5?: “Very thoughtful & kind…”

5? Review: Tour was excellent. Very educational. Frank had excellent knowledge of the history of the sites we visit. It was great to get info and learn something about Hong Kong. The weather was freezing & wet but this did not stop Frank taking us to the tour spots & despite the conditions we still see the amazing sights. Very thoughtful & kind person. He use his time to take us to shops to get more warm clothes for our kids who were very cold. The lunch was the best food we eat while in HK. Highly recommend, THX 🙂 (Browse private tour page)

To local Chinese people in Hong Kong, congee, which is a kind of thick soup made with rice, is not just for sick people.

It is actually a very common and popular food, especially for the cold morning in the wintertime.

Just enjoy a bowl of hot plain rice congee and one fried bread stick can make the travelers feel very warm.

If you are a big eater, you may have the “boat congee”, which has meat slice, cuttlefish, peanuts, fried pig skin, beef etc.

You may order extra fried noodle, steamed rice rolls and steamed sponge cake.

Clay pot steamed rice or baked rice for lunch

There are two types of hot rice for travelers to choose during lunch time in Hong Kong.

In the traditional dim sum restaurants, besides the normal dumplings and buns, travelers can have the steamed rice in clay pot, with chicken + mushroom, pork ribs + chicken legs, pork pie + salted fish, preserved meat etc.

The clay pot can effectively lock the flavor of food ingredients in the pot and keep the heat by trapping the water vapor.

Travelers may add some soy sauce to the clay pot rice to enhance the flavor.

Travelers may also have the localized Western baked rice with pork chop, seafood, beef etc. at the local fast food shops.

The traditional clay pot steamed rice and localized Western baked rice can give enough heat for travelers against the cold weather in the afternoon.

Hotpot for dinner

After sunset, temperature continues to drop.

That is the best time to enjoy the hotpot.

 

Travelers can get the warmth from the cassette cooker and the boiling soup.

After enjoying the cooked beef, vegetables, seafood, noodle, travelers can get enough energy for the cold night.

Enjoying hotpot can be a happy family reunion dinner at home or at restaurants.

There are mini personal hotpots at the local fast food shops for the single, lonely, poor guys, like Frank the tour guide.

Sweet dumplings for dessert

After the big hotpot, travelers can have the dumplings as dessert.

Actually the round glutinous rice dumplings with sweet peanut paste, black sesame paste or red bean paste are not the most important things.

In the wintertime, for keeping warm, ginger soup is more important than the dumplings.
