Red Penny 旦王花 – Hong Kong

Even though we all had a full stomach from all the Kai Kee dessert, we were still up for some Thai food.

Red Penny is a Thai restaurant that has more of a resemblance to a exotic hotel/resort than a restaurant located in a Yuen Long village.

fried shrimp balls….

chicken and pork satay

grilled pork cheek

tong yum goong soup… we asked for all items to be non-spicy/as little spice as possible, so this soup turned out to be just salty……

tiger prawns in red curry… really really tasty curry with a hint of prawn flavour! I used the naan to lap up all the curry!

chicken curry… yumm!

Kei Kee Dessert 佳記甜品 – Hong Kong

One of the main reasons why people trek out to Yuen Long is for food! The wife cake from Hang Heung Bakery and the dessert from Kai Kee are extremely famous.  Thankfully, I have really nice cousins who’ll drive me out to Yuen Long to eat!

Kai Kee is always full, even in the non-peak times!

This is the famous B仔涼粉 (B-boy grass jelly with nata de coco toppings, papaya, peach, lychee, jackfruit, mango, melon and kiwi).  It’s gigantic and can be shared with more than 4 people! The fruits are fresh and sweet and the grass jelly’s chewy.

I’m not a big grass jelly fan so the mango rice roll is my favourite.  It’s not actually rice roll but some sort of coconut jelly.  The mango is thickly cut and is sweet.. which is made even sweeter by the mango pulp!

some other desserts that we ordered… The upper green balls are the mango pancakes and the lower green balls are durian pancakes! Yumm!

Apart from desserts, Kai Kee is also famous for its snacks.

fish balls and rice rolls with peanut and seafood sauce….

the famous chicken wings  雞翼尖… don’t be fooled by its appearance, the wings are extremely spicy! Apart from the grass jelly, this is the other most famous dish.  I don’t eat spicy food but for spice lovers, this is apparently really tasty.. spicy and garlicy.

my 10 yr old niece loves this.. soy-sauce marinated chicken feet.. I don’t eat feet.. it’s like sucking on toes…….
