Hing Kee Clay Pot Rice G/F, 15 Temple St Jordan Grub: Traditional, local 'clay pot rice', and other Hong Kong, dai pai dong-style dishes. Vibe: This is the perfect place to bring friends from overseas for a taste of genuine local life. Even the approach to the restaurant is an experience: as you walk to Temple Street from the Yau Ma Tei MTR station, you can't fail to miss Hing Kee, as there is always a huge queue. The restaurant has become so successful that there are now four branches around Temple Street. Luckily, despite their size, the queues tend to move quite quickly, and you usually get a table within about 15 minutes. The restaurants are a perfect example of a stereotypical Hong Kong night out - the ambience, decor, service and food all scream Temple Street. Who to bring: Your friends and family from overseas who want a little Temple Street without actually being outside in the thick of it. It's also great if you just want to sit back and chill out with a bunch of friends. It's best is to limit your party to a maximum of six, though, to avoid packing yourselves around a table like sardines. What's hot: Their signature rice and the crispy fried oyster omelette are must-try items for your first visit. They have various types of clay pot rice on the menu, starting at only HK$18 only. The best thing about is that the rice comes in quite small portions, so you can order a few different toppings to share with friends. Other dishes also come in rather small portion, but the prices are very reasonable What's not: The service and environment can be a big turn-off for those not used to the Temple Street atmosphere. It's not the kind of place to go to catch up with friends you haven't seen for a long time, or those who need a comfortable seat. The food can take a long time to come, so it's best to decide what you want while you're queueing to save time once you get a table. Cost: It's definitely a bargain for such local delicacies. Clay pot rice starts from HK$18, dishes like stir-fried clams with chilli and fried vegetables are around HK$40. Expect to spend around HK$50 to HK$60 per person on enough signature dishes to fill up even your hungriest friends.
