[A Taste of Hong Kong]
By: LI Yanan, Nana (Sir Gordon and Lady Ivy Wu Hall)
Hong Kong is an international city which are reflected in various areas. Food is one of them. When strolling along the streets in Hong Kong, you can found various sorts of food which includes not only different kinds of traditional Chinese food, but also Asian and Western food in various styles. The most praiseworthy one is traditional Hong Kong food.
In the morning, you can take a sip of Hong Kong silky milk tea, have a bite of pineapple bread and order a bowl of instant noodles. At midnight, you can have a gathering with several friends in a Dai Pai Dong and experience the taste of old Hong Kong as depicted from movies. If you have a sweet tooth, you can also order a bowl of chilled mango soga with pomelo to relieve thirst and fatigue or ginger milk pudding to dispel cold and warm the stomach. If you are too busy, Hong Kong-style fast food restaurants which can be found everywhere are decent choices, too. Traditional Hong Kong food is not only an image from our childhood Hong Kong dramas and movies, but also in the world around us. What are you planning to eat today?
