One of the restaurants we always patronize in Hong Kong is this hole in the wall restaurant that serves the best congee and pretty good noodle soup.
Chiu Fat used to be in Hankow Rd. but now it moved to a more visible location in Lock Rd. It’s right beside Swindon Books and next to iSquare. You will see Bee Cheng Hiang on the same street.

I always, always order the 4 kinds of fish balls with or without noodles. This time I ordered it without noodles since I wasn’t very hungry. It was more expensive since there were 2 of each balls in an order. There was also seaweed in the soup.
4 kinds of fish balls soup HK$40
Last Holy Week I was in Hong Kong and we ate there again.
hot chrysanthemum drink HK$18
My mom hated the chicken which was extremely fatty and barely had any meat. It was a bit bloody too. I guess she’s going back to the noodles and congee next time.
old style Hainanese chicken rice HK$40
This was from the Fish Bones Soup series. My dad chose the rice in soup with baby oysters and minced pork. The oysters were really fresh and added a briny flavor to the soup.

When you’re in Hong Kong and staying in the Tsim Sha Tsui area do give Chiu Fat a try. Just go during odd hours since it’s always full around 1:00 pm which is their lunch break and 7:00 pm. I’ve recommended this restaurant to several friends and they all enjoyed their meal there.
I almost forgot to mention that they don’t serve house tea or water. Everything must be purchase even tissue paper. They don’t mind if you bring your own drinks.
