HK/Macau 2011 - Pushcart noodles and mango desserts

Economy rice stall is available in abundance in Malaysia and we generally survive on economy rice for years until someone gets fed up of it and is willing to settle for some home-cooked food, which usually guarantee better taste and better health in return. In Hong Kong, no one has ever heard of economy rice but they do have something similar called the 'che chai min', loosely translated as the pushcart noodles.
