Happy Friday Everyone!!!!
Before I head to bed for my flight tomorrow, I saved you guys the best post for last. A post dedicated to just FOOD! Ordering food in Hong Kong and China was definitely challenging. If there were no pictures, I had no choice but to use my broken Cantonese to order. There were some moments I just said “okay” to a dish and had no idea what is was until it came out. Other than that, I think I did pretty good on ordering some dishes the locals ate! Enjoy the pictures and try not to drool over them!
These were some local breakfast dishes in Hong Kong I had. They’re pretty heavy for breakfast food, but with all the walking here, we needed the energy!
Fan Tuan – Glutinous rice wrapped around fried Chinese donut and egg
Dan Dan Noodles – Sesame Sauce Noodles
Soup with Wontons & Beef Balls
Takoyaki Octopus Balls – A famous Japanese snack in Hong Kong!
Honeymoon Dessert – Mango Pomelo & Sago Grass Jelly with Sweet Soup
Red Bean Soup Dessert – Beans for dessert is weird right? But it’s SO good!
Red Bean Jello and Coconut Bunny Marshmellows
Pork Chop in Black Bean Sauce with a fried egg
Noodle Soup with Pork Cutlet and Hong Kong’s version of french onion soup – Can you believe this ENTIRE meal was only 4, yes FOUR US dollars!!!
The following pictures is from my FAVORITE meal from this entire trip…only because I love Huo Guo (hot pot) that much!
So many options of sauces, I didn’t know where to start!
A simple beef broth with veggies and herbs for flavor
My sauce creation!
loved, loved, LOVED the light decor in the restaurant.
Gong Cha – Green Milk Tea with Pudding
Matcha Green Milk Tea
And of course…I HAD to eat KFC and McDonald’s (no picture, b00). In Asia, they have dark meat chicken, egg drop soup, taro desserts, AND milk tea! By the way, is it just me, or does Colonel Sanders look a little Asian?!
How hungry are you now after looking at these pictures!? Anyways, I can’t wait to come back home and be greeted with the beautiful sunny LA weather!
