1. Lau Sum Kee Noodle (?????)
The bamboo cane-pressed noodles of Lau Sun Kee do not stick together. They are so springy and have the consistency I love.
Opened in 1956, business has been going so well that they opened a branch near the original outlet to meet the increased demand. The Lau family continues to be steadfastly committed to providing customers with their handmade bamboo cane-pressed noodles. Each strip of noodles is flavored with the passion and dedication of the owners ensuring that this Hong Kong classic style of noodles is preserved.
2. Ming Court (??)
Food either tastes good or bad regardless of how conventional or unconventional it is!
Having received the 'Best of the Best Culinary Awards' from the Hong Kong Tourism Board, Michelin Star winner, Ming Court, is one of the few upscale restaurants located in bustling Mong Kok. Only five years old, it has received impressive reviews from the town's most respected food connoisseurs. Its Executive Chef Tsang Chiu King, backed by 30 years cooking experience, ensures every dish bears his signatures of delicate presentation and exquisite taste.
3. Crystal Jade La Mian Xiao Long Bao ?????????
Only a smooth and springy feel make for a good La Mian. Crystal Jade has always maintained its high standard!
Lanzhou La Mian masters are on stand-by at Crystal Jade La Mian Xiao Long Bao to make hand-pulled noodles upon customer's order. How the chefs make the uniformly shaped hand-pulled noodles is a piece of delicious art. By using such ingredients as pork tailbone, mature chicken, Jinhua ham and dried tangerine peel gives the stock its aromatic and intense flavor. It's no surprise the restaurant made it into the prestigious Michelin Guide.
4. Wing Lai Yuen (???)
Wing Lai Yuen is a superb noodle maker. Its skilled noodle masters make the best noodles most suitable to the different seasons.
The signature Dandan Noodles of Wing Lai Yuen were first created by the common folk in Sichuan. Today, noodle masters make fresh, slim and silky noodles byhand every day. When served a hot bowl of these tasty noodles, the combined aroma of pork bone soup and peanuts emerges. Other ingredients such as shredded white radish and minced meat are added to the Modern Dandan Noodles to make the dish creamier and more palatable.
5. Chee Kee (??)
Outstanding wonton noodles should be refreshing and not glutinous. Most importantly, they should be served hot.
Wonton noodles are among the classic Hong Kong dishes. Noodles, stock and wonton filling should be selected and matched with great care to get that perfect wonton noodle soup. To ensure quality, Chee Kee owner Mr. Wong makes surprise visits to his shops and checks out the noodles himself. Simply match the noodles with the traditional bite-sized wonton, and you will find it quite extraordinary!
6. Tasty Congee and Noodle Wantun Shop (??????)
Tasty Congee and Noodle is carrying forward the Hong Kong tradition in wonton-making with its modern image.
Wonton noodles are up there in the list of classic Cantonese snacks. Although wontons from different shops are flavored in their own styles, its meat filling should always be fresh and its taste always distinct and at the same time well-blended. Weighing one 'qian' and three' fen' (equivalent to 6.5 grams), each piece of wonton is filled with fresh water shrimps and semi-fat pork. With its bite size just right and the soup aroma lingering on your taste buds, wonton will surely whet your appetite!
7. The Royal Garden Chinese Restaurant (???)
The restaurant serves delicious and mouth-watering dishes in a comfortable setting. Its Gold with Distinction Award-winning dish, Dragon on the snow, is a must-eat item.
Chosen by the Michelin Guide as a gourmet restaurant, The Royal Garden Chinese Restaurant takes after a traditional Chinese courtyard. With a small bridge over a flowing stream and screens with Chinese-style embroidery, there is a familiar comfort in these surroundings. To create the Best of the Best Culinary Awards Gold with Distinction Award-winning dish, Dragon on the Snow, slim noodles are stir-fried and further simmered in stock. Topped with fried egg white and lobster meat, the dish is smooth and elegant.
8. Manor Restaurant (????)
Manor has specially employed a team of cooks to make whole-egg noodles. The fine-textured slim noodles are my favorite.
Don't be surprised if you run into veteran movie and TV stars like Susanna Kwan and Sam Hui at Manor Restaurant, aka the 'Celebrities’ Dining Room'. Manor first created its signature dish, Stir-Fried Noodles in Soy Sauce, 20 years ago and it has since been served numerous times to its local followers. Strips of noodles that do not stick together are evenly coated with the restaurant's special soy sauce.
9. Lin Heung Tea House (???)
I like going to Chinese teahouses because I like Cantonese-style dim sum and dishes. Stir-fried noodles with sliced pork are my all-time favorite.
Cantonese people believe that 'boiling water makes good tea' and 'a cup of tea is the best company of dim sum',so at Lin Heung Tea House, each customer is served with a small teacup of hot tea. Aside from its traditional way of making tea and dim sum, the restaurant is famous for its Stir-Fried Noodles with Sliced Pork. The chef makes sure he gets the best pork from the market every day. Together with hotbed chives and mushrooms, they are sliced, stir-fried and finally placed above the deep-fried egg noodles to from a spectacular dish. The egg noodles are refreshing, not oily, and remain crispy even when mixed with the sauce.
10. Wing Kee Noodle (????)
I recommend both Wing Kee and Sun Kee because their waiters are very cheerful and passionate, and best show Hong Kong’s hospitality.
Curry, hot pepper powder, marinated foodstuffs and 12 other secret ingredients are transformed magically by the owner, Miss Chung, into this special Hong Kong-style hot and spicy sauce loved by the customers.
11. Lan Lan Noodles (?????)
With its assortment of ingredients and affordable prices, cart noodles represent the city's local food scene.
Wan Lan Noodles has been serving Hong Kong for over 10 years but it was only recently that it introduced cart noodles with new ingredients such as hot and spicy chicken wings and shrimp rolls. Its grilled skewered meats and pan-fried vegetables with minced fish meat filling are some of the other classic snacks favored by Hong Kong foodies.
