Exotic foods

For those of you who are in search for exotic foods, you have to extend your trip to the Mainland China. Hong Kong has very limited exotic foods.

Snake is probably the most exotic food you can find legally in Hong Kong. Usual snake cuisines are snake soup, sprinkled on top with biscuit flakes and dried lemon leaves. The best season to eat snake is late autumn and winter, as snakes warm your body up from the inside, besides, snakes are the fattest in these seasons as they ate plenty for hybernation, and it is easier to catch snakes when they are hybernating.

Snake bile is said to be able to heal chronic respiratory discomforts. To cure a long lasting cough, mix a snake gall bladder with wine, drink it quick as it is very bitter, then your cough will get better.

Ser Wong Fun Restaurent The most famous snake restaurant is the Ser Wong Fun Restaurant, G/F 30 Cochrane Street, Central, Hong Kong. You can get there by exit D1/D2 of the MTR Central station, walk southbound onto Queen's Road Central, then west bound along Queen's Road Central and left on Cochrane Street, the restaurant is on your left. Ser Wong Fun Restaurant does not make tourism any easy, it does not have English store name, no English menu, waiters do not even have a mechanical smile and speak only a little English. Don't let these things frustrate you, you are there just for the snakes.
