I've traveled to several countries and I'm reluctant to say that Hong Kong is the only one lets me down.Unquestionably,Hong Kong is the top gourmet capital in Asia.Therefore,I have to say I had wonderful meals when I was there,but the reason why I don't like the city is the crowd.I don't like to stay in a crowded place and there's an insanely number of people dwelled in Hong Kong!
Also,there's an interesting thing I found in Hong Kong:the metro escalators.The speed of the escalator is super fast!I can barely imagine how the elder survive in that fast-speed city.When I took the escalator,I had to be like"ok,one,two,three and go!"I had to be so careful and put my full attention upon stepping in and out of the escalator.
Due to my loner personality,I feel like having a Hong Kong style meal in Taipei is a better option for me.I watched a TV show,introducing a Hong Kong style restaurant the other day.The decoration and the dishes seemed so nice,so I invited my friend if she's interested.
The restaurant is located on the top of a hotel,called "Le Palais."I'm impressed by the decoration,which is very classic and elegant.Since Christmas is around the corner,there're some christmas ornaments as well as antiques.The entrance of the hotel is tiny,and it's not easy to be noticed,but delicate!
We had various dim sums and enjoyed them a lot!There're "Pan-Fried Turnip Cake with Preserved Meat,""Honey Glazed Barbecued Pork,""Steamed Chicken Feet with X.O. Sauce,""Steamed Prawn Dumplings" and "Steamed Pork Dumplings with Fish Roe."I'm sure that if your are a frequent costumer to a Kong Kong style restaurant,you would feel quite familiar with these dishes.I love these kinds of little snakes a lot,because each of them is not big,so you can taste different ones!
