Day 2 was an easy day. We went walking in Ocean Terminal. We had to get a watch there so we ended hanging out there checking out the different stores. Again, we found a City Super that sold the good belgian waffles that look like hotdogs so we bought 1 each for our snack before going for our late lunch.

We saw a long line at Crystal Jade. We didn't know how long it would take us to get a table but we signed up nevertheless. We could've eaten somewhere with less people but I think that day wanted to be part of the chaos. We waited for about 30 minutes to an hour to get a table.

Here's what we ordered...

Seafood soup with green vegetables

Crispy tofu skin with mushroom filling,

Pork spareribs with some red sauce...I forgot the name but it was sticky, sweet and yummy.

the best seller, Crispy eel

Stir fried noodles with pork and mushrooms.

We didn't have room for dessert anymore so we decided to walk around for a few hours before heading to Cova. Here's what we tried there...

Cafe Latte,

Chestnut tart,

Chocolate banana cake

Mango Napoleon,


Ok, here's the verdict...the coffee was good but the cakes were not that great. The good thing about it was the place. the ambiance was really nice. I felt like I was in Europe. The price too felt like I was in Europe as well. We spent about HK$600 for 3 cakes and 3 coffee drinks. If you ask me though if I will go back there again, I think I would. I just won't eat there everyday but it would be a nice place to have a treat.

Next stop was Spring Deer over at Mody Road for dinner. Since we still full from our late afternoon snack, we just wanted to try the Peking Duck to see if it was still any good. We had it 2 ways. The second way was deep fried with garlic and chillies, salt and pepper

When this came to the table, everyone beside us looked and checked what it was. I don't think it was common to have this as the second way here but we usually do it this way even in Manila. I loved it with black vinegar. Of course, we didn't finish our food. We just loved it that we got to taste the Peking duck. It was still good but I think I've tasted better. For the price, it was very reasonable.

Day 3 is up next...
