Food Food Food!

First, let me introduce myself. I’m Kay, a full-time Bachelor of Dentistry Year II student, and one of the so-called “secret” members of the hKUDOS team. I’m also a student ambassador of the university; editor-in-chief of The Apollonian, the official journal of the Faculty of Dentistry; part-time tutor; and a regular, food-loving Malaysian girl.

So what am I doing in Hong Kong? I’m having the time of my life. Seriously. One of the best things about being here is the food (apart from the high standard of education and Hong Kong being a shopping paradise and etc. )


One thing you should know about me is that I LOVE TO EAT and Hong Kong is the perfect place to indulge. XD There’s no way you’d miss out on the phenomenal “3AM Dimsum. Yeah, I mean it. 3AM. Sometimes I think HK people are kinda crazy, albeit in a great way!

And then there’s something called the Lao Sha Pao. It’s legendary! Ask anyone. They would have heard of it. It’s a kind of steamed bun that’s filled with a sweet yolk paste that just explodes into your mouth the moment you bite into it. Oh my God! I don’t have any photos of it because, believe it or not, every time the buns arrive at the table, I can’t help but attack it immediately and before I know it, it’s gone.

Chao Tau Fu

Stinking Bean Curd

Also known as Chao Tau Fu, it’s a kind of fermented bean curd that smells like trash but tastes like heaven. It’s something that you gotta try when you’re in Hong Kong. The smell might put you off at first but it’s really good. You can get this at Mongkok. Supremely awesome.

So okay, maybe pork burgers aren’t a big deal in most places. But I gotta mention this because:

1. I’m from Malaysia where McDonald’s does not serve pork burgers. McDonald’s in Malaysia is fully halal, catering to the Muslim community in Malaysia (which is actually the majority of Malaysian citizens)

2. The pork burgers are really awesome (I know of people who actually buy these and bring those burgers home with them all the way across the South China Sea because their relatives requested for them. o_O ).

Simply put, the food here is great!  The key to adaptation is to simply enjoy everything there is. With that, I conclude my blog post for today. Hope you enjoyed reading it.
