A taste of authentic Hong Kong Nostalgia inside Dynasty Plaza Food Court, Scarborough

Charles Yu | Jul 9, 2014 03:03 PM

One of the most loved, tasty and exotic delicacies I had whilst growing up in Hong Kong was a dish of nicely prepared 'Braised Beef Entrails served with rice noodle -Ho Fun '. Slow cooked for hours in a complex gravy with a multitude of herbs and spices, the tender and chewy end product can be amazing in taste and texture.

I was surprised to encounter this authentic and nostalgic dish whilst browsing inside the busy food court of 'Dynasty Plaza' ( Sheppard and Glen Walford ). So well prepared and delicious, this bowl of beef entrails containing Tripe, Stomach, Spleen, Lung and Intestine can be spooky to most but a taste of heaven for some aficionados who love exotic ingredients! Quality and taste can easily rub shoulder with some of Hong Kong's best!

Only minute downside was the slightly tough lung morsels which I have conveyed to the chef who promised me to make them more tender from now on.

Cannot wait to go back for another bowl!!
