Water Spinach, Pork Belly and Roasted Duck

Typhoon Matmo battered Taipei last night and this morning.  The wind howled and shook the windows.  The rain poured heavily.  Schools and most of the stores were closed for the day.  After everything was back to normal this afternoon, I ventured out and found this nice restaurant less than one block away from where I am staying this Summer.

It’s a Hong Kongese style restaurant where they serve mostly roasted meats such as pork, duck, chicken, sausages, and with lamb thrown in for good measures.  Lamb is usually not a part of the Hong Kongese cuisine.  Lamb is more popular in northern China.

Other than the meats, they stir fried a very mean and crunchy water spinach!  Although I enjoyed the roasted meat, the water spinach was my favorite dish of the night.
