10 Irresistible Red Meat Dishes in Hong Kong

10 Irresistible Red Meat Dishes in Hong Kong

No one eats bacon to be healthy. Most of us eat it as a treat or at most once or twice a week. The same can be said about burgers, ribs, sausages and steak – all dishes we know we shouldn’t be eating everyday. In fact, an occasional steak can even be good for you as it contains iron, zinc, protein and vitamin B12.

The key to a healthy and happy life is finding the right balance and while it might not be easy at times, there’s no point in cutting out all the good stuff. Ahead, here is a list of the best meaty dishes in Hong Kong to prove exactly why you should continue treating yourself to some red meat.
