Hong Kong: The Feast

After a long afternoon working in my hotel room, I ventured to the Metropolis mall food court for a simple but refreshing lunch. I don't know the name of the restaurant I visited---the signage was in Chinese.

In the South, we just paint a picture of a pig on the side of the building. Chinese BBQers are much more direct in their display.

I went for a mainly vegetarian meal of eggplant with a little pork; the dish also came with a cup of broth. The eggplant was tender with a rich sauce. It was all very filling and enjoyable.

Notice that this meal didn't come with rice. Rice was often not served at Hong Kong, which surprised me a little. In the U. S., rice is served reflexively at Chinese restaurants. One more cultural stereotype smashed...
