Tasty Hong Kong

10 Feb

An HK favorite: macaroni and beef in cream of tomato soup with toast and eggs

One VERY important thing about Hong Kong (or at least to me) is the abundance of tasty food. No matter where you go in Hong Kong, there will always be a place near by (or in most cases right next to you) where you’ll be able to get a bite to eat. Due to Hong Kong being the ¬†economic hub of Asia, many people of many different ethnicity come to Hong Kong and bring with them their cuisine. Whether you’re a Malay, Singaporean, or even a Nigerian, there’s a restaurant making food from home. Heck, there were even Halal restaurants, and quite a few of them. (and I must say the kebab was pretty good). My top pick has to be the Japanese ramen restaurant Ichiban, which would consistently have a line outside longer than ten people. If you’re homesick, there’ll always be a McDonald’s right around the corner, but most local food is actually cheaper and tastier. Speaking of tasty, dessert in Hong Kong is pretty darn good. A lot of the desserts are fruit-based and primarily consist of fruit in some form, so you don’t have to feel guilty when eating a lot. I know I sure didn’t! Now: some food photos!

Mango with black rice and sago at Satay King. This is a dessert!

Surprisingly good discount sushi

Ultra cool and tasty Ichiban ramen

I don’t remember the name of the food or place, but this halal dish tasted good with some mint sauce!
