Just because you can’t travel to Hong Kong, doesn’t mean you can’t have a Hong Kong experience right here in Sydney.
Start with a cup of tea, 35-year old Pu Erh tea at Quali-Tea in the Strand Arcade. Tony and Chevy Kwok will let you smell and sample, and will show you how to enjoy teat the traditional Hong Kong way. And if you like Jasmine tea, try one of the flower teas which blossom as they brew.
At lunchtime, head over to XOPP in Darling Square. This descendant of the famous Golden Century restaurant in Chinatown is continuing the tradition of the finest live seafood, but cooked with both classic and modern techniques.
There are dishes would be well at home in any Hong Kong restaurant – salt and pepper lobster and their famous XO pipis where the restaurant gets its name. Then are some new tweaks on old favourites – fried mantau bread with prawns and XO sauce, and cauliflower cooked in the typhoon shelter style.
And you can work off your lunch down at the Blackwattle Bay Dragon Boat Club.
We’re going to be sharing more Hong Kong in Sydney adventures over the next couple of months.
