Din Tai Fung

When I'm in Hong Kong I crave Australian steak on the BBQ, BBQed sausages, lamb cutlets you don't have to take a second mortgage out to buy, chicken twisties, western chinese food ?!? (nothing beats a Ben's chicken and cashew nuts in my book!), Queensland prawns, crab caught from the bay in front of my Parent's beach house, Ice Break, Cheesemite scrolls from Bakers Delight, plain white bakery bread spread with butter and Vegemite, banana smoothies from James Street market, proper old fashioned burgers complete with beetroot and pineapple, bircher muesli, huge mangoes, lychees, ripe stone fruit, and finally that breakfast Creek ambrosia mix of eye fillet, mushroom sauce, coleslaw, baked potato topped with bacon, dusty flour top bread roll spread with butter, and beef steak tomato slice.

When I'm in Australia I crave the strawberry and the peanut butter and chocolate chip cupcakes from Sift bakery, the way any Hong Kong cake shop from the Mandarin Oriental down to Starbucks make a mean baked blueberry cheesecake, decent unpasterised cheese from around the world, the way verve cliquot is our free flow, Crystal Jade noodle soups, and Din Tai Fung dumplings.

Speaking of Din Tai Fung... we got our fix on the weekend...
