One More Bowl

Hong Kong

Congee and noodles are a daily staple in Hong Kong. These Asian specialties keep the city alive, filling up residents from the break of dawn up until the wee hours. Local go-to’s range from long-standing establishments to hawker-style joints. Everybody’s got their own special way of preparing these two beloved dishes. Sample a variety of options such as the common Cantonese-style congee, which infuses raw ingredients into the broth; seafood-filled Chiu Chow-style congee; wonton noodles topped with bite-sized Chinese dumplings; mix-and-match cart noodles, and more!

Wing Kee Noodle (Sugar Street)


Hong Kong, China, People's Republic • Recommendation • a year ago

Customize your own bowl at Wing Kee Noodle! Start by choosing your preferred noodles (egg or rice); then, pick from a variety of toppings to put in your scrumptious beef broth: fish balls, beef brisket, pork sausages, chicken wings, wontons, and more. Add as little or as much as you like! The restaurant is tiny, so expect to be seated in a communal table beside locals. Cantonese is the main language spoken by staff, but they have an English menu for easy ordering!

Ho Hung Kee


Hong Kong, China, People's Republic • Recommendation • a year ago

Ho Hung Kee has come a long way since its days as a casual roadside eatery! Opened in 1946, the now Michelin-starred joint is one of the first noodle shops in the city. Today, it takes on a more contemporary look and location; but it continues to attract loyal customers with their signature wonton noodles. Order a bowl and indulge in the well-loved combo of fresh, sweet soup, springy noodles, and plump dumplings!

Mak's Noodle (Main Branch)


Hong Kong, China, People's Republic • Recommendation • a year ago

One of Hong Kong’s most famous noodle places, Mak’s Noodle is a long-standing establishment with its roots harking as far back as 1968. The wonton noodles are the superstar here but we’ll be honest, the helpings are smaller than what we’re used to. Luckily, their menu also features a selection of toasted noodles to whet the appetite! We recommend you have it with beef brisket, chutney pork, or oyster sauce and shrimp.

Sang Kee Congee Shop


Hong Kong, China, People's Republic • Recommendation • a year ago

Sang Kee Congee Shop follows the traditional way of preparing congee. They slow-cook the rice porridge with high-quality ingredients before putting it on high heat. Their special fish congees are a must; the flaky fillets are the perfect complement to the full-flavored soup! Portions are generous—just one fix will keep you running for hours.

Tasty Congee & Noodle Wantun Shop (Central)


Hong Kong, China, People's Republic • Recommendation • a year ago

Braving the queue to Tasty Congee & Noodle Wantun Shop will be worth it as soon as you savor their crowd-favorite congee and wonton noodle soup! The brand is run by the son of Ho Chiu Hung (founder of Ho Kung Kee), and he pays homage to his father by keeping the same soup goodness from the original shop! They also have a scrumptious Beef Hor Fun (牛肉河, beef and rice noodle stir-fry), for the days when you prefer a dry noodle option.

Congee and Noodle Shop


Hong Kong, China, People's Republic • Recommendation • a year ago

Just like its name, Congee and Noodle Shop keeps it simple with a no-frills attitude. The restaurant lets its famous creamy congees (made by a chef with over 30 years of experience) speak for themselves. Try their best-selling fresh crab congee or salted pork ribs congee with bitter melon; or opt to build your own unique combo with add-ons of your choice! Local celebrities often drop by here for a quick comfort food fix. Keep an eye out and you may just see them whip up a bowl of their own!

Lau Sum Kee Noodle (Fuk Wing Street)


Hong Kong, China, People's Republic • Recommendation • a year ago

Lau Sum Kee Noodle wins diners over by making their noodles from scratch! They use a bamboo pole to knead the dough to create well-textured noodles. Wontons are also freshly made in-shop, and consist of a perfectly seasoned mix of pork and shrimp. Pro-tip: the pickled turnips are unsung heroes! The condiments come with every table. Put a spoonful into your soup for a refreshing crunch!

Trusty Congee King (Wan Chai)


Hong Kong, China, People's Republic • Recommendation • a year ago

Trusty Congee King is a favorite amongst locals for its fish-based bowls of rice porridge. Their congee is cooked in fish broth (sans the funky smell, of course) for an extra layer of umami! Enjoy any of their seafood bowls; the congee with scallop and pork liver, in particular is a winner! Spoil yourself with a helping of their sticky rice dumplings which are made of 70% mung bean and 30% sticky rice. Be quick though, it runs out fast!


7 Heard Street, Wan Chai, Hong Kong
