Hong Kong Restaurant: Tsim Chai Kee

Tsim Chai Kee is a popular wonton noodle shop in Hong Kong. Hong Kong food is usually pricey but this place is different as the food is reasonably priced compared to other places.

This place has been recommended by many magazines and newspaper articles one. That's how I came to hunt down this place.

Just take MTR to Central and look out for Number 98 Wellington Street and you will see the restaurant.

We arrived very early in the morning, so they were still preparing the wontons. Now we know our wontons are definitely hand made with tender loving care and fresh!

While the lady went to prepare our orders, I took a snapshot of her workstation. Notice the size of those wontons! HUGE!

A closer look shows how big they are. Biggest I've seen! You won't see wontons this big in Brunei!

Noodles finally done! W000! Let's check them out!

I ordered the one with everything. Beef, Meatballs and Wontons.

The noodles are quite thin and springy. It goes well with the soup. Like very thin kolomee. I especially like the soup. Good flavour!

Huge wonton, wonder what's in it.

*slurp slurp* lots of prawns!

You die die must add their home made chili to the soup.

I definitely liked the Wonton Mee. Give it a try when you visit Hong Kong.
