I'm just a simple girl. My dream was to eat curry fish balls from road side stall in Hong Kong. As a bonus, I had Yvonne with me while I fulfilled my dream.
Apparently, the stall that we went is one of the best curry fish ball stall in Kowloon. The stall name is called Kai Kei, located in Mongkok at the junction of Dundas Street and Sai Yeung Choi Street. "Sai Yeung Choi" sounds damn weird to me. It's actually name of this vegetable....
It's not a very popular vegetable though....
Anyway, back to the Kai Kei curry fish balls. Other than curry fish balls, they also sell different kinds of street snacks.
There's also the infamous chao tau fu (smelly tofu)...
The smell was super strong and it's not pleasant at all. It smells like drainage that got stucked after monsoon rain. I really don't know how people love it so much. It's worse than durian aitelyu...
Thinking of the curry fish balls, I am missing it already. The fish balls are chewy and and the curry taste absorbs into it makes it so delicious and irresistible. It is not like those fish balls which has that plastic texture.
We had one stick each at first. Later we went back and ordered a bowl. FTW!!!
While you're suffering with the spiciness, there's a Gong Cha stall two doors away.
Although this stall is in Mong Kok, the nearest MTR station is actually Yau Ma Tei.
Get the A2 exit, turn to your left and then to your right. Dundas St is about 400m away (probably less). Turn right into Dundas St. and Sai Yeung Choi St. is about 100m away only. Very easy... and very near. If we bimbos can get to the place without any sweat, you can too.
As a bonus, we found a stall right outside the MTR exit A2 which sells those 小吃.
We ordered some siew mai and this tofu thing, which I don't know what it is called. We saw the photo on the wall, so we just pointed at the lady and tell them we want a plate. Surprisingly, it's super good. It's tofu with a layer of fish cake on top with black sesame oil sauce. What I find really funny is... the tofu in Hong Kong taste a bit different from ours. Normally tofu doesn't have any taste at all. But HK tofu taste a bit salty-sweet.
Oh... I really miss Hong Kong snacks now. I just can't get enough of it. As a result... gained 5kg. Getting fat, but happy!
