The Rival of the Noodles Specialist

We were walking down Wellington Street on night in Hong Kong hunting for the famed wonton noodles at Mak's Noodles. When we were very near to the shop, our hearts were pounding as we were expecting the nicest noodles in Hong Kong to be served. Unfortunately the shop was closing when we were about to ask for a table, so we went to the opposite shop, Tsim Chai Kee (沾仔记).




How could three professional food hunters declare defeat so easily? So, we returned to the shop in one afternoon to beat the closing time!




The interior of this place is no different from a typical tea and food outlet in Hong Kong. The uncle would come with a few glasses of tea and take your order immediately.




The lady boxer would watch over what you eat and she would punch in the prices of the food you have eaten if you show indication of leaving the table. The bill is presented to you when you are in the proximity of getting it from her hand, making sure that you pay before you can walk out of the shop.




The bowl of legendary noodles had finally arrived in front of me! Even the noodles were glowing!




My order was the special item on the menu, i.e., soup noodles with dumpling and wonton (HKD38.00). It came with three shrimp wontons and a dumpling.




The taste was nice, but it was spoiled by the little hint of ammonia. It would have beaten Tsim Chai Kee (沾仔记) hands down if not for that slight ammonia taste.




The chef cooks the noodles in a kitchen with glass walls all round for you to enjoy the show of cooking while savouring your bowl of noodles. What a show!

wow....yummy. i'm always looking for nice wantan noodles, but to no avail!
there was a time when i ordered a plate of wantan noodles but they gave me only the noodles without wantan. so, it's like wantan noodles without wantan, or in other words, iced tea without ice, you get what i mean??? others are either overcooked or the taste were sooooo fake.
how i wish i were living in HK now!
