Tin Hau Hong Kong

A friend of mine told me to try out a “dai pai dong” open-air food stall located in tin hau. I have always walked by that place but never really went inside. What you see is lots of garage and auto shops, with an exception of a few grocery stores and a lot of neat little restaurants. The street is definitely not crowded like that of Mongkok or Causeway Bay. That alone was an open invitation for me to slow down my walk to enjoy the authentic streets of Hong Kong. The birds who seek refuge in roofs and strange places between building, the walls, and a taste of the famous street food.

Dai pai dong is a type of open-air food stall once very popular in Hong Kong. The government registration name in Hong Kong is “cooked-food stalls”, but dai pai dong literally means “restaurant with a big license plate”, referring to its size of license which is bigger than other licensed street vendors.


A place that many has gain a name in Hong Kong is the shun hing dai pai dong, located in tin hau. I had a taste of their signature egg and bbq pork rice and cart noodle(guess what toppings I had?) Don’t scroll down for the answers yet!  滑蛋叉燒飯 & 車仔撈麵. Thank you again for bringing me here!
