After heading to Hong Kong X number of times, I wanted to try out some local street delicacies that could excite my taste buds once again.
It was the right choice with Keung Kee 強記.
The no-frills eatery is about a 10-15 minutes’ walk from Causeway Bay MTR station, a short distance from the famous Joy Hing Roasted Meat 再興燒臘飯店.
Even if you were to walk past the famed eatery frequented by celebrities such as Hacken Lee, you might not pay special attention as it was blended in with the surroundings, a hole-in-the-wall with a couple of small tables and plastic chairs.
Except that it had an uncle Wu frying fragrant glutinous rice right outside, with a prominent red Michelin sign pasted at the back. The shop was once recommended in the Hong Kong Michelin “Street Food” guide.
Established since 1951, Keung Kee serves up simple “breakfast” fare of Mixed Glutinous Rice
