60 Years of Wanton

To continue my theme of “in search of restaurants with a long history in Hong Kong”, I went to Ho Hung Kee 何洪記粥麵專家.

Ho Hung Kee was founded in 1946, with more than 60 years of service in HK.  This restaurant serves traditional culinary such as Cantonese style congee, rice noodle, wanton, dim sum etc.  In recent years they have won awards such as Hong Kong Tourism Board’s “Best of the Best Culinary Awards”, and “one-star” recognition by Michelin.

Today I tried the minced pork with noodles 炸醬撈面, spicy and sweet shredded pork with crunchy (or bouncy) noodles.  Really brought back a lot of (childhood) memory.

Whether you are a local, tourist or just happened to be in Hong Kong, and would like to taste some Cantonese style street food in a comfortable environment, this would be my recommendation.

    This dish is my all time favourite in a noodle restaurant. The sauce is most important for me. It has to be sweet, sour and spicy, but not starchy. The one in the picture looks good.
