For over 50 years, foodies and thrill-seekers have flocked to Sher Wong Hip for a taste of their exotic menu.
At this legendary Hong Kong restaurant, it’s not chicken that customers are biting into.
Sher Wong Hip is one of the pioneers of the snake-eating culture that exists in Hong Kong. Ms Chau Ka Ling took over the business after the passing of her father, who started the business in 1965.
It’s a sunset industry, acknowledges Ms Chau.
The appeal of snake-based cuisine like snake soup and snake gallbladder wine and its purported health benefits has waned among the younger generation.
Still, the niche food and beverage experience continues to draw a dedicated crowd.
