Village Dining - Tai O Fishing Village, Hong Kong

Tai O
During our last trip to Tai O, we also had a chance to dine in the village, where our local hosts cooked us simple but delish food. Let's have a look at how the kitchen looks like.

Where's the sous vide machine? Heheheh

Simple gas stove, old school rice cooker, a good start for a yummy meal.

Simple and fresh ingredients.

Pan fried tofu in soy sauce.

WTH? Isn't this Tai O Fishing Village? Where are all the seafood? Heheheh. Since this meal is organized by the company that I work for, it is strictly vegetarian. The hosts admitted that they've never prepared any vegetarian meal before and was pretty taken-aback by the request. Nevertheless, they still did a good job preparing a nice meal for us, my coworkers and I had a fantastic experience dining there.

I'll surely go back for seafood next time ^_^
