What to eat for breakfast in HK: A bowl of hot noodles

Food is found almost everywhere in Hong Kong; on the streets, markets, MTR stations, malls, etc.
With the abundance of choices available, it is definitely not difficult to find something to fill one's stomach in this city.

If you want to eat breakfast like a local, then you should take a walk down the streets and the market to locate the busy eateries and shops.
Most of the books would tell you to try dim sum; which is quite popular among the Chinese community and is one of the weekend activity for the families.

I would recommend trying some of the noodles shop as well; wanton mee, or the fish noodles which we found near our hotel in North Point.

The shop specializes in fishballs, fish paste, and all fish-based stuffs with your choice of noodles; mee hoon, yellow noodles, hor fun/koay teow (flat rice-based noodles).

She was actually a very friendly person, and was pretty helpful too.

She noticed us taking photos of the food, and even added more spring onions to make it look more appealing in our photos :)

The squid balls were really good; the best I have ever tasted and you have to believe me as I am a big fan of squid balls :)

Fish paste dumplings with hor fun (HKD$10)

The fish paste tasted awesome but be warned as there were tiny bones (the fish paste was made of fish; and tasted very fishy!)

It was a very good breakfast, and prices were reasonable as well.
I would recommend this shop to anyone who loved something different for breakfast.
