Aberdeen Fish Ball & Noodles Restaurant, Sai Yeung Choi Street South, Mongkok


This is another slice of locality. We have come across various outlets of this noodle shop (G/F, 148 Sai Yeung Choi Street South, Mong Kok, tel : +852 2399 0699) on multiple occasions and have done nothing further than ponder over the menu for a little bit and then moving along. This time round, we decided to get some food.


We've been doing a bit of the fei ngau thing this trip. Here's another bowl of them. This one was just blanched with no seasoning. Not even salt. It came accompanied with their satay sauce which was quite salty. No gripes, nothing to blow the socks off anyone, just regular blanched sliced beef that's thoroughly cooked.


As implied by the name of the restaurant, fish ball noodles are supposed to be their forte. It's also supposed to be Aberdeen styled fish ball noodles. I don't know what that means, but the soup looked like tonkotsu. But it sure didn't taste anything like tonkotsu. It was much lighter than I was led to believe from appearance. 


This was bacon fried rice. The bacon was not very well crisped and didn't impart much smoky flavours. But in spite of it's relatively unexciting appearance, it tasted decent if unexceptional. The rice grains were fairly well coated with eggs and the plate had no excessive residual grease from the stir frying to boot. Sure beat the hell out of many fried rice back home.


The outstanding beverage here was their hot lemon Ribena. Yes, it's definitely something that one can easily make at home, but I liked that they didn't stinge on the Ribena or the lemons which resulted in a very robust fruity hot drink.
