Your trip to Hong Kong is not complete until you have sample some exotic local street food. As scary as they might look, these little snack shops you find near busy streets are regulated and routinely inspected to ensure all food safety and hygiene standard are met. So don't be intimated by the random animal parts. Give the giant octopus, duck gizzards or pork intestines a try. They are real delicacies.

Anthony Bourdain was taken here by Josh Tse (former prolific blogger ChaXiuBao), but No Reservations never showed the business signage, which is entirely in Chinese. The name of the storefront translates to Fat Sis's Snack Shop.
The business specializes in simmered marinated skewered snacks, of which the bestsellers are pork large intestines, squid. They also have pork gizzards, hearts, and tongue. These skewers used to be available as pre-movie snacks in the 1980s from push carts, then the HK goverment clamped down on such pushcart vendors. To this day you can still find places that sell innards on a stick (with signature mustard sauce) but Fat Sis is the only place that does it really really well.
Located off Dundas Street, just look for the long lines (which move reasonably fast). This is a must try local delicacy when in Mongkok area. If innards are not your bag, there are however a myriad of other options nearby including fries various ways, froyo, pearl milk tea, and regional Chinese cumin lamb skewers...but you are mising out otherwise.
