The Forgotten Pre-Dim Sum Warm Up Breakfast

The previous Hong Kong food update was about dinner, and prior to that it was dim sum. I forgot to post about a "mini" breakfast that I had right before heading to Tsim Sha Tsui for dim sum. My aunt and I quickly popped into one of her favorite cafes for a light snack.

This time around I had a hot "yeen yeung" and an order of Hong Kong-style French toast (I scraped away most of the butter--see, I do advocate healthy eating). I also ate half of my aunt's buttered toast. This is the perfect pre-dim sum breakfast. Since I basically consumed a whole bunch of carbs (and some protein from the French Toast) it only lasted the subway ride anyways. Once we traveled from Olympic station to Tsim Sha Tsui, I was hungry again. So don't worry, I was well taken care of. ;)

I fondly remember, upon first arriving at HK abck when I worked there, complaining about the small portions of food those Hongers ate. Then I realized they had about 8 meals a day.

Leo: haha, I haven't heard or used the term "Hongers" since my last visit to Ricemond. Yes, it is very true that eating 10 times a day is normal here!

anonymous: thanks for reading the blog and I'm glad you're enjoying the posts. When you think of it, we are pretty lucky to be working and living in Seoul. :)
