    Always liked HKIA's dining options.

      That's probably the best dining option available post security!

            Guessing it must be from both your reactions!

            I wish I didn't waste my time at Tsui Wah pre security, it was a very sub par and untimely experience!
            Za Leung was ok. Should have gotten some sweet soy sauce, eating it dry with dipping sauce paste wasn't something I was used to. Would have been willing to pay airport prices for their chow fun. But I'm guessing they would confiscate a small bottle of Yu Kwen Yick!

            Next time I'll attempt snagging a box of lo shui eats from Hungs Terminal 1, bring to T2 on the plane... But the liquid marinade will have to be just enough to make security happy... No liquids allowed on US bound flights, even post security, which is sad

              Also the Maxim's bakery pre security is a little scary. You can get pineapple buns already with a giant slab of butter inserted halfway, and it is not melted! Or those foot long baked ham and cheese bread that they call "flutes". Maybe it plays like a flute but stings like an oboe :-o.

                haha interesting i dont think ive ever seen them at a bakery like that although the cha can ting places like kam fung will serve you them with the cold butter in the middle

                somehow when the butter is cold it doesnt feel like its that bad for you even though u are clearly shaving years off your life

                  The pineapple buns look eerily like a bunch of beady eyed monsters sticking their double butter tongues out, especially the one in the front left corner...

                      Speaking of butter and lard monsters, check out this picture of a pineapple bun breakfast sandwich. I found it on Michael Lam's FB page (aka "the young god of eatery"). I can't tell whether that's strawberry jam or cha siu at the bottom...

                        you're talking about 少年食神?

                        its neither, its definitely a tomato, but i dont know that seems kind of gross like a sweet bo lo bao with a stick a butter, egg and tomato? ehhh i mean maybe its good, but id be willing to bet against that haha

                          Yep 少年食神's FB page (only his mobile uploads are visible outside friends).

                          Didn't think of tomato haha... looks like a French Fry at the bottom of the egg...

                            haha yah that sandwich is intense

                            is he worth following? the asian food blogging scene is kind of weird, they seem to get courted by the restaurants really hard, i can't always tell if they are being honest or not about how good the place is, ive definitely been lead astray a few times by some really glowing reviews by some famous food bloggers in asia

                            well i can't read enough chinese to read his reviews anyhow i guess though

                              Probably not, but the food photos were briefly interesting.
