between drinking.
I have one more Hong Kong Post……shall be up and ready soon.
