The Gnocchi are amazing! Great sauce and the other dishes are really good.
Try the Apple Strudel for dessert.

Yummy gnocchi with chorizo, and duck with mash and veges. Chef was happy to make gnocchi vegetarian. Great little find.

I googled "budget restaurants in Hong kong" and found this restaurant. Among the 10 in the list, this was the only one that offered western/ Italian food. All the rest were Chinese cuisine.
I immediately made a reservation and took my wife there.

When we got there, it was exactly what I expected, having eaten in Hong Kong's other open food markets before. The place was busy with a lot of foreigners eating, which was a good sign.

We shared a Tuna salad nicoise. Excellent, reasonable value and serving at HKD 98

For the main, we ordered rack of lamb and their famous roast suckling pig with mashed potatoes

The suckling pig was something else. The crackling skin and the meat just falling off the bones. Really tender and tasty ! The mashed potatoes had spring onions, which was very unique.
The quality of the lamb was reasonably good. CAnt really expect much for HKD 138. The lamb serving was very generous.

Service was quick, polite, attentive. Just typical Hong kong efficient service.

Just a unique experience ! Must try !

We had some problems finding this restaurant since it is located in a "hidden" food court on the second floor. Accessing it through the fire escape back door was an experience by itself. :)

The service was very quick, polite and good and the food tasted good and was well decorated.

The setting was interesting but not exactly cosy with the fluorescent roof lights. It was fun to dine side by side with happy and curious locals. One interesting thing was that you are allowed to bring your own wine etc since this is a public food court.

The prices was little bit to high based on the whole experience. If the setting would have been a little bit more pleasant it might have justified the price of a main dish just under 200 HKD and a starter just under 100 HKD.

If you want to experience the real Hong Kong but don't like Chinese food then this place is the best. You sit in an open food market, lots of noise and hubbub, and in the corner is a small (or used to be small but getting more popular) Italian/French kitchen. The food is like the best home cooked food you'll have; fresh gnocci, tender lamb...but the star of the show is the suckling pig. Without a doubt you must have this. It's my favourite in HK and ive tried a fair few!

My only grumble is sometimes they book too many people in and the service can be slow. But this is balanced out as its BYOB and so you can just watch life go by, sipping your wine and not being ripped off my overpriced wine charges as is common in HK.

Have been here as a couple and with friends, prefer with big group as bit noisy. The toilets are public to the whole food market and pretty gross, so bring paper and hand sanitiser!
