Lascar Row, or Cat Alley, is located in Sheung Wan, Hong Kong. Originally it was a boarding house area for Indian sailors. It was also a red light district.

So, you say that street food isn’t for you. Fair enough. You can try the food prepared in a local shop. You can buy all forms of barb – ecued meat in any number of local shops.
