Postcards from another world | Hong Kong

Two simmering tureens were placed in front of me- a devil red broth glistening with Sichuan pepper corns ready to numb my tongue and the other, a white chicken stock with vegetables; a veritable yin-yang on a plate. As I slurped, albeit a little warily- I wondered how something that looked so evil could taste so divine?
Hong Kong is one of the most pedestrian friendly cities in the world, as most of what appeals to tourists is squashed into an area less than the size of the suburb of Bandra with the topography of San Francisco- fantastic to work off those holiday calories. Central, SOHO and Lang Kwai Fong (LKF) are a maze of alleyways, each with its own personality.  Food is omniscient, be it bars on Shelly Street, noodle soup on Wellington or a 10,000 square foot food hall in Causeway Bay. Sticky rice and pork wrapped in lotus leaf or tenderloin at Gaddi’s, this city is treasure house of cuisine. With over 10,000 restaurants, it’s like finding a needle in a heap of noodles.” Read more here! Culinary Walking Tour- Hong Kong
