The Bunny's Hong Kong trip - Dinner @ Mui Kee Cookfood Stall & visit to Avenue of Stars

Exploring 12 levels of Langham Place left the bunny ravenous. We headed to Mui Kee Cookfood Stall at Tsim Sha Tsui for dinner. Again, it's a recommended place by the bf's friends.

We had a little trouble with ordering as the menu was in traditional Chinese, and there were no pictures!

"We just eat whatever I've ordered ok?" The bf was asking after he made the attempt to order. Again, there was the vibe for diners to order fast, eat fast, and get the hell out of the place.

Mui Kee is a bustling restaurant...
First up was the 黄金虾(HK$68/ S$11.33). The prawns were fried at such high heat that even the shells became crunchy. It's coated with a generous layer of salted egg. Sinful, but totally worth the calories.

The oyster fritter 煎蚝饼(HK$68/ S$11.33) is really crispy. It's full of fat, fresh and juicy oysters that are hidden within the batter. On the downside, it's kinda greasy and I'm almost 99% sure that this caused my indigestion that night.

Our last dish was the dough fritters 鬼马油炸鬼 (HK$68/ S$11.33). It came with a reddish sauce that resembled tomato sauce water, and it's something which I did not care for. On the other hand, the dough fritters themselves were delightfully crunchy and stuffed with a bouncy fish paste.

It's definitely a cholesterol-laden meal but what the heck, I'm on vacation!

We paid a visit to Avenue of Stars after the heavy dinner.

It was a mad rush to get to the place by 8pm as the bf wanted to catch the light show "A Symphony of Lights" across the Victoria Harbour. The multi-media display is very much a tourist trap, featuring lights and laser beams dancing in tune to the music in the background. It gets boring after 5mins, but does make a good backdrop for photographs, which was the bf's main motive.
