Dim sum for two

Pin It

Hello Kitty had a hankering for some simple wonton noodles, so we decided to pay Ho Hung Kee (何洪記) a visit.  This traditional eatery never disappoints, and can always be counted on to serve up some quality noodles, congee, and even dim sum items.

Rice noodle rolls filled with twisted cruller (香脆油條腸粉)
- 炸兩 is something I order every time I'm here.  Unlike what is done at some run-of-the-mill congee shops, they fry up the cruller to order before wrapping them in the rice noodle rolls, so the crullers are nice and crunchy when they arrive.  A drizzle of soy sauce and a dip in the duo of sesame and plum sauces later, a delicious mouthful every time. 

Bean curd rolls with prawn (鮮蝦腐皮卷) - nice and freshly deep-fried, the bean curd skin was very crispy.  The prawn filling was deliciously crunchy, too.

Fried rice noodle rolls with dried shrimp and egg (蛋煎蝦米腸) - I had never had this before and it didn't quite turn out as I expected.  First of all, the portion was much bigger than I had anticipated.  The omelette was also a little too thick and fluffy which, while nice as an omelette, meant that the rice noodle rolls didn't make proper contact with the frying surface.  So there was no browning on the cheung fun (腸粉), which was slightly disappointing.  Oh well.  Still reasonably tasty, though.
