Kowloon HK

We've spent two nights in Kowloon & today we will meet up with Dennis Monticello who has invited us to spend a couple days with him in Stanley.  For most of us, Stanley means Stanley Market.  I loved shopping there on my previous trips here.  I still look forward to it, but I'm more intrigued by life in Stanley.  

But first, the highlights of our stay in Kowloon, on the mainland. From a touring perspective, that would be the Kowloon Park, HK History Museum, the HK Art Museum and the Symphony of Lights.

From a food perspective, the highlights would be the peanut butter waffles (Barrista Cafe), the salt & pepper soft shell crabs (Hing Fat), the arugula & prosciutto pizza (La Taverna) and the fresh sardines & lamb curry  (Macau). The first three are all on Ashley Street and Macau is on Luck Road.

Display at Hing Fat - the Salt & Pepper Soft Shell Crabs were crunchy and spicy. Yum!

OK, it's time for us to get back to packing to move to the very foggy (today) Hong Kong Island.
