Street food. 23 on the list. That includes Butchers Club popular for their Double Happiness Burgers and Duck Fat Fries and ‘Fat Boy’ 第三代肥仔小食店 selling pig intestines on sticks. Now with the Michelin-honours.

If you are curious, dim sum makers Tim Ho Wan has retained their one-star in 2 of their branches, but lost from the Tai Kok Tsui Olympian City outlet.
