Hong Kong is always the gastronomic capital of Asia and, to say with some justifiable audacity, of the world. There are a great variety of places for whatever food you may have in mind. Not just food, but good food. This is no empty talk because the author has heard comments like this from friends living in other big cities like Paris, London and Sydney. While you may spare a special trip here to the haute cuisine restaurants listed in The Michelin Guide Hong Kong (MGHK), what you will not want to miss are the starred local eateries.
This Chung Kee Dessert shop is not, but should be, included in the MGHK. This shop is a popular place among the locals for desserts of variations bred locally. Pay dearly for the dessert is not required in Chung Kee. In fact, the yummy desserts are so reasonable priced that from the evening at about 8 to mid-night, the shop is always full-house and you'll have to wait awhile for your chance to be seated. It is close only on Sunday.
Chung Kee is a must-go place for the author's friends visiting Hong Kong, including Crist of GR Diary when we met in Hong Kong some time ago. The author himself is a frequent there. It has two or three branches which you can find on its website. The best is the one next to the Temple Street night market. Go there for dessert and afterwards, loiter along the night market where you'll find lots of photographic opportunities; luck is not necessary. Maybe we will bump into each other there next time -- to both of us this requires luck!
