Hong Kong: Hawker food and dim sum 點心 in Hong Kong
When in Hong Kong, make sure to try the hawker food and dim sum 點心! Near our hotel in Mongkok, there was this really attractive hawker stall right beside Langham Place which sold steamed and fried dim sum.
You basically bought it per stick which included siomai, beef balls, fish balls, fried tofu, sausages wrapped in bacon, and even fried pig intestine. It was served to you in a styrofoam container and you can choose which sauce to put. The price per stick was between HK$7 to 12. They had this really delicious dark brown shrimp sauce which we liked a lot. Which is why we had this for a midnight snack for two consecutive nights!
Another midnight snack we had was noodle toppings. But I wasn't really to delighted with it.
During our last day, my SSEAYP friend from Singapore, Joy Lim, took us for some dim sum in the Central area. She even had to call her friends to make sure that we had some of the best dim sum in town! (I'll post the address when I get back to Manila)
We had among others, siumai 燒賣 (Chinese dumplings), har gow 蝦餃 (shrimp dumplings), char siu bau 叉燒包 (barbecue pork buns), char siu sou 叉燒酥 (baked pork buns), cheong fun 豬腸粉 (steamed rice roll), paigu 排骨 (pork spareribs), sin jyut gyun 鮮竹捲 (tofu skin roll) and lo mai gai 糯米雞 (glutinous rice chicken).
