I haven’t posted in a while because I just spent the last 2 weeks in Hong Kong. It was wonderful to be back home. I ate some delicious food – mostly mum’s cooking but also revisted some of my favourite haunts.
Chirashi Bowl at Irori
The Chirashi bowl is my go to dish at Irori. In addition to offering incredible value with their lunch sets, their fish is fresh and their udon is scrumptious.
Hawaiian Pizza at Paisano
The Paisano pizza on Hollywood Road gets especially busy late in the evening as bar goers make a pit stop to fill up their alcohol filled bellies. I also joined in this tradition (minus the alcohol) and found the Hawaiian pizza to be an especially satisfying midnight snack.
No trip to Hong Kong is complete without having some dim sum. We tried a new place in Central that was recommended by my mother-in-law’s friend. I was quite impressed with the food though the service was a bit inattentive. Nevertheless, I would definitely go back.
I’m not usually a fan of this deep fried tofu dish but I found it incredibly moist and flavourful.
The morning glory cooked in fu-yu was absolutely delicious!
Shu Mai (Pork and Shrimp Dumplings)
I have to be honest – I’m really not a fan of the traditional Shu Mai – I’m more partial to the crappy 7-11 version so I didn’t even try it but it looked good!
Cha Siu Bao (BBQ Pork Bun)
One of my favourite dim sum dishes.
Another classic dish. It wasn’t too oily which it can be sometimes.
I’m used to less fat on this dish but it was still nice and crispy – but I still prefer the one at West Villa or Lei Garden.
Sadly that was the extent of my food photography. I did also go eat Pho Tai (Beef Pho) at Nha Trang, Kung Pao Prawns at Night Market and Dim Sum again but at the Deep Water Bay Golf Club. All delicious and worthy of repeat visits.
