I know some of you guys were discussing where to get the most authentic wonton noodles around the city.. and I was trying to reply to the thread, but perhaps it was too old, the reply box wouldnt pop up... so here's my recent find. :)

Hong Kong Noodles, in the plaza at Kennedy and Hwy7. It's located on the east side, beside the Japanese place alongside the back of the plaza.

Great noodles - al dente and bouncy. The lo mein (thicker noodles) was very good as well. Don't get the ho fun (thick flat rice noodles) though.. I think they get it from somewhere, and no one was ordering it, so it got really hard. :( It's not the really thin kind, I guess, is what I'm trying to say. I'm still looking for a place that would have REALLY really really thin ho fun (in texture, not in width).

Soup - the best that I've had. Here, you can really taste what's been put in the soup. And they charge extra for more soup, .. so I guess that really means they dont want to be giving soup away for free since they've put so much labour and effort to make a good soup. Its very flavourful, and I think the least MSG-ish that I've tasted.

Wonton - nice and light, biteful sizes! I'm sorry guys, I didnt take the most important picture, the WONTON!!! But again, very flavourful ..

Fish balls - this isnt the white kind, its the kind with the "fat choy," made from the dice fish. I could really tell that they make it from scratch 'coz it crumbles as it enters your mouth. Very heavy in fish taste.

Hand-made meat balls - pork to be exact. Again, I dont taste any MSG here. Very very healthy and delectable.

Beef brisket and tendon - its like as if Mom made it at home! I say that because I ordered it after tasting mom's at home.. and it was exactly the same. Once again, minimal if any MSG.. very hearty.

Give it a try - definitely best so far in the city, for me. It's our go-to place now for HK-style noodles.
