We spent an entire day in Mong Kok. Mong Kok doesn’t really have anything that is outstanding, but it’s really easy to spend a lot of time there. There are many street markets in Mong Kok so if you are looking for bargains, this is the place. Haggling in the street market is acceptable. I remember one time I went with my brother and watched him bargain down the price by of a $10 HKD item by $2 HKD, which if you do the currency conversion was approximately .25 USD. Waste of time if you ask me. The goldfish market is also located in Mong Kok, but sadly I no longer have the time or the aquarium to raise gold fish. We killed a lot of time at Langham Place, the 4D movie theater (or as the locals call it, the cinema) is located there.
We were a bit burned out with all the Michelin dining and decided to eat at a randomly selected restaurant. After doing a quick google search, we settled on an AYCE (All You Can Eat) sushi place called Banmoto. I’m a bit of a sucker when it comes to AYCE. The selection at Banmoto was huge and a bargain. You select menu items from a picture menu and then they bring you your selection freshly made. No pictures from this meal, but I can tell you what we ate. Geoduck sashimi, white tuna sashimi, salmon sashimi, tempura shrimp, tempura fish, tempura Japanese yam, yakitori beef tongue, yakitori pork belly, yakitori chicken wings, yakitori shrimp, baked scallops, stir fried scallops, unit sushi, Japanese beef, Japanese fried rice, udon, ramen, clam miso soup, crab congee, hot pot with clams, pork belly, fish, shrimp. They encourage you to try everything and don’t mind if you don’t eat it. Also included with the AYCE meal is all you can drink, Asahi beer included. Mochi ice cream thrown in for dessert.
