Thai Food in Sai Kung

This past weekend in Hong Kong was a blast.  I did a lot of damage on the shopping front AND I got to go to one of my favourite restaurants.  Janice and I went to Sai Kung for some Thai food at a restaurant called Sawaddee Thailand.  BEST THAI FOOD I’VE EVER HAD (I have yet to make it to Thailand).  I’ve been to this restaurant several times now; I’ve been able to visit it each time I’ve come to HK.  My favourite dish here is the pork neck.  After we ate dinner, we wandered around the shops for a bit (I bought a new hat, thank you for asking,) and then we went to Sweetheart Desserts for some fried ice cream!

Thai-style veggies.

Thai papaya salad.

 

Raw shrimp.

Thai spring rolls.

Pork neck-this is my favourite dish here.  The beef skewers are a close second (not pictured in this post).

Fried ice cream.  This was really well done, it was crispy on the outside and not greasy at all.  Vanilla ice cream on the inside.

I really enjoyed spending Saturday with Janice!  Thanks, girl!

Staycation with Abby, Part 2

I took Abby to a couple of my favourite places when she came to visit.  We went to Ahora’s, a lovely little Mexican restaurant in the market.  It’s where I usually go for dinner when I don’t want to cook.  The food is great quality, portions are filling, and it’s pretty quick service.  Plus, they have this fun salsa bar where you can try a bunch of different salsas.

We also went to Benny’s Bistro for lunch one day.  It’s located in the back of The French Baker in the market.  While I’ve never actually bought anything from the bakery (just haven’t done it yet, but everything looks really good), I’ve eaten at the Bistro many times.  My mentor introduced me to the restaurant, and it’s where we usually go for lunch.  I love it because the menu changes every so often, and there’s always a special.  They get quite busy sometimes, so reservations are a good idea.   I ended up getting tuna, and Abby got some potato thing.  Both dishes were so delicious!
