In between snapping selfies with all and sundry, British TV chef Jamie Oliver showed a keen interest in the goods on sale in a typical Hong Kong wet market during his flying visit to the city this week. 

He looked in fascination at the fish in tanks and laid out on ice at the Bowrington Road wet market, and took photos of the different types of fresh seafood, chunks of meat hanging from hooks at the pork and beef shops, roasted meats at places selling siu mei, and the sea cucumbers, scallops, bird's nest and abalone.

He said he had congee for breakfast.

“My favourite was the blood congee ... it was delicious. But we put doughnuts in the congee, which was a surprise."
