Since they spoke about the sweet food of Hong Kong, it is impossible not to tell about famous waffles. These waffles are made of eggs (yes, in Hong Kong very much like eggs in desserts add!), their crazy sweet smell is felt in a few tens of meters and pass by almost impossible. It is very important to remember that the most delicious waffles are those that they prepared with you and just got out of the waffle. Personally, we love the classic egg Hong Kong waffles with green tea, but there are others – chocolate, strawberry and other. Here we accidentally stumbled upon the information that Hong Kong waffles began to sell in Moscow, but until I do not get to them to try and compare with authentic.

Fish balls (Fish Balls)
Fish balls are included in the most popular street food in Hong Kong. Despite the fact that often places where they are selling, they look not very presentable, you can safely try them straight from street trays. The fact is that in Hong Kong, all vendors of street food have licenses and they are constantly inspected, and with the slightest violations or suspicion of antisanitia instantly closed. How it is not difficult to guess, the balls themselves are made of fish, they can feed them in a soup with chicken broth or fried "on a stick". On secret data, the most delicious fish balls can be tried on Night Market Temple Street.

Milk Tea (Hong Kong Milk TEA)
Perhaps the most traditional Hong Kong drink – milk tea. The taste is quite unusual, and to evaluate it, time will need. Personally, we tasted it only with the third time, and so much that now during Holidays in Hong Kong Every day it is consumed. The Chinese always drank tea without sugar, milk, and other specific additives, but when the British came to the island of Hong Kong, they brought their traditions and "their" tea, as a result, it turned out a new drink – tea with Milk "Hong Kong" or "Hong Kong STYLE MILK TEA ».
Everyone knows that the British add a few drops of milk to tea (sometimes instead of sugar can add whiskey), but Hong Kongs creatively reworked the idea of tea with milk and generously pour a portion of thick and concentrated milk, and the tea itself is not just poured boiling water, and cook (like, For example, Masala tea in Nepal).

Pineapple Bun (Pineapple Bun)
These amazing buns, despite their name, do not contain pineapple at least in the traditional recipe. They received their name for the appearance – after all, the top of the buns looks like a pineapple peel. The bun consists of two parts: the top is similar to cookies and significantly harder her lower brother, which is a traditional Chinese bread. Sometimes between them put a piece of oil. In some restaurants, traditional pineapple buns are made with a filling that can be both pork and sweet.

Our experience or where to eat in Hong Kong
You can often hear up to Hong Kong that there is nothing there is, so the people eat exclusively in McDonalds (by the way, it is very different from our and there is a good breakfast;)) or expensive European cafes. We do not treat the number of gourmets, so the Career of Food Bloggers does not shine. While traveling, we often do not have time to eat normally, everything is simple – it’s easy to spend precious time, so we have a tight breakfast and deliciously dinner, and in the afternoon they eat "snacks". Of course, after the birth of a child, this situation has changed a bit, but only in the sense that we have a certain traditional lunch that we buy and take a removal to eat in the park. In Hong Kong, this is pretty simple – noodles soup and dim-samas are almost in any cafe, and our child will sell the motherland for pasta, soup and dumplings.
Waiting for the order in one of the local cafes
We dine in Hong Kong both in Chinese cafes and in European, and sometimes even in Turkish. If dinner caught us on the road, then it can be a fast food from street cafes.

Dinner in Hong Kong Istanbul Express
If the day was heavy and go somewhere in the evening laziness, then we go to the store or to the market and buy food with you. And here everything is pretty traditional: Fish balls, all sorts of sausages, sausages and seafood, sometimes sushi. A child with pleasure consumes yogurts, local pastries and noodles in all its kinds.

Typical street food in Hong Kong
We are well aware that this is not always the most useful food, and, probably, not quite correctly feed the child, but believe me, Hong Kong noodles and fish balls are a hundred times more useful than we offer to feed their children advertising from a TV. &# 128578;
