Instead of taquitos, hot dogs, mini tacos, chicken tenders, and sausage rollers, this hot food section includes steamed buns, noodles, fish balls, fish cakes, rice noodle rolls, and soup.

Meals to go
Meals to go

7-Eleven-branded prepared foods include chicken legs (flavored with honey, sweet soy sauce, and black pepper), duck tongue, dumplings, rice dishes, noodle dishes, sandwiches, and more. One of my friends in Hong Kong said the sandwiches are terrible, but some of the other prepared foods are decent. Overall though, she recommends the hot foods over these.

This is a pretty small but common sized 7-Eleven.

If there's space outside the store, there may be a newspaper rack and a few Japanese capsule toy machines.

Behold, the best capsule toy I encountered on my trip. Its real name is Manmaru Neko Netsuke, but to me it'll always be "Anus Cat." (It also comes in dog form.)
