Walking to the restaurants

Walking to the restaurants

On the Kowloon side of Hong Kong is Lei Yue Mun, a small fishing village that is home to many seafood restaurants.  One never gets the impression that one is in Hong Kong when visiting Lei Yue Mun for it has kept its small village ambiance within the urban environment that surrounds it.  And its not very far from Central on Hong Kong Island or Nathan Road on the Kowloon.  We’re talking less than 20 minutes by taxi.

And the sheer variety of “live” seafood is unmatched.  As you walk through Lei Yue Mun, you will pass numerous tanks of seafood.  You pick what you want to eat.  It’s carried to one of the restaurants.  You will then be asked how you want it cooked.  Simple as that.  No sweat.

The biggest problem is, “what to eat?” as the selection is huge.   So the best solution is to bring plenty of friends. And your appetite.

And by the way, the view from Lei Yue Mun can be breathtaking.
