I have been reading and taking notes of all the great tips on the HK threads, but something I haven't found yet is a discussion of authentic, culturally interesting and cheap HK eats.
This has nothing to do with money - I'm lucky enough to be able to afford to eat wherever I like - and I love fine dining as well, but my favourite travelling food experiences are invariably some tiny hole in the wall that serves some special local morsel (especially anything BBQed!) that the guide books don't know about.
Think jerk chicken on Boston Beach in Jamaica, or smoky goat meat tacos out of a cauldron in Guadalahara, or fresh snapper BBQed over coconut shells on Geger beach in Bali, or a mountain of BBQed shellfish in garlic sauce (for $8!) on Shanghai's Shouling Road... All these delights cost under $10 somewhere off the beaten track, and apart from being delicious give you a local experience and a glimpse into the kitchen too.
Anything like this in HK?? I appreciate your advice!
