What activities can you do in Hong Kong besides shopping? Eat, of course!! Years of watching those Hong Kong dramas make you feel like want to experience eating at these shops yourself.

Hey, last time can only look at the scene on the TV set only. This time we were experiencing Hong Kong dining for real!

Our very first stop when we arrived after checking into hostel was this place, Tong Kee Noodles. This shop is located at the front end Ladies’ Street. As the shop name suggested, this shop sells variety of noodles with different flavours and ingredients.

The szechuan zar jiang noodles (炸酱面)was the first to arrive. The portion of minced pork served on this dish was a lot relative to the noodles. The noodles they used were mostly wan tan mee type. The sauce was a bit sweet and you can add the chili to make it spicy. Oh the chili was very spicy till it could make Tam Ciak’s lips swelling like two piece hotdogs after taking them…. Arrrgggh..

The second dish that arrived was fish ball and wanton hor fun (云吞鱼丸粉) which is koay teow th’ng in Penang. This hor fun is one of the specialty dishes sold here. The portion of the koay teow could make three bowls of koay teow th’ng sold in Penang. Wow, first complete meal over here was a big challenge already because we did not know the portion could be that much. The fish ball was home made and much larger in size, bigger than our 50 cents coin.

Next came the pork knuckles with dry noodles (猪手捞面)that look like wan tan mee.

If you ever like pork knuckles, you will be happy to see the portion they give to you and the smell of pork knuckles teasing your taste buds, just like what happened to Tam Ciak’s friend. She was sooooo excited upon when the dish was served~!

The final dish was hor fun with pork in light soy sauce (卤肉捞粉). Tam Ciak had only one comment for this dish, the pork slices were big and juicy!!

They were so thick and much bigger in size that once you put them into your mouth, there was a satisfying feeling of eating pork…Hahaha

The price of each dish over here is typically around HKD20-30 depending on the type.

But, every day, they would have a special offer for certain dish at discounted price for about HKD15 per dish. When we were there, it was the zar jiang noodles being sold as promo item. Also, another specialty dish here is fried fish skin but we did not order it because we were already too full~!!

    Gimme one szechuan zar jiang noodles plzzz!!!
    Food elsewhere are not as cheap as Penang but the portion definitely make the money worth paying for. If penang hawkers still keep on reducing the portion, one day we will end up with just 2-3 mouthful per bowl/plate only!!

    Hi Tua Pui,

    I am planning for a free and easy trip to Hong Kong. Do you mind to share with me the hotel that you stayed during your trip in Hong Kong? Or you have any to suggest? Thanks.

    p/s: Sorry, I am posting something not related to the food....:-)

    hi there...

    we didn't stay in hotel but in hostel instead. We chose to stay at Dragon Hostel (http://www.dragonhostel.com) in Mongkok based on some friends recommendation.

    The hostel is neat and convenience and within the walking distance of most places we wanted to go like Ladies Market, Temple Street, Nathan Road. Some more we could find lots of local food and snacks the moment we got out of the building. So it's pretty easy and convenience for us. Also, it was quite near to MTR.

    The only downside is the room can be quite small and cramp. For us, we needed the place to rest and freshen up only as we would be out whole day, so it's no problem to us.

    Another place is at Hong Kong Hostel (http://www.wangfathostel.com.hk/index.html) at Causeway Bay. We did get recommendation for that hostel but the place was far from our places of interest...

    We chose hostel over hotel because we were on free and easy tour and we don't need posh place to sleep.. as long as comfortable will do.. and we could use the money to spend on more food and shopping... That is much more worth the money~!! :):)
