The second Hong Kong food post. I promise you I'm not trying to make you any more hungry than I make myself when I look through my photos. But as always, good food must be shared!
You cannot go to Hong Kong and not eat the local breakfasts. Congee, 'zar lerng' (deep-fried dough wrapped in rice pastry), fried noodles and other types of deep-fried dough are all on the menu. It's a bit tough if you don't read Chinese since most of the places don't do English menus, but if you go to the more foreigner-friendly suburbs aka Causeway Bay, Tsim Shat Tsui, Central, Admiralty etc. you'll be in better luck. My favourite congee EVER is century egg congee. Look it up, I dare you.

|Wang Fu Dumplings: cold sesame sauce noodles & fried chives and pork dumplings|
I was craving dumplings one time at work, so I looked up where a good dumpling place in Central was. Turns out Wang Fu was the place to be, apparently. The dumplings are Beijing-style and made fresh every day. You can opt for fried or steamed, both of which I tried, but I prefer fried. As usual. The cold sesame sauce noodles were simply delicious. Slightly nutty, but also with a hint of wasabi and garlic as well, they were perfect for the humid day.
|Just A Restaurant: mango panna cotta, bread & butter pudding & creme brulee|
The best dessert out of the three was the mango panna cotta. Rich, creamy, smooth and intensely mango-flavoured, I wish I could have had it all to myself. The bread and butter pudding was accompanied by an walnut flavoured icecream. I'm not huge on walnuts in icecream but it was interesting.
