ikan bilis in hong kong?

on a recent visit to Singapore my kids really took a liking to nasi goreng with fried ikan bilis, but I don't know where to find dried ikan bilis in hong kong. any of your singapore expats in hong kong know where to find it?

thanks in advance,

  1. i know about nasi goreng of the Indonesian variety, so i'll assume ikan bilis is that as well. in that case, you'd most easily find it in Causeway Bay, near the pedestrian walkway the crosses over Henessy Road.

    if you circle around the block that's surrounded by Sugar St. and Yee Wo St., you'd find a number of Indonesian supermarkets that would have what you want.

    1. Ikan bilis are tiny little dried anchovies. I would just go to a market that sells dried seafood (shrimp, scallops, etc) and ask them or just look for it. Plus points if they sell it already cleaned since it takes a long time to clean!
