Dining Out - Ng Ah Sio Pork Ribs Soup Eating House

Brunch with the Mum and the Younger Sis today. We drove to Rangoon Road with the intention of breaking fast at one of the hipster cafes, but saw Ng Ah Sio and decided to go here instead for nostalgic reasons.

Dad used to bring us here when we were young and taught us the art of brewing tea while enjoying the delicious bak kut teh. Without him to carry out the tea ceremony, we started to bicker over the correct way to do it until the friendly server stepped in to correct us and offer her assistance.

Apart from getting a bowl of pork ribs soup each, we also ordered pork skin (delicious collagen goodness), tau kwa pok, preserved vegetables and blanched lettuce to share.

This place made headlines when it turned down then Hong Kong Chief Executive, Donald Tsang's request to dine at the place after its usual operating hours in 2006. He eventually got to dine at the place 5 years later and his successful second visit also made the news.

Somehow in my memory, the food tasted better when I was young. How I yearn for those days and those times.
