Hong Kong Day 7

It’s been a week since my holiday started and the good food just keeps on coming. We headed to Macau today, an island about an hour’s ferry ride away from Hong Kong, and Macau is pretty much best known in the Chinese community for its casinos but also the Koi Kei Bakery, famous all around China and Hong Kong for their little biscuits, sweet treats and pastries. I bought my friends some little treats from there, they’ll be getting them soon. The stores are full of free samples of their product and it is a skill to go into each of their 5 stores (in the same line of shops!) and get full from eating all of their biscuits. One of the highlights was watching just how fresh their product is; I managed to take photos of the woman making fresh Phoenix Rolls with Pork Floss and Seaweed. A batter is pressed into an iron and then once cooked, the floss and seaweed are added side by side and the whole thing is folded up and allowed to cool. It’s quite something to watch and I’m glad I caught it in these photos.  
For dinner we returned from Macau to Tsim Sha Tsui and I ate Korean food again and may have struggled to eat it after burning my mouth for a while on the spicy broth. Afterwards we had dessert of Crushed Ice; it’s a shame that you don’t really see this that much in the UK, I think that especially during the summer, it would be very popular. The two flavours we shared between us were Taro and Red Bean and Mixed Jelly Mango Yakult. It was incredibly refreshing and there was great contrast of soft jelly, soft mango, sweet syrup, crunchy ice and melted ice. When will someone make this available all around the UK?!
