& saw the fa yuen street market 花园街街市.
the dry goods stalls & stalls selling braised duck, chicken, pigeon, roast meats & char siew were at one end.
we were quite attracted to the char siew (but later poor experiences made me decide never to take char siew & siew yoke in hong kong) & also the braised meats, but we were mindful that we were going for late dinner afterwards & should not overload ourselves & spoiled the appetite.
a friend wanted to buy pork & liver sausage. there were many stalls selling that, but he did not know the prices nor had confidence in the stalls.
& in the middle there were the wet market stalls selling live fish & seafood (top photo & above).
on 12.1.2016, we were around looking for dessert shops.
hoe kee dessert 浩记甜品馆 was closed 2 days in the row.
we were not interested in the guilingao龟苓膏like hoitintong 海天堂 etc. we saw that fa yuen street market 花园街街市 had levels 2 & 2 cooked food stalls. thinking they were like singapore hawker/food centres, we happily went up.
but actually their cooked food centre houses daipaitongs 大排档. there were like 6 daipaitongs 大排档 selling the zi char dishes, not a bad idea, just that we were wanting desserts.
