Good food and shopping bargains at night: Temple Street
The bustling Temple Street night market has so much to offer – from clothes and accessories to electronics and toys – that you can easily spend an entire evening there. It’s a fun place to visit and buy cheap souvenirs. Just remember to bargain hard! If you’re into fortune telling, a bunch of fortune tellers at the market can tell your destiny.
Hungry after all that walking? Don’t miss the Michelin-starred street food at Block 18 Doggie’s Noodle at 27A Ning Po Street, which is close to the night market (Jordan area). This little corner stall is famous for its rice flour noodles cooked with thick, gooey soup that is full of flavour from dried shrimp, mushrooms and fried pork fat. Remember to add some pickled radish, which is on the table, for a richer flavour. Go easy on the spicy pickled radish, though. It’s really hot! Another signature dish is roast duck leg which is braised till fork-tender and served with imitation shark fin soup full of shredded black fungus. Love it!
Tips: It takes less than 20 minutes to travel from Hong Kong University MTR Station to Yau Ma Tei Station. Be prepared to share tables with other diners at Doggie’s Noodle, and there’s no English menu available – simply point at what you want.
