While in Hong Kong recently for four days, I spent most of my time visiting with friends. Interestingly, I didn’t revisit many of the restaurants from my last trip there, which was a watershed trip in terms of food quality. Instead, I tried some new places. First stop was Jin Luo Bao, a Korean restaurant in Causeway Bay located in the building behind the Sogo department store.
Assorted kim chi, pickled vegetables. Did you know there is a shortage of Napa cabbage in Korean right now, driving the prices higher than the price of meat?
A stir fried dish with a moderately spicy sauce. The tubes are made of rice, basically like mochi. Very tasty and fun to eat.
Bi bim bap – rice, meat, and garnishings in a super heated stone bowl. Add chili sauce and stir as the heat from the bowl finishes cooking the meat.
I always enjoy Korean food and had a fun time catching up with my university friend Tehlin, who graciously (and unnecessarily) paid for lunch.
More soon. For a complete listing of my Hong Kong recommendations, visit my Google Map.
