Where to Eat
Mong Kok Ladies Market is not somewhere you go to eat as much but of course shopping makes a person hungry sometimes and you need to keep your energy level up. Get a quick snack from one of the small cafes along the side of the road to keep you going. There are some traditional Chinese snacks here and there such as bowls of Won Ton Noodles. There is also a KFC and a Seven Eleven near the Argyle Street end of the market which provides international style snacks and drinks..
Although not a major food destination Hong Kong people do love to eat and try out small restaurants so here as anywhere people congregate there are plentiful choices. As small restaurants and cafes change very frequently we won't try to list them here but instead suggest that you visit Hong Kong's most respected restaurant review site.
Alternatively, maybe you should be brave and try something you haven't tried before. Stick your nose into the cafe/stalls and see if you like the smell of it. Some locals favorite street side snacks are curry fish balls and curry squids.
If you are visiting during the evening, which is a good time as the bright lights of the stalls do make a festival atmosphere, then consider dinner in one of the nearby Chinese restaurants. But do understand that they are mostly serving local Chinese customers and the waiters may not speak much English nor will they always have an English printed menu.
It is often easiest therefore to go to the smaller Cafes which open onto the street as often these have photographs posted on the walls of their famous or specialty dishes.
