  1. No cruelty intended. I was just answering the questions I was asked! Didn't realise their availability was so limited.

    Dinner 2019

    黄尾 鱼 (huáng wěi yú) - yellowtail fish, deep fried and served with couscous and 夜香花 (yè xiāng huā) - Tonkin jasmine, stir fried wih garlic and chilli.
  4. @Anna N @ElsieD Picked up both sorts of egg tarts this morning. Top: Macao style; Bottom: Hong Kong style. The Macao ones are closer to the Portuguese tarts (Pastéis de Nata). Also, they use a flaky puff pastry shell whereas the HK syle use a shortcrust pastry. Maco Egg Tart Hong Kong Egg Tart Guess what I'll be snacking on this afternoon.

    Thai green seafood curry. Seabass and wild shrimp.
  10. They are very similar, but not the same. I can get both, although I prefer the HK type. I see them in a similar way to thin and thick crust pizza! HK is thinner and Portuguese thicker. Also, I'm told that the HK type use whole eggs, whereas the Portuguese use egg yolk only and are sweeter to my mind. Also the tops of Portuguese are usually slightly brûléed, whereas HK are never so.
  11. Bought some Hong Kong style egg tarts. 香港蛋撻.
  12. It's Mid-Autumn Festival (Mooncake day) today. Again. Here is a little video that is going viral on WeChat, the main Chinese social media. (It does contain a mooncake so is not as off-topic as might initially appear!)

    Lunch 2019

    No. It's called cos in the UK, too. And in Greece where the word originated. In fact, Romaine is more common in the USA than cos. Also. sucrine isn't synonymous with romaine/cos. Although closeley related, they are different cultivars.

    Dinner 2019

    I've gone and went all Sino-Italian. For some reason, I haven't had much of an appetite the last few days - I blame the weather - so I wanted something light. A Caprese salad starter seemed a good idea. Then white shell clam with linguine. The clams were cooked with garlic, shallots, lemon zest, chilli and Shaoxing wine.
