In a forum on bike riding, a cyclist from Hong Kong wrote the following confession:
hi, i am a 36 years old Hongkongese living in Hong Kong. For cycling, I eat some chinese foods that you may find awful.
For example, chicken legs. Southern Chinese eat chicken legs. There are many ways to cook chicken legs. The chicken legs i eat are done in the way whereby you submerge them in vinega for a prolonged period of time so it is very softened. You take out the bones and you eat the whole of it except the crawls. It is said that it is rich in collagen and is good for your skeletal-muscular system.
Another thing is cow’s tendon. The usual ways people here eat cow’s tendon by boiling them in soup, and then serve with soup noodle. In chinese medicine theory, cow’s tendone is good for aerobic capacity, and the collagen is also good for skin and skeletal-muscular system.
I am not sure if they would serve it in your nearby china town (if you are intereted in trying at all). When i was studying London i could find them.
