Hot and Sour

Arrived in Hong Kong mid-afternoon and, after a short break, went wandering for the first meal of the holiday. After walking up and down streets, scoping out menus, and (typical tourist) looking for bilingual menus or ones with pictures, stopped at a place called Greenland Taiwanese Cuisine.

Looks like your typical roadside stop in HK, brightly-lit, offering a big menu with lots of pictures. Picked a few things but had the Hot and Sour Soup with dumplings as a main course.

Have had Hot and Sour soup before, but those were of the takeout variety, their soup was rich, delicious, and (as the name says) hot and sour. The dumplings were full of shrimp and the soup was just what was desired.

Along with the soup, ordered fried oysters and pan-fried dumplings – all of it contributing to a warm welcome to the big city.
