Hong Kong Local: Cult recipes from the streets that make the city
Take a culinary tour, this book begins with elements of a traditional Hong Kong breakfast: congee (rice porridge) and yau cha kwai (oil fried bread sticks). As the day progresses, street eat recipes include Sichuan-style chāo shǒu (wontons), fresh and steaming har gow dim sum (steamed shrimp dumplings) and ngau lam mein (beef brisket noodles). There's plenty of sweets, too - including “pineapple” bread, alongside a cup of HK-style milk tea. Hong Kong is an explorer's dream and a food-lover's paradise. Hong Kong Local brings you 70 recipes for the dishes that define the city, so you can capture the magic of Hong Kong at home.
