In all my 7 years in Hong Kong, once in a while, I get to eat some decent home-made food by Elena . Today, we had Winter Solstice (做冬）at Aunt M’s and it was nice to have some home-cooked food again:

Abalone for a $300 can
Winter Solstice Dinner at Kam Tao
And my favourite dishes:
Steamed shrimp – a twist from the GZ restaurants by putting in coriander and spring onion while steaming
Steamed fish – canton style
Stewed chicken with mushroom, black cloud ear and sea cucumber. I am still not a fan of sea cucumber, but unlike before, I can eat it at least. Love the chicken and black cloud ear in this dish and gotta learn how to make this from Elena before I leave.
And of course…the chicken soup boiled for about 4 hours with dried abalone and conch

Fresh steamed chicken – even with the “key kheen”!!!
