Hong Kong: Wanchai's lunch spots

FourSeasons | Mar 3, 2009 07:11 AM

Today went to 2 places at Wanchai for reasonable-priced lunch spots.

First, went to 再興 at 11:30am for early lunch. Lucky we were able to find an empty table because the place was fully packed in the next 10 minutes. We ordered char siu, and followed what HKTraveler recommended on earlier thread, requested half fatty and half lean, and soya chicken. The char siu was very good, the fatty part provides the rich flavor with the tender cut. I think one of my favorite restaurants Fu Sing still has better quality char siu but this one here is really close to that standard too. The chicken was not as great as the char siu but still quite acceptable. Service is actually quite friendly for such hole in the wall place.

Then went for a second late lunch at Chiu Yuen Chiu Chow Noodle 潮苑. The place was fully packed. Ordered a big bowl of fish ball, squid ball, fish slices hor fun soup and another bowl of 坑腩 (a part of beef that is close to the brisket) which was highly recommended by the waitress. The fish ball and squid ball are very delicious though they are not as bouncy as those I am used to in Singapore. The 坑腩 are very tender and delicious too.

I was hoping to try 鹵八鵝店 that is recommended by sher.eats that is just right opposite Chiu Yuen. A long queue line was forming there but I was just too full for the third lunch so will have to come back here on my next trip.
