siu yuk – roast pork

The day after my cousin’s wedding – and our final day in Hong Kong – we got together with all the rellies and had a big yum cha lunch at Dragon King in the World Trade Centre, the final in a string of many indulgent meals we’d had. If they read this, I wanted to thank my Aunty Liz and Uncle Jon who fed us so ferociously well over the weekend.

Since it’s a Friday, I’m not going to say much except this, people, this is how you do yum cha porn:

har cheong – prawns in steamed rice wrap

deep fried tofu

char siu bao – BBQ pork buns

char siu – BBQ pork

honeyed lotus root

battered calamari rings

siu mai – pork & prawn dumplings

xiao long bao – soup dumplings

ingredients from a crab, chicken & coconut soup

melon & prawn stir fry

loh bak goh – turnip cake – one of the best I’ve ever had!

soft shelled crab with crispy noodles

whole roast chicken


lo mai gai – glutinous rice with Chinese sausage and mushrooms

fried sesame pastry with honey

That’ll be all! Have a fabulous weekend!
