For those who haven’t been to Hong Kong or know where it is, Hong Kong is an autonomous territory on the Pearl River Delta of East Asia. (totally Wikipedia that). But what I really wanted to say is, Hong Kong is the ultimate foodie heaven. I mean…just take a look at some pictures of food I had below:
Is your mouth watering yet?
Alright, I’m done torturing you with pictures of delicious, mouth-watering, food porn pictures. But if my pictures aren’t persuading enough to have you book a one-way ticket straight to Hong Kong right now…go check out @hongkongfoodie on instagram to convince you some more.
Let me know in the comments below whether you’ve been to Hong Kong before or is planning a trip there soon!
Fried tofu with Chinese vegetables (紅燒豆腐). The tofu was perfectly pan fried, but soft on the inside. It was surrounded by bean curd and Chinese vegetables. It was so juicy and savory. Definitely recommend this dish to all the vegetarians and non-vegetarians out there.
Sweet & sour ribs (京都骨). This was really crispy on the inside and the sauce is sticky. It was like a burst of flavor in your mouth. Fresh steamed fish (盲曹魚). This was really delicious, you can really taste the freshness. However, this dish is definitely not for everyone. But, if you’re Chinese and have had this before, then this probably looks awesome to you. Steamed crab with garlic, ginger, green onions, on top of noodles (清蒸水蟹伊麵底). It has really strong flavors, but I was really looking forward to pan fried noodles and crab, rather than steamed. Overall, it was still delicious, but difficult to eat. All of our food.
This past weekend, my family and I went to one of our favorite Chinese restaurant in New Jersey, call Canton Palace. The address is: 216 W Main St, Somerville, NJ 08876. We went with our family friends, since they were moving away, we wanted to have on last get together. My family and I come to this restaurant often, because their food is really delicious and affordable. The service is really nice, but the atmosphere is a little hectic.
I would definitely recommend going to this restaurant if you ever get the chance. I’m really picky when it comes to food, given that I was born in Hong Kong, I have really high expectations when it comes to Chinese food. And this place is really authentic and the flavors are great. I give this restaurant a 10/10.
