To start of the year, Mr Boyfriend and I flew to the Land of Yum Yum Food for a short trip with a number of friends. Just on wanton noodles, we had tried 3 recommended stalls – 沾仔记, 麥奀記 and 何洪記. Will post an individually for each stalls.
Tsim Chai Kee 沾仔记, said to be the most economical noodles because of the amount of toppings.
And of course, it had been highly recommended with a Wall of Frame. Plus there’s a queue and the place was pack.
At HK$24 for a bowl of wanton noodles and one chosen topping it is pretty reasonable especially when compared to the other two stalls which are slightly more pricey. However, personally, I will seriously not recommend this wanton noodle stall. Firstly, the taste of lye-water (jian shui) in the soup is so overwhelming that you won’t want to drink another spoon of the soup. Secondly, we are all very thirsty after the meal, imagine the amount of MSG used.
The wanton is normal and alright. BUT the mega-sized fishball is not impressive at all, I couldn’t stand another bite. I don’t remember about the sliced beef though.
If you ask me? Go give other stalls or food a chance and skip this.
