Yumm

Yummm... that stuff tastes good!

If you wanna get down to the most unhealthy yummy hong kong side-dishes though, I think the "french toast" stuffed with gobs of peanut butter then deep-fried, covered in honey and possibly condensed milk, then topped off with an equally large slab of butter takes the cake Yumm =D

But yeah it's that place under ninkazu
Lai Jing sounds more like the 'Crystal' in Crystal Mall

Lang Jing would be 'pretty sperm'

There's no pineapple. The name comes from the pattern of the 'pei' (skin/top), which is supposed to look like the outer surface of a pineapple.

Hah I get what you mean but I was referring to more of the meaning of the words
"Lai" being beauty
"jing" being jizz

Anyone feel that the Lido Pineapple Bun seems like nothing at all? I mean, there really is no difference before eating and after eating it. There seems to be very little material inside.. Get what i mean? It tastes very good though, just not very satisfying.

On another hand, you guys should try Happy Date Bakery across from RC, no. 3 side. It has, imo, the best Pineapple Bun in Vancity. Their food is also not bad, very inexpensive.

While you guys are on that mall, make sure u try Torarenbo. It's a japanese restaurant with set bento lunches. Less than $10, and you get rice, loads of beef, sushi, tempura. goddamn!

I think so, especially for tourists since they have clearly-written English menus. IMO they have great baked pork chop, great curry, good fish soup stock and fish balls. Their 'sizzling grills' are HUGE and good too (well the chicken and pork chop are good).

Another good one I recently tried is Kai Kee in Mong Kok. It is a huge restaurant, has a HUGE menu with a lot of pictures and English, and pretty good food from the 2 dishes we tried. We'll go back for sure. http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&source=s_q&hl=en&geocode=&q=yau+ma+tei&sll=37.0625,-95.677068&sspn=47.972233,56.777344&ie=UTF8&hq=&hnear=Yau+Ma+Tei,+Hong+Kong&ll=22.316061,114.169369&spn=0,359.994491&z=18&layer=c&cbll=22.31614,114.169352&panoid=VSCrjIAwaD0igCnDZHrSOw&cbp=12,244.77,,0,13.39 (they have one in TST as well, I believe)

Went back to Kai Kee in MK for a mixed grill:



They get an A for quantity, but a C- for quality.

It had steak, chicken steak, pork chop, a grilled prawn, sausage, bacon, some cabbage, and tomato. Also includes a bun, soup, and cold drink. All for about $9 CAD.

The chicken steak and pork chop were fine. The sausage and bacon were what you'd expect. The prawn wasn't fresh at all. The beef was so disgusting I didn't eat it after one bite.

But 3 of the 4 dishes we had there were very good, so I'll go back. I want to try their baked chicken steak
