I noticed that in recent years there are more tourists around the neighborhood, I guess that's mainly because of the few hotels nearby, Tin Hau is a special area that has several advantage, it is only a few minutes away from Causeway Bay, but is relatively quiet and not crowded, it also offers big convenience in transportation, you can take MTR (Tin Hau station), bus (there is a bus terminal beside MTR station with routes to airport - E11 - which is slower though), plus another bus station for riding to famous destinations such as Stanleys, and A11 to airport, which is faster than E11), taxi (there is a taxi station at Electric Road) or even the slow moving tram (The station going West is just in front of MTR station). All these transportation options are close to each other, within a few minutes walk away from the MTR station, and L'hotel is the most convenient one as it is just on the opposite side of the station.

So I am happy to live in such an area, and if you live in L'hotel, I think you would find the area ok, but regarding food option, I think Tin Hau offers more for local people than for tourists, my favorite is Sister Wah (Wah Tze)'s beef noodles (華姐清湯腩), it is consistently good, but I am not sure if foreign visitors will find the environment fine, as this small eatery will expect quick turnover, and try to pack as many people as they can, so if you really wish to try it, find a time when few people will be eating there, avoid lunch hours especially.


My favorite - I like to have it this way, noodle separated from soup (牛腩撈麵)


Beef Noodle in Soup - 清湯牛腩麵 - nice


This Marinated (滷水) beef is one of the best in town

Address in Chinese: 天后電氣道13號A地下
Address in English: Ground floor, 13A Electric Road, Tin Hau
Tel: 2807 0181


There is also a restaurant just beside MTR station (Viking seafood), I actually treated my relatives there during this Chinese new year gathering, honestly, I chose it not because of anything except easy booking and convenience (near my home and it was raining, plus my relatives parked their car nearby), but as expected, there are always something from them to disappoint me, and this time was the chairs, well, yes, they ran out of chairs, and one waiter had severe foul body odor that was extremely offending, the food was average to below average as I have known all along, so I think unless you are facing the same situation as I did (bad weather, no time), try others, in fact, if you are willing to take a short ride, you can find much better dim Sum restaurants in either North Point or Causeway Bay.
