Hai Jin Porridge Shop
G/F., 103 Argyle Street, Mong Kok, Kowloon
2787 7330


We had an early breakfast at this café just besides our hostel.

My dad had the Twisted Curled Noodles (HKD$21/SGD$3.80) which was quite crispy and came in a huge pile on the plate.

Likewise, the serving of the Fried Noodles with Luncheon Meat (HKD$21/SGD$3.80) was very generous.

I had the Hot Soya Milk (HKD$8/SGD$1.40) which came in a bowl instead of a cup. It’s freshly made and the sweetness was just nice.

The Soft Cake (HKD$7/SGD$1.20) was not what I expected. I thought it’s similar to Ma La Gao but it’s actually steamed rice cake which I don’t like.

This being my last meal in Hong Kong, I couldn’t resist ordering the ubiquitous Carrot Cake (HKD$11/SGD$2). This is soft and good.

All the food are only prepared after the orders are taken so our food was served hot from the kitchen.

This place caters more to locals than tourists. I think this is quite a popular place as there are 4 branches throughout Hong Kong.

WELCOME!

In ancient Greek mythology, sirens are creatures which have the body of a bird and the head of a woman. They have such sweet voices that sailors who heard their songs were lured into grounding their boats on the rocks on which the nymphs sang.

To me, food are like the sirens in so many ways. Intoxicating, wonderful, beautiful and yet, so very deadly if you let them get the better of you. Food is a big part of my life and it’s meant to be appreciated and savored slowly. I admit that I am extremely particular about what I eat. If it’s not something I want to put in my body, I’d rather not eat. Some people eat to live while others live to eat. I’ve yet to discover which side of the camp I’m in… What about you?

I hope that you will enjoy reading about my food adventures as much as I like writing them. And many thanks to my family and friends who always wait patiently for me to take photos before digging in!
