Lunch in Hong Kong

July 15, 2011

The last stop on our trip to Asia was Hong Kong. I can honestly say that we ended this trip on the right note because the food scene in Hong Kong is fabulous.

I tried so many new foods in Hong Kong, from pasta dishes for breakfast to sweet street foods. Every day was an exotic adventure for my taste buds!

Among the numerous dishes I savored, the one that stood out the most to me was a Taiwanese beef noodle bowl. I can honestly say that this is the best noodle dish I’ve ever had in my life… and, believe me, I’ve had a lot of noodle dishes.

As we entered a cozy little restaurant in the 19th floor of a fancy shopping mall, I didn’t really expect much out of Taiwanese food. After all, I had never tried it. So I went safe and ordered a typical Taiwanese beef noodle bowl along with some spring rolls.

As sipped my first spoonful of the red-orange broth, I was shocked. It was so incredibly delicious! There was so much flavor in the broth. The main star was, of course, the beef but the carrots, potatoes and other unknown veggies highlighted the taste.

Being that carbohydrates are my favorite food group, I couldn’t wait to try the noodles. Again, I was left in shock! The noodles absorbed all the juices and flavor from the soup, leaving my in a state of foodie bliss…

I would go back to Hong Kong in a heartbeat just to have one more bowl (or 8 more bowls) of that delicious soup…
