Freakiest food you've eaten in Hong Kong?

  • 6

I love the show "Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmern" and have been a fan for a few years now. What's the freakiest/strangest thing you've eaten in Hong Kong? Where's the place you ate it at?

  1. I didn't eat them but several years ago in HK the men at the table next to ours had two rather exotic dishes. One was a plate of live dancing shrimp I was told were in wine and the next dish was monkey brain being served in the skull. At that time they were both rather bizarre but after Zimmerman I can't imagine anything being bizarre.

        Gosh, I thought eating monkey's brains in HK was some urban legend.

        1. Haven't tried it myself but saw the guy next to my table eating 'cow's penis' in the 'Clear broth Beef Brisket' place in Tai-Po
