pork bunanza

This week we had some time off teaching, so we've had the chance to do some exploring of the city and try some amazing food - namely all-you-can-eat sushi, pineapple and coconut bread, frozen yoghurt, chestnut tarts, bubble tea, freshly squeezed fruit juices...the list goes on. The main highlight was a dim sum lunch at the world's cheapest Michelin-starred restaurant, where the pork buns are absolutely sublime. We queued from 9.30am for a lunch spot, but apparently they do takeaway as well - a potentially dangerous discovery!

Pork buns!

Other amazing food discoveries included XTC gelato, which reputedly serves the best ice cream in Asia. Their clover honey yoghurt, pistachio and rose petal flavours are wonderfully yummy and refreshing.

Ellie and I also had a fabulous evening at the Temple Street Night Market, culminating in a spectacular 11.30pm curry at the infamous Chungking mansions, which tasted much better than it looked...

Chungking Mansions - not somewhere to be explored alone...

The pick and mix shops also have endless varieties of tempting sweeties to choose from...

The most difficult thing is choosing where to begin!
