Wong Chi Kei is one of the oldest and most well-established Cantonese bamboo noodles spots from Macau, but which has opened a HK outlet in recent years to satisfy the demands of many Hongkongers who’d previously taken a ferry ride all the way to Macau for a taste of its noodles.
This outlet on Stanley Street, Central, opens from 7.30am for breakfast. It can be pretty crowded in the early morning and also at lunch-time. We went there just past 9am on a weekday - one of the quiet periods in the otherwise very busy restaurant.
- Wong Chi Kei’s very springy wanton noodles with some really superlative wanton dumplings.
- Pork and century egg congee - done very well here - smooth, very flavoursome ivory-white rice congee like only the Cantonese know how to make.
- Century eggs with pickled ginger - superb, but still not up to Yung Kee’s standards:
