Catching the feel of 'Dai Pai Tong' in Hong Kong

 ***Stale Post : Back then my trip to HK**
Dining at 'dai pai tong' (hawker stall) becomes our first choice whenever we landed on the concrete jungle. The moment we step out from the hotel we stayed, we can easily access to convenient store such as 7-11 (which is just beside the hotel), seafood restaurant and 'dai pai tong'. That night after we got out from the magical kingdom¸ we directly headed to the Hong Kong Island.

It was pretty cold that night¸ what's more when we were seated along the busy street. Before the food was served....we 'makan angin' (catching some cooling air) and the strong wind kept blowing to our face which  send chills down our spine! I have to wrap up them like a dumpling so that they won't catch a cold.

**Si Yau Wong Chao Mien (Fried Noodle with King Soy Sauce)** Finally I get to indulge it after watching HK drama series for the past decades¸ keep hearing those actor & actress mentioning about this noodle. I think is this special soy sauce which does the trick¸ making the noodle so aromatic & flavorful.

The fried rice doesn't look appealing¸ what's more when the taste was bland. I remembered they must have 'si yau wong' (King soy sauce)¸ so we requested for some. After adding a few drops in the rice...Voila! It became king of fried rice...aahahahahha. Probably¸ we were starving almost to death that we treated all the dishes like pieces of gem. We wiped clean all the plates.

The vege was a disaster. I was having hard time to munch and chew it even though I don't put on dentures. We just have to raise white flag!

We had 2 types of noodle¸ one fried rice and one greens. As for beverages¸ hubs had Blue girl and we had complimentary chinese tea. The bill came up to less than HKD100¸ which I think is pretty cheap considering we have no more room for our tummy after that but landed on our beds. Zzzzzz
