Hong Kong is an amazing place to live, but let’s just say expenses can run a little high… all the time. One way to cut down on costs is by dining out less. But let’s be real — that’s not going to happen, not with all the amazing places to eat in Hong Kong. Spending less on eating out, however, is a real solution to eating well without going broke. And nowhere helps you save money while still eating great meals quite like the city’s cooked food centres.
One of the last vestiges of old Hong Kong, cooked food centres feature fresh ingredients straight from the wet markets sold on the floors below them. Nowadays, these raucous food halls offer a variety of cuisines, from Italian plates at ABC Kitchen in Sheung Wan and Thai curries in Nam Long Shan to Chinese stir-fries. These aren’t just food courts for cheap eats, either. They cater to retirees, office workers and tourists alike. Check out these food stalls the next time you’re looking to eat on a budget without sacrificing quality. By Chloe Li
