Hanukkah in Hong Kong!!

As a last minute Hanukkah treat, my parents came to visit us! Daniel and I headed into Hong Kong on Friday to meet up with them and spend the weekend eating and hanging out. Daniel's parents had mailed us a menorah so we were able to light the Hanukkah candles, even though we were in China. The highlight of the weekend was the journey to Sai Kung located in the New Territories. We went to a restaurant that Anthony Bourdain visited called "Chuen Kee". Their specialty is extremely fresh seafood... so fresh that it is still alive when you pick it out! We tried big prawns, scallops, razor clams, and some really delicious dim sum.

We also had a few really tasty meals all located at "Knutsford Terrace", which is a little street that is packed with restaurants of every variety... we tried Italian, Indian/Thai, and a fusion place. It was great to be able to celebrate the holiday with my parents!

We continued to celebrate Hanukkah on our own in Shenzhen. We lit the candles and even made some very yummy latkes!
