the food hunter

My full time job this summer: food hunting/ writing book reviews for a project/ reading / summer school / more writing. Since I’m going off to Peking University for summer school in early July, I’ll have no more than two months left in Hong Kong. This is going to be the perfect time for me to catch up on some reading and writing. And of course, FOOD HUNTING. So here’s another report from Ashy the Food Hunter. As I’ve mentioned earlier, I was craving for some Korean food (due to my 4 months departure from Jean Vius, a Korean restaurant in Montreal) so I dragged my parents out with me to Hangsung Co in Tsim Sha Tsui on Mother’s Day. A menu with numbers marked for each dish and a little piece of paper – this is how you order in Hangsung. The rice cake and noodles are all made in the house but I’ve yet to try them (since we didn’t feel like having something heavy). I would say the food was average in total. The beef bulgogi was not too sweet and the rest of the dishes were alright. However, I would love to come back for the noodles/rice cake to give it another try!

It’s like a Korean fast food store in someway and there were plenty of Koreans in the restaurant.

The food hunter is finally back to black. It’s been awfully long that I have my long and black hair. I’ve missed you SO. MUCH.

In between post-lunch and shopping with my friend Domi, I had some time for myself to read and relax a bit. Cafe Habitu is one of my favourite spots and their Rose Latte is to die for. It wasn’t a coffee day for me so I turned to a simple bottle of pure apple juice and a caramel mousse cake. This caramel mousse was layered with coffee sponge cake and it caught my attention among all the pastries. Within the first few bites though, I was already disappointed since the mousse wasn’t smooth enough and I felt like I was eating jell-o which pretty much explained my disappointment. I guess I’ll just stick with the lemon meringage and chocolate mousse cake next time.

Besides food hunting/reading, I’ll also be working on a writing project on book reviews for the Book Club (a book sharing that I attend once a month whenever I go back to HK where I get to meet a lot of interesting people), which is kind of a challenge as I’ll have to write in Chinese. I’ve been slacking off with my Chinese writing skills so it’s really the time to start polishing it again! I’m very excited with this project as I’ll be working with my B Club fellows: a chubby  British accented guy who teaches English speeches (please don’t punch me I mean this in a good way!) and he’s  a pretty famous youtuber/blogger, a “hot” (uhhhhummmm, as he said so himself) LSE graduate who writes columns for different newspapers (aka this project’s director), a full time daddy who loves to read after he puts his son to sleep, a science teacher who likes to read about religion and has a passion for teaching and sharing his knowledge with his beloved students etc. I’ll keep you posted when the official project is set up!

This golden apple juice is like a bottle of little glittering stars compressed altogether.
