I ate on the street 2 Fridays in a row. At the same eatery no less. I'll tell you it wasn't because Wing Hing is the best Chiu Chow place around. It isn't. But Tang Lung Street has that retro element that appeals to developed city folks that it's a convenient place to showcase a little old Hong Kong without having to get to older parts of Kowloon or even venture out to the New Territories.

I also tried other Chiu Chow staples on my second visit. The minced pork and baby oyster porridge （肉碎蚝仔粥）wasn't too bad. A decent tasty broth in which the rice and condiments sat, though a tad heavy on the ginger, which detracted from the other flavours. The shrimp and cucumber omelette （水瓜烙）was sadly disappointing though. Way too greasy, and impossible to eat beyond the first pizza wedge. It was hard to tell whether the grease was from failing to rid the cucumber of excess moisture before frying or whether the chef just used 2 more glugs of oil than he should have...
Overall, even Sun Kwong on the other side of Causeway Bay is better, but Wing Hing scores on the novelty factor option of being able to dine under the stars.. and a friendly and chatty "aunty" server who speaks very very decent English so that even non-native speakers can be comfortable with.
