The Chewys went for an outdoor photoshoot early in the morning on the 4th day of our Hong Kong trip. Will be sharing some of the photos in another post!
After the shoot, we were kinda tired and headed back to Hotel Jen to freshen up. We took a short break in our room before going for lunch at Café Malacca, courtesy of the hotel. Café Malacca has been named a Bib Gourmand restaurant in the MICHELIN Guide 2014 & 2015. The wide variety of dishes offered are from Malaysia and Singapore; just what we needed after days of feasting on Hong Kong cuisine!
We browsed through the menu and in no time, decided on the dishes we wanted to try because we were kinda craving for them! We had some Otak Otak which was spicy and delicious enough to whet our appetite for the other dishes to come!
These sticks of Satay smelled so good! We had the chicken and mutton ones which were tender on the inside and tasted mildly sweet.
I like my Hokkien Mee to be slightly wet with gravy. What about you? The stock was well-flavored which was nicely soaked up by the slim noodles. It would be great if the hokkien noodles had some charred bits for that wok hei flavor!
We were starting to feel a little full but the delicious tangy taste of the Assam Laksa kept us going! The gravy was a little on the watery side but was flavorful nevertheless. We also found generous chunks of fish in it!
After a heavy lunch, we made our way to Wong Tai Sin Temple. Dedicated to the Great Immortal Wong, Wong Tai Sin Temple is a popular major tourist attraction in Hong Kong.
Whenever we travel abroad, we try our best to visit the temples there to pay our respects and to offer our prayers.
The weather was scorching hot and Chanelle started to protest because she was wrapped up in the carrier
We didn’t have any other plans after our visit to Wong Tai Sin Temple, so we decided to travel to Prince Edward area for dim sum.
One Dim Sum is a One Michelin Star dim sum eatery which is affordable and opens till late.
Steamed Rib Bone Rice with Chicken Paw (HK$24)
Steamed Shrimp Dumplings (HK$36)
Dried Squid with Curry Sauce (HK$19)
More eating awaits us at Hotel Jen’s Club Lounge which offers free drinks and snacks all day long!
We were very impressed by the food offered during evening cocktail hour! We were not that hungry but we couldn’t stop eating. LOL! Loved the smoked salmon, potato salad and curry fish balls!
Best of all.. Free flow beer! Whoohoo!
I stayed in our room with Chanelle while the hubs went to hunt for my Cookies & Cream Vitasoy and also bought back some dinner since we were going to stay up till late to pack our luggages. Confirm will be hungry! Hahaha.
Yay! Mak’s Noodles for dinner! It converts to about SGD$7 which is pretty expensive for such a small bowl. Popularly known as best wanton noodles in Hong Kong, we found that it didn’t live up to the hype. The soup was quite tasty though!
Swaddled Little misschewy like a newborn after her shower the next morning. Hahaha.
For the past few days, we had been heading out for breakfast so we decided to try the breakfast at Hotel Jen on our last day in Hong Kong. The breakfast spread at the Club Lounge certainly looked very appetizing!
Before checking out, we went upstairs to take a look at the swimming pool. It was a pity that the pool was still under maintenance when we were there.
We had an amazing stay at Hotel Jen Hong Kong and it was time for us to return home!
