大利清汤腩 @ Wan Chai, Hong Kong

Advertisements

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 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.

譚仔云南米缐@Wan Chai, Hong Kong

I was in Hong Kong recently and noticed this little eatery near the hotel I was staying with crowds almost every time when I walk pass. So I decided to check out what the heck they are selling. Basically they have different types of noodles, with a basic clear broth, then you can choose to make it 麻辣, 酸辣 or 煳辣 (Ma La Spicy, Sourish Spicy or Peppery Spicy) then you choose your ingredients from the beef/pork/fish balls to bean skins, black fungus, mushrooms, vegetables, meat, etc. The broth looks plain at first but the taste is really good! Check it out:

Signboard with a typical face of the founder... very common sight in HK eateries.
This is taken at 9pm+... still have many people eating there...
The base broth with my choice of ramen noodles.
My choice of Ma La Soup with loads of veg. Looks plain right? But the broth is really good and very very spicy.
Check out the amount of ingredients.
Mid-section wings. 3pcs for HKD$18. Very very nice... basically every table has this for side dish cos it's so good!
Not very cheap, about SGD$10 for the meal. But portion is big so it's alright.

Rating: 5/5

Taste: Very nice and tasty. But spicy. Becareful.

Portion: Above average.

Price: Total HKD$56.

RTE: Yes I would but if I’m there I rather save my stomach for the beef brisket nearby.
