Tsim Chai Kee Michelin Bib Gourmand Noodles, Best in Hong Kong?


Tsim Chai Kee or Mak’s Noodles – that was the question we had to decide. After doing research on the best wanton noodles in Hong Kong, these are the two that seemed to be at the top of most of the reviews. Since we have tried Mak’s Noodles in Singapore, we decided that we should try the Tsim Chai Kee wanton noodles which received a Bib Gourmand award in the 2019 Michelin Guide Hong Kong. With limited time and meals, our quest was to try to find the best wanton noodles in Hong Kong.

Yat Lok Roast Goose HK – One Michelin Star restaurant


Perhaps it is a case of the forbidden fruit. Many friends we know make a beeline for roast goose whenever they are in Hong Kong. It is hard to find roast goose in Singapore as the import of goose into Singapore is strictly regulated. According to a Straits Times story, there are still a few places to eat roast goose in Singapore. Many Singaporeans get their roast goose fix whenever they are in Hong Kong. Yung Kee, Kam’s Roast and Yat Lok are places that often come to mind. The latter two have received one Michelin star each in the Michelin Guide 2019. We decided to go to Yat Lok Roast Goose HK at Stanley Street to try their goose and roast pork. Yat Lok has been run by the Chu family since 1957 and at this Central HK location since 2011.
