Speaking of Hong Kong style egg noodles, it is pretty hard to get a good one over here. I found a good one which is a steal version in Happy Garden. However, the variety is a lil’ limited. Recently, there is a splurge version has just opened its door in the city.
Starz Kitchen 左麟右李粥面小菜专门店
Located at the Level 7 Dining Loft was this Starz Kitchen invested by the famous artists Alam Tam and Hacken Lee; this is their 8th outlet after opening in Hong Kong, Macau, Shenzhen and Shanghai. Serving Cantonese fares like what we can get in Hong Kong, namely the springy noodles and Shrimps Wonton, dim sum, heart-warming congee, smoky BBQ meats and some special desserts delicacies.
The house’s specialty shrimp wonton noodles in soup 虾籽鲜虾云吞面 (Rm 19 for large version 大蓉)
The large version comes with 6 wontons while the smaller bowl comes with 4 wontons, hidden under a bed of thin springy noodles. The noodles were very fine and very springy, topped with a little shrimp roes that served as and yes to the soup, it was super flavourful with freshness overloaded. As for the shrimp wanton, each was generously filled with shrimp and meat. If you die die wanna compared it with the version in HK, there is still a bit not up to there yet. *personal opinion* Still good to satisfy cravings though. Price wise, it is pretty expensive for the portion served as I find my tummy has got space to fill up with more food (I had the large version).
Stewed Beef Brisket Noodles 柱候靓牛腩捞面 (Rm 21)
Beef brisket was soft and bursted with mega flavour, topped on a bed of springy egg noodles.
Stir-fried Rice Noodles with Beef Slices and Vegetables 菜远牛河 (Rm 27)
Sad to say this was not memorable and packed with only salty taste and the beef slices were not really smooth.
Siu Mai 烧卖 (Rm 13) were huge too. Must have it with the dipping chilli sauce served on the table for extra kick.
