Traditional and delicate dim sum

image

Taken with my Samsung Android (as with most of my blog snapshots) with no edits, you can still see the texture of this deep fried taro (wu gok), a traditional and delicate dim sum item that isn’t available in every Chinese restaurant. Wu gok is made with mashed taro, stuffed with diced shiitake mushrooms etc., and deep fried in a crispy batter. It takes skills and efforts to prepare this. This is my all-time childhood favorite and I can find it in a few vegetarian restaurants in Hong Kong. This was taken at Light Vegetarian Restaurant in Jordon, Hong Kong. It costs only around HK$20 (US$2.50) for this dish.
