Finding Shek Kee Wonton Noodles
When we first arrived during this trip, we met up and had lunch with our friend in Hong Kong. When we told her we planned to have dinner at Shek Kee, she was surprised we knew of the place.
She gushed that they have the best dumplings in Hong Kong! Shek Kee is a favorite among the locals, and she would even patronize the eating place at least three times a week!
With that personal review, we were convinced that we must try Shek Kee Wonton Noodles. After some shopping and sightseeing, we started to search for Shek Kee.
It was quite easy to find the eating place. Just follow Google Maps. More information in the How to Get There section below.
Shek Kee Wonton Noodles
We must have arrived a little earlier then dinner time. The place was not crowded. As such, we were able to get a table easily.
Shek Kee is one of the typical local eating places. It is not a cafe or 5 star restaurant. So do not expect superb service. It was good enough that they attended to us quickly, and in a friendly manner.
The staff took our order. And few minutes after that, the dinner crowd started to trickle in. Soon enough, the place was packed.
We ordered the Wonton Noodles with Fish Balls. And it cost only HK$35! So affordable!
This was the best Wonton Noodles we ever tasted! The noodles were just the right texture; chewy but not hard.
The wonton dumplings were large, and each was filled with meat and a full fresh and succulent prawn. If you like, you can add fish balls to the soup.
The soup was very tasty and flavorful. We made a guess that the fish bones and prawn shells from the ingredients were kept and cooked as part of the soup. That contributed to its great taste.
The soup really distinguishes Shek Kee from the others.
