Do you like XO sauce? It's a Cantonese-style spicy seafood sauce that contains dried chopped up seafood such as scallop, dried fish, and shrimp that has been cooked with chili and other ingredients. It's an excellent side dish and is seen as a gourmet concoction. I love the stuff to death...tasty and spicy!
Since it was only the four of us, we didn't go all out and just opted for a simple dinner. Here we have some roast pork, with the skin done just right--nice and crispy:
One of my favorite dishes, pineapple sweet and sour pork! This was an excellent dish as the pieces were still crispy, the way it should be:
Here we have some greens stir fried with pickled tofu:
This dish was steamed minced pork with chopped water chestnuts and squid:
Usually I like my my roasted squab with a crispy skin, but this soya sauce squad was just as tasty:
I was feeling pretty good after dinner, except the air conditioning in the place was set to freezing. I was full but longing for dessert afterwards. We checked out some of the shops along Nathan Road to walk off dinner, in particular the Park Lane Shopper's Boulevard.
Here's another picture from the evening...gotta love all the neon signage:
What did I have for dessert? It wasn't much but it was none other than an apple pie from McDonald's. Pretty boring huh? You probably thought I was going to head over to Hui Lau Shan again! It's always been a tradition for me to have the apple pies in Hong Kong because they're deep fried, unlike the ones back in Canada. South Korea (and other countries in Asia) has them prepared this way too but they just taste better in Hong Kong! What's your favorite dessert in Hong Kong (so I can prepare for next time)?
