I really like the Chinese kitchen but I find the dishes are always the same. If you are fed up with spring rolls, chicken with nuts and fried ice cream, then Mong Kok is the answer.
Try the dishes with vegetables: tofu, stuffed zucchinis, tofu rolls, chinese cabbage, vegetable stews, aubergines full of meat. There are also some “normal” dishes, like the grilled ravioli or the spaghetti with vegetables, but they are nothing special. Same goes for the cakes.
Mong Kok’s clients are really interesting: lots of Chinese and Asian people and especially if you go early, you’ll find hipsters and fashion/design students. Italians arrive later on during the evening.
A reservation is strongly recommended.
