Live Tweeting During Bizarre Foods: Hong Kong
I want to see me eat Gold Coin sandwiches at Manor restaurant, dine on the world’s best seafood at Sai Kung and learn what it’s like to go airborne in one of the world’s best martial arts studios, the Hit Hut. That, and the fact that one of the world’s greatest eating cities is yours for the watching makes this must see TV.
Have you heard of kau kee? It’s a simple little place on the hill, they have been open for decades and basically only serve one thing: beef brisket and noodles swimming in simple beef broth. It’s the best thing I ate all week in Hong Kong…well except for the coins, and the soy sauce noodles, and Maks shrimp dumplings and all the crew meals at the little pork bbq joints and dumpling shops around town. This place is a must for eaters looking to expand their culinary horizons and a trip to HK will increase your street cred with your food buddies by a factor of 10. Rest assured that you will never find a dining companion as beautiful, poised and food-smart as Amy Ma. I love my work.
AND JOIN ME FOR A LIVE TWEET DURING THE SHOW! I’ll be sharing my thoughts, comments and responding to your questions via Twitter throughout the premiere of Bizarre Foods: Hong Kong, Tuesday, 3/15 @ 9pm E. Make sure you’re following me (@AndrewZimmern) and my sidekick Molly (@in2BizarreFoods). Use the hashtag #BizarreFoods to follow the conversation. It should be a great time.
Now next week is the Hungary show, let me assure you the visit to the Roma, the gypsy family, was like a bad acid trip, all laid behind a sound track of electric psycha-gypsy-billy music that has to be seen to be believed. That, and the incredible facial hair on display, the meltingly delicious Mangalitsa pork and the sights and smells of shabat in the Jewish Quarter. I love this show and you will to. I will send you a nice Hungarian recipe later in the week.
