Lunch in Guangzhou at least, is very much on the fly. Typically bought from one of the numerous food stalls, you eat when you can.

Hong Kong egg snack, first bite at a time

It’s hard to know why it’s taken me such a long time to sample the Hong Kong snack. Essentially it’s an egg based cake mix that’s cooked on a waffle type griddle. Best eaten pipping hot, the snacks have cake like qualities to them, while the edges have a more crunchy texture to them. I’ve sampled both chocolate and plain flavours, the plain variety being my favourite so far.

As far as food landscape goes, this compares to other street food found in other Eastern countries such as Korea. Where Fish bread, or 봉어빵 in Korean, also follows the recipe of eggs, flour, sugar and cast-iron baking to produce a product that has cake-like qualities but with a local twist. The Hong Kong snacks reign supreme in my opinion. There is more to eat of it afterall.

Fancy a bite? It’s tent city here!

One of the charms of eating out in Korea is the variety of places you can eat. In reference to eating out, this can literally mean, eating outside in a tent.

Tent restaurants have been well documented by travel books and shows. All I can say is that they have their way of doing things. The food tastes the same, and it also has one of my favourite snacks, fish bread or 봉어빵.

This type of restaurant is closely related to street food, or food hawkers. This where their food stall is on wheels. I’ve seen this China, and Japan as well as Korea. I’ve also heard that South East Asia has this type of food stall too, so it’s not unique to Northern Asia alone.
