Worthwhile visiting

Simce located in the middle of night market, it's very convenient to stop by and grab couple of dishes. One of my favorite is deep fried shrimp with garlic and soya sauce. It goes very well with chinese largers - Tsingdao or Haizu. The reason why I deducted 1 star is dishes are bit pricy so the... read more

Seafood was great, fresh and super yummy with Tsingtao Beer. Just don't miss it when you come to Jordan, Hong Kong.

Everything here is so good! Ordered steamed fish, clams, veggie, squid, braised goose and some beer! The bill came out to be only 500 hk dollars. Seafood is very fresh. Service is the best among eateries of this range, everyone smiled at you.. It felt so different from other rude and cold staff cha chan tings.

Escaping the chaos of Temple St Market, went here as I just had to try chicken fried rice from the area. Certainly wasn't disappointed and had the best fried squid yet, service with a smile (the plastic bowls, tables, seats and chopsticks are all just part of the experience) and prices were reasonable.

if you are looking for 5 star dining you are definitely in the wrong place. It is street food, little stools, a bit unkempt, but you are here for the food and a cold beer to wash it down with. Ordered the squid with salt and pepper and seafood fried noodles. Noodles were great, lots of prawns, squid, mussels and... More

Their seafood are very fresh, but if you expect Mediteranian or Western style cooking..., u r at the wrong place. Some Chinese dishes may be hot or spicy than u can imagine. You have to tell them correctly how you want them to cook your seafood (for example, steam or deep fry or stir fry.) They have well chilled beer... More

Neighborhood Profile
Jordan / Yau Ma Tei
The Jordan and Yau Ma Tei neighborhood is where you will find some of the more authentic areas of Hong Kong. Not as glamorous or busy as its neighbors Mong Kok to the north or Tsim Sha Tsui to the south, Yau Ma Tei is often mistakenly overlooked by visitors on their trips to Hong Kong. Exploring parts of this area makes you feel like you’ve been transported back in time. A large part of the neighborhood draws from the rich history of Temple Street, stretching from Jordan to Yau Ma Tei, where a mix of dai pai dongs (outdoor restaurants), market stalls, fortune tellers and old karaoke bars bring out the history and culture of the area. The neighborhood is a showcase of diversity – different ethnicities, cultures, and a mix of old and new.
