Hong Kong-style Breakfast

I brought Jayvon to the nearby Old HongKong Tea House, at Katong Village for breakfast.

This is a cosy little 24-hour place, and the food’s quite nice. The decor is so-so and pretty sparse, as you can see.

But they display photographs of Hong Kong actors and actresses of ‘old’!

And we settled in for a nice cosy breakfast…

Yes… authentic Hong Kong wanton noodles! After reading friends’ blogs on their recent trips to Hong Kong, it has made me reminisce the wonderful food they had there!

Plus yummy iced Horlicks!

What a perfect start to our Saturday! Read more about the rest of Jayvon’s day – Julian’s birthday party at The Polliwogs – in Jay’s blog!

Some friends of ours from Hong Kong used to cook for us on Chinese New Years. It was fabulous! They moved and Chinese New Years has never been the same:(
What a wonderful day you had! There is something special about mother-son outings!

That looks so yummy! I'm drooling. I love wanton noodles, but I have a question about the iced Horlicks. When I was growing up in Hawaii we had a candy called Horlicks. They were cholocate malt candies. Do you know if that drink has anything to do with those candies?
