The End of an Era…

YAU MA TEI, Hong Kong, SAR, China – Today is a sad day for exchanged students everywhere in Hong Kong. There once was a great establishment named Mr. Wongs that I along with my fellow exchanged students would frequent before a night out clubbing. This restaurant offered sub-par food and unlimited beer for 50 HKD (approximately $6.25 USD). As of last saturday, Mr. Wongs was raided by the Hong Kong police and his liquor license was revoked.

*Moment of Silence*

I’ll be honest, I clearly didn’t go here for the food as it tasted horrible, but it was nice place to drink before going to clubs and if I drank here I wouldn’t have to buy a drink at a club and ultimately get ripped off while all of the girls in our group get free drinks, every week. Lets be real, I am definitely not about to go back there just for the food. So I am issuing a challenge to my few readers out there – does anyone know of a place in Hong Kong that offers unlimited beer and sub par food to replace Mr. Wongs? If you know any place you will be a hero to exchanged students all over Hong Kong.


Mr. Wong’s

MR. WONG’S, YAU MEI TAI, Hong Kong, SAR, China – Mr. Wongs, located a short walk from exit A2 of the Yau Mei Tai MTR has become a favorite place for out group to dine at. We have decided to frequent this less than glamorous establishment on Thursdays before making our way to LKF. The reason is it is cheap. For $50 HKD (approximately $6.25 USD) we get a plentiful helping of food. In fact, it is all you can eat and drink (beer included) with no time limit. Now I will be honest this place looks like a sketchy shack, but Mr. Wong caters toward international students. The food is sub-par to average at best and the menus is always the same. He serves Pearl River Delta Beer from China and if he likes your group he will occasionally throw in a bottle of spirits (either vodka or whiskey). However, for the price and the ability to have a fun meal with a friend, you can’t beat it.
