Cheap take-away

4 Posted on 10 / 22 / 2014

They have lunch take-away specials for only $25HK, which include soup, rice, and one entree. I tried the eggplant with bean curd, which was nothing special, but it was a good sized portion with lots of different vegetables. Worth stopping by if you are around HKU.

Pros: good value

Walked past this a few times before we spotted the sign! Got a selection of things to take away, sticky mushroom skewers, mock chicken and some over-greasy spring rolls. The mushrooms were delicious and the mock chicken was pretty good, nice to get some protein.
Some of it was labelled in English but it was mostly point and hope for the best!
Chinese food, all vegetarian, fairly inexpensive.
Great option if you are in the locale.

Pros: Choice, Take Away
Cons: Greasy

Food for the locals - retro.

No frills.

Friendly folk - not so used to foreigners but very welcoming.

Simple English menu.

Hong Kong's most reasonably priced dim-sum.

Great for breakfast.

I have been coming here for many years.

In the same street you can find great incense - real agarwood & lumps of sandalwood.

Fantastic restaurant. For 3 of us it cost under 200HKD which is more than I have paid for one person in other places. Does a range of Chinese vegetarian meals, including many fake meat dishes, and tofu and vegetable dishes. The menu comes in English and Cantonese.

Pros: good value, tasty food
