- “Typhoon shelter” seafood, an iconic Hong Kong cuisine, originated from the thriving nightlife hub at
the waterfront of Causeway Bay. This protected bay was also a perfect place of refuge during the
typhoon season & came to be known formally as typhoon shelter. gradually, it also became home
to a small ﬂeet of ﬂoating restaurants. diners were ferried for the dishes of these boat people, &
the best-known is typhoon shelter crab, an aromatic delight featuring crispy golden crumb, wok
fried garlic, dried chilli, & spices, that delivers just the right level of piquancy & heat.
