Getting Sidetracked in Mong Kok
So I've realized that my past posts have been more of bizarre foods so why not return to some foods that more normal people unlike me would enjoy as well! Here's my recent trip to Mong Kok. I had no intention of stopping and eating. I was supposed to just stop by and drop something off but then I saw my favorite Mong Kok stand...
This noodle stand is amazing. You get to choose what kind of noodles you want for I think $10 HK dollars so a little more than $1 US and then each additional topping you chose you pay for. I chose kidneys, sausage, "sharks fin", etc. And then you get spicy and garlic sauce dumped on top. $16 bag right here. Made my day! This stand is genius. So cheap, but so good. Hits the spot overtime.
And of course after I got my cold noodles, I continued on my journey to drop something off and got distracted once again by this lady making some stuffed green peppers. Err fail! Looked too good. I had to sidetrack again.
Why yes I'd love some stuffed peppers but wait what is that stinky, horrible, lovely, beautiful smell in the air? Sticky tofu. Crap forget about dropping anything off. Hands off, napkins out-it's time to get dirty and smelly!
The skin was so crispy and good. Personally I like steamed stinky tofu more usually but this was muy bueno.
Don't forget the sauces!
Finally got my tofu so then I could finally get onto my stop right? Wrong! Then I saw squid... Damnit! Pit stop!
So glad I got this though cause the sauce they used was so so good! It's a must try! Thank you for my aunt for putting up with me and holding up the food for me. Totally got sidetracked and I ruined her dinner plans cause she ate with me.
Seriously just when we thought I could slow our visit down anymore I saws this!!! It's from Taiwan. I had it at Shilin Night Market when I was there and of course it was amazing. Damn it.... yeah you know the story... I just got in line.
Popcorn crispy chicken! So so worth it!!!!!
Why is there still food you ask? After all that impromptu eating, I got thirsty... So solution 1 would be to grab a drink but solution 2 was to grab some dessert. -_-
And of course typical, typical Hui Lau Shan just had to have some new summer specials to try out. Here's my chocolate banana smoothie.
P.S. we finally eventually did get to where we were trying to go... success.
