GATHERING CUM DINNER TREAT AT FO TAN, HONG KONG.

Hong Kong, Day 4 - Dinner Treat At Fo Tan.

After a short tour at Fa Yuen street, the ladies wanted to go shopping and the men wanted to check out the prices for mobile phones. So a lady friend, hubby and I decided to go back to our apartment to take a rest and do some packing because we will be taking our flight back to Malaysia the next day.

By evening, the men came back and together we will be meeting up with the ladies at Fo Tan, in the district of Sha Tin for our dinner. Fo Tan is a funny name. Initially, I thought it means 'charcoal' in Cantonese. But I was told that from the Chinese character, it literally means 'fire beach'. It was a dinner cum gathering of relatives and friends, and the Hong Kong relatives wanted to host this dinner.
Young boys sweating out at the apartment's recreation park. We were on our way to Fo Tan. We needed to take a light bus to the MTR station.

Waiting for the light bus at the bus stop near the apartment.

Here's the light bus.

Took the MTR to Fo Tan. Waiting at the traffic light to cross the road to meet up with the ladies and especially our dinner hosts.

This was where we had our dinner. I think those seated inside, surrounded by the plastic sheets, get to enjoy the air-con. There were altogether sixteen of us, seated at a king sized table! And here's our dinner dishes.

Deep Fried Spring Chicken - very crispy skin and the meat very tender & tasty.

Chicken porridge/congee - a big bowl, tasty and well cooked.

Stir-Fried Noodle with bean sprout.

Deep Fried Soybean Cake in Batter.

Deep Fried Calamari or Squid in Batter.

Dipping sauce for Deep Fried Calamari.

Fish Porridge/Congee - a big bowl, tasty and well cooked too.

Blanched Broccoli with Stir-Fried Canned Mushrooms, etc. in gravy served with dipping sauce.

Deep Fried Pig's Intestine served with dipping sauce. I didn't taste any of the sauce.

Deep Fried Fish Balls served with dipping sauce, made from the fish called 'lean yu' or 'ling yu' in Cantonese.

Braised Chicken served with Deep Fried Bitter gourd with salted egg.
So here ended our last dinner in Hong Kong, our next day dinner will be at the airport. On behalf of our whole group, we once again give thanks to our dinner hosts.

Always be joyful. Never stop praying.

Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God's will

for you who belong to Christ Jesus.

(1 Thessalonians 5:16-18, New Living Translation-NLT)

    1. Hi Rose, I am glad to be able to experience the public transport in Hong Kong. And it was a wonderful experience.

  15. Thanks so much for sharing all your experiences on this trip. I now have a better understanding of the different food the people of Hong Kong eat. I love Chinese food and I used to cook it a lot but so many dishes from Hong Kong are very strange to me. So be it. Everyone has their own custom.

    Have a great week.
    Hugs,

    1. Hi Julia, Chinese has many dialect groups and each group has its own style of cooking. So we ended up with so many different dishes.

    1. This missing comments issue also happened to me some times. I would strongly recommend the spring chicken. I think the pig intestine is something new and need to be tried too.

  19. Lovely view- the food looks interesting, not sure I have ever eaten anything like it- maybe the noodles! (I'm not very adventurous when it comes to trying new things!)
    Have a blessed day!
