From curry fish balls to pineapple buns, there’s a lot to love about Hong Kong’s colorful food culture—and now, our favorite bites have been immortalized in a brand new stamp collection.
Aptly called “Local Snacks in Hong Kong,” the Hongkong Post has unveiled a stamp series highlighting the best of the city’s traditional street food and cha chan teng staples.
The stamp sheetlets will be issued on April 22, but pre-orders are now available on Hongkong Post’s website.
The collection features iconic Hong Kong delicacies such as fish balls, stewed skewers and stuffed three treasures.
Another set celebrates local desserts like tofu pudding, maltose crackers and the quintessential egg waffles.
According to Hongkong Post, the stamps are produced with an embossing technique, creating a three-dimensional effect.
Hongkong Post has previously issued other special stamps that resonate with local culture.
The “Dragon and Lion Dance” series, for example, highlights the traditional Tai Hang fire dragon dance, held annually during the Mid-Autumn Festival. Another collection, “Romance of the Three Kingdoms,” was inspired by classical Chinese literature novels.
