Hong Kong: Good Eats

16 May

Since we were not fans of Beijing style northern Chinese fare, we were happy to land in Hong Kong and immediately find cheap delicious food everywhere.

Dim Sum is everywhere in Hong Kong.

Red-dyed noodle wrapped around chinese donut with shrimp inside. We’ve never had this before and it was fantastic.

Our friend Joe has worked in Hong Kong for the past year. He took us to a HK$12 noodle soup place and we cleaned up.

Gong Cha, one of the best boba places that we’ve been to. Neck-in-neck with Half and Half in LA.

Tin Hau: a Michelin-star rated dim sum restaurant in a train station. Cheapest Michelin-starred place in the world!

Our picks at Tin Hau. The fare is basically the same, but with a twist in either flavor or presentation.

Hung’s Delicacies: Another cheap Michelin-starred restaurant in Hong Kong. They are famous for their sliced goose. The food was tasty and very homestyle.

More street food in HK.

Family-owned porridge place near Tin Hau station. It was delicious and definitely the kind of restaurant that we like supporting.

Our host parents for our stay in Hong Kong, Mr. and Mrs. Lui. They are the parents of one of Jeannie’s best friends and they made our stay wonderful.

      It’s in hong kong station, directly above the airport express train, not in the IFC mall. It’s the only restaurant in the train station that has a 20-minute wait.

    You two are making me regret my decision not to study abroad in HK for a semester! Looks like your tummys were happy. Always happy to hear it. Btw that pink noodle dish looks awesome!
