Day 2 Sep 11, 2016
Hong Kongers has unique hobbit which is spending their morning in the restaurant to have breakfast, tea and lunch together, and sit as long as they can.
In western people usually call it brunch, but in here is a lot different and not much in common. We had our morning tea for 2 hours. Grandma order dim sum for us. She remember last time she came to Taiwan we love the Tripe with Chili and Chicken Feet w/ Black Been Sauce and Chili. When these two dishes come to the table, I notice the color was darker than I used to know and the taste of those two were way better then I ever had.
We order two types of tea, one is Pu Erh (普洱) and one is Tie Guan Yin (鐵觀音). Both of the tea are common in Hong Kong, Taiwan and China. In Taiwan, you can easy get the taste of Tie Guan Yin (鐵觀音) in any tea shop, so I had lots of Pu Erh (普洱) tea while I was in Hong Kong.
Later that night, I found a rare kind of tea in Wellcome (惠康) super market name is Shou Mei (壽眉) which I had lucky to had long time ago in Taiwan, and it become one of my must buy bulk list, but it’s hard to find in Taiwan. Cause most of the Taiwanese never heard of Shou Mei (壽眉). So when I saw buy 2 get 1 FREE in Wellcome (惠康), I told my wife we must buy this!
Photos below were the dishes we order, from left to right the first one is Cloy Pot Rice with Spareribs and Chicken Feet, Minced Pork Congee with Preserved Egg , Beef Sui Mai, Pork Sui Mai, Cloy Pot Rice with Chicken and Salty-fish, Chicken Feet w/ Black Been Sauce and Chili, Tripe with Chili, Pan-Fried Turnip Cake.
Too bad we don’t have Fried Bread Stick (油炸鬼) in our Congee, otherwise it will be amazing.
