Following a Taiwanese to Hong Kong 跟著台妹遊香港

Sometimes I'm just curious about how foreigners think about my hometown, a place where I came from. So today I'm gonna share something, and somewhere that one of my Taiwanese friends asked me to take her there when she was in Hong Kong for a short stay. I was quite surprise that most of them I had never even heard of them before. Now I kind of doubt that whether I truly came from Hong Kong or not...


有時候我真的很好奇到底外國人是怎麼想香港的,所以今天要跟大家分享一些景點和美食,全都是一個來自台灣的朋友帶我去的。我覺得最驚奇的是,我以前從來都沒有聽說或是去過這些地方!我現在很懷疑自己到底是不是香港人了哈哈⋯⋯

Visit Star Ferry Pier Ferry Terminal & Victoria Harbour


I guess no foreigner would leave Hong Kong without a ride on a Star Ferry. This cheap ride gives you a spectacular Victoria Harbour view of Hong Kong. No wonder my friend asked me to take her there for thousands of pictures! It's even more beautiful with a blue sky!


到訪天星碼頭及維多利亞港


我想應該沒有外國人來了香港卻沒坐過天星小輪吧?這個廉價的坐船體驗會讓你飽覽最美的維多利亞港,也難怪我的朋友都要我帶她去拍照喔,因為真的是好美好美,尤其是在天晴的時候!


Take the Peak Tram to the Victoria Peak


This could be one of the first thing you should do when you are in Hong Kong. The view from Victoria Peak varies as it depends on the weather conditions. However, if you were lucky enough, like me, you could even take nice pictures later on even it was extremely foggy at the beginning. The best comes for those who waited! It's proven now (by me). This is so true!


乘坐山頂鑬車到太平山頂


大家來到香港的第一件事情怎麼可以不先去太平山頂看看喔?在這裡看景真的是很靠運氣的,天氣不好的話,霧太大就什麼都不用看了。但是如果你像我一樣,只要好好等待一下,儘管一開始濃霧茫茫,最後還是能拍出以上的照片!真的,絕對沒騙你!


Take a rest at the one and only Starbucks at Duddell Street, Central


If you ever felt tried after a long exhausting day, why not taking a rest at this Starbucks in 60's Hong Kong style? This cafe does not only offer you the usual things you could get from other chained store like coffee and latte, but also something very Hong Kong, like red bean pudding cake, milk tea, and more! This could make a very good photo spot, and a place to just chill with friends and family! This Starbucks is located at Duddell Street, where it's just right next to the well-known Duddell Street Steps and Gas Lamps! Don't forget to check them all out!


到中環都爹利街的唯一星巴克休息一下


走了一整天,你肯定也會覺得累吧?那不如就到這家六十年代的香港特式星巴克休息一下吧!這可不是一家普通的星巴克,你不只能夠在這點到咖啡和拿鐵,你還可以點到一些超級地道的香港小吃砵仔糕和奶茶!這裡還是一個超級好拍的「景點」,絕對是一個跟朋友或是家人閑聊的好去處!這星巴克就剛好在中環都爹利街,旁邊就是有名的都爹利街石階及煤氣路燈,絕對不能錯過的喔!


Explore Choi Hung Estate with locals


Rainbow is one of the biggest hits at the moment. And I could see why this makes our Choi Hung Estate becomes a place to be checked in. To be honest, I saw this a thousand time before, and I didn't find the best out of it until a foreigner took me there. We explored a bit of this estate, by following me (I'd call myself a local). This place couldn't be more localist, you could possible see people who live there doing their laundry, students in uniform playing basketball, or even some elderly doing Tai Chi exercise.


跟本地人去探索彩虹村


最近「彩虹」超級火,連帶影響讓彩虹村也成為了打卡熱點了。老實說,我以前經常都看到這裡,覺得就很普通啊,直到我那外國朋友把我帶去了,我才發現它的美。她就跟著我這個本地人到處走走看看。這裡真的是非常本地和地道的!基本上你都能在這裡看到鄰居們在曬衣服、學生們在打球,又或是一堆在做太極的長者。


Take a "Transformer Tour" to Montane Mansion


You know what? I have never seen Transformer in my life. But everyone talked about this place like you couldn't miss, even my Taiwanese friend, so she took me here to check this Monster Building out. I should probably watch the movie before I go there again, so that I could put myself into the movie scene!


參加海山樓的「變形金剛團」


我自己其實從沒看過變形金剛的電影,可是大家都好像說到一定要去看看似的,就連我的台妹朋友,也要帶我去看看這「怪獸大樓」。我想我應該要把電影看完,之後再來一次,可能我的感受就會變得更不一樣了!


My friend and I talked about food most of the time for the whole trip. She took me to every single eatery that I had never even heard of (or been to), I guess it's because all these restaurants are well-known by tourists? So now I'm gonna tell you how I think about these places as a local.


我跟朋友在整個旅程當中,說到最多的便是美食了。她帶我到了全部我都從沒吃過,有些還從未聽過的餐廳。我想這些都是旅客都愛去的地方吧?所以現在我想讓你們知道,到底我這個本地人覺得這些美食怎麼樣。


Eating dim sum in Sai Wan neighbourhood at Sun Hing Restaurant


Sun Hing Restaurant 新興食家 No.8 Smithfield Rd, Markfield Building, Sai Wan, Hong Kong


This dim sum restaurant is cute! Well, I mean the staff there, they made me feel as warm as a home. I couldn't even believe that they cut the the glutinous rice with Lotus Leaf in a heart shape... they are just so friendly! Their dim sums are very traditional and delicious! I would definitely recommend you to try every single dish till you are too full!


