Two days ago was the Chinese Moon Festival. Coincidently I’ve been animating a moon (see pic) for the past few days on a project. We dined at Mission 261 for the first time there with dad (mom is still at Tibet).
Shark Fin Soup $58 Haha when I was eating this I’ve been thinking of Vero’s Anti-Shark Fin soup project (see? it works!). I never have it enough to tell if this is good or not, but it taste good and LOTS of Shark Fins.
Deep-Fried Prawn Balls with Salted Duck Egg Yolk 金沙脆皮蝦球 $23.85 This is simply one of the most yummy things I’ve ever had! So “golden sand” is a fancy term for the texture you feel in your mouth with the crusted Salted duck egg york. The Prawn balls are crisp and lots of subtle flavor that I can’t tell what other stuffs was used.
Free moon cake, Five Mixed Seeds and Bean Paste. I don’t like this flavor at all ever since childhood. It has too much stuffs and odd sweet taste. My favorite kind is the traditional simple White Lotus Seed Paste with Salted Duck Egg Yolk (which we have a box at home)
BTW I read that paper lanterns is back in favor in HK. I remember when I was little, paper lanterns were gradually replaced by cheap ugly plastic ones that makes fancy electronic lights. Traditional paper lanterns were deemed as out-of-fashioned and unsafe (it was scary to carry it around with a candle burnng inside, especially when wind hit). The plastic ones are often shaped in the form of hit cartoon characters, hence more attractive to children. But now there’s a revival of traditional paper lanterns. Now there’s better designs. People bought them mostly for home decorations.
