Cantonese SeaFOOD

HELLO Hong Kong!
You know you're in HK when as soon as you step outdoors, your sweat condenses over your own pores. And when you see strange-looking creatures meant to be eaten lying around on the sidewalk in Sai Kung.

Unlike Chicago, I get to see my swimming seafood before the restaurant takes it out of the tank, cooks it, and plates it for my little taste buds to enjoy.

So, above are some fascinating pictures of ugly animals that Hong Kong people eat. I have no idea what some of them are. Now I wish I took more pictures of the cooked food. Unfortunately, it disappeared way before I whipped out the cam. :P

Tofu, bak choi, straw mushrooms & fishies in soup.

Since Asian people drink soup at the end of the meal, I got a picture of the last dish.

Warm Up

Prep yourself for a journey into the world of Michelle. In 24 hours, I will be on a plane taking me back to the world's #1 TASTY FOOD central. Don't hate. :P

Feast your eyes on the prettified, delicious food from NY as a warm-up. This is the food I love. This is the type of food to come.

Frozen Hot Chocolate from Serendipity III
Xiao Long Bao Pork + crab-filled soupy steamed buns from Joe's Shanghai (Chinatown, NY)

The end...of the beginning. :)
