Stories From The Road

A Delicacy…

TEMPLE STREET NIGHT MARKET, MONG KOK, Hong Kong, SAR, China – The first week of classes are over, so its time to experience true Hong Kong culture, by touring around with a local. Our first stop is the Temple Street Market. As its name would suggest, the night market comes out at night. The streets are lined with local restaurants selling unique Hong Kong style food and hawking various goods. Some unique gifts can be found here such as a first edition little red book, once owned by Mao Zedong’s followers.

However, aside from the hawkers, our destination was a small restaurant that sells snake soup, a delicacy in Hong Kong. It is also only available during the winter. At first thought this dish may sound disgusting, however, it was delicious. It taste like chicken.
