Hong Kong Adventures: Day 1

DSC_0069

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!

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.

  1. Don’t know why I get this tiny excitement to read that one of the bloggers I follow is travelling in my hometown. Hope you have a good time here in HK!
