1. FEI JIE
LOCAL STREET FOOD
Stick To It - Although there is always a line at Fei Jie, it moves quite quickly so you won’t need to wait long for a taste of these scrumptious skewers. Pork gizzards and intestines are the most popular choices among Hong Kong locals, but for those with slightly less adventurous palates, we recommend the sausage and octopus.
