Guide to 8 Michelin-Starred Street Food in Hong Kong!

What's in your mind when you hear about Hong Kong? For me, I instantly think about a hustle and bustle city with a lot of great food and culture. If we are talking about food, I bet most of you have heard about the Michelin starred restaurant, as that means that the restaurant serves great food and it's totally worth to visit. Thus, I make the mini-guide for you who want to try the Michelin starred street food in Hong Kong. (because what's better than cheap and delicious food?)

I know that it is not related, but did you know that McDonalds Hong Kong had those sweet potato flavored ice cream? It's not my cup of tea as I don't really like the idea of sweet potato flavored ice cream, but the color was pretty and it's definitely an instagram material! (lol!)

Let's get started with the guide, shall we?

1. Kung Wo Tofu (公和荳品廠)
Fried Tofu and Fish Cakes

Kung Wo Tofu is basically a humble restaurant that sells various tofu-based food such as fried tofu, tofu pudding, soy milk, etc. I tried their fried tofu combo which comes with super good fried fish cakes and I love the texture of their fried tofu, perfectly crispy on the outside and soft in inside.

How Much?
HKD 10-20 per person

Where to Find?
118 Pei Ho Street, Sham Shui Po

Soy Milk
Fried Tofu

2. Mammy Pancake (媽咪雞蛋仔)

Egg Waffle is a popular Hong Kong street food snack and apparently this one serves one of the best egg waffle in town. I tried the green tea with red bean one and it tasted pretty decent with good texture. I did comeback here again during my trip to try the cheese puff one and I prefer the cheese puff rather than the green tea due to its perfect crispness. Oh and prepare to queue as the place was always crowded with people.

How Much?
HKD 20-30

Where to Find?
8-12 Carnarvon Road, Tsim Sha Tsui

3. Kee Tsui (奇趣餅家)
Kee Tsui Cookies

Kee Tsui is a bakery that sells various kind of cookies, bread and it's located at the famous "Fa Yuen Street / Sneaker Street". I tried one of their creation which looks like cookies and I have to say that this one was one of the best cookies that I've ever tried so far, it had crispy texture and a tad bit of sweetness, not to mention that the size was super huge!

How Much?
HKD 5-10

Where to Find?
135 Fa Yuen Street, Mong Kok

4. Three Potatoes (叁薯)
Shredded Hash Brown with Sour Cream

Three Potatoes is a humble stall that sells various potato-based snack. I honestly had so much expectation on the shredded hash brown with sour cream but this turned out to be just okay. It's a little bit bland for me and I bet it will taste better with cheese sauce. Oh but the baked potato with cheese tasted pretty delicious!

How Much?
HKD 35-40

Where to Find?
Shop 5, 6/F, 30-32A Nullah Road, Mong Kok

5.  Block 18 Doggie’s Noodle (十八座 狗仔粉)

Honestly, I kind of forget the name of the dish, but I did try the 3 best seller food here. (according to the auntie) All of them tasted pretty delicious with springy noodle and flavorful broth, but it didn't impress me that much..

How Much?
HKD 30

Where to Find?
27A Ning Po Street, Jordan 佐敦寧波街27A號G/F

6. Hop Yik Tai (合益泰小食)

Hop Yik Tai sells the so-called cheung fun which is basically a slippery rice roll served with sweet sauce and peanut sauce. It tasted pretty decent and I do prefer the peanut sauce rather than sweet one!

How Much?
HKD 10

Where to Find?
121 Kweilin St, Sham Shui Po

7.  Kwan Kee Store (坤記糕品)
Fried Red Bean Balls

Kwan Kee Store sells various Chinese pastries and cake, I tried the fried red bean balls and it tasted freaking good although it was oily. Oh, I'm craving for these like seriously!

How Much?
HKD 10

Where to Find?
115-117 Fuk Wa Street, Sham Shui Po

8. Fat Boy (第三代肥仔)

Fat Boy sells various kind of skewered innards and octopus, I honestly didn't try this one because I'm not a big fan of innards and octopus. But according to my friend, this one tasted pretty okay and the mustard has a super strong flavor.

Bonus Features
Oh, and I would like to share another one although it's not Michellin-starred, but honestly who cares about the award when they serve super delicious gooey cheese noodles with pork cheek? (yes, pork cheek!). The restaurant name is Sun Kee Cheese Noodle and it's located at Champagne Court, Kimberley Rd, Tsim Sha Tsui, Hong Kong.

Imagine having a bowl of warm cheesy noodle with grilled pork cheek on top of it, this one was seriously a bomb and I don't mind having this as my daily meal. (I'm serious!) It costs around HKD 60 per bowl and it's definitely worth it!

I think that's all that I could share about some of my culinary journey during my last trip to Hong Kong. I have to admit that the city might seem a little bit stressful because the crowd especially on weekend, but that doesn't matter when you can have good food, right? April has been a busy month for me because I traveled to a lot of place and I definitely had a great time despite the tiredness! :)

Last but not least, if you have any queries, don't hesitate to drop me a message and I'll be happy to help! :)
