at $38 for rice, soup and a choice of three dishes (or $35 for two choices, and even less for takeaway), this hole-in-the-wall eatery is one of the cheapest i've come across on hong kong island. they don't stint on their helpings either - i couldn't decide on the my third choice, and the lady gave me half of each.
the big bowl of soup was hearty and delicious, packed with lots of ingredients. while the dishes looked visually unappealing (i went after 2 pm today and they'd probably been heated up continuously for a long time), they were tasty albeit a little greasy. i was stuffed for hours after this meal.
[update 30.8.15: i peeked in around 7.30 pm yesterday and even the green vegetables had turned a dull shade of yellow. i'd definitely recommend going earlier in the day!]
if you're looking for a quiet respite, this may not be the place for you, as it's frequented by regulars who chat away loudly with staff. i took it as an opportunity to practise my cantonese listening and to immerse myself in a slice of local life.
Cons: dishes visually unappealing later in day, on the greasy side, can be noisy
