Look how ready we are to eat!
There's a famous bakery in Hong Kong known for their "wife cakes". It's a flaky cake with lotus paste on the inside. There was also another cake/cookie that had the "1000 year old egg" on the inside. Both are well worth trying.
The fast food to eat in Hong Kong is a place called "Cafe de Coral". The hubs was hungry so we stopped by really quick and he had some food and iced coffee/tea. My favorite thing to eat is the baked pork chop, fried rice in tomato sauce. I haven't been able to find the same in NY even though they claim it's the same.
Look how cute the hubs and his mom are.
We went out with some family to a place where they are famous for their food. The rice with some pork fat, the desserts are super famous too. They were voted the best crystal jelly with custard and the yellow sponge cake was to die for.
Street food is what my husband lives for.
He loves "chow daufu" which is stinky tofu. Boy is it stinky! I could smell it blocks away but he LOVES it!
We went to the famous Lei Yu Moon where there are many seafood markets where fishermen come and sell their foods to consumers that are wanting to eat. Then the seafood is taken to the restaurant of your choice and prepared how you want. It was amazing to see all the live seafood, a lot of it looked incredibly scary. I tried a lot of things I've never tried before in my life, like the mantis shrimp which looks like a giant centipede but tastes like delicious lobster.
They also sell fruit outside Lei Yue Mun so we bought some mangosteen. One of my favorite exotic fruits.
My in laws, husband and I outside Lei Yue Mun. One big happy family!
And my last two dinners in Hong Kong. Sushi and Cantonese.
I miss Hong Kong food so very much and is one of my favorite foods to eat. I am supposed to go again early 2011 so maybe I'll have more pictures and new foods to share. Will keep you posted. Next up will be places I visited in Hong Kong.
