Since we have been back, we've been using up the little time we had before school starts to check out 'new' places to eat.  New to us, that is.  One of most delightful places we'd tried is this small, really local place tucked away in Sheung Wan called Ma Sa Restaurant (孖沙茶餐).  It serves the usual cha chaan teng () fare, but what I was really interested in trying was this humble dish they have --three fried eggs (drizzled with dark soy sauce) over char siu (叉燒) slices, served on a bed of steaming white rice.  Such a simple dish, but really hearty.  What's even greater is that the entire dish costs less than HK$50 (around US$6) --and that's including an icy glass of lemon Coke!

We got there around 11:45 am and got seated right away, but around noon, people started coming in and a line was forming outside (under the blazing summer sun, in really humid conditions no less!).

If ever you are in the neighborhood, do check it out for some really local treats at a remarkable price.  Don't expect anything fancy. You might have to share a table with strangers during peak time.  It's no-frills, humble, but good value for money.

Hubby likes Soy sauce when we steam veggies and Rice so I think he would like the eggs drizzled with Soy. Sounds interesting combination and good. Glad to see you're link up is back on. :)
