Kau Kee Noodle is famous for having the best beef brisket noodles in Hong Kong. I left totally satisfied.
Stopped at Maxim's Jade Garden in HKG airport for some last chance dim sum. It's in Terminal 1 on level 8 in the departures hall.
A cruise down a Hong Kong grocer's snack aisle yielded a huge and crazy variety of potato chip flavors. A few of my picks here.
A requisite stop in Asia (or Los Angeles) is Din Tai Fung for soup dumplings and greens. This time I also had the wontons in chili oil.
While everything I had was delicious the story for me here were the pork buns. Just imagine the thinnest, flakiest sugar coated donut possible that then has a rich pork filling.
The food of the Vinh Hy Amanoi is super fresh, delicious and the menus have a nice sampling of many of Vietnam's more popular dishes. A few from my stay below.
On a layover at Ho Chi Minh Airport I stopped into the Big Bowl at the Terminal 2 food court for my last pho and iced coffee on Vietnamese soil.
Just past security in Hong Kong International's terminal 1 Pak Loh Chiu Chow is a first stop to get that last fix of dim sum before boarding.
Ventured to Kwang Jang market thinking I would just cruise through to browse but the sight and smell of all the food grabbed me.
Very nice spicy pork kimbap and spicy cold noodles in the basement level at the Shinsegae department store.
The South Korean take on street food (including snacks adopted from America) is playful and always packed with a lot flavor.
Might have been the best meal on my trip to Seoul.
Seoul, South Korea
"Last place to enjoy good sushi and good sake before you leave". While I didn't sample the sake I can say the sushi was great.
For lunch a bowl of Afuri's Yuzu Ramen made with a tanrei broth. Light and refreshing.
