Winnie Eats: Family Food

So currently I am in HK and high on my list are catching up with family, friends, shopping for my favourite Asian beauty products and of course - eating as much as I can! So it seemed apt that I should finally get round to posting this food-round-up post of some food I had while my family from Hong Kong were visiting!
Family BBQ - Chinese style. We all have individual skewers and in charge of our own selection of meats. It's definitely a fun social affair where we often criticise each other's burnt food!
Fish Balls on the BBQ - these are cuttle fish, lobster and beef flavoured, oh and a chicken wing in the background!
Sweet potatoes on the BBQ (Seriously, the most delicious way to eat sweet potato.
Yummy coconut tarts which are super easy to make and I was lucky enough to come home on some days to these freshly baked treats! Oh how I miss my family visiting (and their good company of course!).
Making Palmiers at home - we cheated by using ready made puff pastry!
Some of my favourite treats from HK - mostly courtesy of the food section at muji. They do the best snacks. I say this all the time but I really wish that the food selection would come to the UK.

Lastly another one of my favourite Chinese desserts and always makes me feel pretty nostalgic. This is sweet almond soup which is made from mainly almonds, rice and rock sugar. Such a treat! Hope this post didn't make you guys feel too hungry. It won't be long until I tempt you guys again with some more delicious food from my stay in HK. Stay tuned...


  1. Yeah! Muji snacks I spot here c:
    I think you are having a great
    time in HK! Xx

  2. Oh man, I want it. I want it all! And as far as Muji concerned, I really hope they would just actually open up a shop in Holland. That would be amazing. Anyway, I'm looking forward to anything HK related. :D Have fun!!

  3. Mm, everything looks so tasty! x

  4. Oh the barbecues look lovely!!

  5. That is such a good idea! The way it usually happens with our ones is that one unlucky person gets in charge of all the meat and just ends up standing next to the grill for ages. This is a great way to make it more fair - and criticise the burning of course!

  8. I love the idea of a family BBQ but I know mine would end up cremated or not cooked through! Will definitely have to try doing sweet potatoes on the BBQ.

  9. Looks like such a fun time! I love visiting family back in Asia too. The Asian style BBQ looks so yummy too! Have fun Winnie! Keep in touch <3

  10. Gah this all looks so delicious. However I'm not a big fan of HK style bbq- too little work and time for too little food. Hehehe. Gimme the American massacre of meat style please.

    Miss you loads! The next time you come back it has to be more than three months- how about forever?
