The One With On Lee Noodle – An Authentic Hong Kong Experience

It was totally a spur of the moment kind of thing that I went to On Lee Noodle at Shau Kei Wan for lunch one working day. I have never heard of that place before, but my colleagues were singing praises of the noodle restaurant. It was a bit out of the way from our Causeway Bay office, but I could see why the place was popular.

Since it was a rushed lunch, I ordered a bit of everything – beef brisket, with fish cake and fish ball. The beef was surprisingly tender and tasty, went well with soy-sauce noodle which was mixed just to the right degree (without getting overly oily). The fish cakes and fish balls were crunchy though can be a bit on the bland side if eaten on their own without other stronger-tasting dishes.

The entire time I was there (all 30 minutes of it), the place was bustling with customers (so be prepared to share your table with stranges… the way most Hong Kong-ers do). I did some search online on what makes this place popular, and discovered that I missed some of the restaurant highlights! That include fish fillet head rice noodles, the fiery homemade chilly sauce and condensed milk and butter toast.

Can’t imagine how I could mix all those in one seating, so I reckon On Lee Noodle is best appreciated with multiple return visits.
