Hong Kong’s traditional dai pai dong food carts are being forced off the streets

Hong Kong’s traditional dai pai dong food carts are being forced off the streets

The i says the waft of sizzling spices from the roaring woks at Hong Kong’s traditional open-air food stalls are enough to entice any curious passers-by.

They offer reasonably priced local dishes costing as little as HK$30 (£3). But the food stalls known as dai pai dongs – which translates as “big licence stall” – are on the decline in Hong Kong.

There are only about 25 left in the city, the vast majority scattered in the financial Central and the poorer Sham Shui Po district. There is no official record of how many dai pai dongs there were during their peak in the 1960s and 70s, but some believe there were hundreds.
