- I’ve been working like crazy
- Everyone eats out in Hong Kong
- I live with my parents, so I’ve stopped cooking anway
- etc etc etc
Anyway, all just excuses. I do have a large backlog of photos I wish I’d posted. Here are a few from recent travels and unique eateries around Hong Kong.
a vegetarian restaurant near ngong ping, hong kong
a delicious steamed tofu dish with chinese olive leaves – made a slightly sweet, salty mixture on a very smooth fresh tofu.
Delicious savory pastries: a baked shell stuffed with shredded turnip and carrot, topped with shrimp, loaded with chili sauce…. oh it was SO good.
A rich bowl of laksa noodles: fresh noodles in a thick spiced coconut broth with shrimp – cheap, and so satisfying. I love that they cut up the noodles too so you can eat it all with a spoon – i’ve never seen anyone do that in Hong Kong, but I guess Singapore has the real laksa deal.
Dosa – South Indian (Malayali, I’ve been told!) food – delicious roll stuffed with spiced potatoes, with loads of sauces and chutneys to dip from. The uncle who owned the shop kept stopping by our table and loading our tray with more sauce!
Thick, creamy kulfi (North Indian ice cream) in the clay pot
– pistachio flavoured. Beside it, a kalamansi (lime) and honey drink. Both so lovely.
Breakfast in Singapore – I could eat this every day! Rice and dried salted fish wrapped up in a banana leaf, loaded with chili sauce. A kick-start to the day! Add a cup of kopisi (malaysian style coffee) and a coconut jam toastie, and it was perfect!
(Singapore was a great trip, if you couldn’t already tell)
