Jin Wei Wonton Noodle
174 Fa Yuen Street, Mong Kok, Kowloon
As we were shopping along Fa Yuen Street, my mom spotted a long queue outside this eatery specializing in all kinds of noodles. Since the long queue provides an assurance that the food can't be that bad, we decided to grab a quick dinner here before returning to retail therapy.
Both my parents have the Fish Ball Hor Fun (HKD$18/SGD$3.20) which has a heap of fish cakes, fish balls and vegetables in it. The fish balls are irregularly shaped instead of round and I could tell that not a lot of flour was used.
The must try is the Fried Fish Skin (HKD$10/SGD$1.80) which is very crispy and not oily at all. There’s no fishy smell and taste rather like potato chips.
The locals usually dip the fish skin into a bowl of soup before eating it. I tried it and there doesn’t seem to be any different as it’s still crispy after soaking in the liquid.I think there are about 20 different types of noodles to choose from.
There seems to be a perpetual queue outside the shop for its takeaway fish ball skewers.This is a cheap place to stop for a fuel break after all the shopping along the night market. Given the chance, I’ll come back here for its tasty fried fish skin.
