A smorgasbord of culinary delights
5 October 09
Really, we didn’t do anything too out-of-the ordinary. We dropped the kids off at school (there’s a reason to homeschool if you ever needed one!), headed in to pick up Renee’s ID card so she can finally use the library system, and then started on a hunt for the elusive meal ingredients essential to a happy Harvey home.
After the grueling climb up all those stairs to Keegan’s school, I was famished. Thankfully, the food options here are great!
Just kidding. After I had earlier gamely tasted a mooncake and discovered it tasted like bone marrow, I wasn’t feeling quite so adventurous. Maybe something more European?
However, I have committed myself to only buying Asian cuisine when we eat out so I can best experience the full delights of HK, and so I chose a Japanese barbecued pork meal served on rice. (I did pass up on the skewer of duck’s tongue — perhaps one day I’ll feel more game — get it, “game”? LOL. Sigh.) I sat down to wait while the meal was being made, but seriously, the cook must have completed the meal in one minute, and I only had to haul my weary body up again to get the bowls. It was true fast food.
While Renee was waiting for her meal to be prepared (they mustn’t have used a microwave oven like my chef did), I sat with Tirzah and tucked into the meal. It was very good, and now I’m eager to try more barbecued meat options.
Later, after wandering downstairs (which means cramming into a tiny lift with a dozen other people), we found a Lego exhibit of more food.
