How Nam Shan Estate looks like in Hong Kong
Cheryl’s mini kids’-sized choco shot from Pacific Coffee. Perks of being a student, even further discount from the (already) discounted prices on the menu!
The sky became overcast with clouds after the rain, overlooking some distinct skyscraper buildings as temperature fell. The weather in Hong Kong is, unpredictable.
It would probably be one of the last times that we’d be dining at Nam Shan Estate together, so why not shoot some memories? The meals are overly affordable at Nam Shan Estate; that we’ve ordered 8 main dishes that comes with a drink per pax, and considering that we’ve ordered a few other bottles of beers added up to only 72HKD per person.
Alike Singapore’s combination of wet markets and food centers, Hong Kong isn’t lacking at all. They have plenty of them here - Mong Kok, Causeway Bay, and here in Kowloon Tong (Nam Shan Estate). The closed shutters are stalls that would be opened in the day for business, selling a range of food, to clothes and amenities that you’ll be able to find. Nested at the corners of these stores would be restaurants and food stalls set up for business from day to night; some of which are worth returning for.
Nam Shan Estate is famous for their egg-waffles (雞蛋仔) and waffles in condensed milk and sugar (格仔餅) - source 1 2 3 4. The home-owners, however, are really shy about it though. There’s something really just good about their mixture that makes such good waffles, with the traditional metal plates over the hot fire stove. Other food worth mentioning would be their squid and octopus legs but the queue for the waffles triumphs that any-time. Be prepared to queue though, but for less than 10 minutes as it moves pretty fast! Something every City-U student would go there for :)
Well… Nobody really wants to leave after curating this amount of memories here. But it’s all about time to go back home :) One thing I’ll defo miss about Hong Kong - The abundance of food, cafes, local delicacies and cheap shopping!
Happy graduation everybody!
