(by Kim Hyo jin) We may not have fully realize that this year is 2019 up to now as we are busy. But, when it becomes March, we may start to realize that this is 2019. With the start of new year, people may make their yearly resolutions and write down their bucket list. Especially, it may be applied to travel. If you are that case, pay attention to the followings.
If you have not selected your first travel destination for this year, let me recommend Hong Kong to you. It is because Hong Kong is called by people around the world as the city of gourmet and is equipped with various foods and traditional Hong Kong foods. How about visiting Hong Kong to enjoy the foods? Let’s take a look at the list of famous restaurants in Hong Kong which rank first among the world top 100 travel sites.
This is a must visit in Central, which is a hub area in Hong Kong. The market is just a place where you can feel the nature of country when you visit there. Graham Market is the market which has been loved by Hong Kong residents for more than 100 years. The Hong Kong’s traditional sauces and manually made noodle are very popular as souvenirs. The soy sauce manufactured by Kowloon Soy Company which was established in 1917 is the soy sauce produced with the traditional technique. The shrimp egg noodle, egg noodle, and wonton of Kan Kee Noodles are also good as presents. It is said that famous restaurants such as Kauki or Lin Heung Teahouse or Shanghai Min use the noodles made by Kan Kee Noodles.
SoHo is a place located between Staunton Street and Elgin Street, where you can enjoy all kinds of the world foods ranging from French and Vietnamese foods to Lebanese food. Tycoon Tann is made of 1st floor which is the lounge which sells the unique Chinese style cocktail and 2rd and 3rd floors which are small but are elegant restaurants. It is recommended for you to drink the Tycoon Tann which is put in the antique style tea cup as the beverage prior to the main dish and eat the fusion food such as honey sauced grill-type Hungarian Mangalica Pork and Peking Duck along with black caviar as main dish.
Kung Lee Herbal Tea
The herbal tea is one of the essential items for Hong Kong people in their daily life. Kung Lee Herbal Tea House which opened in 1940 in Hong Kong is still loved by many local people. Its wood structure, ceramic tile and the fan take us back to the period of 1950s and 1960s. Here, the sugar cane juice is most popular. The sugarcane’s skin is peeled away by using the traditional method and the juice is extracted from the sugarcane by using the press before the extracted juice is cooled. You can even enjoy the sugarcane cake which is sweet and chewy here.
This Korean chicken brand is not only loved by Korean people but also loved by people around the world now. As the Goobne chicken is famous for grilling the chicken in oven instead of frying it in oil, it has attracted the attention of foreigners who have been not accustomed to this type of chicken food. If you want to enjoy Korean chicken which you have not usually enjoyed in Hong Kong, you have to visit Goobne Chicken. Korea’s No. 1 oven grilled chicken brand Goobne Chicken has the shops in Central, Tseung Kwan O, and Causeway Bay. There, you can enjoy the crunchy and sweet Goobne Honey Curry Basasak Chicken, spicy Basasak Chicken, and sweet and salty Soy Garlic Chicken. In addition, there are many other menus such as egg rolls, cheese tteokbokki (stir-friend rice cake), skewered chicken, steel plate cheese, kimchi bokkeumbap (fried rice), steel plate cheese bulgogi bokkeumbap and other Korean dishes. So, Goobne Chicken shops are recognized one of the most famous restaurants for local people. (photo by: Goobne Chicken, website of Hong Kong Tourism Board)
