Chinese Cafe (Kam Hong Street)
North Point, Hong Kong
The best Wonton Mien I've ever tasted. The soup was very tasty but that's because of the MSG overload so it was really nothing special. The best thing about the noodle soup was the noodles itself. The noodles were really good, borderline crunchy. They had a bite to it but not too hard that it'll graze your mouth's interior. The noodles were soft enough to chew but tough enough to give it some texture. You have to try it for yourself to actually experience what I'm saying. It is definitely different writing something than experiencing it first hand.
I've seen an episode of Anthony Bourdain's No Reservations on Hong Kong and the dying art of authentic noodle making. This made me see the noodles in a different light. Making very good noodles via the ancient method is indeed a dying art and involves much hard work. Sad though that people have been too lazy to continue this very "manual" art. Machines have replaced actual hands-on creation. As a result, great noodles are hard to find nowadays, so being able to experience some awesome noodles during our last day in Hong Kong was a real treat!
