The specialties at this tiny roadside shack are the red bean and green bean soups – all made according to the traditional recipe. The sticky, glutinous rice balls rolled in sugar and sesame are another delicious highlight. Despite its name, Leaf Dessert also offers a small selection of noodles. $50.
Sing Heung Yuen
Managed by the second generation owner Irene, this bustling streetside stall continues to draw in the crowds (as well as Hong Kong celebrities) with its famous tomato broth noodles. Served with a side of tender beef, sausage and eggs or a thick slice of spam, the bowl of noodles isn’t anything particularly fancy but it’s one of the cheapest and most comforting meals you can get in the area. Be sure to also try the crispy, toasted buns drizzled with condensed milk and the velvety smooth milk tea. $80.
Twenty-four-hour service is a beautiful thing, which is why So Kee makes it into this list. The eatery prides itself on its pork chop – a fluffy slab that can be enjoyed over a bowl of instant noodles or as a sandwich filling. $50.
