My first meal in Hong Kong, at Hing Fat Restaurant (興發燒味茶餐廳) at Ashley Road in Tsim Sha Tsui. Hong Kongers live at a fast pace; the waiter seemed a bit impatient just after a short while when we were ordering. But to their credit, the food was served pretty fast as well. I guess it’s just their way of life.
We ordered a bowl of beef-soup rice-noodles, two set of rice meals (with chicken, roast pork and roast goose) and a bowl of pork blood cubes.
The meat was decent, and the rice really good. I guess they cooked the rice with chicken broth (or something else), and the rice they used had a really nice texture. Their rice-noodles were different from what we usually have in Malaysia; theirs were chewier… my sisters kinda liked it, but not for me.
It’s hard to explain how the pork blood cubes taste like… it’s basically tasteless, and it’s the gelatin like texture that matters. The first or two cubes tasted nicely for me, but it was kinda gross after finishing the whole bowl… I can imagine that it’s not something that westerners would like lol.