到西環新興食家吃點心


這茶樓真的是超級可愛!我是說,這裡的服務員,他們真的是很友善,就好像家人一般!我真的沒想到他們會連糯米雞的葉子剪成愛心形狀⋯⋯ 而且這裡的點心很傳統很好吃!記得要把每個點心都嘗一下喔!


Overall 總括而言: ★★★★☆


Get a rice in a clay pot at Hing Kee in Temple Street


Hing Kee 興記煲仔飯 No. 15 Temple Street, Yau Ma Tei, Kowloon


I think rice in a clay pot is definitely one of my favourite Hong Kong dish! And this time my friend took me here. It was my first visit to this restaurant and I liked it very very much! Rice cooked in a clay pot tastes never the same as streamed rice! I like how the bottom bit overcooked and dried out which makes the rice crispy and crunchy! Also, enjoy it with the soy sauce provided is always a good idea! We also ordered oyster pancake, my friend said she likes it more than the one in Taiwan! WOW Hong Kong wins this time! I can't think of any more words to describe it but it's just too yum!


吃煲仔飯就要來廟街興記


我覺得煲仔飯應該是我其中一個最愛吃的香港菜了!這次因為朋友介紹,她就帶我來了這家吃飯。真的超級好吃!煲仔飯吃起來就是跟蒸的不一樣!我最喜歡的就是底下超級脆的飯焦!而且加了醬油後更好吃!我們另外還點了一份蠔餅,朋友說她覺得比台灣的蚵仔煎好吃!嘩!這次香港先贏一分呢哈哈。你們一定要來嘗一下喔!


Overall 總括而言: ★★★★☆


Enjoy high quality Hong Kong dessert at Cong Sao Star Dessert


Cong Sao Star Dessert 聰嫂星級甜品 23 Tai Wong Street East, Wan Chai, Hong Kong


Now it's time to talk about dessert after meal! Mango Pomelo Sago is their signature dessert that you do not want to miss. It filled with so much stuff in it! You could enjoy every bit of it in every single spoon! This makes the price very reasonable! I'd definitely come back for another one when I need a dessert, or two!


吃高質素的聰嫂星級甜品


吃完飯當然就要吃甜點啦!你們不能錯過的便是楊枝甘露了,這是他們最有名的招牌甜品,料超足!真的是吃每一勺都是料!絕對是物超所值喔!下次如果我想要吃甜的,一定要再來點一份,不,兩份也不錯!


Overall 總括而言: ★★★★★


Trying out different favours of Mammy Pancake


Mammy Pancake 媽咪雞蛋仔 G/F, 7 Kin Ming St, Tusen Wan


Nothing beats everything made by our mammy! I think everyone will agree with that. Mammy Pancake has no exception. It offers the best and a huge variety of egg waffle that you can‘t even imagine. That was my very first time I ever tried a Matcha Egg Waffle with chocolate and I’m just so into it! The waffle was so fluffy and crispy, and the chocolate chips was melting but crunchy; it’s just an all-in-1 sensational taste! I’d definitely come back and try different favours next time!


嘗嘗不同口味的媽咪雞蛋仔


媽媽做的菜當然是最好吃的!我想大家也會同意的吧!「媽咪」做的雞蛋仔也不例外。這裡有著你數不清口味的好吃雞蛋仔,我也是第一次嘗到抺茶巧克力口味的雞蛋仔,吃過就忘不了!雞蛋仔外脆內軟,而且有點溶化的巧克力還是很脆!簡直就是一份雞蛋仔包含多種口感!下次一定要再來嘗嘗別的味道!

Overall 總括而言: ★★★★★


Grab the most Chinese dessert at Kai Kai Dessert


Kai Kai Dessert 佳佳甜品 G/F, No. 29 Ning Po St, Jordan, Kowloon


Not so many places have offered the most authentic and traditional Chinese dessert in Hong Kong, but Kai Kai has everything for you to try out as a tourist, especially if you are a foreigner. In here, they serve us all different sorts of homemade dessert in old classic Chinese styled bowls. I have to tell you that the Sweet Potato Soup with extra Ginger did have the taste of home. Although the ginger bit was a quite strong for me, it was tasty in overall. If you are looking for the taste of local, this is the place for you.


到佳佳甜品吃最中式的糖水


在香港要找到最正宗、最傳統的中式糖水真的很難,但是佳佳甜品就能給你想吃的,尤其如果你是外地人,那就一定要來嘗一嘗!他們還用上最經典的中式餐具和碗。我點的番薯湯水真的很有家的味道。雖然薑味有點太強烈,不過整體來說還是挺好喝的。所以如果你們在找香港的味道,這裡就能給你想要的喔。

Overall 總括而言: ★★★★☆


Thank you my friend who came all the way to Hong Kong from Taiwan to be my personal tour guide! Hopefully next time when you came visit me again, I'd be an expert of HK!


謝謝我的台灣朋友來香港,陪我去玩,又當了我的私人導遊哈哈!希望下次你再來看我的時候,我已經是香港專家了吧!
