Tapioca tales

Tapioca always gets bad press. The locals have bad memories of eating nothing but tapioca during the Japanese occupation and the expats have bad memories of soggy tapioca puddings.

But when they're freshly steamed or boiled in lightly salted water, they are delicious.

I bought HK$15 worth of the tuber off the woman by the pier and dined on the woody sweet chunks dipped in brown sugar the whole day. Yums!
