Yung Kee's Century eggs

Hello! Sorry for the lack of updates - been very busy, and busy procrastinating. I've still got many posts that I haven't blogged about including a dessert tasting at Gusttimo (will be up as soon as I'm done editing the humongous photos).
I've just gotten back from Hong Kong (stressed my pancreas lots by eating many meals and desserts everyday) and in Shenzhen (shopping and relaxing) and I'm now back relaxing infront of my laptop eating the famous Yung Kee century eggs. Didn't eat at their restaurant tho cos the last time I ate there July the food wasn't impressive enough to warrant another visit. Though I must say that their century eggs are worth the cholesterol, crawling up the mountainous area in Central and lugging back since they have such a nice oozy molten center. They're the equivalent to half boiled eggs in the century egg world. And the ginger is really nice. In fact, the ginger is the first preserve ginger that I actually enjoyed and thus now I am less adverse to eating preserved ginger (though I do enjoy ginger in nearly every other form except its original form).

Yung Kee
Address: 32-40 Wellington Street, Central, Hong Kong
