533. Day 19 | Yum Cha, Mongkok, Victoria Harbour


For lunch today, I went with my mom and sister to Yum Cha. I discovered this place a long time ago and had always wanted to visit when I came back to Hong Kong, and I'm so glad we did! I really loved it. The restaurant serves dim sum but not in the traditional sense. Their style is more eclectic, and all the dishes are really unique and almost looked too good to eat.

Here is one of their signature dishes; the{ custard bun desserts. They looked so funny and cute. You poke a hole in it and squeeze out the hot custard. Click here for a quick video of how I did it lol. My video is quite blurry but I had to do it with one hand while trying to film with the other..and since I already poked it I wasn't able to re-film it in better quality! But you get the idea.

For the rest of the day we went around Mongkok then back to Tsim Sha Tsui in the evening to the harbour. I love going there to take photos and to walk around. Victoria Harbour is my favourite harbour in the world. The buildings and lights seem endless. My mom brought me to the rooftop of a building, where she used to go a lot when she was young (as she grew up in HK). It was the most amazing view of the harbour I had ever seen. This photo above was not taken from there..I will post those in a later post.

So tomorrow we are heading to our final destination for a very short trip - Macau!
