The number of dee-pey-dongs, so called street vendors selling food, has decreased since the 1980s, when the rules of the street trading became strict.
However, the most famous noodle shops with a great variety of noodles and fillings still work. Recently, the Tim Ho Wan, a street food shop in Sham Shui Po district, has received a special mark in the new release of the Michelin, a prestigious culinary guide.
