    Has anyone ever opted for the Western "cuisine" at Queen Mary? What is that like? Is it best to stay with the Chinese?

    don't forget to take flip flops for the showers though!!

    food disgusting... bring your own. there's also a small 7-11 downstairs for essentials.

    jsut so you know...pizza hut (pok fu lam) delivers there, just give your address as the ward # & bed #. make sure you have them deliver during visiting hours....

    any of the restaurants in sohodelivers.com (i think that's the website) will deliver there as well.

    Polly, I had the oatmeal for breakfast, and it was pretty good. I just brought raisins and craisins to add to it. (They called it "sweet porridge"). It's already sweetened. I didn't ask for western food, though, because there were a few times when my friends brought food in for me. But what I did try of the Chinese food, wasn't too bad. For sure it wasn't the best I had ever tasted, (a bit bland), but it definitely wasn't the worst either. Basically they give you a big bowl of rice, some kind of meat in a sauce (chicken or pork), and some kind of steamed vegetable. It's the same type of meal for lunch and dinner. I agree, though, bring at least some snacks or something to tide you over between meals.
    All the best,
    Katie

    when i was there they served sweet & sour HOT DOGS, well, at least the frankfurter sausages...

    i wouldn't feed that food to my dogs, so there was no way i was going to eat it....YUCK!

    maybe i found the food so repugnant because i was there so much!
    for the first pregnancy i was in 5 times for a total of about 4 weeks. i delivered that time 3 weeks early.
    the last time i was in 8 times for a total of about 5-5.5 weeks and i delivered 4 weeks early....

    i always took bread and peanut butter with me. i also had fresh fruit brought to me. my helper(during the second pregnancy) would cook lunch & dinner for me. a few times i'd go down to the canteen. not fantastic food, but MUCH better than the stuff they serve upstairs!
