Tsui King Lau, is a famous Hakka restaurant in Hong Kong, with a history of 54 years. The owner of Tsui King Lau called Yao Jiancheng, is the third boss of this time-honored restaurant. He added a sentience to his menus:”Stay with you over half a century.”

“I have stayed the same during the fifty years and that is why our menus remain the same,” he said in one of his interview. Yao is a typical Hakka man, with a principle of hardworking. Even in his seventies, he goes to work on 10:30 every morning. Except for changing money and making out bills, he will write down menus and who reserved the seats through a brush. His works are pretty good, adding a traditional feature to this little restaurant. “What is a holiday? I seldom have a holiday. Maybe I was born as a cow, working all the time,” he laughed.

In the 80s and 90s, the golden age of Hakka food, there were almost 130 Hakka restaurant in HK. Nowadays, only about 20 of them survived. His attitude towards life might explain why Tsui King Lau still exists till today.

He mentioned that his restaurant earned reputation not from the beautiful decoration but from the authentic Hakka food. He believed that the quality of the food is exactly Tsui King Lau’s brand. The flavor of Dongjing Backed Chicken in Salt(东江盐焗鸡),one of the specialty, retains its original taste like fifty-four years ago.

“We have run this restaurant for a very long time. Some customers shared many memories with us. So I think I will try my best to keep on running it,” Yao said.

Mr. Zhou, a frequent visitor said that many years ago, he took his sons here and till today, he even took his grandsons here. He loved Tsui King Lau’s authentic Hakka flavor and he was afraid if Yao retired, the flavor would be changed.

“If I am in a poor health, I will leave it to my son. He will replaced me to take care of the restaurant and our regular customers. We will continued to manage it by all means,” Yao said.

Time flies as usual, and Tsui King Lau remains prosperous. Another day has passed.

However, such restaurants cannot become successful without the real delicious food.

You want to know how ?  Let’ s date with Angelababy and let she tells you!

The café fit out is clean and chic. The stylish decoration uses black and white as its main theme which creates a relaxing, joyful dining environment. There are numerous of Angelababy photos displaying on the wall of “frame”, which are taken by the famous photographer Wing Shya.

The food is rather contemplated. The presentation is neat, inviting and comes with a generous serving portion. With an attractive presentation of the food, customer can surely enjoy an ultimate dining experience with a reasonable price.

From the video, you can see the dining environment of Baby Cafe is quite good even in some busy shopping areas such as  Mongkok, Tsim Sha Tsui and Tuen Mun. As for the food,  I have to admit that no girls can resist the dessert temptation.

Food & DelightsⅡ- Date with Daniel Wu

When I say you can date with Daniel Wu in Wongkok , I am not  joking.

You don’t believe ? Let me show you how it happens.

If you pay attention to the video, you will find that it is possible for us to see Daniel Wu in this special restaurant.  At least the host met him there, right ?

It is because  he is the boss of Monster Sushi 🙂

Daniel and other owners of Monster sushi  were likely to create something creative  with playful spirit. That is why they named it Monster.

They still retain childlike innocence of their childhood by the Japanese Monster animation effects. Thus, it led to the concept of Monster Sushi.                                      —— About Monster Sushi

For Monster Sushi, Daniel Wu seems like a gimmick  stunt to attract more people to dine here. However, to some extent, it is not the only reason for them to come. It is because for younger generation,  they are more willing to pay for some innovative things.
