Kwan Kee Bamboo Noodle, Wing Lung Street, Cheung Sha Wan

We made the trip to Cheong Sha Wan for some old school bamboo noodles with prawn roe. Yeap, egg noodles made with bamboo poles known as zhuk sang meen (竹昇麵); a process from back in the day when there were no machines. A experience in a taste of history for egg noodles in Hong Kong was what we were hoping for. Those bamboo noodles were exactly what Kwan Kee Bamboo Noodle (1 Wing Lung Street, Cheung Sha Wan, Hong Kong, tel : +852 3484 9126) was renowned for.

We had a couple of their dried shrimp roe noodle offerings. Didn't think so much of their wanton. The dumplings had thicker skin than I was expecting and also didn't have the aroma of dried sole. While the ingredients on the side passed muster, I wouldn't quite term them as mention worthy. But those chewy noodles with generous sprinkles of har ji (虾籽) were pretty good. Bowl of accompanying soup was nice too.
