Whenever I prepare lotus root, dried octopus and pork soup I cannot help but think of Tai O and its stores displaying dried products: octopus, fish maws, shrimps, scallops, etc under rows of bright red lights. I already wrote about Tai O village in a previous post. At week-ends tourists and locals alike packed the former fishing and salt-making village to enjoy its charm and fresh seafood.
