Hong Kong is like a healthy salad where a variety of ingredients are mixed together to get the colourful result. We have people from all around the world and Jordan is the place known to be home to majority of the Nepalese. It is easy to get Nepalese food and snacks here. Let’s step into the Nepal of Hong Kong.
Start off with a morning walk to Yau Ma Tei Community Centre Rest Park. Health should always be our priority and what is better than some fresh year in a green park? In fact, get a glimpse of the retired life of Hong Kong’s elders, playing Chinese checkers or chess.
Next stop should be a freshly scrambled eggs and tea on 47-49 Parkes Street, in the Australian Dairy Company. It is famous for its food but you need patience as the place is always busy and have people lined up to taste their yummy food. I would say the wait is worth it.
After the delicious meal, it is time to get a little taste of the Nepalese culture at Zambala Arts on 187 Temple Street. It is a small store with products from Nepal, India and Tibet that has been opened since 2001. Once you enter the store the fragrance of incense will indulge you. If you are also into antiques, this is the store for you.
All the way to the Nepal of Hong Kong, it is time to stop at Manakamana. It is a Nepalese restaurant on 165 Temple Street. When it comes to Nepali food, never forget to order a plate of momos. They are the Nepalese version of dumplings. Then order a special Gorkhali Bhancha set. The food is mouth-watering and a Nepalese couple owns the restaurant itself and their service is amazing.
Post delicious lunch, walk towards 195 Temple Street. There is a store called Namo Buddha Arts. It has a variety of traditional outfits for both male and female but if that is still not enough then there is another place for more right next to it.
Been on Temple Street for so long and at last it is time to head towards the small path in between stalls of numerous store. The Temple Street Market is like a sister to the Ladies Market and both require a talent of bargain to get things for the cheapest price.
In Jordan and missed out on the spicy crab? That is not acceptable so that is the crucial place to stop by for a delicious meal. The popular alfresco “Dai Pai Dong’ style Temple Street Spicy Crab. The crab is showered with fried garlic and red chili when it comes to your table. With the crab, do not forget to get a beer or two because after the crab, it is known for the cheap beer.
