Ho Hung Kee 何洪記 – Decent Wonton Noodle Soup Shop In Causeway Bay
Ho Hung Kee is a noodle shop in Causeway Bay close to Time Square. One day, I wanted wonton noodle soup and I had to meet my friend who works around there and she took me to this place. It’s a typical small wonton noodle soup place with basically no décor. The service is pretty fast and brisk although the servers are generally pretty nice.
Here’s what we got:
Cha Siu Wonton Noodle Soup (Roast Pork Wonton Noodle Soup):
The broth was pretty decent, not too salty and reasonably flavorful although not the amazing kind that you can get at really good places in HK. I liked the wontons; they were plump and fresh with a pretty decent shrimp filling. The cha siu (roast pork) was decent, but not amazing. Overall, good but I’ve had better in HK. 8/10 (7.5/10 for the cha siu)
Regular Shrimp Wonton Noodle Soup:
This was pretty much the same as the cha siu version, but with no cha siu. 8/10
Beef Chow Fun:
I almost never order this dish because I’m not a huge fan of it, but this was very good here. It had great wok flavor, wasn’t overly oily and the beef was very tender. Combined with some chili sauce, it was really good. 8.5/10
Overall, it was good, I’ve had better in HK, but it was definitely still good on an absolute basis, far better than what you can get in the US.
