If you are of a squeamish disposition, look away now. This cup contains: hot water, a raw egg and a liberal-sized spoonful of sugar. It’s something of an old-fashioned tradition in Hong Kong, their equivalent of jellied-eels or spam. I spent lunchtime today sharing a table with this very beverage and it was, to say the very least, a traumatic experience.
