Surely street food should only be consumed with a feisty and daring heart especially in the compact Hong Kong with people, buildings, traffic, dust and particles existing together in a very crowded place. I was happy to try out the famous stinky Tofu, made popular and known to me through those TVB dramas in the 1980s and my take on this is that if you can take durian and fermented tofu used mostly in Chinese cooking, this notoriously named 'drain water tofu' is nothing! I liked mine plain while I poked around and saw others dowsed theirs with chilli paste. My absolute favorite would be the pig's intestine, deep fried on the skewer upon your order and its taste was so good with the crispiness and crunchiness on the outside conjured up with the soft juicy inside. The mixture of beef offal and curried fishball were amongst the best sellers and costs around HK$30 for the smaller tub. I find it very funny to see well dressed and fashion conscious HK people slurping and munching on these delicacies by the street, ignoring all etiquette of the fork and spoon with table manners.
Another must go and try are those small local restaurants on every street. I absolutely love the pastries and buns when they are served hot and fresh and with a cup of hot milked tea, it made my day. They are surely in my list to make this year for my blog updates!
