Central-Mid-Levels escalators

Hong Kong Dou Dou is tired after the climb...
This escalator was one of the things on our "must do" list for Hong Kong. Please do not, under any circumstances, think, for a single second, that this is a continuous moving piece that travels more than 800 meters straight up hill!!! This bad boy has several landings, and a turn or two, that must be traversed in order to reach the top. But WHAT A RIDE!

I can still close my eyes and drift back to that evening, every time I do...I become hungry. Seriously, this was the most pleasantly fragrant walk that I have ever been on, in my life.

So get to the top, take your time, categorize each aroma individually (some of these nasal sensations are not so pleasant - you have been warned) attempt to distinguish each type eatery, make a mental list of those establishments in which you would like to dine. Once arriving at that point in which there are no more magically moving stairs you must choose a place to sit and enjoy an adult beverage while dining.

As you find yourself drifting back down the stairs, oh, by the have to walk - the escalator only travels one way, down in the mornings & up in the evenings. You may change your mind a time or twenty as to where the "perfect meal" is to be had.

I have one word for you..................sushi.
