I don't know about you, but I am so excited about the recent announcement by the Singapore and Hong Kong Authorities. Hong Kong and Singapore are set to begin Air Travel Bubble (ATB)* on May 26, 2021. This arrangement will allow travelers from both sides to visit each other without the need for quarantine.
There are so many things I missed about Hong Kong. No one can avoid talking about food. Of course, they all taste better with the company of good friends.

Top 5 food I missed in Hong Kong
1) Roast Goose (Yat Lok Restaurant)
Goose is something you cannot get in Singapore. Therefore, it is a must-eat item every time I go to Hong Kong. The usual suspects are Yung Kee or Kam's Roast, but mine is Yat Lok. This MICHELIN Star restaurant doesn't have a fancy vibe but what you get is the hole-in-the-wall atmosphere. You have to sit shoulder by shoulder with the next guest and be prepared to face the stares of disapproval if you eat too slowly.
Address: 34-38 Stanley Street, Hong Kong
2) Beef Brisket (Sister Wah)
You can get really good beef brisket in Hong Kong. It goes really well in noodle soup. The soft and tender protein is heaven with the flavourful soup and perfectly cooked noodles. This will truly warm your heart on a cold day. Opt for the dry version if you prefer not to have the soup. ;)
Address: 13 Electric Road, Hong Kong
3) French Toast (金華冰廳 Kam Wah Cafe)
I know I know...You can get French Toast everywhere in Hong Kong. I bet every Hong Konger will have their own favorite spot to get their own little greasy, eggy and sweet plate of joy. In Hong Kong, it is just made differently. With peanut butter, deep-fried and drenched in sweet syrup, there is really nothing to complain about. You just need to run an hour on a treadmill to burn it off...LOL
Address: 45-47 Bute St, Mong Kok, Hong Kong
4) Sandwich (新香園)
If you want a snack at night, there are many places to satisfy your hunger pang. However, nothing can be more comforting than luncheon meat and egg in between two slices of toasted bread. Buttery on the inside, it smells just like what you get at home but better. It's finger-licking good. Best with a cup of cold Hong Kong Milk Tea!
Address: G/F, No.38 Kweilin Street, Sham Shui Po, Kowloon, Hong Kong
5) Soufflé (太平館餐廳)
For this, I just miss the fun of having the biggest Soufflé I have ever seen. We are just happy and amused. It is a dessert with a touch of happiness.
Address: 40 Hong Kong, Granville Rd, Tsim Sha Tsui, Hong Kong
