After all that Chinese food in Hong Kong, I thought it might be a while before I started craving Chinese food again. Instead, I found myself at Jim Chai Kee Noodle looking forward to comparing their wonton mein against Mak's Noodles wonton mein in Hong Kong.
Here comes the moment of truth:
Really delicious! The thin-skinned wontons were gigantic and filled with a tasty shrimp mixture.
Way more filling than Mak's Noodles and cheaper too!
The noodles and the broth were good, but I think Mak's had a heartier and tastier broth.
Wonton Noodle Soup
Wonton with ho fun
I love rice noodles because they're (a) great at absorbing flavour and (b) the slippery texture is perfect with soup or in a stir fry. The soup base was a lot easier to taste with ho fun than with the mein and it had a nice chicken broth taste.
3 Toppings Lo Mein
This dish shows a clearer picture of what the wontons, beef and fish balls look like. I personally like the noodle soup version better than the lo mein because I like sauce and soup with my noodles. However, this lo mein was still really good.
Overall: Quick service and food at Jim Chai Kee Noodle and the wontons were really good!
