I think I finally realized that I was actually flying halfway across the world when I glanced at the plane's map and we were flying across the North Pole. A 15 hour plane ride definitely gave me a lot of time to imagine what Hong Kong would be like, but the truth is all the images in my head were nothing like the reality. I could probably write the longest post ever describing every detail of my hike in the New Territories, my day in Macau and my long walks around Hong Kong. Instead, considering the whole food blog theme I have going on here, I'm just going to list the top three food experiences I have had so far (unfortunately, one of the the meals was not my own, although it's still totally worth writing about).
These decadent tarts, served warm, are remnants of Portuguese colonization and although the Portuguese are no longer in Macau, I am certainly glad that they left these behind. Seeing as more people than not were carrying the tan bags from Koi Kei Pasteleria, the most famous purveyor of these tasty treats, I have a feeling I am not the only who likes these so much.
