If you’re longing for a respite from rich and oil-laden food, the grilled squid tentacles are the perfect snack for you.
Tourists may find this kind of grub strange, but locals flock to stalls that serve these especially after office hours – a good sign that these skewered stuff are absolutely delicious.
The tentacles are grilled for a chewy and rubbery texture. What makes these nibbles very flavorful is the sauce that is usually in teriyaki, honey, barbecue or chili. Tip: Brush the tentacles with any of the first 3 sauces mentioned and combine it with the chili sauce to have lip-smacking goodness.
Hong Kong abounds with stalls that sell them at super low prices.
