First up we have an iced yuanyang (it's pronounced yeen-yeung). This drink was included in the price of my afternoon tea "snack. If you've never experienced a yuanyang before, the moment you try one, either hot or cold you will be hooked. The addiction is similar to Vietnamese-style iced coffee--once you start, you can't stop:
Here we have a bowl of roast duck noodle soup. Normally, I'm not a big fan of duck back home because it's always too fatty (yeah, I know ducks are fat to begin with). However, this roasted duck was one of the best I've ever had--it wasn't too fatty and the skin was roasted perfectly:
If you're in Hong Kong, you must try the Hong Kong-style French Toast. Deep fried French toast with a peanut butter filling, topped with butter and maple syrup--talk about the fusion of things that all people love (except for those with peanut allergies--sorry!). I only had a few bites of this French toast as my Aunt and her friend were sharing it (but don't worry, this won't be the last time):
To walk off my afternoon snack, we walked around Olympian City mall. We stopped into a grocery store and I was extremely excited to see copious amounts of cheap tropical fruit, especially fragrant durian (I'm a big fan if you haven't noticed)!
There was a worker there whose job was to open and package fresh durian all day long. It was hypnotizing watching her work, especially the speed and precision of opening multiple durians. We bought a small pack to take home...what a way to finish off my afternoon "snack!" I bought half a durian for 10HKD, approximately $1.30US (one whole frozen durian costs about 30,000w/33US at Homever)!
Olympian City mall is huge as there are hundreds of stores located inside:
That's it for today, next up I'll be posting about what I ate for dinner. Man, my mouth is watering just looking at my pictures again. What's your favorite Hong Kong-style afternoon snack?
