In The Mood For Seafood? These Are The 10 Best Calamari Places in Hong Kong

Calamari is a sea food eaten the world over, in many different ways. The great thing about Squid is its versatility. It can be deep fried in rings, covered in egg and flour batter, and it can be chopped up and cooked in stews and casseroles. It’s also very good marinated, grilled or barbecued. However, it is probably loved the most in the Mediterranean, where they call Squid, Calamari.

The name seems to have stuck with the Far East too, and in Hong Kong, everyone knows what’s meant by the name, even if there are a hundred different ways of preparing this low fat, mineral rich food. For a guide to different ways of enjoying this versatile seafood read on:
