Eating our way through Mong Kok and Kowloon. Amazing Flying Fish Roe Sausage and steamed milk the Yee Shun Milk Company. Oh yeah....
We're still eating our way through day 4 of our Hong Kong street food fest. There's so much food here and only so we can physically eat. It's a tough life We are stuffed but when we find a Flying Fish Roe Sausage stand we just have to make room in our tums. There's a few varieties. Miss Chicken opts for Sakura Shrimp Sausage while I'm a Squid Sausage man.
These little beauties are served on a stick. The owner reads us well and goes to the trouble of chopping the sausages and making us 'half & half' sticks so we each can try both flavours. The Sakura Shrimp Sausage is divine with nice strong wasabi kick. The Squid Sausage is insanely good: black with squid ink, it had a flavour that was familiar but I don't know how to described, it reminded me of tea eggs, this blew my little mind.
The Flying Fish Roe Sausage stand is somewhere in Mong Kok. Thumbs up.
Groovy tile mosaics, random alley, Mong Kok.
Walking back to our hotel we see this cow of happiness. The Yee Shun Milk Company.
We had no idea what the The Yee Shun Milk Company does, but they make this.
The speciality is 'steamed milk' we try the coffee flavour which is good but not mind blowing.
We tried to order the egg flavour which was the lovely yellow one a few pictures up. But the food gods intervened and we go the 'original' flavour which was sensational. I'm not sure how it was made, it was milk thickened to a a set custard-like consistency with a lovely thick layer of milk skin on top. The flavour was once again familiar yet difficult to describe: milky and comforting.
There's a few branches of Yee Shun Milk Company around.
