There are a lot of congee and noodle shops around in Hong Kong, how do you choose what’s best? Can you go wrong with any of your choices? It’s so difficult to know what’s good or not, so you just try and see. This place, I walked by and decided to try.
Located on Sai Yee Street, about 2 blocks from the Mongkok MTR station and off the overhead pedestrian bridge from the Mongkok East MTR, it’s a small shop, but the food is magnificent.
I found myself there for some breakfast, and I love Hong Kong congee. The taste is so silky smooth and thick. I went for Shredded Pork and Century Egg Congee.
You can see that it’s still boiling as it’s served to me. Mix it up with a little bit of white pepper and yum!
The taste is awesome. It’s such great comfort food that you can’t go wrong eating it. The century egg is smooth, the meat is tender and marinated just right. Put it all together and your tummy is full and ready for you to attack the day.
This place was so great, I went for supper as well. But this time, I went for noodles. I love Beef Brisket Noodles. The noodles used for this and for Wanton Noodles are the egg/prawn noodles that you can’t really find anywhere else. Here it is, such beautiful looking brisket and noodles.
I usually love to add in some Shrimp Wantons with it, and here it is. The wantons in Hong Kong are fabulous. So big and juicy, it puts the wantons in Singapore to shame.
Comfort food, that’s what Good Hope is all about for me. A wise choice to stop for food in Hong Kong!
