We didn’t eat in the Tai O fishing village, but instead returned to Kowloon and had a late lunch at the Sweetheart Cafe on Ashley road. This was my first experience with the culinary delight known as “Hong Kong French Toast” which is not for the faint of heart or stomach. It’s two slices of bread with peanut butter, battered and fried with butter and syrup. This was oh-so-good, but also so very heavy, all for 44 HK$ with iced milk coffee. Mom had udon soup with pork cutlet. Tip: Look for restaurants offering “Tea” time specials from 2-5pm.
Before dinner we went to a nearby night market, but did’t really find anything to buy.
Ray lives in Hong Kong and was kind enough to go to the train station and buy our overnight sleeper train tickets to Shanghai for us months before we arrived. This saved us a huge amount of hassle because I just could not figure out how to do it online in advance and we didn’t want to risk having them sold out when we got to Hong Kong. He also went with us back to Guangdong BBQ on Ashley Road to help us order some BBQ pork and duck with rice to take on the train with us (88HK$ for both). Thanks again for all your help Ray!
