Quick dinner at Nam Kee and then gelato at Holly Brown

Nam Kee really requires no introduction. It’s been around for a while now, and I have to say, it is one of my favourite quick and cheap eats! They specialize in noodles with dumplings, fish balls, beef balls, spring rolls, also known as the Chinese version of fish fingers. The menu is quite simple, you can either create your own, or pick from the pre-set ones. You can also add anything that you want at an extra cost, which is not too expensive.

Hubby knew exactly what he wanted, noodles with vegetable wontons and preserved vegetables. The wontons were deliciously slippery and tasty! The soup was a little sour and tangy. The noodles were thin which was also slippery and scrumptious! Hubby seemed to have enjoyed this and demolished it!

I had the ‘jumbo’ which consisted of fish balls, octopus balls, spring rolls, mini wontons, fish fingers and tofu. The rice noodles were soft, tender and cooked to perfection. The soup, laden with MSG was deliciously flavourful and I was incredibly thirsty afterwards. ‘Jumbo’ was indeed BIG, I couldn’t finish this as it was just way WAY too much and filling!

I think their specialty is the pork brisket noodles with spring rolls, which I will try next time.

If you haven’t been, I would definitely recommend this place. Its quick, dirt cheap and absolutely tasty! Great for pre AND post drinks!

Hubby and I walked pass Holly Brown prior to dinner and had to return. I have a very sweet tooth and was craving for some gelato. Holly brown is the new café, opened by Hong Kong’s first Barista champion, Tracy Kwok. Not only do they serve coffee but also serve glamourous cupcakes, and ‘hand-made’ gelato. You can either pick their individual gelato or the pre-set gelatos, which we both opted.

Hubby ordered the mochalicious, which consists of mocha / chocolate gelato, chocolate, and oreos served in a waffle basket. The waffle was crunchy and fresh, the gelato, deliciously sweet and absolutely ‘mochalicious’!

I was too full for coffee but will definitely be back for a cup cake and coffee.

It was a generous serving of gelato, more than enough for the both of us.

We were both delightedly full and waddled / made our way to Azure to meet some friends for drinks…..
