Lost City Of Snacks: Cheap dim sum in Hong Kong Airport? "YES way!"
Right, you're on your way home and you only have a pocket full of Hong Kong coins with which to buy food. You want one last taste of local cuisine but 17 dollars won't buy much outside of the 7-11 convenience store down in the Arrivals Hall. You start considering Burger King french fries or maybe a biscuit at Popeye's Fried Chicken, thinking that you can't afford a single bamboo steamer at Maxim's.
It's no challenge at Hong Kong airport; simply find the Lost City of Snacks and enjoy one last barbeque pork bun before going through Immigration. There are six stools (three at the wall and three at the counter) at this delicious dim sum deli. It's the cheapest Chinese restaurant in Hong Kong airport and yet many travellers are unaware of its existence, primarily due to the fact that it is indeed hidden among duty free shops and money exchange kiosks.
Favorite Dish: I like to get the seafood shu-mai, steamed bread, barbeque pork bun, and sticky-rice chicken. They have a special set that includes tea, or you can get fresh watermelon juice from the pastry shop directly across from Lost City of Snacks.
There's a bite for every budget, so keep the Lost City in mind when you add up the total amount of change you have left over. It's a great place for one last pleasant memory of Hong Kong before airport security tells you that your carry-on bag is too big.

Little sales booths everywhere: Finger Food
Because it was so very hot and we drank so much water during the day we did not want much food and were absolutely happy with an apple or terriyaki chicken on a stick or pop corn during the day.
Price wise I was surprised to find it much cheaper than if you buy things from the same stands at Disneyland Paris.
