Scrumptious and Where do you sit while watching TV? (This week's Photo Hunt themes)
While going through my photo archive in search of images that fit Sandi's and Gattina's choices of themes for this week's Photo Hunt, I got to realizing how many scrumptious meals I've had in Hong Kong (never mind other parts of the world) over the past few years -- and also remembering how certain multi-course or -dish meals can be quite uneven, with some distinct 'lows' but also some pretty amazing 'highs' on the scrumptious scale!
Somewhat coincidentally, the two food photos in today's blog entry were taken over the course of those kinds of meals. More specifically, the top-most picture is of a portion of absolutely delicious Iberico ham that had been aged for 36 months, accompanied on the plate by a refreshing spoonful of a concoction that included fish roe along with vegetarian ingredients, that was part of a sadly ultimately disappointing dinner at the (in)famous Bo Innovation; with the other food shot being of an incredibly scrumptious crab roe-(chicken) egg custard dish at an otherwise unmemorable meal at a Japanese crab restaurant in Causeway Bay.
Just last Sunday, I had another scrumptious meal that, in retrospect, I really should have taken a photo of -- not least because it marked the first time in decades that I had had gammon steak, a dish that I only ever had previously been served in England. Instead, I fixated on the fact that the place where I had my post-hike dinner had a television -- so could take a photo that would work for Gattina's "Where do you sit while watching TV?" query (because, if truth be told, I hardly ever watch TV -- especially in my apartment! Indeed, the last time I did so there, it was for the Opening Ceremony of the 2008 Beijing Olympics!)! :D
