Having breakfast at Ng Ah Sio was a case of third time lucky. The first time my gf and I visited, it was a Monday and the shop was closed. The second time, it was closed for Chinese New Year. Third time round, our perseverance finally paid off. For those not in the know, Ng Ah Sio is the infamous Bak Kut Teh stall which turned down Hong Kong's Chief Executive, Donald Tseng, when he wanted to visit for a late night meal.
Bak Kut Teh
$5.50 gets you a relatively average sized bowl with 3 pieces of meat which are a little too dry and tough as compared to the one at Founder. The soup was the clear winner though, with its extremely heavy dosage of pepper and garlic. Very flavourful and guaranteed to make your nose run. I guess the word "Shiok" would be most apt in describing the feeling.
Please note that Ng Ah Sio opens early (6am) and closes early too (2pm) and its usually attracts quite a crowd whenever its open.
