What I ate in Hong Kong

BREAKFAST:
I had 2 breakfasts in Hong Kong and on both days, my plates looked more or less the same. I had lots and lots and LOTS of bacon. And this was the only time I was able to eat Dimsum! Hahaha FAIL!

LUNCH:
Lunch was sponsored by the office. And our colleagues booked us Spanish at Viva Ana! Hahaha
I got the set lunch (choose your own appetizer and main course from a selection), in which I chose a Chorizo salad for my appetizer and a tapas platter for my main course. It also came with a slice of a chocolate/orange mousse for dessert.

DINNER:
For both dinners I had in Hong Kong, it was a treat by good friends of my boss (who I was traveling with). It was a poultry (duck and goose) and seafood fest! However, still no dimsum hahaha

Serenade Chinese Restaurant
Our hosts chose this because it had a view of Hong Kong island where the light and sound show was. Unfortunately, that evening, the show did not come on 😦

Anyway, Dinner was still excellent! The highlights for this lauriat for me:

  • Peking Duck – I ate so much of this — especially the skin! It was so, so, so good!
  • Abalone – mainly because it was the first time I had this pricey dish. I liked it. Reminded me of a scallop/mussel
  • Scallops – it was a new way of eating scallops for me, because the scallops were sliced! I thought it was pasta/noodles the first time I saw it.

Very Good Restaurant
Another lauriat! YAY! But still no dimsum haha. This was the special request of my boss. She wanted to eat goose. So we ate there.

Highlights:

  • Steamed Garlic Prawns – YUM-MEH!! I normally don’t like eating with my hands when I am at a restaurant, but what the heck! haha It had a simple taste to it, but it was still sooooo delicious. The prawns were really fresh too 🙂
  • Goose – if I didn’t know it was goose, it could have passed for a duck for me. The skin was the winner in this dish (I didn’t like the meat too much). It had a special sauce that was tangy – like a sweet and sour sauce, but not quite
  • Steamed Rice – it reminded me of Le Chings steamed rice hahahaha it came with a sweet soy sauce and steamed pork ribs and chicken feet (I only had the pork).
  • Crabs – served on a bed of egg whites. First time to eat crabs cooked this way. I wasn’t blown away. Again, not a fan of getting my hands dirty in public… but sometimes, I do hahaha

DESSERT
This is a frozen MOON CAKE! We saw this at the airport on our way home and it intrigued me and my boss. We decided share a pack. There were so many flavors to choose from, but we go the cream cheese and coffee flavor. I did not taste the cream cheese, but I did taste the coffee. It reminded me of a frozen mochi.

My food experience in Hong Kong was a good one. Compared to my other trips, I actually ate quite less (frequency), but I ate so much (quantity).

I know Hong Kong has more to offer in terms of its cuisine. And I really want to go back to try more of Cantonese fare. Ihope I can return sooner than later. What are your favorite places to eat at in Hong Kong?
