Hong Kong (and the rest of Asia) was the first time we encountered food that we were afraid to eat. All the food we saw in Europe looked incredible and tasted familiar. In Hong Kong, we started to see things on the menu that were completely unknown or just unappetizing to us. Regardless, we found plenty of delicious food (since we tended to stick to things we recognized). You can't go wrong with a plate of rice and stir fry.
We were told by some of our followers that we must try dim sum in Hong Kong. On our last day, we walked around for an hour looking for a quick place to try some dim sum, and of course right when you need something you can't find it. We ended up having dim sum at the airport before taking off for Thailand. Dim sum is a small Chinese dish that is often served in a small steamer basket and is especially popular in Hong Kong. The one we tried was similar to dumplings-- a round dough ball stuffed with various meats and fillings. It has a distinct texture and feels gooey when you bite into it... the kind of gooey that sticks to the roof of your mouth when you bite it. Ours was really tasty!
Here's a little collection of some of our eats in Hong Kong.
Frozen yogurt/smoothie combo. And a popular street food called "eggettes" which were incredibly yummy and only $1!
