That’s that for Hong Kong. Which means it’s photo time.
If you’re going to give your hiking trail a name like “the Dragon’s Back,” then that trail had better be pretty majestic.
Sometimes you don’t need anything fancy or gourmet; sometimes you just want a bunch of cheese, noodles, and tender pork.
And with that, I’ve now been to all the Disneys. Yeah, that’s right — all my friends might be getting married and starting families, but have they been to every Disney park in the world? No? Well then, I think we all know who the real winner is (what’s that? It’s them? It’s 100% them? Yeah, that sounds about right).
There’s a dim sum restaurant in Hong Kong called Tim Ho Wan that both has a Michelin star, and is delightfully affordable. So as you’d expect, it’s insanely crowded. I mean, look at that madness in the photo above.
You know you’re in the right city when you can just randomly stumble across a place that’s this delicious.
How delicious, you ask? Extremely delicious.
The menu at McDonald’s in Hong Kong is kind of boring; nothing particularly jumped out at me. But I’m way too deep into this McDonald’s around the world thing to stop now, so yeah — I got a couple of things.
One of the things Hong Kong is known for is its various roasted meats — goose in particular. I checked out a couple of goose joints that happen to have a Michelin star. Yeah, they take their goose pretty seriously here.
It’s kind of insane how much variety you can get with something as seemingly straightforward as noodles in soup. I just came from Japan, where I ate a ridiculous amount of ramen (a ridiculous amount. I wrote about nine of the bowls I ate on this blog, and there were many more bowls I ate that I didn’t bother posting about. I’m a fan of ramen, in case you couldn’t tell).
Japan was amazing, but it’s time to move on.
