Hi guys! Another week down in HK. Nine weeks in and time is still flying here. Some recent eats…
Check out the one-way escalator in the background (it goes down from 6-10 a.m. and then up for the rest of the day). That’s how people commute between Central and Mid Levels.
Bibimbap bowls from Takorea in Central, our go-to takeaway here. So glad I found this place for a healthier option. I always get the crispy eggplant with brown rice, topped with a fried egg to up the protein.
Ding Dim 1968 in Central. Best dumplings we’ve had so far. Clockwise: Shrimp + veg, veg and shrimp straight-up.
BA Sushi in Wan Chai…I’ve been back here twice since a friend who lives here introduced it to me. Super fresh and reasonably priced too.
Crab Noodle in LKF. Insane. A must if you’re visiting. Crab meat wonton noodle soup w fried beancurd sheet and buckwheat noodles.
Prawn noodles with fried beancurd sheet on the bottom, steam broc in the tastiest crab broth on the top.
Lunch at home: Tuna salad with brown rice, avo and homemade balsamic dressing.
Date night at Linguini Fini, Central. His: ‘On Top of Spaghetti’ – meatball covered with cheese – had to steal a few bites.
Hers: Eggplant parm, soon demolished.
Saturday night dessert at Oddies, which has just opened in Central. Can’t go past their low fat 66% dark choc gelato soft serve. So satisfying – like a never-ending piece of dark choc <3
New find from City Super. Will be getting this again. The yoghurt is unsweetened but not too tart and the fruit compote isn’t overly sweetened.
Dressed up – topped the yoghurt with rolled oats and Meridian 100% Crunchy Peanut Butter. Best brekkie.
My new coffee: Iced with milk foam at Gong Cha. I ‘happen’ to walk past this place whenever I’m in Central or Taikoo.
Love that Gong Cha lets you choose your sugar level – I got the ‘no sugar’ option (although I’m sure that sweet ‘n’ salty milk foam isn’t sugar free…a bit too good to be true!)
Easy home dinner: Brown rice, canned wild salmon, cabbage salad with my new favourite dressing (will share ‘recipe’ with you guys soon 🙂 )
Fried free range eggs with avo on toasted Food for Life Rice + Almond bread from Just Green – best gf bread I’ve had so far here.
And that’s another HK WIAW. To those of you in Sydney, I hope you are safe through the storm. Thinking of home today.
