New Year’s Eve in Hong Kong: Day 2

I love waking up in a hotel bed! Not that I don’t love my own bed at home, but somehow the crispness of hotel sheets just don’t compare. Am I the only one here?

Anyway, we roamed around a street looking for a noodle place we had stumbled on the last time. Sadly we never found it–either it was closed on a Monday or forever.

But no harm done. We got to sightsee (even though I was starving) and experience the busy market scene. And we walked into a little restaurant serving noodle and rice dishes. Simple yet AMAZING food.

Notice the hanging pig’s head? I think it might’ve been smiling.

Here’s in the kitchen of the eatery where we had our lunch. I know, I have a habit of walking into people’s kitchens without permission.

Beef curry with rice–extra juicy and tender meat in a unique curry sauce (unlike Indian or Japanese curry). Aha, it’s Hong Kongese curry.

THE BEST one of all – pork hamburger patty with egg and rice in a savory and sweet sauce. The patty tasted like Denny’s sausage! This was perfectly greasy and really hit the spot. You have got to your hands on this one! What a simple yet incredible dish.

Spam and egg and rice. What have I to complain?

If you are around the Island Pacific Hotel area, definitely make a stop here for the hamburger and spam rice!

The biggest oysters I’ve ever seen and had. Cooked in a savory and sweet sauce and enveloped in a crispy crust.

Notice the size of one oyster next to a regular soup spoon.

Gigantic purple shrimp. The meat on its own was sweet and juicy.

Steamed fish in a savory sauce. Can’t tell you enough of how tender the meat texture was and how perfectly it paired with the sauce.

Bamboo mussels cooked in a black bean sauce.

Crab cooked in a steamer container with garlic sticky rice. Steamed crab, sure. Steamed crab married with sticky rice and giving birth to garlic babies? This has got to be one of the best sticky rice dishes I’ve had. Curious?

Sweet red bean soup to close.

See you tomorrow for more!
