Xiao Ya Tou (SG): Pimped-up Local Fusion

I had been a tourist in Singapore countless times before moving here. The unbelievably cheap yet delicious chicken rice, char kway teow and laksa noodles at hawker centres would keep me satisfied time after time.

Hong Kong street food represent a parts of Hong Kongs food culture.

In the 1950s, because of the bad economy, many people became street food hawkers to maintain their liveihood. They sold the snacks on wooden carts in the street. The street food was cheap in price and with many variations, it become popular.

Hong Kong street food is famous to the travelers, including fishballs, egg waffle and stinky tofu. They can be found throughout the city, especially around Mong Kok.

In this project, i have to show the environment of 1980s Mong Kok Street, many street food hawkers near the cinema at night, including egg waffle, fishballs, fire chestnuts, stinky tofu, braised snacks, imitation shark fin soup and ice cream. Even though nowadays thehawkershave transformed into shops without providing seats, but the sales are still being done along the street.

If u come to visit Hong Kong, I hope that you taste those delicious street food!

Thank you for looking at my project!

Best Hong Kong Food

Everyone thinks of cha chaan teng when it comes to casual dining in Hong Kong. For the uninitiated, cha chaan teng is a no-pretense, fuss-free local eatery in Hong Kong that serves comfort food at affordable prices. These local diners are everywhere in Hong Kong and you will always find locals dining in those nondescript outlets.

A cha chaan teng is not known for service, unfortunately. It is really a place where you eat and go, or do a few quick readings of your newspapers. That said, the essence lies in savouring a moment of local delicacy amidst the humdrum of the city life.

A trip to Hong Kong is not complete without eating at Cha Chaan Teng. Here is our guide to thebest chachaan tengin Hong Kongthat we can always count on for a good local meal.

Yat Lok is one of the most famous roast goose restaurants in Hong Kong but does it really live up to its hype? This is one question that has been debated over and over again and sometimes.

The roast goose institution sits on Stanley Street in Central Hong Kong and is infamous for their atrocious service. The group of staff is some of the most impatient and rudest around; you have been warned.

But people from all over the world still brave the harsh treatment for their roast goose. Would you do the same? Well, heres what we think.

Mido Cafe in Yau Ma Tei is one old-school cha chaan teng to visit when in Hong Kong.

Untouched by time, the cafe seems to be at a standstill. Its decor is as old-school as it can be; ancient Hong Kong still exists at Mido Cafe. Colourful wall tiles that are so tacky yet so nostalgic complemented with old tables and chairs; Mido Cafe is exactly how a cha chaan teng should be.

Our friends from Hong Kong have been urging us to make a visit and we finally did. And we finally understood why they have such high regards for this nondescript cafe that they grew up eating.

Talk about a family-friendly seafood restaurant in Hong Kong, and locals would probably direct you toChuk Yuen Seafood Restaurant.

That old establishment has been around for decades and today, it remains a popular haunt for locals when they want an unpretentious and good meal with family and friends.

Chuk Yuen Seafood Restaurant has a menu of dim sum items and seafood. And in particular, the famous Cheese Lobster deserves a special mention. Be prepared to wait in line for a table no matter what time of the day you go; their popularity is simply undeniable.

There is no lack of cha chaan teng in Mong Kok, Hong Kong. When you ask locals about their favourites, youd get a myriad of answersHong Lin Restaurant in Mong Kokwould probably be one of them.

We cannot agree more that it is one local eatery that you must visit if you are on the Kowloon side. Heres what we loved from our visit, some of the must-orders and some misses.

Singaporeans are evidently obsessed with Hong Kong and theendless opening of Hong Kong gourmet brands on our sunny islandis testimony to that fact. While most travellers only spenda weekend in the Pearl of the Orient, we strongly suggest you to re-visit the city this year.

We know how Hong Kongs dense skyscrapers might be suffocating over time. For a quick escapade, head over to the laid back Repulse Bay for a temporary change of environment.
