Hong Kong: Food Porn

Warning! Don't read this post on an empty stomach. The risk is all yours.

I spent roughly half my childhood living in Hong Kong. Dad used to visit Hong Kong & Taiwan every 3 month for business and stayed in both countries up to one month each visit. I've always tagged along since I was 1 year old. Therefore Hong Kong kinda feels like home to us. Nowadays we don't visit Hong Kong that often, only once a year to indulge our taste buds with scrumptious Hong Kong food.

These are some of my favourites:


BBQ Suckling Pig
Very tender and juicy meat with crispy skin. YUM! it's difficult to express how delicious the dish is. You really have to taste it yourself. Take a bite and you will see a unicorn flies over the rainbow. Wait, OK I think I exaggerate but believe me, it's beyond yummy !



HK Salt Steamed Chicken
Salt steamed chicken (pak cham kee), this is the must try menu when you visit Hong Kong. It may looks like Hainanese steamed chicken in Singapore but this one is more tasty. Maybe because the cooking method is different, this one tastes more salty and juicy. And despite it's steamed, the skin is crunchy.
When I eat this, I see 2 unicorns fly over the rainbow :p



Sweet & Sour Pork

Meat Feast !
I love going to Causeway Bay traditional market in the morning and buy some food from this stall. The choices are Char Siew (BBQ pork), Siu Yuk (roasted pork), honey glazed fried pigeon, roasted duck and steamed chicken. They tastes heavenly.  I'm drooling now by looking at this picture. Gosh ! I really need to book my ticket to Hong Kong soon :p



Panda Custard Bun. Too cute !
I ordered this one in a dim sum restaurant in Ocean Park. Actually I'd much prefer BBQ pork bun or crispy egg tart over custard bun. But when I saw how cute they were, I couldn't resist to get one :p
It tasted quite nice though. The texture of the bun was a lil bit spongy and the custard was creamy and not overly sweet.

Cherries in Causeway Bay Market
I know cherries are not specially from Hong Kong. But we don't have fresh cherries here in Bali. So I can only get them when I go abroad. I love cherries so much,  I wish I could grow them in my backyard. Anyone who's coming to Bali, please bring some fresh cherries for me, OK.....tee hee hee :p



Durian Mochi

Mango Pudding with Bird's Nest

Mango Combo

Hui Lau Shan, the mango heaven. I've heard about this for quite long time, finally I got the chance to taste  their famous mango pudding. They have several outlets in Hong Kong and I visit the one opposite Times Square Mall. Actually I'm not really a fan of mango pudding but I was just curious what's all the hype about this place. There are so many to choose from the menu. I ordered Mango Pudding with Bird's Nest which was served with fresh mango chunks, bird's nest and ice cream. While the Mango Combo was served with assorted fresh fruits. The pudding was light and n sweet with a hint of mango. It's quite nice but actually I'd prefer jello which is more chewy. I love the durian mochi though, the durian filling didn't taste too strong. Just lovely!



HK Street Food


Hong Kong street food always makes me crazy. Too many yummy items to choose but I only have one stomach. How to decide? They offer wide variety of light bites from sausage, meat balls, squid, curry fish balls, deep fried goodies to some soups and drinks.
But my most favourite item is.......


HK Egg Waffle!
I love egg waffle since I was a kid. I would run and squeal with joy every time I saw the egg waffle stall and waited patiently while the seller was baking my waffle. The piping hot egg waffle was then put into brown paper bag, it smelled so soooo good and sweet. The outer part is thin and crispy while the "balls" are spongy.
Ohhhh heaven ! Hong Kong you will always be in my heart stomach :D

    Btw, if you lived in Hong Kong / Taiwan when you were a kid, can you speak Cantonese or Mandarin?

    1. I speak fairly basic Mandarin only. I always rely on my parents who speak Mandarin fluently but not Cantonese though :p

  12. You bought only one dan taat? You should have bought two. Why? Well, if you were to buy only one, you would soon discover that you enjoyed it so much you wished you’d bought more; but if you bought three, you wouldn’t enjoy the third one as much as you enjoyed the first two.
