Walking on Hennessy Road in the direction from Wan chai MTR towards Causeway Bay is always quite an unpleasant experience. It’s usually crowded full of people queuing for buses and waiting at busy intersections to cross the road, bus fumes and general noise from the sheer volume of buses that ply the street.
On a Saturday or Sunday morning however, it can be a bit more pleasant.
Along the stretch of Hennessy (walking in direction of traffic) between Fleming and Stewart intersections, a few new shops have opened to sell a variety of groceries.
The first one I came across was a shop called A CAP coconuts specialising in coconut based products. This is unlike the fresh coconut shop in Wan chai market.
This shop sells more processed coconut based products, ranging from coconut oils for consumption to skin products and drinks.
It was here that I spied this…
Oooh kaya. I have a bottle that my mum
Just brought up for me, but that’s the best Singaporean pandan Kiliney road kopitiam kaya…
This stuff was probably made from processed pulp that didn’t make the cut for consumption in its natural state. I turned the bottle around to look at the details.
Well it doesn’t say Mao Shan Wang… So how good could it be?? When I finish my kaya at home, perhaps I’ll come back for this.
A few shops down the street, another snack shop selling cheap tidbits of all sorts had this durian crispy cake.
I’m not terribly impressed with the packaging and wonder who’s buying?!
