    The bustling region of Mongkok is one of the busiest and highly populated district in Hong Kong. Most tourists would have been to Tung Choi Street aka Ladies Street, Fa Yuen Street aka Sneakers Street and the many streets with quirky name such as Bird Street, Sai Yong Choi Street, etc.

    While street snack is widely available throughout Mongkok, there is one particular Macau Portuguese food stall in the cooked food market that ignites our interest.
    The food stall, nestled inside a small food court, is well-known for its curry farmer’s bun (咖喱農夫包) that comes with a myriad of fillings such as beef brisket, soft shell crab, pork chop, pork’s neck, chicken fillet, etc.
    It is also a “cheap eats” gem. For only HKD 48, we got a wholesome set that consists of a Pork’s Neck Curry Farmer’s Bun, tomato soup and a tall glass of ice cold coffee. And the set is meant to be shared among two person! Not too bad for RM 20 right?
    The bun was really nice, with crunchy crumbs and pillow-y soft interior. The vendor gave us a pair of disposable glove because the best way to enjoy the meal is to use our hands to tear the bun apart and dip them into the curry gravy. How thoughtful!

    The pork neck was extremely tender and delicate in texture; and we really enjoyed the thick, fragrant curry gravy.
    Their signature iced coffee is a thick and chilly delight, absolutely gorgeous!

    If you ever found yourself wandering around Mongkok, go to Mongkok Complex (Mongkok MRT exit C3) and look for 澳門翠苑茶餐廳 (direct translation: Macau Tsui Yuen Cafe).
