Within the last two weeks, I have been eating out mostly due to the lack of a real kitchen and I noticed a few things. First, I'm never sure what I'm eating but it tastes so good. And second, they keep the meat on the bone while they cook. Keeping the meat on the bone gives the dish more flavor and more restaurants in the States need to do this.
I went to a western restaurant because I was craving American food. I decided to order a pasta dish with marinara sauce and chicken. Usually in the States, the restaurant gives you boneless chicken but at this one they kept the chicken AND SKIN on the bone and it was amazing. I also don't understand why most restaurants take off the skin cause that's such a yummy part too!
The street food here is also some of the best food I've ever eaten. Most people in Hong Kong don't have a kitchen like the States. Many times it's just one or two hot plates, a small fridge, and no huge oven. It sucks cause now I can't bake but the street food is so cheap that you don't need a fully functioning kitchen. Many times the street food with be around 15-20 HKD, which is 1.94-2.58 USD. And they don't give you small portions either. They give you a substantial amount of food.
For the most part, everything here is made fresh and I feel like I'm in Spain again. They eat noodles and rice everyday yet everyone is skinny here. Once again, I think this is due to the fresh ingredients that they use. Obviously, I'm eating Chinese food everyday but I don't feel bloated or heavy like I do in the States after eating Chinese take out. I've ordered food that I would normally get in Chinese restaurants and the taste is just so different. I don't think I will be able to eat Chinese take out in the States ever again!
