One of the manymany things I love about Hong Kong is the accessibility and convenience of transportation, communication...
…and acquisition of my favorite Shanghai Hairy Crabs.
When I was still living in the city, here's what I would always do in the months of November and December: http://www.jinlovestoeat.com/2009/11/hairy-crab-at-flat-c3.html
Now that I am but a mere tourist, I just get a quick fix at Shanghai restaurants.
Wu Kong's Shanghai Hairy Crab Set Menu A
Yummy pickled turnip appetizer
Braised Shark's Fin with Hairy Crab Meat
which Mom loves
Hairy Crab Meat on Steamed Sticky Rice and Sauteed Sugar Pea Shoots
which Dad wipes out in no time
Hairy Crab Meat with Pork Dumpling
which we all enjoy because it is so generous with fillings
And, drum rolls, please!
Steamed Shanghai Hairy Crab oozing with goodness
which I excitedly devour
Someone please stop me from molesting my monitor!!!
I worry about Mom and Dad's cholesterol levels and insist I should have their shares
What sacrifice a loving daughter must make for her parents!
Sesame Rice Dumpling in Ginger Tea
It isn't a very big dinner with lots and lots of food.
It is a beautiful, well thought out one, short and sweet.
Shanghai Hairy Crabs, I eat you again soon!
