If midnight snacks are your thing, the streets of Causeway Bay are rife with possibilities. There are many small restaurants that are open till way past midnight. My favourite along Jardine's Bazaar road, Shanghai Hong Kong Noodle purveyor of rice rolls par excellence, is open 24 hours.
If street food is your thing, stalls and vendors abound selling all sorts of tempting munchies. I was on my way back to the hotel from a midnight shopping spree when this hole in the wall caught my eye.
Fishballs in hot, spicy curry sauce are a snack staple and something that I can not pass up. I ordered a portion plus a stick of lobster balls, to take back to the hotel.
What a messy, dripping, finger-licking-good, gratifying midnight snack. My cravings for Hong Kong street food fulfilled, I felt like an impostor, lying on J Plus Hotel's soft, cool sheets. . . dreaming of fishballs in spicy curry sauce.
