The good junk - Lan Fong Yuen

Think Chinese Nando's
Lan Fong Yuen is/was one of Hong Kong's most famous daipaidongs - I say was because it's now spawned two permanent stores*, and only a couple tables occasionally on the street. The classic green cart is still there though, complete with stools on which people used to squeeze themselves for a 3.15pm milk tea. (I don't know why exactly but 3.15pm (or "3-o'clock-3" - 3 o'clock and the long hand on the '3') was always known as afternoon tea time in HK).

Queue and eh? - Butao Ramen

Let's start with the good:
How beautiful is this onsen egg?
Gooey but set yolk, like thick, wet clay; whites cooked and not runny... It could have been good.
