We decided to check out Temple Street Night Market but realized that most of the stalls were only starting to set up when we arrive around 5pm. Hence, we decided to head to Mido Cafe for a light dinner first. The old auntie seating behind the counter gestured us to head to the upper floor. On the upper floor, the... More

This place comes right out of a movie. Loved the setting. The staff is not the most friendly but we enjoyed the food nonetheless. Don't ask to go to the toilet if you're a women and like western toilets ;-)

Located at a corner off the main road, within 8mins walking distance off Yau Ma Tei station, better to turn on your goggle map and find the location. Must order - baked spare ribs rice, crispy shrimp toast. Pricing, quite expensive Food taste, excellent Location, easy to find (Above are my personal preference)

We go there sometimes because we stay hotel nearby. The food is so good and cheap. The place is so retro.

When I say vintage I really mean it with the dust smell and all....this place needs a bit of cleaning, the food was ok nothing special but I see lots of people recommending this place maybe the owners should take this opportunity to clean and refurbish a wee bit. it is also a bit pricey (380HKD for a red bean...

I had the French toast which was ok nothing great. Good thing was they brought you knives and forks without asking. I DO NOT DO chopsticks. Don't get the young girl to serve you as she is useless as can't take a proper order. The coffee / tea combo was ok. Decor could do with a touch up. Be careful... More

Fantastic restaurant, off the beaten track, great food not touristy, well worth taking the time to visit for a meal. Great decor from the 1950's.

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.
