Discovering Michelin Street Food through Tsim Sha Tsui, Hong Kong

Tsim Sha Tsui is a busy district in Hong-Kong, known for its shopping scene and the magnificient view of the Hong Kong Harbour. While our plan was to have a stroll and end up by the Victoria Harbour and eventually have dinner somewhere around. Our dinner turned up to be lovely streetfood before even making it to the harbour! Sharing the two spots here, ideal for travellers short on time in Hong Kong or just passing by Tsim Sha Shui and want a quick fix.

Cheung Hing Kee Shanghai Pan Fried Buns

The Shanghai Pan Fried Buns, also known as ‘Sheng Jian Bao, are signature dumplings; they are soup dumplings stuffed with a pork filling with a pan-fried bottom. What attracted us to the small entry was the michelin starred tag and a quick google check later, we confirmed they are Michelin rated 2016!

This stuff is delicious! From the crispy bottom to the tasty filling, it is a literal explosion in your mouth. Now there is a traditional way to eat soup dumplings but in the spirit of on the go eating, be prepared for it to get messy. You have been warned, it is hot and it squirts!

Owl’s Choux

This attractive corner shop, from which emanates a delightful whiff of pastry and sugar, sells ice-cream stuffed choux pastries. They have signature items such as red velvet choux pastries, which come topped with heavenly pieces of red velvet cakes. It is mesmerising to sit at the counter, while waiting for your order and watching the bakers at work. The desserts are hand-crafted and baked on site, which makes it difficult to just walk by and not indulge.

Hi, I am Shev. By profession, I am an analyst. Over the years, I have wandered around the globe and have gathered a lifetime of memories but above all, I realised most of my travel plans revolved around food and coffee! My journals and iPhone notes are filled with writings about restaurants, coffee shops and local cuisines I have discovered. Food is a lifelong affair for me, I love describing the scenes when I visit a restaurant or if i encounter a new cuisine, I get really curious and want to find out about the history around it.
