Hong Kong: my eyes are bigger than my stomach

The amount of food I consumed during the five days is embarrassing.   But not enough to not put the pictures online.

Bubble Tea!

Rakuen Japanese Restaurant. I was so glad we went here, even though it wasn’t Cantonese food.

Peanut tofu! (i.e. not tofu, but even more awesome. Apologies for the blurry picture; it was dark, I didn’t want to use flash, and I was in a hurry to eat it)

Sea Grapes (Kelp). I can’t say it was the most delicious thing ever (it was ok; kinda salty and not much else), but it was certainly one of the more interesting, and the bubble-y texture was pretty cool.

Every restaurant we went to, my dad was begging to order some random pig parts (tails, ears, feet)… we finally agreed to let him order these “pig knuckles” at Rakuen. He was happy, so all was well. I didn’t try them (they didn’t look good enough for me to break my pescatarianism), but my mom agreed that they were indeed very good, so maybe I missed out. But at least I had room for dessert.

Dessert (picture is of shaved ice) at The Dessert Kitchen while wandering on the night streets of Tsim Sha Tsui. It wasn’t as great as it looked, but that’s only because it was grape flavoured, and I’m not a fan. I’m tempted to go back to HK just to have more dessert here though…

Souffle latte at… McDonalds cafe?! Who knew there’d be such interesting coffee there!

We kept seeing “abalone” on the menus and finally gave it a try. Don’t know if it’s worth the price (HKD280 for one!) but the sea creature did taste good.
