Maxim's

It's time for a food pix ;-)...that's our dinner at the Maxim's restaurant (yes, same name as the famous one in Paris). Maxim's is a restaurant chain, it is usually not the best place for adventurous gourmet seekers but definitely a safe place for tourists or sometimes, for locals who are looking for more basic dishes.
Btw, how's your chopsticks skill? Since I was holding the camera, I couldn't show you the perfect way...maybe next time.

Modesty? I'm sure you can do pirouettes with chopsticks, hold the camera at the same time and are worthy of a place on a top chopstick dexterity display team. As for me, I can pick up large things (about the size of a ping pong ball, although not spherical -heaven forbid) but usually end up asking for a fork.

That all looks yummy. Is it true that people in Hong Kong enjoy going out to eat at least twice a week?

Looks delicious, what are the brown things with the shrimp? I could use a chopstick lesson!

This looks so delicious. The colours in the photo are great. I think that you need to change your profile from 'not a photographer'.

To attempt an answer to Nicola's question - its oyster sauce? - just a guess

 

Blogger Lisi said ... (June 17, 2006 6:44 PM) :

Bob, you have all seeing eys

Nerissa, I'm not sure but I think people do in most big cities.

Nicola, they are oyster sauce and prawn sauce

Felicia, the brown stuff is some kind of mushroom

Kala, yes, I like Jai (that's vegetarian food)
