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.

My mother was a great cook for Vietnamese cuisine and passed her recipes on to my wife who has become an excellent cook of various parts of the world, including Asia.

    Whenever we decide to dine out, we usually select an Asian restaurant and try different dishes each time.

  6. You had me hungry halfway through the article. I have to find this place and try it myself. Thanks for sharing the good stuff in Hong Kong. I tried Mak’s Noodles and I think it is not bad, but not fantastic. In addition, I think the Mak’s Noodles at Wellington Street is not that good compared to other joints. Most likely, it’s due to the crowd and the kitchen might have rushed the orders especially during peak hours. The one besides Australia Dairy Company is better!

    1. Hi Jude! Great! Mission accomplished! haha.

      We tried Mak’s and others. And to be honest, they were all right. But compared to Shek Kee, they did not meet the mark. Even our friend in Hong Kong goes to this place two to three times a week! That says it all. haha.

      And we agree with you. Mak’s not fantastic. A bit overrated. Also, their branches differ in tastes and standards. Whatever the reasons, we believe that cafes and restaurants should maintain standards.

      Do drop us a note and share your experience when you visit Shek Kee.

  7. I love your review as noodles is one of my favorite stuff. And I like the image too….it is mouth watering. Good of you to include a map of the locations as well, for those who like to travel and might end up in Hongkong one of these days. The price is also reasonable, if it is in Hongkong $. In general, you have a great site.

    1. Thanks Rebecca! We are glad you love our review!

      We do our best to take good photos. All from our camera phones. We will invest in a good camera soon, and take even better photos. Watch for those! 🙂

      Yes, we believe in helping people to find places we recommend. Hence, the map and directions. We are glad you appreciate it.

      And yes! The price of the noodles is very reasonable. It is in Hong Kong Dollars. So worth it, right?

      And thank you for your praise of our website. We will keep making it better.

  8. Your picture just made me so hungry. I love wontons but never really had the authenic ones where I want to eat it everyday. I have never been to hong kong. My husband and I are planning a trip to China sometime next year. I will definitely have to find this place and give it a try. I love food, great and delicious foods are even better. Thank you for sharing!

    1. These wontons are really good, Hong. Your husband and you simply must try them!

  9. Hi Timotheus

    That was a great read, and I wish I was in Hong Kong to taste this amazing place and noodles.
    Lucky for me, I am in London where I can still find restaurants that make them. I don’t know if the quality will be the same, but I will give Wonton Noodles a try. Have you tried the Korean Noodles called Chop Chae? I love it!
    Thanks for that.

    1. Hi Stefan! Glad you dropped by.
      Hong Kong is an amazing place with really great food. We have just started sharing a few. We plan to visit Hong Kong again, and share more interesting places as well as where you can find delicious food.

      Do let us know how the Wonton Noodles are in London?

      We have not heard of the Korean Noodles called Chop Chae. Do take a pic and show us? So far, we only know JaJaengMien, Kimchi Noodles, and others.

  10. Hey Tim. great article. I am a big fan of Asia as a travel destination. I like authentic foods when traveling to Asian Countries, and noodles are definitely in the top two after fried rice. I’ll take a look on my next trip.

    1. Hey Dan, glad you dropped by. 🙂

      Happy to hear you are a big fan of traveling to Asia. Do bookmark us, and refer to our articles for helpful info. And if you are looking for best hotel deals, do click on the banner ads we feature on our site.

      We love Fried Rice too! Do you know that there is a place in Singapore that sells Fried Rice for SGD25 per plate? That feeds only one, at most two people?? It is considered expensive! But people still buy them. Maybe we should try it and blog about it here?

      Do let us know when you visit Asia. See you around.

  11. If I’m ever in Hong Kong, this will be very helpful! I do have a Swedish friend who travels to Hong Kong with his wife almost every year, so I will definitely pass it along to them!

    1. Hi Brian! Thanks! Hope your friend enjoys the Wonton Noodles.

  12. Those noodles and dumplings look amazing, I have never been to Hong Kong I will have to put it on my Bucket List I can’t go through life not knowing what Shek Kee’s Wonton noodles taste like. Thanks for the great review you really make it easy for visitors to find the best places and know that they will get quality food without breaking the bank. I love prawns so that meal will definitely be my first stop if I go there. Do you know if they have a vegetarian friendly option aswell?
    Kind Regards

    1. Hi Chani! Thanks for dropping by. Glad you like our review, and the detailed information we provide. Your feedback helps us know we are on track at helping people find best food in the Best Places To Visit in Asia.

      Oh, when you visit Hong Kong, you must try Shek Kee Wonton Noodles. If we remember correctly, there is a fish version but no vegetarian option. Then again, things change quickly. When you are there, take a look at the menu and see if there are any vegetarian choices. Do let us know after you have enjoyed the food, and let us know what you think of it?

  13. Sounds like a good meal to try. I did spend some time in Korea and I was really into trying things I never have seen or heard of. I would love to visit Hong Kong and try some of their cultures.

    Is there a big difference between the two cultures?

    1. This is really good, Ronnie. If you are ever in Hong Kong, I highly recommend that you try this.

      Korea and Hong Kong are two very different cultures. I can’t write it all here. There is a Hong Kong section in Asia Travel Gems where you can read all about this city, including about culture – https://asiatravelgems.com/hong-kong/. In time, I will add a section on Korea.

      This is the first post of my recent trip to Kuala Lumpur, Ipoh and Penang in Malaysia. Please subscribe to the Best Places to Visit in Asia newsletter for updates. 🙂

  14. Hey Timotheus,
    That was a very interesting article!
    I have never been to Asia but have always wanted to visit Toyko.
    Hong Kong is up there on my list as well.
    Is food and water clean enough to consume there without caution?

    1. Hey Dwight,

      Thanks! Glad you enjoyed this review. And very happy to hear that you will be visiting Hong Kong. In time, I will do posts about Tokyo, too.

      For now, I have just returned from a vacation in Kuala Lumpur, Ipoh & Penang in Malaysia. I have shared my first post from that trip at this link – https://asiatravelgems.com/malaysia/kuala-lumpur/best-places-to-eat-in-kuala-lumpur/kinjuku-setiawalk-mall-review/.
