Street Food at Night in Mong Kok, Hong Kong
During our first night in Hong Kong, we decided to grab some quick bites first, and my friend Irsyad suggested that we visit Mong Kok for some street food. From Causeway Bay, we took the MTR to Mong Kok and exited in C4. It was lucky of us that upon reaching the surface there was already this store that sells various street food, and I will be sharing more about it here in this blog post.
As mentioned, this street food store (which name I couldn't decipher) is just located near the C4 entrance/exit of Mong Kok Station. Hence, you won't really have a hard time finding this place; however, in case you do, this store is just along the Argyle Street and in front of Langham Place.
Okay, let me also share with you this screenshot of Google Maps. The street food store I'm blogging about is the one at the corner near the Mong Kong station. Check this photo out:
Trust me, you will easily spot it. Anyway, we did a quick browse of the items we can find there, and most of them were new to my eyes. This got me pretty excited to try some!
Most of these items are at 15HKD per stick which is approximately P91 each. Unfortunately, we don't know how these things are called, so we just pointed at the items we found interesting.
The first item we found interesting was this kikiam-looking street food. Judging by its taste, it seemed liked made out of laman-loob. In fact, it resembled the taste of an isaw. Also, just like here in our country, you can find about 3 to 5 sauces which you may put on your order.
The next thing we had was the octopus on a stick, and it was so awesome! I just love how tasty and fresh it was. I would not forget about this because we put on "mustard sauce" on it, and since we loved how the overall taste seemed, we added more of the sauce. However, it turned out that the sauce was not mustard but rather yellow wasabi -- we ended up really teary both from laughing and the wasabi.
As part of their seafood collection, they also have here the waffles and eggettes. We didn't try them anymore because we wanted to get some "real food".
Anyway, here's a photo of me with my good friend Roan eating the octopus with the "mustard sauce".
