Hong Kong: Best "wonton shrimp roe bamboo lo mien"
- FourSeasons Feb 6, 2009 05:21 AM
CharlesYu's thread "In Search of Best wonton noodle" has gathered quite huge interest from fellow chowhounders. While I still like the classic wonton noodle, my own preference is wonton shrimp roe dry bamboo noodle 雲吞蝦子撈麵 (竹升) since I thought I have the best wonton noodle (in this version) on my recent trip to Macau at Luk Kee 六記. The texture of the noodle is slightly bouncy, shrimp roe has good flavor with generous serving, the wonton skin is thin and slippery.
Since I will be going to Hong Kong again soon, I just want to check with fellow hounds where you think the best wonton noodle of this version is in Hong Kong. Thanks in advanced for any comment.

Your reply is really fast. I was just going to edit my opening statement that it seem to be hard to find bamboo noodle in Hong Kong and before I even write it, your reply has filled in the gap. So do both Wing Wah and Lau Shum Kee only offer bamboo style?
I have not tried 祥記, but according to my Macau friend, 祥記 is being flooded by Hong Kong visitors due to its better location but the real deal is in 六記.
劉森記. They has opened a new branch last year, which is a street away from their old shop. Both are located near the MTR Shamshuipo station. Enjoy, and welcome to Hong Kong.
