Eating in Kuala Lumpur, Stuttgart ,Hong Kong, Copenhagen

This is a very overdue post when I finished my long exhaustive trip in May but there's just too many good food memories not to post so here it is. After hours scouring through hundreds, if not thousands of holiday photos, I have picked out some to share. Be warned that this post is picture heavy!!

First stop was Kuala Lumpur to eat like there's no tomorrow visit family and friends.Like many other Asian cities, you can't walk around Kuala Lumpur without succumbing to food temptations. My favourite haunts are usually in the old style restaurants where you get genuinely good food and not just fancy decor and menus. A good friend took me to Petaling Street aka Chinatown for dinner and it was one of the best food I have eaten during my stay in Kuala Lumpur.

                                 Claypot Loh Shee Fun (rice noodles shaped like mouse tails)

'Siu Yok' (Roasted Pork)Noodles. In true Malaysian style, all noodles are to be accompanied by fresh bird's eye chillies and sambal belacan. Heavenly combination!

My all time favorite Nasi Lemak

Nasi Padang feast

I don't know how I survived eating so much gorgeous food in my two weeks stay in Kuala Lumpur but I did, which is amazing. These photos represents only a fraction of what I ate. The rest of the time I am too engrossed in eating that I forgot to take photos until it's all gone.

A healthy breakfast of rolled oats with abundance of tropical fruits. Eating a rainbow of goodness - dragonfruit, mangoes,goji berries and almonds.
Sotong Kangkong - Cuttlefish salad with water convolvulus and crushed peanuts.

Yong Tauhu -stuffed vegetables with fish mince on broth

These are the frogs in the fish tank before they were fished out to be cooked.

Hong Kong

I've lost track of how many trips that I have made to Hong Kong and the food has always been the most rewarding part and I keep going back for the food, and the shopping. One of the must try dish in Hong Kong is Wonton Noodles. It's quintessentially Hong Kong cuisine and my favourite is from Tsim Tsai Kee in Wan Chai. Each element: broth, noodles and wontons are just perfect. They have been awarded one Michelin star for their effort.

Ginger Milk Pudding so ridiculously soft you'd think that you're eating clouds.

Charcoal grilled pork neck cheese noodles -quirky and tasty

Dinner @Yung Kee Restaurant. This is one of the most esteemed food establishment in Hong Kong and it's well-knowned for their roasted goose. It was my sis' shout and we got greedy and ordered a whole goose for 4.

Street food galore...

Huge mango dessert ordered by sis to share

Pig trotters cooked with preserved plums in Wanchai

 My all time favourite tea time food Hong Kong - freshly baked Bolo buns from Kam Wah in Mongkok 

I can't remember what these were but I think they were pig offals that my sis ate. I ate some too. I know you shouldn't really eat anything that you don't know but that's part of the fun when you travel in Asia.
After I left Hong Kong, I stayed a few days in Germany with my husband's family and then traveled to Copenhagen for 3 days and had the most fantastic time there visiting an old friend and just sucking in all the beauty of this city. The buildings, designs and people. I would love to come back soon during summer time. 

I started this post with the intention of fitting all my food photos but I realise it's getting a bit too long. I will write another post of my foodie experience in New York and San Francisco.
