Best uniquely Hong Kong dishes and scenic spots you need to try.

Welcome back to my channel! First, I would like to explain my five-month absence.During the past five months I’ve had something important to deal with. So, I couldn’t update my website.I would like to introduce something about city of Hong Kong where I’ve been over the past two weeks.Thanks for your comments and attention.

Hong Kong Food

1.Cha Siu Baau

Barbecued pork stuffed into a bun deserves its very own shout-out here. Because, when we break open a soft white steamed bun and see the glistening mauve filling of diced cha siu with extra barbecue sauce spilling out and sniff the heady perfume of wine, soy, and hints of caramel, we’re moved. North Garden calls theirs “cha siu mantou,” giving the traditional bun a northern Chinese twist.

2. Cantonese preserved sausage

Some Chinese sausages can be heavy on the salt and spices, but Cantonese laap cheung are a perfectly proportioned mix of slightly-sweet pork fat and meat. Rose water and rice wine gives them a pungent edge and soy sauce serves as a salty counterpart to the sweetness. Cook them with rice, vegetables, eggs or just about anything.

3.Yung Kee’s roast goose

Yung Kee has been around since the 1940s when it was a mere food stall near the ferry pier, and has since grown to be the authority on Hong Kong roast goose.

Today, nine out of 10 people will recommend friends visiting Hong Kong to have a meal at Yung Kee for their “siu ngoh.” The restaurant will even specially pack their goose as carry-on luggage for departing travelers. It isn’t the cheapest by a long way and some may say that the most authentic roast duck is still to be found deep in the New Territories, but its an institution not to be missed.

4.Claypot rice

For those willing to turn a blind eye to the two-star service and focus on the five-star signature dish, Kwan Kee Claypot Rice is a must-visit. With hardly an empty seat ever, Kwan Kee does rice crustily well using charcoal stoves that are near-extinct in Hong Kong food circles. Whatever toppings you choose, be sure to add some Chinese preserved sausage. All the juices and fat from the meat will drizzle into the rice, adding to its pleasant aroma and taste.

5.Egg Waffles

Egg waffles, eggettes, ‘gai daan jai’, or whatever you want to call it, this eggy snack is a quintessential part of our city’s street-food culture. Warm and fluffy on the inside and crisp on the outside, these bubble-shaped waffles are the perfect grab-and-go snack. There are plenty of street vendors that offer egg waffles, often with a wide variety of fangled creations – topped with ice cream, different colours, shapes, and flavours, some even have molten centres! Whether you prefer to try funky flavours of cheese and charcoal or are looking for the popular star-patterned variety, click below to see where to get your hands on the best egg waffles in Hong Kong.

6. Curry fishballs

Curry fishballs are probably Hong Kong’s most iconic street snack. Though they’re mostly made from flour these days and contain almost no fish meat, this has had little effect on the snack’s popularity. Springy in texture, the bite-sized spheres bob about in a strong curry sauce before they’re skewered on a bamboo stick or ladled into a takeaway bowl. Head to Fishball Gor, located near Mong Kok’s Langham Place, and try their fishballs in original or spicy flavour cooked using a secret recipe of herbs and spices. 

7.Egg tart

Like many classic Hong Kong food dishes, the origins of the egg tart are a bit murky, but it seems likely that they are yet another example of British tea time snacks – custard tarts, in this case – that were adapted to local Chinese tastes.

Since they became popular in the 1940s, two varieties of egg tarts have emerged: one with a flaky puff pasty shell and another with a sweet shortbread crust. Both are filled with a rich custard that is much more eggy and less creamy than English custard tarts or Portuguese pasteis de nata.

8.Sweet and Sour Pork

No, it isn’t just for gwailos. Sweet and sour pork, called “gu lo yuk,” is also a comfort food craved by Hong Kongers. The Cantonese original is made with vinegar, preserved plums and hawthorn candy for a nearly scarlet color and that sweet-sour tang. Nowadays, it’s mostly made with ketchup and coloring.

9.Steamed Shrimp Dumplings (Har Gow)

Har Gow is one of the most representative dim sum dishes in Hong Kong restaurants. It remains a top priority of order, though expensive. Usually there are three to four shrimp dumplings in one bamboo steamer. Each shrimp dumpling has one to two small shrimps and a little pork wrapped in a thin translucent wrapper.

When it is served, the wrapper is crystal-like and shining, attracting people to put it into their mouths. One bite is enough to swallow one dumpling. The shrimp is refreshing and best if it has a little juice inside so that it is not too dry.

10.Pineapple Bread

Pineapple Bread is a sweet bread originating in Hong Kong, very popular, and found in nearly every bakery.

The surface of the bread looks a pineapple, hence the name, but the traditional variety doesn’t actually contain pineapple. A mixture of sugar, eggs, flour, and lard form a crisp surface with soft bread underneath, and it’s best eaten when hot.

5.Lan Kwai Fong

The architecture of the temple is quite elegant and showcases vibrant tones and textures.

Located right next to the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre, faces Wan Chai waterfront. It gets its name as there is a huge  Bauhinia statue right in the center and is 20 meters high. 

Something which makes it unique is that it is made up of 206 overlapping tablets, out of which sixty are rounded and are in granite color. The body of the monument highlights the nine shimmering Chinese characters, and the aura is extraordinary.
