On the second day, my friend Pei Yu brought me to Chinatown to have hong kong style breakfast.

Big Wong King Restaurant

She is a foodie lover and she found this restaurant through Yelp. I felt like I was in Hong Kong as soon as I step in. No frills, cheap and delicious chinese food!

Congee with century egg

We ordered congee with century egg. This bowl of congee with century egg is really good and it brought me back my childhood memories. It has been long since I had such a good and comforting bowl of congee with century egg. My childhood favorite! When I was a little girl, my family would go to Fortunate Restaurant at Toa Payoh and one of the dishes that we always order is congee with century egg. More than 10 years ago, they serve old school push cart dim sum and the restaurant is always crowded during weekends. They stop serving push cart dim sum, the standard drop over the years and it is now taken over by another restaurant brand. 🙁

Chee cheong fun was a little too thick and dry.

Roast duck noodle

Another must-order dish is roast duck noodle! The roast duck was flavorful and wonderfully tender. Slurps!

American Museum of Natural History

It was raining so we decided to stay indoor and visit the American Museum of Natural History. This is where the movie Night At The Museum was filmed!

We used my student card to get the student tickets. I graduated from poly two years ago but hey, I am still young to look like student right? :p

“Dum-dum, gimme gum-gum!”

Vietnamese Sugar Cane Grilled Pork Skewers

THIS IS A SUPER AWESOME DISH. You can chew the sugar cane and suck the sweet juice after the grilled pork. Yums…yums…YUMS!

Hot Chocolate

She has cravings for western style breakfast and we went to this random restaurant the next day.

Scrambled Eggs with Smoked Salmon

I was disappointed with the food on my last New York trip because we went to the wrong place with the wrong recommendations. But with a little bit of patience, you will find an amazing number of good restaurants. Good Food = Satisfied Tummy = Happy Me 🙂
