新港鱼蛋王 Revisit – Yuen Long, Hong Kong


Yeah I’m gonna write a series of good food in Yuen Long again. This shop has been there for decades and it’s located right in the middle of the whole Yuen Long town. Of course they are great for their balls especially fish, beef and cuttlefish balls. I have never tried their beef brisket though, hence I decided to try that this time. Check out my previous post 4 years ago http://wp.me/pCcuC-hB.

Overall Rating: 5/5. They are still offering prices around HKD$28 range and the freshness of the food here is amazing. Beef brisket melts in your mouth and very chunky! Writing this makes me wanna go back there soon! Awesome small air-conditioned place!

孖寶车仔面 @ Kwai Fong, Hong Kong


This place is highly recommended by my friend and people who lives around there. It’s basically a street stall inside a shopping mall. When you reach Kwai Fong MTR station, you have to walk on the link bridge and turn right to the older mall. If not clear better ask ‘cos I will get lost too. It was about 9pm but the business was still very good. This place I can conclude is totally unknown to tourists!

Was told by the lady I cannot take photos of the stall... but... what's there to hide??? It's just menu hanging everywhere... sigh...
Pig spare parts soup...
My order of noodles with beef brisket, cheesy cocktail sausage and squid balls. HKD$30. Basically you can choose whatever ingredient you like to add to your base plain noodles.
Stealing a peek at what others are ordering... and I didn't order... how can?!?!
So I ordered a braised chicken leg with curry fishballs. The leg damn nice... for only HKD$13 each. Balls same same like anywhere else lah.
Me putting on the disposable gloves... Had to stretch it a bit... too small!
Finally got to eat! It's juicy and tender! Love it!

大利清汤腩 @ Wan Chai, Hong Kong


Ok this place was recommended by the taxi driver who was driving myself and my friend when we were going to the other beef brisket place. So I took a short walk from my hotel, Charterhouse and reached the place in less than 10 mins. The place is tucked in a little alley from the busy roads of Wan Chai. Went in and was warmly greeted by one of the middle age lady waitress. She sat me down in front of the TV and I really love the place. Clean, bright and aircon is very strong. Love it. Check out the pics below:

The place... with a lot of reviews and pics of celebrities visited that place
That's 东方188 mall opposite...
阿牛 was here!
Other celebrities and food critic 阿苏 was there too
Clean and bright...
For my non-chinese friends, it means,"Remember to drink the soup. It'll be your loss if you don't!" Hence the soup must be really good.
Menu Side 1
Menu Side 2
First up, white radish. Very very juicy and it soaks up all the beef broth... nice... HKD$22
I was given one of the best parts of the beef brisket... forgot what it is called but it super tender and nice. Check out how every layer of meat is separated by a layer of fats... that's why so nice. The broth, I tell you it's soooooo gooood!!! - HKD$45
Plain noodles with veg. The noodles is really Q... mean it's very very supple and nice. HKD$10
A very satisfied customer...
Address of the place... they have another one near the turf club but this place is more convenient.

Taste: I have never tasted anything so good. This will definitely be one of my favourites if I’m in Wan Chai again.

Portion: Average. Just right to make you leave with your mind planning for the next trip back there!

RTE: Put it this way, I AM planning my next trip back there… ;P

Price: HKD$77 = SGD$14.00

Location: See last 2 pics.

華南粉面茶餐厅 @ Wan Chai, Hong Kong


A super old friend of mine from school days brought me to this place for dinner/supper after catching up in Hong Kong recently. According to him, he loves the beef brisket there and would try to patronize the place whenever he’s back in HK. Thanks to him if not I will never know of this place.

Store Outlook. Friend is posing... haha...
Looks small from outside but it can accommodate quite a lot of people inside. As it was summer, thank God it was air-conditioned!
Guy cooking all the beef parts and brisket. You can imagine how much flavour there is in the broth!
Beef Brisket with cabbage below. This bowl is about HKD$80... quite expensive if you ask me. Cos premium part of the brisket cost a lot more. But the taste is really good.
Very nice and tender...
Mixed Beef Parts Soup - Not a big fan of beef parts but they all tasted alright and tender. I'm ok with tribes but not the intestines and lungs and liver... but they contribute to the wonderful soup! 🙂
Nice cup of Ice Yuen Yang (tea mix with coffee) to cool the chilli hot mouth and wash it all down. Shiok!
My old classmate Gary Lim.
Me enjoying every bit of the brisket... the chilli is pretty spicy!

Rating: 4.5/5. Would be a perfect 5 if it’s not as pricey.

Taste: Pretty awesome I must say. The broth is really the essence of dunno how many cows!

Portion: Slightly above average servings.

Price: Bill came up to around HKD$140. Quite alright for those who believe in paying higher prices for good food. But I found another place which apparently is better than this place for much lesser price. Will review it later. 🙂

RTE: Maybe. It’s good but the other place is better to my taste.
