Eating my way through Hong Kong

13 12 2009

Ahhh, dear egg tart. How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.

Oh, hello there, reader! Sorry, you caught me gazing at this photo of a Cantonese egg tart (aka: “dan ta”). It’s hard not to lose yourself in one of these, especially if it’s the edible kind, not a photo.

Fortunately this story has a happy ending, because mere seconds after I snapped this photo, the egg tart was beginning to dissolve on my tongue. And I have Choi Fook Royal Banquet in Causeway Bay, Hong Kong to thank. It was the perfect way to cap off an all-too-short stay in one of Taipei’s nearest neighbors.In the 12/12 edition of Feast Meets West, we discussed all things related to Hong Kong — not just the food, but Taiwanese perceptions of the city, too. It’s a tightly-packed city of extraordinary variety. Below are just a couple of the images (more often food-related than not) from my last trip.
