HOTSPOT 13

Time for a hotspot post!
The numerous of restaurants, cafes and bars in Hong Kong 
makes it nearly impossible to make a choice. Traditional 
(dimsum, snake soup), fastfood (Mos burger, Cafe de
 Coral), worldwide cuisines - there is nothing lacking in the
food business of HK really. And I thought Asians prefer 
keeping the taste palate oriental.

During my stay in Hong Kong, I have lunched at a 
Vietnamese restaurant called: Mini Paris Vietnamese 
Restaurant. Vietnam had once been a colony of France, 
hence the 'Paris' in the name. I love eating Vietnamese
noodles so I was looking forward for this one. 

Lets check it out shall we?

 The interior. We sat on a nice lounge sofa. 

I've ordered 'satay' rice noodles with shrimp. Its spicy with crunchy bites here and there thanks to the bean sprout
Very delicious! 

 My cousin ordered something with pork.... 


 Together with a nice peppermint jelly drink that came along. The peppermint flavor really extinguished that spicy taste from the noodles I had first. Also put down the funky breath, if there was c:

  4. I don't think I've EVER had Vietnamese food!? But you've given it a 5/5 so I'll take your word for it that's it delicious. I don't tend to stray from dim sum and pastries when I'm HK! Although I won't lie, it got a bit of thrill visiting a McDonald's last Summer purely because I was able to use my Octopus card to pay for it hehe.

  8. Oh wow that place really looked comfy and the food really do look tasty!
    I wish I would have a chance to go to Hong Kong someday :3 It really does sound like a Food Paradise there!

    Now I'm seriously craving for that peppermint jelly drink.
    Especially because I am not good with spicy food.

  11. Your noodles look delicious! The decor in the restaurant is actually very nice, over here vietnamese food is thought of as super casual so most restaurants have minimal decor =P Peppermint jelly drink! I would have never thought of ordering that but I'm glad it toned down the spiciness and took away all possible bad breath!
