Hong Kong: First Meal!
Lunch in Hong Kong
My first glimpse of Hong Kong was not at all like what I remember. It's more residential than the "Central" business district which has clean sidewalk platforms and skyscrapers blasting with air conditioning.
We came across a small open-air restaurant serving pork buns out front. We decided this would be our first meal of the trip.
The food comes and I know it’s not going to be a disappointment. Steamed pork buns, fried dumplings, vegetable with oyster sauce, and dumpling soup. The soup had noodles, clear broth, and cooked lettuce. Cooked lettuce was unusual to me, but tasty!
After dabbling in soupy, fried, and saucy things, I needed some serious clean up. Especially with my chopstick skills (or lack thereof). Thankfully, there’s a roll of toilet paper on the table for us! All is well again!
