何洪記 Ho Hung Kee – Causeway Bay, Hong Kong

I needed more Michelin Star goodness in my short transfer in Hong Kong, so I went to Ho Hung Kee at Causeway Bay.  They went from a small shop to a grand place at Hysan Place and the place is beautiful.

At 4pm in the afternoon, I had the place to myself.img_9105

The Wonton Noodles are Michelin Star rated.  I personally like to add Beef Brisket to it and combine it all together.  The interesting thing is that in the old place, Beef Brisket Wonton Noodle Soup is on the Chinese menu.  In this place, it’s not on the English menu.  But I ordered it any way in Cantonese.img_9106The Beef Brisket was tender and juicy, perfectly done.  The Wonton was plump and juicy, though not as big as other places.  The noodle was just nice as well, perfectly done.  All great and dandy.

My only objection to this bowl of Wanton Noodles is the price.  $83 HKD.  That’s about $11 USD/$16.50 SGD.  They charge you for Beef Brisket Noodles and then a la carte Wontons.  Wow, the price is up there.  A lot of the local shops will charge you about $45 HKD for this, or $5.50 USD/$9 SGD.

Yes, the taste is amazing, and you should try it once.  But for your fix, I recommend local shops who make it just as good.
