JUL 31, 19 .. HONG KONG RESTAURANTS .. TEQUILA JACK'S

Our friend and buddy and good neighbor, the one, the only, 'Zilla made me do this post and probably more to follow.

Over on dot.net, 'Zilla left the below comment :

Hi Cap,

Naturally, please go-on regarding your visits to the many places you have traveled to and enjoyed your meals! It’s always fun to hear about the places and restaurants you visit – and of course about the meals and the photos that go along with your visits! As they say, a picture is worth a thousand words!


'Zilla

So here we go with more photos of restaurants and meals therein.

TEQUILA JACK'S .. KOWLOON .. HONG KONG

Note their 'nifty' motto in their sign I show below. 

.. the hot place for a cold one.

Patti and I discovered Tequila Jack's just under five years ago (2014) when we were staying in a hotel just up the street from Tequila Jack's.

Add to the mix the following : Patti and I love Nachos.

So it was love at the first bite.




Nice outdoor seating when the weather is right. 


During our visit a week or so ago, it was hot and it was humid and it was right to eat inside and to enjoy the air conditioning.

Tequila Jack's is, to put it correctly, some dandy watering-hole.



After work, during happy-hour time, Tequila Jack's goes bonkers. 


So Patti and I went in the mid-afternoon and had Tequila Jack's, more or less, all to ourselves.


Below you can see Patti sitting at our table while yours truly shoots some photos.



The last thing that we need is a Menu.



Vegetarian Nachos, hold the sour cream.


In our opinion, the Nachos here at Tequila Jack's are the best in all of Hong Kong. 

Our long-gone friend Simon..


..believed that Tequila Jack's Nachos are number 2 all time but behind a restaurant in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

Below are a few more photos of Tequila Jack's Nachos.




I did not shoot a photo of the three bowls of red salsa that we enjoyed with the Nachos.


Well 'Zilla, that's it for now.

JUL 30, 19 .. THREE HONG KONG RESTAURANTS .. FIGOS, PASSION AND SUN YUEN'S

In this Post you will see three of the several restaurants that we enjoyed in Hong Kong during our recent visit. 

The first one, Figos, is brand new to us. A special friend of Patti's invited us to come to Discovery Bay and enjoy lunch and a visit. I nibbled and then let the ladies visit and took-my-leave. 

So here is a very quick look-see at :

FIGOS SEASIDE CAFE, DISCOVERY BAY

The first three photos below show the main (front) entrance to Figos.





The next three photos show the rear entrance to Figos.





Below is the interior of Figos from the rear entrance. We sat at the far end just inside of the front entrance.


Now we go up front. The below photo of the bar was taken from our table. 



LUNCH AT FIGOS

We began with Bruschetta as an appetizer. Bruschetta is an antipasto from Italy consisting of grilled bread rubbed with garlic and topped with olive oil and salt. Variations may include toppings of tomato, vegetables, beans, cured meat, or cheese.


It sure was wonderful.


With it we enjoyed two Chicken Caesar Salads.




Now we will go back to Kowloon and enjoy lunch at the second restaurant.

PASSION BY GERALD DUBOIS ON MODY ROAD

Patti and I have eaten here several times previously. 

On this visit, I treated one of my special friends here in Hong Kong to lunch on his 65th Birthday.



Inside we walk.


It is a cafeteria-style restaurant. You pick what you want.



I really love their salads so I got a plate with three salads of my choosing.



They also have the most wonderful bread. By the loaf or by the slice as-you-like


Desserts for those with a sweet-tooth.




For those Hong Kongers on-the-run at lunch-time, they have pre-made sandwiches.

If you are going to dine-in, they will prepare any sandwich combination you select.

My friend opted for a sandwich.




His sandwich and a my selection of three salads.






Thanks and Goodbye to the Passion Restaurant in Kowloon.


SUN YEUN'S

Patti and I have been eating here since 1996. We have a great rapport with the owner and with many of the staff. Over the years I have taken many photos. The below photos are but a tip-of-the-photo-iceberg.



Standing at the back of Sun Yuen's and looking towards the street.



Singapore Rice Noodles for two.




Singapore Rice Noodles up-close-and-personal.
