7th Stop: Fish Ball Shop along Tung Choi Street (HKD3/stick)
After visiting the Dim dim sum, this stop of underwhelmed me. I’ve had my fill and had so much creative juices going in my head that it didn’t strike me as interesting enough.
And there was just too many choices on the stalls that made me look away for the time being.
8th Stop: Red Bean Pastry Bun at Red Bean Pastry (HKD4)
This was their old fashioned Chinese kakanin shop. I had a bite of their sticky rice cake stuffed in a sweetened red bean paste. It was like eating tikoy, piyaya and hopia rolled into one. It was good and tasted very familiar
G/F 135 Fa Yuen St. Mongkok
9th Stop: Modos
We ended our Hong Kong food tour at Modos. This 4-month old ice cream shop along Bute Street sells premium pudding and ice cream.
This was one of the more trendier establishments around, providing hip new products innovations from the more traditional Hongkong fare. It was the perfect nightcap for a long and interesting journey.
Hong kong continues to interest me the more I visit, and hearing stories from these guides is enough food for thought that it will keep me craving on my next visit. Indeed there are more layers to peel of from this old and storied city. I will surely have my appetite and thinking cap ready when I return.
