If you love eggs you'll love this egg dish!  My grandma 奶奶 used to make this special treat for us sometimes when she had a moment to spare.  It was such fun to eat these little egg wrapped meat pockets...I would always use my hands to eat it when grandma wasn't looking!  

There's something so satisfying about the tender light texture of the egg wrapped around all that tasty meaty goodness...it's comfort food at its best.  This traditional Chinese Egg Omelet with Minced Pork & Preserved Radish 煎蛋角 is a simple pork filled egg omelet flavored with the unique sweet salty umami of Chinese fermented radish.

Here's a treat straight from the past of Hong Kong!  These simple to make and yummilicious snacks were sold from street vendors to children in the 50s and 60s of Hong Kong.  The conveniently sandwiched stick allows children to eat their snacks and run around at the same time.  A type of Hong Kong  lollipop, if you will.  

Both savory and sweet, these Maltose Crackers 麥芽糖夾餅 are unique snacks from Hong Kong's past!  Plus they're so easy to make that kids can do it themselves, with some supervision during the maltose part...you don't want to come back and find them ensnarled in a sugary web!
