Viet and Sushi in HK

I’m clearly behind on posting, so I’m going to try to play catch up.

On New Year’s Day, I went out for lunch with my Aunt Susanna, Uncle Robert, and my cousin Vincent.  We went for Vietnamese food.  After that, I went shopping with Vincent in Mong Kok.  We had a bunch of street food (separate post coming) and then I met up with Alfred and Lucy for sushi at Itamae sushi!  It was a fun day.  Here are a few of the photos that I took.

Vermicelli with grilled beef.

Salad rolls.

Not exactly sure what was in this, but I think it was scallop and salmon and fish roe.

This was a whole fish!  I think it was mackerel.

Fatty tuna, my favourite.  It’s also very expensive: it was probably because of these three pieces that my total bill ended up being forty bucks, CAD.  It was worth it though!

Thai Food in Sai Kung

This past weekend in Hong Kong was a blast.  I did a lot of damage on the shopping front AND I got to go to one of my favourite restaurants.  Janice and I went to Sai Kung for some Thai food at a restaurant called Sawaddee Thailand.  BEST THAI FOOD I’VE EVER HAD (I have yet to make it to Thailand).  I’ve been to this restaurant several times now; I’ve been able to visit it each time I’ve come to HK.  My favourite dish here is the pork neck.  After we ate dinner, we wandered around the shops for a bit (I bought a new hat, thank you for asking,) and then we went to Sweetheart Desserts for some fried ice cream!

Thai-style veggies.

Thai papaya salad.

 

Raw shrimp.

Thai spring rolls.

Pork neck-this is my favourite dish here.  The beef skewers are a close second (not pictured in this post).

Fried ice cream.  This was really well done, it was crispy on the outside and not greasy at all.  Vanilla ice cream on the inside.

I really enjoyed spending Saturday with Janice!  Thanks, girl!

New Year, New Adventures!

It’s been a crazy holiday (in a very good way) and I’m so backed up with photo editing, it’s not even funny.  But I had an excellent Christmas break, jam-packed with food activities, and now it’s a new year!

I’m starting off the new year in the best way possible: I’m spending almost the entire month of January in my favourite city: HONG KONG! I’m doing an internship, and it’s going great!  I’m really enjoying it, and I’m also taking the opportunity to eat all my favourite foods here!

Here are some things that I ate on my first full day in HK:

Dim sum!

More dim sum!

Strawberry desserts for tea time!

And this is just the beginning of my food adventures!  Keep checking back for updates!  I carry my camera on me at all times, and the vast majority of my photos are food-related!
