Fresh Noodles from 章記香港仔魚蛋王 in Mong Kok, Hong Kong
It was already past 10:00 pm when we reached Mong Kok, and we haven't eaten dinner by then. Hence, we first looked for some quick bites around the place. However, after grabbing some small bites, we felt the hunger even more, so what we did was to look for restaurants that were still open. That was when we came across this noodle shop (章記香港仔魚蛋王) which does not have any English name on it. We took a peek inside and smelled something nice, so we went for it!
The interior of the place is simple and casual, similar to some stores you find in Binondo, Manila. The staff here in this restaurant do not speak English, so you may need to master the skills of charades and pointing. To help you out there is a separate menu with the names of the noodles in both Chinese and English.
Now, while waiting for our orders, we decided to just take more photos. It was my first time in Hong Kong (excluding the supposedly first time when I was 7), so I wanted to document it well.
The order started coming after about 10 minutes, and we were terribly hungry! I took quick shots of the food, and indulged ourselves.
Beef Slices Noodle Soup || HKD36 or approx P218
The soup was completely savory with the thick authentic flavor (or maybe that's just because of our minds influencing us to think that everything we'd have would be authentic, after all we were in Hong Kong). Noodles were thin and firm which is the way that I wanted them to be.
Beef Stew Noodle Soup || HKD35 or approx. P212
However, what I really liked with the noodles (and this goes for everything we ordered) was the really generous serving of the meat or the "toppings", and this made the dish very much sulit.
Sauces, such as the chili garlic, were also awesome as they add another layer of great flavors over the noodles and the soup!
Well, here's a photo of me going wild over my noodles!
Four Special Noodle Soup || HKD40 or approx. P243
This noodles contain a combination of seafood and meat, but it has more of the former. Also, if you want a lot of variety in your noodles, this will also be a great choice!
Now, there you go, it sums up this blog post, and I hope you were able to enjoy this one as well!

The noodles here in this shop is probably the best I've ever had so far. Well, it may be true that it might so happened that I was in Hong Kong and that my mind might be tricking me to exaggerate, but still this does not take away the fact that I really enjoyed the food here.
And yes, I know that there may be "better" noodle places around the area, but right now, let me just savor again that glorious moment of falling in love with the noodles there. Still, I would really appreciate it if you'd drop your recommendations. What else should I'd tried?
