Central HK Restaurant

I passed by this place several times and its always full house.

It serves this traditional HK fare, cart noodles. On the menu its called rickshaw noodles $4.90 with some ingredients already thrown in so you don't have to choose. Add $1 for dry mee.

It turned out to be really good, the soup too. The portion is really small, so you should add side dishes to make it a proper meal.

I added fried wantons, so this is like wanton mee.

Cooking Beer Chicken

This is a Chinese adaptation of the classic American BBQ dish Beer Can Chicken.

Create the marinade with:

(1) Light Soya Sauce
(2) Dark Soya Sauce
(3) Oyster Sauce
(4) Sesame Oil
(5) Garlic
(6) Chinese 5 spice powder
(7) Salt & Pepper

Rub the marinate into the chicken then place in wok. Pour 1 bottle of beer (preferably a dark lager/ale) into the wok and cover with lid. Leave to cook for 15mins on 1 side, flip the chicken over to the other side for another 15mins and its ready to serve.


I really like this dish as its easy to prepare a delicious meal and the chicken is fall-off-the-bone tender. I have also tried this with Insamju (Korean medicinal wine) for when my family members are not feeling well, really invigorating.

Budae Jjigae (Army Stew) with unlimited ramyeon and soup.

Their signature cheese and ribs hot plate that every table in the restaurant was having.

Extra serving of tok-bokki, these spicy Korean rice cakes are addictive and can be found everywhere in Korea (from the street hawkers to convenience stores).

 We tried out hite a Korean light beer brand.

Jollibee Fried Chicken

When Philippine fast food chain Jollibee first opened in Singapore, the Qs were unbelievably long. Only now do I finally get to eat its famous fried chicken, having 1 original and 1 spicy. They do serve it with rice but I got mashed potatoes instead, plenty of butter in the mashed potatoes.

They serve their chicken with classic gravy that is really quite good. Heard good things about their sweet spaghetti too, maybe next time.
