Hong Kong: Tasty Congee & Wantun Noodle Shop 正斗粥麵專家

11 Sep

Let’s face it, airports are never a destination of choice for food as airport food is often expensive and insipid. But if you are ever transiting in Hong Kong International Airport, please do yourself a favour and check out 正斗 (you won’t see the English name so just look out for that). I randomly ordered the Wanton Mee, not knowing that it was famous for it. It was actually a good bowl of wanton mee, much better than what I expected and even better than some of the supposed famous wanton mees in town. The noodles and wantons were good, the broth wasn’t overly salty and even the portion was just right. To wash it down I had a Honey Osmanthus Tea, which was delicious and very cooling too. With that in my belly I was ready for another round of insipid airplane food.

Price: $
Location: 7/F, Departures East Hall, Terminal 1, Hong Kong International Airport. They have other branches in the city, including IFC Mall.

    Glad to see Tasty Congee does it right even at HKIA. I just posted about the Happy Valley one which was also great.

    I have been to and will probably revisit most of the cities you’ve reviewed so far (more Singapore please), so keep up the good work!

        I have to say HKIA really is the best in terms of food both before and after security, they got the variety and everything down. Sorry, better than Changi too :P

        Sure, I created a restaurant review index, so you can easily see what you want to eat…the stuff on my “to try” list should also be good!

        Come again soon!

    […] overrated. I actually think you can find better/other good wanton mees elsewhere in Hong Kong. 正斗 which I wrote about is pretty good […]
