My recent food hunt in Hong Kong took me to Sham Shui Po (深水埗) where many good eateries reside.
As there is only limited room in one’s stomach, I only managed to try the following:
Wai Kee Noodle Cafe (維記咖啡粉麵) – Known for their pork liver noodles.
Kung Wo Soya Bean Factory (公和荳品廠) – A perennial favourite with the locals since 1893, their soya bean foodstuffs are fresh and tasty!
Another popular eatery which I haven’t tried is:
Lau Sum Kee (劉森記麵家) – Famous for its noodles with shrimp roe and is one of the few remaining places in Hong Kong that makes its own noodles by kneading the dough using a long bamboo pole.
Address: G/F, 48 Kweilin Street, Sham Shui Po
Open 12pm – 1am Daily.
Sham Shui Po is also known for its street markets for electronic devices and clothes.
There are many clothing shops found along Cheung Sha Wan Road and fashion designers come here to buy wholesale fabrics. There is a variety of different genres of clothes and you’ll need time to scour the row of shops on both sides of this busy road to look for good buys or whatever appeals to you. I must say that the prices of some of the items are really cheap!
Another popular place is the Apliu Street Flea Market where you can find both new and second-hand computers, electronics and other gadgets.
I was wandering aimlessly and even stumbled onto this street which has shops selling fresh meat and produce and also houses a market.
Be warned that you can easily get lost in the maze of crowded streets which to some may look similar.
