Can’t believe 5 days just flew by in a blink of an eye!
At long last, I get to try Australia Dairy Co (ADC)!
Rating: 3.5 out of 5 Stars
Address: 47-49 Parkes Street, Jordan
Directions: Exit C2 Jordan MTR and take a short walk to Parkes Street.
We arrived at about 8.30am and were already greeted by a short queue. However we were seated rather quickly. The service was not too shabby. Food wise in comparison with Capitol Cafe:
Scrambled eggs: Capitol Cafe (ADC’s scrambled eggs on the salty side)
Macaroni soup: On Par
Coffee/Milk Tea: ADC
My family still prefers Capitol Cafe. We thought we’ll patronize ADC on the occasion when we are lazy to travel slightly further. When we left ADC at about 9.10am, a loooooong queue was already snaking outside. I’m pretty sure the wait was short since (almost) nobody in this fast-paced city sits and slowly savours their coffee/tea after meals, they mostly eat and go.
It was raining after we were done with breakfast but nothing’s gonna stop us from shopping and optimising the last few hours in HK. We walked around aimlessly and eventually ended up in Mongkok. As mentioned, there was never a day we went back empty-handed. Walking around aimlessly saw us bagging home shoes and bags, and we had to re-pack our luggage at the lobby. HAHA
Lunch was behind our hotel at Mido Cafe. Absolutely loved the interior and the vibes of the cafe. If you’ve been to old OG’s restaurant (& loved it) before it was demolished, you would know what I mean.
Rating: 4 out of 5 stars
Address: 63 Temple Street
Directions: Exit C Yau Ma Tei, turn right and walk all the way to the first end of the street, turn right then turn left again. The shop is at the end of the street.
The tiles reminds me of my grandparents’ home in Tiong Bahru, it’s exactly the same! Sigh, how I dearly missed it. But anyway, their food was pretty good. We ordered fried rice, crispy noodle and tomato-based baked rice, which is their specialty. Although their service was a tad poor, the food made up for it.
Stomachs filled, time to say goodbye to Hong Kong!
We took our luggage and headed right to our bus stop to take our airport bus, which was only a few minutes away from our hotel. Once you exit the hotel, turn right – that bus stop is nearer. Same thing, we took bus A21 like how we came.
Everyone ate to their heart’s content, emptied their wallets and had a ball of time in Hong Kong! And that made me glad and relieved. Planning for a family trip and trying to meet everyone’s needs were quite challenging but I’m pleased that all went well.
Thank you for reading! :)
