I had a wedding to attend on my second day at Hong Kong, which meant it was WEDDING BANQUET TIME! Food at Marco Polo Hotel was amazing (and I expected no less), but I also had some pretty awesome fast food before I went to the banquet. And pretty awesome food after too.
The picture above is a set up from the Hong Kong protesters in Causeway Bay. It’s really organized and pretty clean. Just terribly inconvenient if you’re trying to cross the street.
YAT LOK RESTAURANT! YAY!
CHAR-SIU FAN! (Roast pork on rice) MY ABSOLUTE FAVORITE!!
SIU-NGAU FAN! (Roast goose on rice.)
Okay and now time to go to Marco Polo Hong Kong hotel…
ROAST SUCKLING PIG – OMGAWD SO GOOD. SO FATTY. SO GOOD.
FRIED CRAB CLAW WITH MINCED SHRIMP AND GOOSE LIVER! SO SO GOOD.
SAUTEED SQUIDS AND SCALLOPS WITH CELERY – SO YUMMY!
DOUBLE BOILED BIRD’S NEST WITH CRAB MEAT SOUP. WAO SO GOOD.
BRAISED ABALONE WITH VEGETABLES. AT THIS POINT I’M EATING MOST OF THE VEGGIES BECAUSE I FEEL SO STUFFED.
STEAMED GROUPER – HI FISHY!
FRIED CRISPY CHICKEN! After this point, no one was eating the fried rice or shrimp dumpling soup so the waiters laid it out and then whisked it out almost right away. I didn’t even get to eat them…
DESSERTS! RED BEAN SOUP WITH LOTUS SEEDS AND LILY BULBS – SO AMAZING. SO GOOD. SO WARM. SO SWEET.
FRESH FRUITS! WITH DRY ICE WAFTING OVER IT.
CHINESE PETIT FOURS. I DON’T KNOW WHAT THE YELLOWISH BUN-COOKIE-THING WAS BUT I HAD THE JELLY MOCHI WITH RED BEAN IN IT. YUM…
THE FOLLOWING DAY, WE HAD MOCHI SWEETS!
GREEN TEA MOCHI!
HONEYMOON DESSERTS!!! AHHHH!
MANGO WITH POMELO AND SAGO, AND VANILLA ICE CREAM ON TOP. IT WAS GOOD.
SESAME SOUP AND ALMOND TEA WITH RICE BALLS (FILLED WITH PEANUT PASTE) – HOT, GOOD, AMAAAAAZINGGGG!
GRASS JELLY WITH WATERMELON – REFRESHING!
THAI BLACK GLUTINOUS RICE WITH COCONUT JUICE AND TODDY PALM.
BUBBLE TEA! IT’S FROM TEN REN! IT WAS GOOD! Super sweet though. Getting 0% sugar from now on…
AUSTRALIA DAIRY COMPANY – NOT TOO OVERRATED! THANKFULLY!
MY DINNER: EGG SANDWICH AND NAI CHA – IT’S VERY SIMPLE (BECAUSE THAT’S ALL THE CHINESE I COULD READ) BUT IT WAS SO GOOD. THE EGG WAS SCRAMBLED WITH CHEESE AND SOME GOODNESS. JUST SO GOOD.
