One of my favorite pastries in Hong Kong- the chicken tart, gai pie (not to be confused with the totally different Taiwanese g-pie), or 雞批, is a miniature savory tart that is widely available at pastry shops. Originally imported from the U.K., now the locals have adapted the chicken pie into a local version. Ingredients vary, but chunks of chicken, ham, mushroom and onions seasoned with shaoxing wine, soy sauce in a Cantonese bechamel thickened with corn starch, in a buttery crust whose top is sliced into a criss-cross diamond pattern. Savory and delicious.
Strolled by Kam Fung in Wanchai unplanned one day. Cannot resist their hot-off-the-oven chicken tarts. Too hot to touch or even eat. Had to wait a few minutes. $12 each. Moist chicken seasoned well. Very good. Perfect walk-around snack.
