Chiu Chow is a city in the Guangdong province. It’s also a well established ethnic group with their own kind of cooking and culinary style. It’s one of the strongest canton communities of Hong Kong. The current chairman of Chiu Chow Commerce Association just happened to be one of my company’s bosses. I received a page of cash coupons for this festival and I love food. That’s why I was there!!!
The festival was not as crowded on saturday. I waited a day to visit on sunday. More visitors = more things to see. And I was so right that I met Michael Lam. He’s a celebrity food writer/presenter, had been seen on TV many times. I took a few photos of him for the sick of it. He was nice enough to face at my camera even I was shooting it candidly. Haha..it makes my day even better. I praised his physical appearance while he was grabbing me a cup of tea in a tent. Holy smoke, the tea was so great. Really great..never tasted anything like it in a paper cup!
I used a few cash coupons on beef balls in soup and pan-fried rice dumplings. They were nice. They warmed me up instantly (it was windy today, I was shivering).
This festival will run two more days until 6th Dec. Go there if you haven’t. Grab some food and hang out with friends.
Yes. These are goose heads. didn’t know it can be eaten until now..
