Friday’s Featured Food: Cheese Oysters in Tai O, Hong Kong.

Today on Friday’s Featured Food it’s the turn of seafood. I admit I’m not a big fan of seafood and despite the fact I’ve tried hundreds of dishes from the sea, if given the choice, I’ll always side with pork or beef ahead of any type of fish or seafood. But now and then my tastebuds want to try something from the ocean.

The Magnificent Tai O Fishing Village in Hong Kong.

Tai O in Hong Kong is a magnificent traditional Chinese fishing Village. In fact anyone ever visiting Hong Kong should have this as the number one sight. There is so much to do at Tai O, from dolphin watching to cruising to hiking, the beaches, the market, the food.

This village is often termed as the Venice of Hong Kong. And rightly so. You can read a longer post I wrote about exploring Tai O Fishing Village.

You can stop off and snack at the many markets in Tai O – this is vintage China, far away from the gaping skyscrapers of Kowloon and Hong Kong Island.

Most of the snacks are seafood and the idea of Cheese Oysters really appealed to me. I love cheese, so at least one ingredient was perfect.

What price are the cheese oysters?

Oysters range from between 15 – 20 Hong Kong Dollars each. Sometimes a deal if you order a few. This is cheap enough even by Hong Kong standards. You can certainly look around and find a good deal. We managed to get 3 for 50 HKD.
