I'm like a walking devining rod seeking food and not water and usually wander towards food or at least a fresh food market!
I decide to have some green tea and perhaps just a nibble. Emperor's Garden is at the entrance to Chinatown (under the gates) and opposite Paddy's markets. It's crowded with people having breakfast before heading into the market.
I am seated near the door and its breezy, but knowing its a quick eat its okay.
I go for a steamer of har gao and spare ribs in black bean. That's all I can manage this morning. It's good. In fact I think the har gao beats the ones from Sky Phoenix! The spare ribs are surprisingly tender, not full of bones and little meat and not full of taro pieces, in fact there are 3 small pieces of fried tofu that have sucked up some of the tasty, oily sauce and are nice and chewy when bitten into.
Great for a quick dim sum brekkie when your on the move.
