Wai Kee, Lau Sam Kee (2011-02-05)

Most of the eateries in Sham Shui Po are concentrated in the northeast side of Cheung Sha Wan Road in the area near Fuk Wing Street.  Amongst them are Wai Kee and Lau Sum Kee which are well-known for liver noodles and wonton noodles respectively.  C and I decided to eat in both for our late lunch.

Wai Kee is doing such a brisk business that it has expanded its one shop to three shops side by side, yet lines outside the shops are common despite the increased floor space.  We tried their famous liver rice noodles and to be frank, it's nothing out of the ordinary.  The liver slices were indeed very tender but it's something I can (and do) easily cook at home.  The serving was large, of course we had to abandon half of the noodles so we could go a few shops down to eat wontons.

Lau Sum Kee is one of the restaurants recommended by food critic Choi Lan and I must admit, their wontons had the crunchiest prawns of all the wontons I ever ate in Hong Kong.  But the noodles were a bit too soft for my liking, I prefer the ones from Mak's.
