Welcome to part 2 of Hong Kong Food Mangé’d!
One of the most famous famous beef noodles in Hong Kong would be Kau Kee Noodles in Central. Was it worth the hype and the line? I would say, not really. The soup wasn’t the best I’ve ever had, the meat could have been more tender (some of it was tough to bite through). The noodles themselves were nothing special.
Another Michelin Starred Street food recommendation is Yat Lok also situated in Central. The most picturesque dish they have is the duck leg with noodles. If I’m being utterly honest, this dish is way over priced and really, it wasn’t work it. The duck itself was very fatty BUT there was almost no meat at all. Also the skin was also very crispy but when soaked in soup, it just lost its crispness and became soggy.
Hong Kong food is all about being fast and filling. A perfect place for students was Yee Ka in Kennedy town. They have good portions for cheap prices but of course not the most delicious in Hong Kong.
A similar style to Yee Ka is Yee kee, again its in a similar area in Kennedy Town and it offers delivery. Many students order from here for late night munchies. They are famous for their mango sago desserts and noodles.
Last but not least, Zeng Gei, which is in the Queen Street Cooked Food Market in Sai Wan district. It’s not extremely close to the MTR but they offer some decent eats. It’s classic Cantonese food consisting of unhealthy but deliciousness. Although they don’t look appealing, the flavours are spot on and the cost is not too expensive either.
Hong Kong Food is ever evolving. It comes in different shapes and forms. Here I’ve only listed a small amount of Hong Kong restaurants but they are what I feel are iconic Hong Kong foods.
