Exploring Hong Kong Island South: Nam Long Shan Cooked Food Center
Exploring Hong Kong Island South: Nam Long Shan Road Cooked Food Center. Two floors of hawker stalls in a building immediately between the new Wong Chuk Hang MTR Station and the Tai Wong Ye Temple. This building and its shops have been in existence from before the time that the site of the new MRT station was a housing complex of 10 residential blocks, now cleared to make way for the MTR line and its associated new development. While the MTR was going up, this building itself looked more like a construction site than restaurants. It has maintained a local reputation for good inexpensive food, especially its two Thai restaurants. It will be interesting to see if this location will be allowed to remain with its current tenants and local customers, or if it also will develop with more upscale chain food outlets and shops once the MTR station is fully operational. The MTR south Island Line is now scheduled to open in late December.
