Shopping (the other way)


Most older Chinese cities (well, Hong Kong is at least part of the cultural background) had their trades organized in streets (very much like Europe as well). So we headed to the Hong Kong street for dried ingredients from the sea…

As it is a maritime city there is plenty of seafood and especially ingredients which are dried, pickled, sliced, chopped, etc. and then added to whatever you can imagine – so there is a plethora of ingredients as well.
