Fu Tung Chinese Market – Tung Chung, Hong Kong


To be honest, if I wasn’t exhibiting at the Asia Expo in HK, I wouldn’t know this place exist. And if I wasn’t staying at Marriot beside the exhibition venue, I wouldn’t have taken the free shuttle to this place also! Tung Chung is like the last town in the New Territories of Hong Kong before reaching the airport. Hence it’s a town far away from the city, although linked by the metro and buses. However, this little town has everything and the mall there is where all the factory outlets are located. Shoppers will go crazy but not for me… I only look for food haha…

So on the first nights, I was looking for something local with my friend and we came across a market… Not a very wet market if you know what I mean but the fact is, it is airconditioned! (Perfect for me! ;P) And the food there looks so good that we decided to try. See the pics and descriptions below:

Rather clean for a market... on the right is the stall selling Cheong fun, curry fishballs, braised wings, etc. Quite good also.

串王 @ Yuen Long, NT,HK


This is another little shop I’ve discovered in Yuen Long… When it’s peak hour, you will see a crowd there patiently waiting for the lady to get their orders ready. Surprisingly, only 1 person is manning the store and she alone can manage so many BBQ pits! So I decided I should try what’s the big hoo ha is all about…

Business is damn good...
Check out the selection of meats and veg for BBQ... Yummmms!
My samples... haha... Ta bao back to try them... The aroma is out of this world!

Rating: 5/5

Taste: The difference between the BBQ here and China is that this one has a lot of different flavours. Each meat is seasoned differently unlike the BBQs in China, all same tasste and using the same seasoning from Xinjiang. In general, all meats are pretty tasty… Talking about this makes me salivate only… damn…

Portion: Thick and juicy… good size.

Price: The whole batch I ordered is about HKD$70 which is around SGD$12.

RTE: YES!

Location: Along the same street as the fishball place. Just opposite only. If can’t find, follow the aroma! 🙂
