Gourmet Tour With Hugo Leong – Day 1 : Tai Weng Wah Restaurant at Yuen Long, Hong Kong
I know this is a long waited post by many of my readers. Sorry for the delay of putting this up as I got a lot of catch up to do after the gourmet tour. Just a little bit intro to the gourmet tour. In Malaysia, most of the tour agency were offering the normal rushing the schedule tour where you rushing to meet the schedule all the time. Food and lodging were pretty crappy as they try to bring the budget down. It is not the same when you go on a gourmet tour. You will be flying on a premium airline, dine side by side with gourmet celebrity Mr Hugo Leong, eating good foods and stay in 5 stars hotel which located outside the busy town where you can have a good rest.
Gourmet tour is not something new in Malaysia. Last time this tour is usually joined by the restaurant proprietors or chefs for the sake of venturing into some old school foods in China and Hong Kong. All these foods were long lost in modern days and it can only be found at the place of the origin where the foods were first introduced. The tour agency that arranged this special tour is TOUR2U HOLIDAYS SDN. BHD. On the 5th of March 2010, the departure date for our tour is actually the 5th anniversary where they first started back in 2005. The one that started this tour is Ms. Anne Tan who is the tour leader for our trips. For this trip we were flying on Malaysian Airlines, one of the award winning airline in Asia.
Spacious and Colorful seats even in the economy class
The foods served to us on that morning are quite impressive. I am having a cheesy omelet set.

We were served with ice cream too. A bar of Magnum Mini Classic vanilla ice cream with chocolate
The journey took us about 4 hours ride on the plane and it was a smooth one throughout the whole flight. We touch down Hong Kong International Airport around 3pm and then we are having a few hours free time for us to walk around before we head to Tai Weng Wah Restaurant (the restaurant own by Hugo Leong) for our dinner for the first night. When you are in Hong Kong, you must try their “Yin Yeong” (Mix Coffee and Tea) and “Lai Cha” (Milk Tea). It is very flavorful and smoother than the one we have with our mamak stall.
