Cantonese consider snake to be very healthy food. Especially in the fall and winter, we all will have a bowl of snake soup to warm us up. It is also very tasty. Ser Wong Fun is a eatery that have been around a very long time. They serve very traditional and simply Chinese food. Their quality have remained the same... More

You really need to go with a cantonese speaker, because they speak no english! We came across it walking up Connaught Street. They do have a menu card with english subtitles! We also managed to order cans of beer (not on the menu card) with our meal - sign language!. We didn't go for snake items in which they evidently... More

It's simple. Local staples made just like the old days. Bit pricey now, but you won't get the same taste anywhere else. Real Hong Kong eats.

The decor is nothing special. The staff aren't particularly nice. But you are here for the food. It is very famous for its snake broth which is great for the winter time, and its very authentic and well made lap cheong, or as some may know Chinese sausage rice. Unlike many of the modern restaurants and places that use processed,... More

The snake meat broth served in a medium size bowl was yummy good...cooked in special herb and orange peel which tastes like chicken... More

Gotta try their speciality snake broth. Quite an experience! Tastes like chicken! Will be a good check off your bucket list for those who are more adventurous with food. They do it really well!

Staying in Central

Neighborhood Profile
When people think of Hong Kong, most imagine movies with famous skyscrapers dominating the skyline. The area widely known as Central is the major financial hub and entertainment district, which truly lives up to the saying, “work hard, play hard.” Bars stay open late into the night and there just happens to be a street party every weekend. Although everything seems to be operating at lightning speed, Central is full of quiet, hidden gems. Nestled between office towers are wet markets and some of the city’s oldest restaurants dating back to the 1960s. Feeling a bit overwhelmed? Retreat from the crowds by exploring beautifully restored historical buildings and even a green oasis of botanical gardens.
