Lo Wu, Here We Come - PART 5 - Eating

Part 5 - Eating

The possibility is you will be shopping for up to 10 hours.  So where to eat?  There are a number of options available depending on your budget and time constraints.

If you arrive before the shops are open, there is an option to do early Dim Sum at one of the large Chinese restaurants within the centre. Otherwise there are lots of lunch options throughout the centre.

Ground Floor

Fairwood Restaurant

Fairwood Restaurant

Great food at Fairwood restaurant
    This Chinese chain restaurant serves very basic set Chinese meals.  I don't mind it as it is cheap, cheerful, friendly and quick.  You don't need to speak Chinese.  Go to the counter.  Point to the meal you want on the wall.  Pay with your octopus card, credit card or cash.  Take a number and your dish will be delivered to you. Very easy and tasty.  Please note there is nothing fancy about this food. Expect a nice stew type dish with taro, potato, meat and rice.  Soft drink, iced tea or hot tea can be ordered with this meal.

    3rd Floor

    Dim Sum restaurant
    There are a number of other Restaurants on the 3rd floor and no 
    doubt many others.  

    5th Floor

    Laurel Restaurant

    Huge, a little bit fancy, Dim Sum restaurant selling very authentic Chinese food to mainstream western Chinese food.  It is reasonably priced but adds up quickly.  If you have no time constraints then enjoy.  You may need to prebook for lunch so you don't have to wait, but the turn-over is pretty quick.

    Another huge Dim Sum restaurant is also Acacia Restaurant.  Not as famous as Laurel but 
    just as good, cheaper and less crowded. I haven't been there but I have heard it is great.

    This brings us to the end of your awesome day in Lo Wu.  I'm sure you had fun, a few laughs, 

    a few frustrations, possibly paid more than you expected for that special item, 
    got an bargain and came home with a roller full of crap you never thought you needed!

    Exhausted but so much fun!
