Street Food in Mongkok (Hongkong)

Once we settled in the hotel, we met up with C's friends who brought us to a street in Mongkok for street food! πŸ˜‹

Street Food!

We took a bus there, and if I am not wrong, it was along Dundas Street and its surrounding area. When we alighted off the bus, it was relatively quiet, but as we neared, it was bustling with people, activity and food; certainly a sight to behold.

We turned at Yim Po Fong Street after we alighted the bus and it seemed pretty quiet.

The crowd seemed really sparse and I was wondering where we were going...

But soon we were 'greeted' with the onslaught of people, lights and food!

There were as many food options as there were people, it was honestly a little chaotic and can be intimidating if you are alone. πŸ˜…


Hot.Com French Fries

Our first stop was Hot.Com French Fries caught our attention and we were soon ordering: there are so many different combinations of french fries with sides and sauces to choose from. The fries were served piping hot, and were crisp on the outside and soft and fluffy on the inside; the perfect combination with the sauces. We did get a little carried away and sort of over ordered, but we finished everything! πŸ˜‚

It’s Hot.com, but they don’t own the domain name, which is weird but anyways...
Hot.Com French Fries
They sell different type of drink concoctions and french fries combinations (almost 30 different versions of fries for only HK$33)

French fries with dumplings (siu mai), topped with cheese and honey mustard, came pipping hot in a froyo cup.

Fried Squid, Stinky Tofu and Fried Yong Tau Foo

Fried Squid, Stinky Tofu and Fried Yong Tau Foo
We came across this store and C and K were besotted with it. 😍

K was besotted with the fried squid, which was nicely salted and crispy.

And C was besotted with the fried yong tau foo, which was alright.

Since we were there, we also tried the stinky tofu. It smelled more than it tasted fermented. I was surprised that other than the smell, the taste was the same as your regular fried tofu.

 

Gong Cha

 To finish off the night, how could I resist some Gong Cha? 😍😍

By the time we were done with our 'meal', it had started to slightly drizzle so on the way back to the hotel (and after some light shopping), I managed to buy and umbrella for just HK$30 and somehow managed to convince C to buy one too!
