Not much to look at, this joint is hugely popular among locals. The reason? Mean bowls of noodle soup that cost around $50 as well as an extensive menu of other local dishes. We recommend the shark fin soup to start, followed by noodles with pork dumplings. If you’re still hungry after all that, there’s also a good range of Cantonese desserts to sample.
Until recently, Tai Kok Tsui was considered something of a dead zone. Stranded in west Kowloon without an MTR station, the neighbourhood was perceived as an industrial area, like the Kwun Tong of old, with little appeal for visitors. Not any more, though. TKT is buzzing. No MTR means more affordable rent and that’s allowed a number of exciting small restaurants to establish themselves. Cantonese, Japanese omakase, Mediterranean cuisine – you can get just about anything in the neighbourhood these days. Not sure where to start?
