You can definitely experience the Hong Kong’s unique culture by starting your journey at the Bruin Plaza for Hong Kong style snacks and specialty drinks and enjoy everything HKSS is going to prepare for you!
At the HKSS Night Market there willl be traditional and famous Hong Kong street foods including curry fish balls, dim sum, pot stickers, boba drinks, milk tea, red bean soup, sweet sago soup with taro, egg waffle, and marinated chicken wings and eggs. Street food is an important part of Hong Kong culture with both traditional and foreign influences. The food served are the most common local street food found in Hong Kong. They are fast, hot, and tasty. People will just past by a street food stand grab a skewer of fishball and dim sum at any time.
In addition to the street food and beverages, there will also be a fortune telling stall in the Night Market which will predict one’s future and analyze one’s characteristics and personalities with reference to the year of birth.
