Tomato meat sauce on rice: typical Hong Kong lunch

Tomato meat sauce on rice: typical Hong Kong lunch
People often ask me, or comment that, "when I go to Hong Kong, I really look forward to trying the authentic Chinese food..."

I often smile, and pause for a second or two, sigh, then respond with "great, yes, you can find very authentic Chinese food in Hong Kong, that is for sure, but most Hong Kong folks eat meals that are "East Meets West". No, I don't mean deep fried chicken balls, those are truly Americanized Chinese food, but Hong Kong people often eat spaghetti meat sauce on rice (instead of on spaghetti) or deep fried pork chop cutlet on rice etc.

The Britons, French, Portuguese, Russians, Germans, Dutch, Danish, Norwegians, Italians, Americans, Canadians, Australians, New Zealanders, Arabs, Jews, Indians, Pakistanis, Malays and Japanese have been coming to Hong Kong to trade since the 1840s, and they brought their food to Hong Kong, which the local Chinese embrace and adept to it by putting their cuisines on rice, creating a unique HK-style Chinese food that you don't find in other parts of China.

Ja, inderdaad. But purely a HK specialty. But because there are so many HK expats now in Canada, the U.S., Australia and UK, you can also find typical HK-style meals overseas.
