PandaExcursion: What do you know about Hong Kong?

Hong Kong  

This mystical metropolis that holds millions of people.  The sheer magnitude of action and movement is almost intimidating as the hustle and bustle of Hong Kong plays out 24 hours of the day.   Hong Kong is the world's 4th most densely populated cities with about 7.2 million citizens. The official language of Hong Kong is Cantonese. The people that in Hong Kong have the longest life expectancy with the median being 83 years. In 1997 Hong Kong became a special administrative region of the People's of Republic of China which means that it maintains a separate political and economic system from China!

Hong Kong is located on the Victoria Harbor and is the world's fifth busiest port.  Hong Kong has the most sky scrapers, 1,223 skyscrapers to be exact! and because of the lack of space there are few older buildings remaining, because of this Hong Kong is a center for modern architecture.

The Cuisine of Hong Kong is a medley of Cantonese cuisine, British cuisine, and other Western cuisines, Japan, and Southeast Asia.  Cantonese Cuisine is the style of cooking that most people think of when they they think of Chinese food.  Cantonese cuisine use steaming, stir frying, shallow frying, double steaming, braising and deep frying.  The dishes should be well balanced both in spice as well as with oil so they are not overly greasy and that the spice does not take over the main ingredients. In the Cantonese cuisine they use lots of fresh ingredients and an array of proteins ranging from pork and beef to seafood and chicken. Most of these dishes are served with a bed of Rice.

fun fact* The people of Hong Kong generally eat 5 times a day but the serving sizes are considerable smaller than those in United States.

 

 

 

 

TheRiceBowl: How to make Cajun Spice!

At the Windchimes Chinese, we take the time to offer you authentic Chinese cuisine but we also love to explore and incorporate other culture's flavors and techniques into our menu.   For instance, Our Pacific Shrimp is lighting battered shrimp laid onto a bed of fresh spinach and pasta all drizzled over with a cajun sauce. This delicious dish is a true Asian fusion style dish incorporating American Cajun, Chinese, and Italian cuisines.

Cajun cuisine comes out of Louisiana.  The history goes back to the French speaking Acadian culture who were deported from Canada by the British after the French and Indian War.  Because the landscape and weather was so different in Louisiana from Canada, the Acadian culture had to adapt their cuisine to what vegetables and spices were available.  Not to forget to mention, they were also influenced by the Spanish settlers that were also settling in Louisiana at the time.  Hence the spicy Cajun spices.

Cajun Spice Mix.jpg

There are many spices found in Cajun Spice mixes, but the main ingredients are: bay leaf, oregano, bell peppers, black pepper, cayenne pepper, chili pepper, celery, garlic, onion, and parsley.  

Next time you are visiting Windchimes for a bite to eat. Try our Pacific Shrimp and experience the fusion of a multicultural cuisine.

Monday Magic: Get Windchimes Carryout while you watch the Solar Eclipse!

How Magical the World is to create such phenomenons as a full Solar Eclipse.  Can you imagine what the first people thought as they saw the Sun get swallowed up by another Celestial being?  How lucky we are to have such modern devices that inform us with logical evidence of what is happening.  Make sure you take the time to go outside and be in awe of this incredible world and watch the solar eclipse? (Protect your eyes with the right glasses!) In Ohio, the eclipse will start around 1:00 and end around 3:00.  Which means that you have just enough time to come in for lunch or order take out for such an occasion. I would suggest the the Green Thai Curry with Shrimp.  The Flavors are out of this World and the Ancient Curry Medley will get you pondering on life questions  such as how did we all get here?  (ha ha!)  Remember you get 10% off your entire carryout order of $30.00 or more when you pay cash!
