I try to post less food pics here, as people have complained 😉
Not really. But this one has to be: I found the perfect Dumpling places in Hong Hong, and enjoyed some great Ramen.
I love dumplings and Dim Sum, but for a vegetarian they are kind of tricky, as you never know what’s inside and if they understand the concept of ‘vegetarian’ as in no fish/no meat in the same way I do. It’s not always the same…
Three places stood out. It’s funny that those are mostly the ones that look generic, nothing special, hole-in-the-wall kitchens. You have to know they’re good, you would probably just walk past, otherwise.
- Ding Dim 1968. Small place, friendly staff, interesting new combinations. It was a perfect stop, for when you’re not even hungry, but just can’t resist…
- Wang Fu. My friend Tom brought me there to try their yummy vegetarian dumplings.
- Dumpling Yuan. Those were arguably the best friend dumplings in town, at least the vegetarian ones which I tried. I think I went there 8 or 9 times in the last 10 days…
Then there were the Ramen soups. Since Tokyo, I love a good Ramen. They were quite more expensive than in Tokyo, but yummy, and original.
I can’t name all the places where I had one, but the best options probably were the street vendors in Stanley Street, or Butao Ramen on Wellington Street.
And then, a bit off topic, but noteworthy: an honorable mention for a cute breakfast place: Café Loisl, an organic, vegan and raw food café that had this yummy chia seed pudding with granola.
Hong Kong, your choice of restaurants and bars is amazing! I could have gone on and on and on.
