Noodles in all shapes and sizes

“What would you like to eat?” asked Hip, “Noodles, I am craving for some noodles” was my reply.

Noodle 1: For breakfast, we headed to the popular chachanteng Tsui Wah, where I had morning breakfast set of satay beef with instant noodle in soup serve with fried egg, sweet corn, mushroom and butter bread and an iced milk tea. We started with the fried egg, very fluffy and yummy! My noodles were delightfully trashy.

Noodle 2: Also from Tsui Wah is one of their house specialities, the protein packed king prawn stirred bean curd noodles served with xo sauce and dusted with dried prawn roe. Feathery light and with a slightly springy texture, it is very fun to eat that doesn’t sit heavily in your stomach.

Noodle 3: Beef brisket noodles good enough to make one a spinster. One evening whilst we were out at a bar just around the corner from the old and famous noodle shop, we were chatting about a random cute dude that just walked in when a very funny self-defacing friend commented, ‘I am doomed to be a spinster for life, whilst you are talking about men, all I can think about is the ngau nam around the corner… do you think it is still opened?’ Much like pho, Kau Kee served beef brisket noodles in a clear herbal broth or a curry soup. I had the clear broth with the bouncy noodles whilst my companions chose to go with the silky rice noodles, either way the focus is on the broth that is dangerously addictive with refills available at a fractional cost.
