starving student soon to be in Hong Kong

kairo | Jul 24, 2008 02:02 PM

Hello,
I'm a student from San Francisco, and i'm moving to Hong Kong at the end of August, for 9 months. The thing i'm most excited about is the food. What i'm trying to do is compile a list of good cheap-eats all over Hong Kong. I believe i'll be living in Kowloon-Tong (at CityU), but i figure i'll make it around the whole area in those 9 months. I've noticed that many of the recommended places on this list are a bit out of my price range, save for some noodle shop recommendations. I'm living off loans while i'm there, so i can't do any HK$100 meals, as i'll be eating out pretty much every meal of the day. I'm not looking for american food either... i don't eat it here, so i surely won't be craving it there.
If anyone would be willing to give me some tips, they would be much appreciated. Also, if there are any other good english online sources, that would be great too!

Big Thanks in advance,
john.t
