I’ve done a few posts on Beechworth, so today I wanted to change the whole scene and talk about Hong Kong 🙂
Why Hong Kong you’re asking? First all because I’m currently in Hong Kong ~ visiting family and friends so I’ve been exploring the food scene in here lately 🙂 It’s so different here than back home…they’ve got all this street food and snacks that we simply don’t have…but then I’m having serious coffee and cafe breakfast withdrawals! I still haven’t found a good place to have coffee here sigh…if anyone who’s come to HK before and know of a good place for coffee please leave me a comment!
Anyhow getting on with the blog ~ I wanted to give you guys a review and recommendation of “Kung Wo Dou Bun Chong” (公和荳品廠) in Kowloon City for more information about the location please go to the Open Rice Page which is the Hong Kong version of Urbanspoon.

As you can see it’s a very old and traditional shop where my mum tells me they haven’t changed or renovated for the past 35 years! And an interesting fact is… she went to primary school with the owner of this shop 🙂 She said her friend use to brag about it at school that she got to eat sweet beancurd for breakfast HAHAHA ~
I don’t know if many of you know what sweet beancurd is or tofu far (豆腐花) but it’s basically a very soft pudding-like tofu in sweet rock sugar syrup. It is a very traditional Chinese dessert and I’ve grown up eating it at Chinese restaurants when we go out for Yum Cha and whenever I come back to Hong Kong I always have to come to Kung Wo Dou Bun Chong.
You can have the sweet beancurd cold or hot, I always go for the cold just because I think it tastes better, but others have told me the hot is better because the soy flavour is more intense. Kung Wo has the best sweet beancurd because it is so SILKY and SMOOTH it’s incredible how it kinda melts in your mouth! If you have the sweet beancurd at the yum cha places in Melbourne…they don’t make it with real soybeans, a family friend who works at a Chinese restaurant once told me that they simply use the prepackaged powdered tofu and add water to it 😦 but I have serious cravings for tofu far nd will eat the faux sweet beancurd to ease the craving hehe
On the weekends you’re able to get the special which is a ‘Sesame Sweet Beancurd’ the sesame taste is really subtle that you can’t really taste it, which was a little bit disappointing but nonetheless I still LOVE the soft texture hehe
They’ve also good these tofu-related snacks 🙂
Mr Bao ordered us a plate of mixed snacks 🙂 he got us a pan fried tofu with a minced fish topping, green pepper and eggplant also stuffed with minced fish and on the right Chinese Turnip Cake another favourite of mine!
The best part is everything is under $15 HKD which is around $2.50 AUD!!! Definitely a winner 🙂
