I can't not deny that I'm not spoiled.
But being the favourite nieces does undoubtedly have its perks.
My aunt is the youngest of 7 siblings and just enjoying life in Hong Kong.
Luckily, her form of enjoyment is usually eating or shopping
And she always knows about the hippest or best specialty restaurants.
And me and my sisters are always invited!
This time she insisted on Saboten in Causeway Bay (the SoHo of Hong Kong basically).
This restaurant has been the talk around town for their Japanese cutlets.
You're thinking, Japanese pork cutlets? Does deep-fried things I can get anywhere?
Oh but it's so much more, my dears.
First, you're given a bowl of seasame seeds and a wooden stick that acts as a pestle, which you can grind to add to your tonkatsu sauce. I get to play with my food? This place is an A in my books already.
Then with every set you order, you get a huge sharing bowl piled high with crispy cabbage salad that was perfect and refreshing for a dinner of fried stuff.
This place has every katsu you can ever imagine. Scallops, shrimp, chicken, thinly sliced pork stuffed with asaparagus, pork with lots of cracked pepper (one of the best dish, in my opinion)..
But, my favourite was the tiger prawns that were bigger than the size of my face.
And I got one all to myself!
Unfortunately, I am a million miles away from Hong Kong now and am reduced to drooling over my pictures. But if you're in HK/going to visit soon, I recommend a trip here.
