Island East Markets - 27Jan2013

The Island East Markets that started out in late 2012 is back for 2013 and is now a weekly affair! It is a cute market with a little bit of everything. The vendors do change but you’ll always be able to pick some fresh organic vegetables from the local farms, a bottle of wine, a cuppa, a pastry or two or a loaf of artisan bread. Alongside the food items, there are also local some local crafts and I spotted some pretty cool jewellery this week. My buy from this week’s market – Strawberries from Tsui Farm – small and juicy sweet strawberries, pretty good!

Nagahama No.1 Ramen

I haven’t had very much ramen here in Hong Kong but I recently ate a good bowl of Tonkotsu Ramen with Hakata-style thin noodles at Nagahama No.1 Ramen. I had the No.1 ramen which was the ramen with the works – two kinds of pork (I found the lean pork nicer), wood ear, spring onions, soft boiled egg and roasted nori. Other than that, you can choose, oil or no oil and the level of doneness of you noodles, I elected for hard and the noodles arrived cooked through tender but firm. The broth was rich but mellow enough not to be overwhelming and the egg although it looked a bit dried out was still pretty flavourful and decent. I’ll probably come back again for a weekday dinner.

Fook Lam Moon's Little Roast Piggy

Fook Lam Moon's roast suckling pig was one of the top yum things that I had in 2012. Perfectly evenly roasted crisp skin and sliced with a good meat, skin and fat ratio. Best little roast piggy I have eaten.
