The terrific crew at our fave snake shop pulled out all the stops—um, snakes—today for our honored guest Chef Gilbert Pilgram @playboydelmundo @zunicafe #chezpanisse #hongkongfood
We’ve spent the last few days stunned and speechless. @anthonybourdain meant a lot to Team LAHK in so many ways. Our team members @deeseebeaucoup and Johannes were eating and drinking with him just a few months ago, when he came to Hong Kong. Of course we were fans. It seems like only yesterday we worked on the launch of his show, Parts Unknown, in Hong Kong. We were thrilled to help with that, because in a very real way Bourdain helped launch us too. Because of Bourdain’s outspoken enthusiasm for our city and its food, people from all over the world came to Hong Kong to eat. That was, and is an enormous gift to our business. We owe a great deal to Bourdain’s open heart and generosity. We intend to carry his spirit forward in our work every day. Anthony Bourdain loved Hong Kong as we do. And we love him for that. We bid him farewell as he sails peacefully into the starlight on the eternal Star Ferry.
Basically you need to get up to the Peak RIGHT NOW if you happen to be in Hong Kong. You may never see a view this clear. #nofilterneeded
Two fishball noodle shops next door to each other in Shau Kei Wan. How to choose? Well if you are in the mood for variety you pick Wong Lam Kee. Here you can select your favorite chewy orbs, from cuttlefish balls to peppery beef balls, to plain jane balls spiked with bits of spring onion. Condimentize with homemade chili, dried pickled vegetable and--big winner--a heaping spoon of freshly dry fried garlic. What an easy choice! It's all easy when you come on a private food crawl with the HK experts!
