Hong Kong Street Food – Rice Noodles Recipe

Hong Kong is a food heaven with countless delicious food, from street food to Michelin starred restaurants, you can pretty much taste the world in this little city. One of my favorite street food, some times serve in restaurants (dim sum or congee restaurants), is rice noodles loaded with sweet soy sauce, peanut sauce and hoisin sauce (the original “sweet sauce” is not available in US), sprinkles with some toasted sesame, the most traditional way to serve it. If you like it spicy, add a few drop of Sriracha wouldn’t hurt.
