If you’re looking for some affordable, fresh and delicious seafood, one of your best bets in Hong Kong is Po Toi O Village (布袋澳) a small fishing village at the southern edge of the Clear Water Bay Peninsula in Sai Kung.
Wikipedia kindly points out that this where Angelina Julie and Gerard Butler visited China and spoke Chinese in the second episode “Tomb Raider – The Cradle for Life” and offers an interesting trivia about the tiny village :
The village is situated at a bay shaped like a sack, thus earning its name Po Toi (meaning a sack). Interestingly, everyone living in the village has the same surname: Po (布).
It’s not too far away from HKUST. You take line 91 and then change to the minibus at the Clear Water Bay Second Beach. The minibus originates from Po Lam MTR station, and 91 originates from Diamond Hill MTR, if that’s easier for you.
There are a few seafood restaurants in the village, which CNN crowns as “best seafood in the city”. Prices, unlike Sai Kung Town, are reasonable, and the dishes are gigantic.
