...and I saved the best for last. Our very first meal in Hong Kong for this trip ended up to be the very best. And instead of blabbing endlessly, I will just let the pictures do the talking. Look on and get ready for some food porn!

It usually takes a lot for a restaurant to satisfy the discerning tastes of everyone in our family, but Mott 32 managed to do just that. And not just satisfy, we were blown away! Every single dish served that meal was oh so delicious! And among all the dishes, two were standouts: First, the quail egg with truffle siu mai. Who would've thought that you CAN put an entire soft-boiled quail egg inside a siu mai, and that the truffle would compliment it so well? Heaven.
Second is the BBQ Prime Iberico Pork with Honey. OH. MY. GOSH. Have you seen the marbling on the last photo?! That must have been the BEST piece of pork that any one of us has ever tasted. The meat was so tender and tasty, it was literally like eating marshmallows. No exaggerations there. Even my mom, who claims she never really did like char siu pork, says that she still dreams of this dish a few weeks after. If you could only get one dish from Mott 32, then this is it. Must. Not. Miss. I will definitely be back the next time, and the next, and the next. 5 out of 5 stars!
Mott 32 is at Standard Chartered Building, 4-4a Des Voeux Road, Central, Hong Kong.
