Tai On Building in Sai Wan Ho
View this post on Instagram
It’s impossible not to mention Tai On Building when talking about local street food and late-night bites. While this 1960s building seems inconspicuous on the outside, you’ll be dazzled by the variety of street food on offer as you make your way through the arcades on the ground floor. From eggettes to the more adventurous beef offal, Tai On Building is not to be missed when you want a taste of Hong Kong while on a budget
What’s hot: The queues at Hainan Chicken Specialist aren’t for nothing. Expect tender, boneless chicken along with some fragrant oil rice, homemade sauces, and a bowl of winter melon soup – all for only around $38. I Miss You’s purple sweet potato-flavoured Taiwanese pancakes (around $30) and their range of nearly 30 toppings are also popular in the building. Can’t get enough of Taiwanese cuisine? Try the sweet and chewy taro balls (around $32/bowl) and other desserts at Come On.
