The One With Traditional Chinese Noodle

What is it about Chinese and their tendency to pick-and-match their food? There is this distinct food culture in Hong Kong where you get to fix your meal the way you want from a variety of food and condiments.

It is something like “chap chye peng” in Singapore, only better.

The way to do it is this. You choose the main soup base you want, and then add on whatever you wish at incremental prices. The end result can be fascinatingly delicious… or atrociously laughable. It helps, of course, if you read Chinese.

You could go for something simple like clear soup noodle with sliced beef.

Or a little on the spicy side, with fish balls.

Or even go to the extreme with this five-chillies ramen-like concoction.

For a price range of HK$40-HK$60, this is a bowl of Hong Kong experience you should definitely indulge in. Where to find them? Almost everywhere, though I must the better ones I tried were always on the Kowloon side.

Tuck in.
