Unlike the previous day, their third day in Hong Kong began with a better breakfast spot – the 50 year old Mido Cafe (美都餐室) @ 63 Temple Street, Yau Ma Tei, Kowloon.
Po Lo Bun and Yuan Yang
Triple Yolk Egg, Tomato, Ham and Baked Potato.
French Toast. Never tasted any better (and any more sinful) than this.
After a hearty meal, it’s time for next activity – shopping in Mong Kok.

Before they realized, it was already dinner time. Originated from Guangzhou, the Tai Ping Koon restaurant has a history that spans more than a century. Recommended by a friend, this restaurant was their chosen dining location for the final night in Hong Kong. Once immersed in the quiet and classy ambient, they almost felt the clock has been re-winded a few decades earlier. Food was great and so was the service.
Swiss Sauce Chicken Wings
Dried Fried Noodle with Beef
After dinner, they strolled to the Victoria Harbour area before proceeding to Avenue of Stars.

Opened in 1928, The Peninsula Hong Kong is Hong Kong’s very first hotel.
After a long day out, they returned to the hotel for a short rest before heading out to the nearby Temple Street. Wifey did some last minute shopping.
Supper at Temple Street was superb at this place called Sweet& Spicy Crab (庙街香辣蟹). You can’t go wrong with ice cold beer and great seafood. The clams and pepper salt mantis shrimp otherwise known as “pissing shrimp” (攋尿蝦) top the list of specialties to try.
