Hong Kong Street Snack Stalls


Hong Kong street snack stalls are peppered throughout the city’s densest districts, serving office workers, hungry shoppers, teenagers and tourists. Each stall has its own specialty. In Causeway Bay, many of them are busy all day ladling out their signature siu mai and curry fishballs deftly into styrofoam cups, or filling cast-iron griddles with batter for delicious hot egglettes. If you want bowls of tripe mixed with eggplant and radish, all drenched in fragrant sauce, head to Tung Lo Wan Road and Jaffe Road. Or try out Haven Street where the egglettes come with all sorts of different fillings. The famous stall on the corner of Russell and Percival Street works like a well-oiled machine serving the throngs of customers lining up. But the competition is tougher over on the corner of Jaffe Road and Cannon Street, where one stall will lure in customers with shouts of “Buy one, get one free!” while another stall, just two doors down, will try to outdo the first one’s offer with shouts of “Buy three get two free!”. The noise of both trying to win the lucrative rush hour crowd in the evening can be deafening.
