Backpacker's Tips :  Angus, HK (Nov 02)
There is a good place in Kowloon for 'hot pot', very cheap but delicious food, traditional Cantonese food. It is on Cheung Sha wan MTR station, in Kowloon, 6 station from Tsim Sha Tsui MTR station / 15mins travel, it is only HK$50 for a person, but is in Buffet!!! Its located in Li Check Uk estate, Po On Road. The only one Chinese restaurant, on the platform of the estate   If you require some help or advise about HK, you can contact Angus directly at ecoangusho@ctimail.com
