Whenever we go to Sham Shui Po, it’s almost our tradition to have lunch at Dragon Centre first before we proceed with our shopping.
Dragon Centre is a 9 storey shopping arcade which features a roller coaster inside the mall. Sadly, the roller coaster is there for display only. It has been closed since mid 2000s.
First in our food consumption today was lunch at Cafe Med. Located at the 6th floor of the 9 storey Dragon Centre, this restaurant serves Western Cuisine.
I like its interior very much. So cozy and relaxing.
Hubby ordered a pasta dish while I went for a baked one. The cost of each dish is a little over 50 HKD or Php 300.00. About normal pricing for a restaurant in Hong Kong. Quality of food is good as most of HK’s restaurants. Taste could be a little better. If you want something to make you full and satisfied, you could try Cafe MED.
Next in our food list is dessert of course. A sweet and crunchy dessert is what I was craving for so we went for this.
I am not sure what its name really is. But I think I remember it being called Emperor’s Candy. Peanuts in a chewy and sweet shell wrapped in white crunchy strands. Priced at HKD 20.00 or Php 120.00, quite expensive but it’s a must try.
After dessert, my hubby and I parted ways. I went to shop clothes while he looked at some gadgets and accessories. Yes, Sham Shui Po has it all. It even has toys and some kids’ clothes.
After an hour, we met again and my sweet hubby brought me my favorite KFC Egg Tart.
Almost like our Lord Stow’s in Manila. This is priced at 7 HKD or Php42.00.
Continued our shopping and while on our way to the bus stop, we found ourselves in 1 block with a burger shop. There were only Chinese characters so I don’t know what it’s called. It is in front of a football field.
But it’s definitely like finding treasure in a lost cave. The place is not your usual restaurant. It only has enough equipment to cook and prepare the burgers. No fancy packaging, no fancy interior or exterior.
Hubby ordered the Black Pepper Beef Burger. It’s good but not anything special. I ordered the Grilled Chicken Burger and I must say, it’s delicious. Instead of a patty, they used real grilled chicken meat which was juicy and tasty. You add their special Thousand Island Dressing and you’re really in for a treat.
Better than my favorite Grilled Chicken burger from McDonald’s. And it will only set you back HKD 16.00 or around Php100.00.
So there, hope your tummies growl more because of these yummy food!
By the way, you can go to Sham Shui Po by taking the MTR. It’s on the Kowloon Side. Tourists usually stay on Hong Kong Side. So you can take the train to Central Station and transfer to the Red Line to make it to Sham Shui Po. It’s about 7 stations from Central.
You can take any exit and still be around shopping and food area! Nearest exit to go to the Dragon Centre is Exit C1.
