Steaming Steam

On the second night in Hong Kong, Nee was craving for the steamboat out of hunger, so we flipped through our food bible and found this place at Wan Chai (湾仔). There's no English signboard, but the pronunciation of the name in Cantonese is Jau Gwat Hei (有骨气). The steamboat here is different from others for its dim sum items. Imagine putting in siew mai (烧米) into the steaming soup is interesting enough.

There were many choices of soup, but we were not adventurous enough to try other things than the standard spinal-chord bone soup. There were also chopped sweet corn segments in the soup. We didn't know that and ordered an extra portion of sweet corn. However, we wallop up almost all of the sweet corn segments!

Three typical Kuchingites couldn't live without meat balls in steamboat, so our first item on the bill was this plate of pork and beef balls.

Some people say that mushrooms are vegetarians' meat. We couldn't agree more as they really tasted like meat.

These were the most interesting items we put into the steamboat. They are dim sum items but cooked in the steaming pot.

There were also two types of sliced fish meat. One type was from eel and I forgot what type of fish the other was from.

I know a lot of people are going to tell me animal fat is bad for health, but I don't wanna know!

After we had finished all the food on our table, we started to peep onto tables of others to see if we have missed out the goodies. However, we were too full for anything else!

This reminds me of my visit to Hong Kong. It was an indulgence of food and culture. Thanks for the photos.

Hi MmeHaydee, Hong Kong is indeed the place for food and cultural experience of the Chinese. Thanks for dropping by. :)
