“Super good Lao po bing. I only eat this and it’s extremely delicious compared to the others. HKD 45 per box of 6.. well I suppose it commands a pricing for such good taste. Hard to search for the shop in mongkok though. Maybe getting from Sogo at Tsim sha shui might be easier. A must have if you visit HK, else you really miss it.”
