Ever since our first visit to Wong Tai Sin around two years ago, it’s one of the places we almost always never fail to visit when we’re in Hong Kong. Also, since the MTR stop to get to Wong Tai Sin is on the same line as Prince Edward and Mongkok, we would, more or less, always make a side trip to to visit the temple as well. 😀
Something that I like about Wong Tai Sin is the fact that there’s a mall nearby so you can easily find a place to eat before or after your visit to the temple. During our last visit, before heading to the temple we went to Temple Mall and ate at Shanghai Teng – one of the various Chinese restaurants that can be found in the area.
Minced Pork with Bean Curd in Chili Sauce – which I didn’t try because I’m not really fond of bean curd. My mom thought it was delicious though.
Fried Pork Buns. I was expecting it to be more.. fried, I guess? To be honest, I think these looked steamed than fried. Haha, still they were good!
Shrimp with Conpoy Dumplings. Or simply put, siomai! I think that it’s shrimp-pork and even without condiments it is already good as it is.
Sliced Beef with Chili Oil in Noodles Soup. This is my order. The beef slices were a bit fatty, but they were tasty nonetheless. I also like the noodles that they used. Contrary to its name (or even its appearance) though, it isn’t really spicy.
Special Sichuen Soup with Noodles which was my mom’s order. Somehow, for me I thought it tasted like peanut butter lol. The noodles that they used for this seemed to be firmer compared to the beef noodles.
After our lunch we went ahead to visit Wong Tai Sin Temple. If you’re interested in fortune telling or are curious about it (or just want to go for fun) there are a bunch of fortune telling and soothsayer stalls in the premises. No need to worry about language barriers as there are a handful of them that knows how to speak English.
