Noodle Heaven

We were led into a false sense of security by our time in Japan, thinking that all noodles were going to be that good. We were to be disappointed. I could not remember eating noodles before from a Chinese restaurant either in London or here in Hong Kong, so it all came at me as a shock.

After countless attempt to find somewhere that did good noodle soup. We eventually found 3 that hit the spot. 

The best was a small stall in the Cooked Food Centre in Bowrington Road Market. Shop number 3 if an of you want to try. I suggest you do.
The noodle soup base was really well made and full of flavor, and we could actually taste how good the noodles were, and they were really good. 
I had barbecued pork on mine, and Lina went for duck. Yum yum yum..... 
I noticed that when we were paying he also did a good mutton curry. Bet they would be fab with noodles. 

Next was Mak's Noodles, a small hole in the wall. We encountered this place on a Sunday lunchtime and had to share a table with an old couple, who looked like they were enjoying their food. It was packed with old couples and families on for a lunchtime treat. 
I had beef brisket noodles and Lina opted for pork with shrimp wonton noodles. Again as above its the soup base that makes it, this one had a slight fishy tang to it that a real delight to eat. our other one was a small place opposite Mak's. Again same deal really, only slightly cheaper. Really good soup base. Wish I'd have gone for the wide noodles.  

Overall our time in Hong Kong had shown us what a delight it is. We have experienced a lot more than we thought we were going to. We were both quite sad to leave as we had grown quite attached to the place. 

Our final meal was actually Sashimi and Sake. It really was just an excuse to use my new knife. Hahahahahaha ..... 
Next stop Macau .....
