After five years, I’m back in this glorious city of Hong Kong for food and shopping! More for the food, less for the shopping though. (As an American, my big-boned-ness does not quite fit in most one-size-fits-all clothes in Hong Kong’s local stores.) So all I really care about right now is stuffing my face with awesome Hong Kong food, and then worrying about whether I’ll fit into my cocktail dress for a wedding later.
OMG THE MEATS!
THAT SUCKLING PIG!
HAAGEN DAZS MINIS – OPTIONS IN EVERY BOX!
WHY DON’T WE HAVE THESE FLAVORS IN THE STATES?!
CRISPY DELIGHTS? WHAT ARE THESE AMAZING GOODNESS?
A VARIETY PACK OF BARS! NEVER-ENDING OPTIONS!
SINCE I COULDN’T CARRY ICE CREAM ALL DAY WITH ME, I SETTLED FOR AMAZING FRESH KIWI JUICE.
DIM SUM TIME! (Tim Ho Wan at Olympian City.)
THE BEST CHAR-SIU BAOS IN ALL OF HISTORY! (And I don’t like char-siu baos normally.) A.K.A. ROAST PORK BUNS
CRISPY AND FLAKY ON THE OUTSIDE, STEAMING HOT AND MEATY ON THE INSIDE.
HA-CHEUNG – SHRIMP AND SCALLIONS IN FRESH RICE ROLLS. SO GOOD.
NGAU-CHEUNG – BEEF IN FRESH RICE ROLLS. MY FAVORITE DIM SUM DISH.
FRIED TURNIP CAKE. OH GOD, GETTING FULL…
STEAMED SPARE RIBS WITH BLACK BEANS. YUM YUM YUM.
TONIC MEDLAR AND PETAL CAKE – Okay honestly that was the name on the menu. But it tastes better than it sounds. It’s more like a jelly with chrysanthemum and wolfberries. It’s not overly sweet, and it’s quite refreshing after eating all those savory foods.
DID YOU KNOW THERE’S FAUCHON AND LADUREE HERE?! I didn’t go. I can get macarons in New York any time. But just goes to show how high-end Tsim Sha Tsui is.
