Hong Kong

We break our flight north at Hong Kong

We have our evening meal at Yung Kee in Wellington Street... it's always full but we get there early enough to beat the evening queue! Beautifully subtle bbq pork, great won ton soup and braised scallop with vegetables. We also have a taste of the signature dish roast goose!

Sunday morning get up early and arrive for breakfast at the 75 year old Luk Yu Tea House in Stanley Street. A yum cha feast of pork bun, fish ball and gow gee! Then a long walk up the hill (the escalators are all going down in the morning) to the still quiet Hollywood Road and then down via Upper Laska and Cat Street markets and back along Hollywood to our hotel to ick up bags and head for the station to catch the airport express
