So Im curious, how have your eating habits changed since you have moved to Hong Kong? Specifically, what is your opinion and habits concerning the local Chinese food?
Chinese food is nowhere near my favorite, however I have come to love some of it. Indian, Mexican, and Italian will forever hold the top spots, however, as I am here for only 4 months, I am experiencing as much as the traditional Chinese food as I can. Especially much dim sum, congee and yau ja gwai, cheung faan (rice noodles), sweet soups, mock meats, and so on. Recently I have had some homeade food from my girlfriend's mother, made with chinese herbs and mushrooms, various spices, recipes rooted in family tradition, and this has topped it all. If only they sold this type of food in the restaurants. Overall, my experience with Chinese food in Hong Kong has not been too amazing, however there are definately some wonderful flavors, concoctions, and customs.
So how are you making out with the local food? (emphasis on local Cantonese food, but inclusive of country wide staples such as rice, congee, noodles, boiled vegs, etc)
