So it's actually been a while since I finished my internship in Hong Kong. I have made it back in one piece, although slightly heavier than when I departed. Hehehe...there was just way too much good food in Hong Kong for me to not try! So much that I've had to split my fooding into another two posts, otherwise it would just be mega long.
|Cold Chilli Chicken Feet|
|Cold Chili Pork Ears|
|Caffe Habitu: The Italian Gem ($112 HKD) with Pu'er Tea Latte|
|Hard Rock Cafe: onion rings, mac & cheese, mini burgers|
Amazing onion rings. Fairly good mac and cheese. Great burger patties, but the bread was a bit too dry. I wish we had one in Adelaide.
|Nha Trang: prawn meatballs, soft-shell crab, beef brisket pho|
|Coffee Alley: chocolate icecream & banana waffles|
|Iced Peach Jasmine Tea & Iced Fresh Fruit Tea, Smoked Chicken Toasted Pizza & Loin Cheese Croissant Sandwich|
My favourite thing from here was definitely the toasted pizza and the fresh fruit tea. The tea was filled with fresh fruits and had a real tang to it, while the pizza was comforting and cheesey. The waffles were really thick and didn't taste like the waffles I'm used to. The brown part is fairly crunchy while the bottom layers are firm and spongey.
Gei dan zai! Or some people prefer the term 'eggettes'. Made from the same batter as waffles are, the eggettes are put in a different shaped pan so it comes out with little egg-shaped puffs. Good eggettes should be crispy on the outside but filled with soft, chewy batter on the inside.
P.S. For those wondering, there was an earlier post about HK fooding but being the clumsy idiot that I am, I accidentally deleted it and couldn't get it back.
