Here is a continuation from Part 1. So much food!
These pictures are from a restaurant that specializes in a specific kind of Chinese cuisine. Sadly I don't remember what it was called but it was extremely tasty.
The egg custard from Hong Kong is one of the most delicious desserts I have ever had. The best "dan-tah" (egg custard) I've ever ate was at this place called Honolulu Coffee Shop. The crust was flaky, tasty and buttery, the custard was smooth and just sweet enough. We also got the toast with condense milk on top which is a favorite for breakfast amongst a lot of Hong Kong people.
We went to a Peking Duck place per the husband's friend suggestion. We had a mini reunion with his childhood friends and really enjoyed the food.
The hubby's childhood friends, him and I at the table.
They even had soup dumplings!
And some dessert:
We stopped by a noodle place which are all over Hong Kong. It's usually a hole in the wall but great to eat since it's cheap and it's good. You can find these anywhere.
We had a lot of food with his friends again and this time we had hot pot! Delicious.
The family and I went to a place that was a semi hole in the wall where they make congee (rice porridge), stir fried noodles and jjong (rice wrapped in lotus leaves). I've had all of these in New York's Chinatown and I always loved it but having it here was life changing for me. I still don't like NY's Chinese food as much as Hong Kong. I'll definitely stop by a place like this next time i go to Hong Kong. If you can read Chinese, this is the place we went to:
