so "local" I love it!

It's not everyday that I go out of my familiar territory to try something different, and this was so different, in fact, that I would pay just for the experience itself. I have to admit that before coming here, I didn't even know where To Gwa Wan was. Definitely advise you to take a taxi here from Hung Hom, Yau Ma Tei or Mong Kok station unless you know precisely where the mini bus or bus will drop you off and how to walk to the venue. Tucked behind a long, shady-looking alleyway, this crowded shack offers a variety of seafood that you cook on a grill or in a pot. This place is definitely among the top three most local places I've been to in Hong Kong. And by "local", I mean that the atmosphere is festive and down-to-earth with a very homelike feeling. It's just so casual and chill - definitely a much humbler place compared to the restaurants I'm used to on the Island side. It's worth noting that this was the first time I stood up the whole time while eating. The smoke from the grill gets in your face when you're at seat level, so a lot of other patrons also opted to stand up.
I'm a picky eater and not a big fan of seafood, but for all the meats and crustaceans I did try, I'd say the quality isn't bad, and the cleanliness... well, if it's been grilling or boiling in a pot long enough, it should be okay for your stomach. I didn't get sick at all.
grilled to perfection, but hard to peel
as you can see, we all stood around the table. The pot closer is spicy, while the one farther away is not. So much commotion at one table, lol!
this was pretty good. It was dry after being on the grill for so long, but that's as expected
some stray cats roaming around... this one came to our table
Definitely a nice step away from more refined dining

Only the diehard supporter can find this place - it's located in a dark, slippery alley in To Kwa Wan and you have to watch your steps on your way to the restaurant. Food is good and the soup base is great too; it's stuffed with Chinese medicinal ingredients and apparently not loaded with MSG. The proprietor should seriously consider giving the restaurant a major facelift, as late-comers can only set in the alley and eat along with the cats that roam the place.

A tasty but pretty dirty place. Food are VERY fresh & tasty thou. The good thing is that u can have BBQ with hot pot at the same time. Beef (my prime concern) is even better than Hop Hing. If you really dont mind the hygiene of the place, it really worths at least one try.
