address: Mongkok Municipal Building's Foodcourt Level 3 (although it's 4th storey in chinese) Try: Fish belly congee and meatball congee. Opens: 630am-3pm

and they had so many newspaper cuttings laid on their wall tiles for everyone to see. They start really early in the morning, and the locals come pretty early to eat here as well.
Fish belly porridge: $26
Meatball porridge: $23
we shared a drink for $9

after my bowl of porridge (i had the fish belly one which had a few tiny bones so watch-out) it was really fresh, though i kinda prefer's wj's meatball congee more. Next, we are on the look-out for Kam Wah Cafeteria 金華冰店's famous pineapple buns aka BO LUO BAOS!!! On the way, i passed by the fish market street where there were so many plastic bags of different fishies and they look so colourful!

Follow me please for the famous milk made in a sock ala HK's well-known milk tea and pineapple buns. This is really good.... heard their coconut tarts and egg tarts are recommended as well. Better try! Had my milk tea in a cup with a cow print on. Really traditional and so cute!!! LOVE every moment of my HK Shopping cum food trail holiday. By the way, it's always crowded here at Kam Wah, and everyone is pushing their way through this small little cafeteria. Not to mention people shouting for orders, so get use to it.

Kam Wah Cafe
47, Bute Street Prince Edward

we ordered:
2 bo luo baos 1 egg tart 2 cups of milk tea

after tea break, we went back to the hotel to put some of my shopping bags down and i went to change into my new 'skull' top! haha, couldnt resist wearing new clothes on a holiday!

Went to SINO centre to take a look at some nick-nacks, saw the imitation Karrlson clock which we were very interested in. Although it was quite huge to bring home. It was cheaper than in Singapore. But we didn't it in the end. Left Sino centre and went to top up our 'octopus card' and took the MTR to Tsim Sha Tsui. Walked around Granville road and Granville Circuit. Wj bought some shirts from UNIQLO too.
and just behind granville circuit, there's a new hotel in town!!! Looks pretty neat, next time shall try to stay here. Too bad, i forgot to take the name of the hotel down.
McDonalds is selling double patty pork burger!!! This I've got to try!!!

soon it was dinner time, and we had our dinner at 麥文記麵家.
G/F No 51 Parkes St (Jordan) Opens 12pm-1230am daily.
Try: Fermented Beancurd Pork Trotter (think collagen gals!!!) and wanton noodles. The bowl may look small, see, smaller than my face in the photo, but underneath that bowl of golden noodles, lies big fat wantons which has fresh prawns in them!!! And boy were they succulent! YUMMY!!!

my take at the fermented beancurd pig trotter. Not bad! taste not too strong though.

left: my wanton noodles right: wj's spring onion noodles.

Next for dessert: Australian Diary!!! (it's just next door to the noodle house)
For their egg pudding!!! and of cos their 'breakfast' sets are very affordable. Their scrambled eggs are to die-for. Bright yellow, looking all creamy and thick and juicy on a thick yet soft steamed bread!!!! SHIOK ah!

can u believe this after eating so much, wj still has stomach for more push-cart food back at mongkok!!! And he's eating a Styrofoam bowl of snails!!!
