Day 15: Goodbye, Taiwan! Hello, Hong Kong!

IMG_8294IMG_8295

Checked out of the hotel and went to eat lunch. Ha

At The World of Curry. I’m sorry … I don’t know what world you’re from but it did not taste good at all. If this is how the whole world’s curry taste, then something’s wrong.

I’m sure they mixed old rice with the new one and they did not fry the chicken or fish well enough. YUCK. Oh and the curry wasn’t even spicy … failure.

So dissatisfied.

Then we shopped around some more and I bought this new product TonyMoly has. It’s a beauty store and for some reason, I ventured in and saw these egg pods. They’re so cute! And they’re used to wash your face and supposedly get rid of blackheads. Each one has their own purpose. It’s expensive but hopefully it works.

I already asked if they sold this in US … they don’t. So I guess I’ll have to ask Wilson to buy it and ship it to me if it works really well. Winking smile

After buying more things, we went into a Taxi and decided getting to the airport way early is better than lugging our luggage around.

We shopped a little more and I bought Irish Whiskey & Cream Chocolates!

It’s soooo good. Sadly because we turn of the A.C. in the flat during the day, I think they’re melting. Hope the liqueur doesn’t get out! People better eat some for me or else they’ll all be in my belly in less than a few seconds flat.

Since we got there early, I went on my Kindle and played around and read some pages then listened to some music on my iTouch.

Look closely and you will see “For The Kids”. I’ll always be seeing those words and think of everything but what they actually mean.

Duck Gizzard. YUM. Better than chicken gizzard. I’m not a great fan of chicken gizzard.

We waited for a good 3 hours before getting on the plane so I was happy I bought a bread from 7/11 before getting into the Taxi.

Dinner on the plane … China Airlines has bad food …. mushy rice and not delicious as Delta.

On the plane there was this super tall guy that reminded me of someone but I couldn’t figure it out till I got off the plane. He reminded me of Beaver from Greek! Holla!

Got back to Hong Kong and since we didn’t finish our meals, we went and got noodles and veggies.

A bowl of noodles with innards. And a bowl of noodles with fish tofu. Two plates of veggies. A plate of fried fish skin.

Satisfying.

Red Oak Grill

My sissy, brother, and Tammy were home and so on May 17th the whole family went to:

Red Oak Grill
2004 South Mason Road
Katy, TX
(281) 392-2612
www.redoak-grill.com


We ordered and shared the Stuffed Jalapenos | $3.99. It’s under the Sides section. It was really yummy. It wasn’t very spicy and the cheese was pretty sharp. I didn’t even need the ranch dressing that came with it.

For my main dish I got the Gyro [savory beef and lamb slices with creamy Tzatziki sauce, served with Tabouleh and Hummus] | $11.89. It’s under the Red Oak Specials section. The gyro was okay. Beef and lamb was moist but I think I went on a bad day. It was a little on the bland side. Hmm … maybe I’m just comparing it too much with Pasha’s. The hummus was really regular. But the thing that ruined the whole plate for me was the Tabouleh. Tabouleh is usually made of bulgur, finely chopped parsley and mint, tomato and spring onion, seasoned with lemon juice and olive oil. I’m not a fan of mint and that taste just kind of grosses me out. I whacked it off my plate onto my dad’s. He seemed to love it.

I would not come back here again. The food overall was not great at all.

Pasha Mediterranean Grill

Jane’s parents invited Roger and I to lunch when they came into town and we ended up at:

Pasha Mediterranean Grill
9339 Wurzbach Road
San Antonio, TX 78240
(210) 561-5858

Sadly I didn’t note what these are so I’ll try my best to do so.

They brought a big Naan to your table, for free! It is so light and fluffy. So yummy!

You dip the Naan in this Sauce. I’m not sure what it’s called but it was very delicious.

Jane ordered me this plate. I’m not sure what it’s called but it has beef and lamb, hummus, some kind of sauce, and a yummy salad. I cleared the plate and was super full.

I love this place and would definitely come again. Just need to find someone to go with me
