Food street has changed :-(
The Hong Kong Tourist Association may think this is an improvement but for those of us who knew the old Food Street in Causeway Bay, it is a disappointment. It is unreal – created, touristy, hut-like structures with canopies – all alike. It is the kind of thing that Singapore normally does – to copy/re-create some spot that already exists in Hong Kong. And it is no longer called Food Street. It is part of Fashion Walk which starts down the road and extends to this part of Causeway Bay. There are a few boutiques and then this line of restaurants – Spanish, French, Pasha (which is Fusion Chinese whatever that means), Thai, Indian and a restaurant that serves only desserts. For old times sake, I ate at Chilly & Spice – the Thai restaurant. The food was okay. The service was good but it certainly wasn’t the old Food Street, nor the line of authentic restaurants that existed there. I especially missed Cleveland – the old Sze Chuan restaurant that used to be one of my favourites.
