Livestock

In this post, we will talk about the names of different kinds of livestock we can find in the wet market.  Surely not including dog meat, it is a forbidden food in Hong Kong. 🙂

In Chinese culture, we eat all kind of meat, for example pork, beef and lamb.  The most popular one is pork, for we can cook it in various ways.  We use different part of pork to cook different dishes according to the pork’s texture.   For the bone, we cook soup with vegetable or Chinese medicine.

The information is abstracted  from the food database built by the Association For Hong Kong Catering Services Management Ltd.  It categorized the food into different sorts – sea fish, meat (livestock), vegetable and etc.

There are no related photos in this post, but you can find the photos by clicking the Chinese characters which are linked to the database. Continue reading “Livestock”

Sea fish

Why not no “How to survive” series for a long time?

I have been thinking of continuing the series “How to survive in Hong Kong Wet Market” for a long time, but there were a lot of difficulties.  It is hard to find photos in various kinds of seafood, meat and other foods.  Copyright of photos is another issue to prevent it happen.  Making video without good photos cannot be achieved!

Recently, I found a website of food database built by the Association For Hong Kong Catering Services Management Ltd.  It categorized the food into different sorts – sea fish, meat, vegetable and etc.  Then I started thinking of changing my target from making videos to writing posts.
