First meal in HKIA

This was a slightly different first meal in comparison with the previous trip and a first time with airport food here. With what sounds like digression on hindsight, visiting Hong Kong has so far been interesting because I get to re-align my spectrum of taste of both the expected and sometimes, unexpected. I might have mentioned before that the food here wasn't all that different from home but was also different in flavours that it might have been another thing altogether.

These were just a quick meal between breakfast and lunch that was the option based on the arrival timing. What in Chinese/Cantonese is referred to as the 3 treasure rice and a bowl of ubiquitous wanton noodles from Maxim's Food² (Unit No.5T151, Passenger Terminal 1, Hong Kong International Airport, Lantau) at the Arrival Hall in the Terminal 1. Back to the previous topic on the alignment of flavours, the salted egg was definitely less salty here. Soy sauce chicken packed a burst of flavour that can only be uncommonly found back home.

I'm definitely learning not to ignore airport food here. Appearances can be deceiving.
