Chee Kei (池記) is one of the many Cantonese noodle & congee chain of eateries one finds all over Hong Kong. This is very competitive, survival-of-the-fittest, market, so the fact that Chee Kei has been around for over two decades attest to its ability to give local HK diners what they want.
I had a quick meal here at the Lock Road, Tsimshatsui, branch one evening with an ex-colleague who worked nearby in Harbour City. There’s a perpetual queue (longer during peak meal-times) for a table in its cramped dining premises.
- Started off with very light, crisp-fried wantons recommended by our waitress.
- Egg noodles topped with salted shrimp roe:
- Crab congee - one of the weekly specials. Okay-tasting.
- Blanched “gai lan” vegetables with oyster sauce dip.
