Seafood in Hong Kong is wonderful (although I can’t vouch for how unpolluted it is to eat). A place called Sai Kung is one of my favourites and is only a 20-30 minute drive from home. The seafood is still alive (although this doesn’t necessarily make it fresh!) and you get to choose it from huge tanks that sit outside each restaurant.
Most of the seafood restaurants are outdoors on round tables – some overlooking the sea. Lovely. Hong Kong can get really hot and humid so you can opt for a table inside in the air conditioning if you really want to – but sitting outside is so much better!
In a usual meal we usually have crab, shrimp, steamed soy fish, scallops, another kind of seafood that I don’t know the English for (!) and vegetables either sauteed with garlic or steamed. Fruit for dessert. Yummy!
Another plus is that I can take Harry, my dog, with me, so long as I sit outside.
After dinner you can take a walk down the front and wander along the pier or check out the little sampan boats selling seafood, usually caught that day. Before dinner you could even take one of these little sampan boats for a mini fishing trip (not that catching anything is guaranteed *lol*).
I was there a while ago and took a few photos (quickly!) that I decided to make into a PhotoBoard! While I don’t get out there as often as I would like, it’s great when I find the time!
