I just had Mr Chens for lunch, so I am in the mood to write about Chinese food. In a lot of ways, the food I ate in Hong Kong was basically the same as I might find here. Purely by pointing at a menu and pictures on the wall, I managed to order this delightful noodle dish one morning. It is basically just noodles with some pork and bok choy - nothing you can't get here. It was, however, dirt cheap, and very tasty.
|Nothing unusual here.|
|Possibly pork. Everything was pork.|
|I think one of these is duck. I hope it was.|
|Coconut and evaporated milk. Delicious and refreshing!|
|Turned out to be rice balls and maybe pork?|
It was not all random street foods. I also ate at Michelin starred restaurants! Tim Ho Wan was recommended by a friend who noted that it was "probably the cheapest Michelin starred establishment in the world." She recommended that I get the pork buns, among other things, and they did not disappoint. My entire bill there, which I split into two full meals, came to about $11 USD. After I got a suit made, I donned it to go to Din Tai Fung, another reasonably priced establishment with a Michelin star. A very full dinner there set me back about $20.
