Sun Kee (新記餐廳), Kimberly Street, Tsim Sha Tsui


The popular thing to order in this shop (Unit 13-14, G/F, Champagne Court, 16-20 Kimberly Rd, Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon, tel : +852 2722 4555) behind celebrity photos plastered walls it seems, is their cheese noodles with grilled pork neck. I'm thinking it's probably a la plancha rather than an actual grill, but that's another story for another time.

The noodles were just plain instant noodles and the pork was acceptably tasty with a suitable char. What I couldn't quite understand was the cheese sauce; or rather what makes it such a hit with the locals. It's not really just cheese as I could taste of it. I'm pretty sure there was a whole lot of corn starch in there as well. While I didn't mind trying this out, I still don't understand it and I don't think I ever will.
