Wing Wah Noodle Shop (Hong Kong)

Located at 89 Hennessy Road, Wan Chai in Hong Kong

Wonton noodle restaurants are commonplace to see in Hong Kong but none has as long a history and is as classic as the one called Wing Wah Noodle Shop that resides on Hennessy Road in Wan Chai, Hong Kong.

At first, I didn’t even notice this restaurant much (as there was also no English name to its signage), but upon closer look, I noticed that the front of the restaurant is posted with a picture of the Michelin Man with some text.  The place couldn’t be half bad if that was displayed so we went in for some lunch.

We sat right by the front where there were old photos of celebrities dining at the restaurant

Michelin & menu & posters

The restaurant itself is classic old-style Hong Kong where the tables are small, the menus are seen underneath a sheet of glass on the tabletop, the servers have worked there for decades, and the menu simply focuses on wonton noodles and dumplings of sorts.  It’s really neat to eat in these establishments because it’s a remnant of how Hong Kong people used to eat and continue to dine in now.  No frills.

Shrimp Wonton Noodle. HKD $38

Braised Beef Tendon & Brisket with rice noodles. HKD $42

We ordered some classics.  I absolutely ordered the Shrimp Wonton Noodle that had a ‘thumbs up’ next to it.  My mom ordered the Braised Beef Tendon & Brisket with rice noodles.

The bowls are not mega large and at first, when my bowl of Shrimp Wonton Noodle arrived, I was amused to see that all the wontons were hidden under the mound of noodle.  I had to dig them out to see the following view in the second photo.

 

 

Vegetables with Oyster Sauce. HKD $30

The shrimp wontons weren’t spectacular but I liked the handmade noodles.  (The pictures also made the bowls look super tiny than they actually were.)

We also ordered a plate of vegetables with oyster sauce.

I enjoy these old-style and traditional wonton places. 🙂
