hkvibes : Satay beef with instant noodles

Satay beef with instant noodles

Our food referential here at the hong kong blog is growing! This week’s increment is all about Satay ao yuk gong tsai min (Satay beef with instant noodles). It’s not really a meal on its own, as it often comes along with toasts. Here in China, noodles are either fried or put in soup. Gong tsai min is the Chinese (PMP) for “instant noodles” and ao stands for “beef”. More generally, meals names in Hong Kong are fairly simple: just pronounce the words corresponding to the food included in the meal. If you want fried rice with shrimps, just say “shrimp fried rice” (which sounds like ha chao fan). Here the name just means “Satay beef instant noodles”. Simple, isn’t it?

The hookah bars are sprouting up everywhere, making the hookah popular again. This time it is not the hard arabic tobacco but a flavored tobacco type.
