Dine in Hong Kong .. din in KL

So sluggish in posting. You know how it is, after a long holiday, back to the daily grind, sort pictures, unpack, major laundry, clear piled up tasks, delayed errands, unpack when shipment arrives (Eeyup. Shipped some of the goods bought. =P) and of course another historical and most definitely memorable walk in the sun.

Bosses exercising in casual wear.Servants exercising in uniform.Ciggies, water, candy and snacks were flying off the shelves.And look, the usual Pasar Malam held every Saturday on the lane off TAR Road did not seem affected at all.
*Glance at title* Food blog food post.

Only managed to spend 2 nights in Hong Kong. Very short stopover before a much longer trip up north. Stopover made shorter by 1) flight delay of 4 horrendous hours!! And 2) temperamental weather. The lighting alarm went off at Chek Lap Kok Airport so all passengers had to stay in the parked plane for another 10 long minutes! Arrghhh.2 nights only so here's the 2 good dinners I enjoyed.

The Spaghetti House franchise has many outlets dotting the city.

Its Gourmet Set serves 2 but on (ahem) experience, it's actually enough for 3 pax (small to medium eaters.)
Hot Lemon Tea, Creamy Corn Soup, Smoked Salmon Fruit Salad and Black Pepper Vongole Spaghetti (do note the generous amount of black pepper and lalas).Since there were 3 of us all claiming to be at the verge of starvation (well, it was already 9pm), we added an ala carte order of Hawaiian Pizza.The food was so good that we stuffed ourselves silly ie beyond full. Blame our greed for the waddling we had to adopt to move around thereafter. How undignified in a trendy capital of fashion and style!

Bill:- Dear shoppers, recognise that location? That's my favourite shopping complex. Why? It houses a good mix of branded factory oulets. Oh Citygate Tung Chung, how you put me in debt!

Dear Non-Bananas, can your please help to translate the name of this restaurant? This relatively small restaurant was packed to the brim and had patrons queuing outside on the pavement. Picture features my 3 lively friends after a burning meal. Friends who got my lips numbed and intestines burnt.
BBQ Lamb marinated in Super Hot Chili Spices Cold Seasoned Cucumber tossed in Super Hot Chili Oil+Flakes Roasted Fish drenched in Super Hot Chili OilQuite an effective attempt to douse out fire in the hole. Salted Mandarin Drink. Somewhat like our 'kam-kat' drink.Oops no bill. So being me, cannot remember the cost nor the add. Err somewhere in Kowloon. =P

Food in Hong Kong may not be cheap BUT no pain to my pockets because one gets quantity AND quality!

You went to HKG and ate at Spaghetti house? should eat something that's authentic food, no? LOL

Selba, that complex is located quite far from the bustling area and we were too hungry & tired (read heavy shopping). No loss tho as the food was delicious and the franchise has not reached our shore.

The Chinese charaters means Sichuan grilled whole fish. The first characters (from left to right) are the old name of Sichuan, which is pronounced as ba shu. The last 3 characters mean "grilled whole fish."
