I’ve been under the weather the past few days, with a sore throat that turned into a nasty cold with a hacking cough. Fortunately, I wasn’t too ill to do my events in Singapore, but now I’m resting for a day. And, mirabile dictu (have you learned that phrase yet?), one of my hosts here told me that one of the best beef brisket noodle joints in Hong Kong was right around the corner from my hotel.
I ventured out, and after a three minute walk was at Kau Kee, which specializes in this dish:
Tons of beef brisket in a rich broth loaded with chewy E-Fu noodles. What a treat! Within seconds I was slurping the noodles with the locals (contrary to the link above, there were no tourists there). You don’t linger in a place like this: with a Chinese soup spoon in one hand and chopsticks in the other, you slurp, gobble, pay, and run.
Here’s a video of the two most famous brisket noodle places in Hong Kong, including Kau Kee:
I’m jumping the gun as I haven’t finished my Singapore food posts yet, but this is a one-off.
