Shellfish bisque with sweet basil soup – This is a French origin soup. It is a very thick and creamy based soup cooked with shellfish. This soup should be taken when it is hot, else it will be very thick and salty.

Onion Rings – The battered onion slices were deep fried till golden perfection and served with home-mixed barbecue sauce. No one can resist this simple and delicious crunchy goodness.

Grilled Shrimp skewer with Kalbi sauce – Kalbi sauce is Korean’s favorite barbecue sauce. It is sweet based and with a hint of saltiness as well. The coating of this sauce made the chewy fresh shrimps even more appetizing.

Penne Arabiatta – The pasta which has been mixed with some chili pepper and tomato paste, topped with some cheese and chopped onion, it is simple and satisfying.

Legendary Hollywood Burgers – The classic and yet compacted patty, the taste was very rich and packed with flavours.

Piri Piri Chicken Wings – The chicken wings were marinated with piri-piri sauce which consisted of crushed chilies, citrus peel, onion, pepper, salt, lemon juice and some paprika. This dish was quite spicy, but will be very exciting for those who love spiciness.

BBQ Beef Ribs – The grilled tender and juicy BBQ beef ribs, which is the main highlight for the platter. The barbecue ribs were covered with the tempting home-mixed barbecue sauce and overall it was a fulfilling and divine dish.

Cowboy bean – this was cooked with pinto beans, garlic and slices of onion which tasted like baked beans to me.

Baked Fish with Charmoula sauce – This Moroccan sauce was made from fresh herbs, garlic, lemon, and warm spices. The taste was similar to our “ikan bakar” (Malay Style Baked Fish).

For those who do not take beef, you can opt to replace the beef ribs and beef burger to chicken thighs and chicken burger.

Barbecue chicken thigh – Comparatively, the barbecue ribs were more juicy, flavourful and tender. However, the chicken thighs could be a good option as well when served with their signature barbecue sauce.

Chicken burger patty instead of beef patty.

Brownie with Vanilla Ice Cream – This is a heavenly enjoyment towards the end of the meal. The hot brownie was served with chilled vanilla ice cream which made a great combo. I simply love this dessert.

StevenGo Travel Hong Kong – Day One

stevengo-travel-hong-kong-day1

Planing for a “free and easy trip” has always been a hardest part as you need to do some homework before traveling. Following group tours is the easy way out but you need to follow the schedule and also you are paying for what you usually do not want such as dining in restaurants which are catered for group tours and bringing to souvenir shops which some require you to make a purchase or pay commission to the tour guide. It would be much easier if we could follow what we want especially if we have some tips and guides to follow.

The video below is my day one in Hong Kong and I hope this will give you a guide and some inspirations when planning for a trip to Hong Kong.
