Next week question is: If you can meet anyone in the world, dead or alive, who would that be?

Fresh durian and Chinese-style noodles. “Liangfen”, a type of jelly noodles, mixed with durian is very sticky and smelly. I tried it once in Thailand, and local people even added loads of durian liquid extract on top!

What does a Hong Kong summer taste like?

Sushi topped with some strawberry jam is my choice.

This dish should really be much more popular among foodies because of its unique taste.

The jam combines with the rice, fish or other seafood to offer a contrast of flavours that is hard to beat.

Oreo ice cream with tomato sauce. I ate it once when I was in Primary Two, but then my parents asked me to stop. They said I would have a stomachache. I didn’t believe them, but I had to obey their orders. Now, I am old enough to have it again. The thought of Oreo ice cream mixed with sweet and sour ketchup excites me. If I feel blue, I will eat it. It will help lift my spirit!

Avocado with mustard. I hate avocado, but when I mixed it with mustard, it tasted and looked like salmon. I was really surprised!

Readers tell us the ultimate ice cream flavour

“B&B” (banana and bacon) is my all-time favourite, especially after a long day at school. Even though it sounds a bit weird, they do make a perfect match. The sweetness of banana completely melts into the salty, fried bacon. You can serve it with a piece of toast and chocolate. This is my secret recipe. It’s an amazing after-school snack!

A thick spread of Lao Gan Ma – a brand of Chinese chili oil – between two slices of bread. When I am eating it, I think I am eating a hamburger. This recipe is a combination of flavours from different cultures.

The Mid-Autumn Festival is just around the corner. You can celebrate the occasion any way you want, but mooncakes are a must. So how about some “steak mooncakes”? This kind of mooncake may look very strange but it is delicious. While containing all the usual ingredients of a beef dish, it cleverly maintains the classic shape of a traditional mooncake. These juicy treats will definitely lift your festive spirits.

If you could create a McDonald’s meal, what would it have?

I feel a little guilty about sharing this, but brown sugar really goes well with glutinous rice. My mum used to make these rice balls for breakfast every time I had morning track practice. You might say that sounds like a gob of sugar and carbohydrates, but that’s what we live for, isn’t it?

I like eating chips with my main dish, for example, rice, noodles, bread, or even chapatti. I’d definitely recommend that you try it too.

Ali Shah Baz, 17, Lok Sin Tong Wong Chung Ming Secondary School

Mangoes blend well with soy sauce. It’s my favourite combination. It may not be mainstream, but it is very tasty. The sweetness of the soy sauce neutralises the sourness of the mangoes. Some say it is good for digestion and helps prevent allergies.
