# Read trip summary here
If you ask me which place I'm most disappointed in Hong Kong... I think should be Temple Street (庙街). After so many scenes and memories we got from Hong Kong movie and drama series, we always looking forward to this place, it should be very antique, old-time feel and happening, but in reality it just a very normal street, maybe one or two fortune tellers if you are lucky, and I don't see anyone singing on any stage. Let's hope for the food.
Read about Hing Kee (兴记) claypot rice from some reviews, maybe it is a bit risky to try claypot rice here since this is so common in Malaysia, but it is hard to skip this because they are located at the beginning of the road and waiters keep on yelling their name when you walk by.
Coke in bottle, how many restaurants still selling this here? I drink so many bottles in my life, why? There are 3 things that my mum will refill regularly: Gas, Coke and Cintan noodles. Unhealthy life isn't it ;-)
We didn't order the typical Chinese sausage chicken claypot rice as we want to try something new, so we decided to go for the Pork Neck Jowls Rice Pot (猪颈肉煲仔饭) with an egg (HKD 30) and Mantis Prawn (椒盐拉尿虾, HKD 50). They also serve whole crab with rice pot if you want to try.
The rice pot come with almost plain rice and you can add as many sauce (sort of soy sauce but not that salty) as you like. We are glad that we have added an egg, else this pot of rice will be too simple. I like the rice as it's cooked just well and the meat is so tender, but Cantonese people like me wish to add more stuffs into it if possible, sausage, salted fish, mushrooms... ha ha, but aunty doesn't allow me to add salted fish as she thinks this combination will not work.
I basically give up on the mantis prawn because it hurts my finger, my tongue and my mouth. It tastes good but I have no idea how to peel it, so ended up I don't enjoy this. As a visitor I don't think you should travel all the way here to try this claypot but if you have tried most of specialties in Hong Kong, you can give this a try too.
As usual, a complete meal must ends with dessert. We went to the nearby Yee Shun Milk Company (义顺牛奶公司) to try the Double Boiled Milk (炖双皮奶), my first time to this dessert but not quite like it, maybe can do it again next time at their main shop in Macau or try the double boiled milk with ginger. I'm more enjoying the milk that I took away, how good if this can be delivered to my house everyday.
It was so happening along Nathan Road because of China National Day count down event, we joined the crowd and handsome ah sir to watch the fireworks and that ends our second day in Hong Kong.
