Stellar Street Eats

Hong Kong

It goes without saying that a good meal doesn’t always have to come from a fancy restaurant, a prime example being some of the finest dishes in Hong Kong taking form in the humblest of food stalls hiding in plain sight. These places aren’t just loved and known by locals, as they’re actually recognized by the Michelin Guide as well. Stroll around the city streets and check out a couple of spots worthy of a nod from the Michelin inspectors. You won’t have to go too far to find them—all you have to do is look around!

Chin Sik

千色車仔麵

Recommendation posted 29 May 2018

Get your fill of Hong Kong-style cart noodles at Chin Sik. Take your pick of toppings that range from the unusual pig skin, chicken feet, and pig intestines to the standard dumplings and fish balls. Narrow and tiny, the store houses a few tables and serves up bowls canteen-style, with a smorgasbord of ingredients laid out for you to choose from. A beloved fixture in the Hong Kong street food scene, Chin Sik is the place to be for hearty servings of tasty and filling noodles.

Mak Kee

麥記美

Recommendation posted 29 May 2018

Mak Kee has also received one of the most prestigious plates in the culinary world from the Michelin Guide itself. A simple, unassuming booth with a Chinese only sign, it’s mostly famous for its pan-fried dumplings, fish balls, and Xiao Long Bao. Feel free to enjoy the savory treats on their own or have the servers douse them with their special spicy sauce. Look for a sidewalk table nearby to sit down, and try to not devour everything in just one sitting!

Wing On

榮安小食

Recommendation posted 29 May 2018

Wing On is a 50-year-old street food joint situated in Tsuen Wan where handmade noodles are topped with chicken wing tips and a spicy, curry-like sauce. While here, admire the photographs on display that showcase their noodle-making skills using bamboo tools. It’s pretty much a hole-in-the-wall, but it has become a Hong Kong institution over the years. Expect to dine alongside hungry locals—it’s all part of the experience!

Block 18 Doggie's Noodle

十八座狗仔粉

Recommendation posted 29 May 2018

Located near Temple Street Night Market, Block 18 Doggie’s Noodle is the ideal place to fill your rumbling tummy after walking and shopping around Temple Street. Their signature “Doggie” Noodles, which resemble a dog’s tail (hence, the name) are made out of rice flour and are shorter and springier than the usual. Experiment with all sorts of flavors by adding chili to your broth, which comes with a sprinkling of salted radish, fried pork fat, and mushrooms. They’re open 24/7, so go ahead and join locals for some roadside dining no matter the time of the day!

Keung Kee

強記美食

Recommendation posted 29 May 2018

It may look like your regular food stall, but don’t sleep on Keung Kee just yet! A must-visit when in Wan Chai, it has lovingly captured the attention of the Michelin Guide inspectors with their sticky glutinous rice topped with Chinese sausages. For something a little lighter, their rice rolls and sweet soups are must-tries. No need to hang around the shopfront while you eat, as a tiny room behind it comes with a few tables enough to accommodate you and other famished friends.

Kelly's Cape Bop

Recommendation posted 29 May 2018

Kelly’s Cape Bop gives you a slice of Korea in the middle of the bustling streets of Wan Chai. The Michelin Guide has taken notice of this humble eatery, all thanks to their cheap yet tasty Korean street food. Munch on yummy Korean fried chicken or Kimbap (Korean sushi rolls), but don’t miss out on the Tteokbokki (dok-boh-kee, meaning spicy rice cakes). Save some room for their Kimchi, too, as Kelly’s makes their very own!
