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.

After dinner, they strolled to the Victoria Harbour area before proceeding to Avenue of Stars.

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.
