chili crab on temple street

on the kowloon side of hong kong there is a night time market at temple street. BF had recommended heading over to kowloon to visit one of the night time markets...so i hopped on the subway (which is really easy to figure out btw) at the causeway bay station....transferred at central...and then exited the subway at jordan station. first thing i noticed right away is that this side is grittier than the areas i've been to on the island. it also appears quite a bit less crowded. before walking through some of the street stalls, i decided to grab something to eat at one of the food places that provided tons of outdoor seating. i wanted to eat before it got too crowded.

after walking around the food places within a 2-3 block radius...i had pretty much decided on temple spice crabs as it was the most hopping and had a mix of foreigners and non-foreigners.



alas, after trying to get an older female server to help me (she wasn't very helpful...and would end up helping groups of 2+ to sit....i figured this out after the second time)....i decided to change tactics. so after a moment of watching some of the other servers...i honed in on a young man and asked him very softly if he could help me. i smiled a lot.....and well, what do you know?

i got a table, menu, and my order done real quick.

wow. who says the foodiehunter can't learn? especially when the foodiehunter is very hungry and thinks another server is being really stupid. i guess like po in kung fu panda (which i saw on the plane)....i suppose i had to find the right motivation to figure something out.

Even though I'm not remotely hungry this morning (go figure), that picture is enough to convince me to go to Hong Kong.
