Hong Kong – Street Snacks

This may not look like the most interesting “street” stall around because it simply looks like a fly by night stall front in Argyle Centre. The area was really small and it really doesn’t look very appealing. However, you could regret if you dismiss this and walk by without trying. In fact, that happened to me. I noticed this stall when I was in Hong Kong 4 years go but didn’t give it much thought, until much later when I see people posting about this on Instagram. Luckily I had the chance to return this year and undo the mistake of not trying it.

it took me a while to figure how it works. Basically every packet of ingredient including noodles costs HK$3 unless stated otherwise. You choose as many as you want and they’ll mix it up for you. Everything is served cold.

Between 5 – 7 ingredients is normal I suppose. The outcome was DELICIOUS! You just have to trail and error to get what is best for you, but I was very satisfied with my spinach noodles, seaweed (the dark green thing), black fungus, squid and fish skin with garlic and chili sauce. It cost HK$15 ($2.40) for mine and it was so satisfying!

Snacks stalls like the above are common all over Hong Kong based on observation. This particular stall was spotted somewhere in Causeway Bay.

肠粉套餐 – HK$20 ($3.52)
鱼蛋 (6) – HK$10 ($1.76)

The set actually comes with cheung fun, 3 siew mai and 3 fish balls. I’d say this is quite decent and probably just average. I am not a fan of fish balls to begin with. If I had to pick I would choose the cheung fun as the best item here.
