Hong Kong Spicy Crab for Siu Yeh – The Real Deal!

I’ve been waiting to visit this place ever since I started writing this blog. I wanted to share with my readers, what it means to eat midnight snack, the Hong Kong way.

The restaurant I’m about to share is one of the true “hole-in-the-wall” restaurant that serves up some mean dishes. Choi Kei (財記) is located on the intersection of Marsh Road and Lockhart Road in Wanchai – they’ve been around for decades and like its neighbouring restaurants, that entire strip along Lockhart Road are littered with kitchens offering the famed spicy crabs (避風塘辣蟹); needless to say, my personal favorite is Choi Kei.

Just as an FYI, a lot of tourists and celebrities visiting Hong Kong are usually brought to this area for midnight snacks – how appropriate is it to write about this restaurant in blog?

I’ll let the photos do the talking:

Since my mates get off class / work late in the evening, we had dinner there at 10:30PM and I was already starving at 6! But this meal was worth every penny and effort to stave off snack prior to the meal.

The bill came up to HKD 1,150 for 8 people, although only 4 of us was eating the bulk of the food, but we order more than enough food + about 10 big bottles of beer.
