Hello Hong Kong! My Favorite Foods

During one particularly tedious day at work, a message popped up on my phone saying “Hong Kong, this weekend, yes or no?”   After glancing at the teetering stack of papers on my desk, my first impulse was to say no.  Just then, my office phone rang, and in the process of picking it up, I (accidentally) knocked the entire stack onto the floor.  Right then and there, I took that to be a sign from the universe, and messaged back “YES!”  So that’s how this spontaneous trip to Hong Kong came to be.

It’s not really in my personality to take spur of the moment trips. During my previous trips, I would always make meticulous plans about what to do.  This time, I just went with the flow, and was pleasantly surprised at how most of the trip unfolded.  For this trip, I’ll do a quick series of posts on my favorite eats, and some travel tips I’ve picked up along the way, and what to do if you don’t feel like shopping.

I realized that whenever I go to Hong Kong, I tend to eat a lot of the same things, because I love them, and because they don’t taste the same anywhere else. I’ve included my top 4 food items, and number 5 as a bonus tip.

Number 1: Hong Kong Style Milk Tea
