Kau Kee Beef Noodles House Review

Rating: 3.5/5 (its just for the good beef soup broth and nothing else) but if you are used to Taiwan beef noodles, then you might want to give this a miss.
Atmosphere:  Expect to share tables. Its a small restaurant with fast table turnover.  Not much elbow space for eating. Sitting can be quite uncomfortable but most people there just eat and leave. If you experience a long queue during lunch, your waiting time is quite short.  There was no queue for dinner. 
Menu: Available in Mandarin. Famous for their beef noodles soup, curry soup and some say milk tea. You can select the type of noodles, “mee kia” or “mee fen” or more formally  known as vermicelli, e fu, flat or rice noodles. You can also order just curry sauce alone to go with your noodle soup. The portions are small.
Service:  Food comes relatively fast and service is efficient and brisk.
Average Price: HKD 50
Directions:
Exit E2 at Sheung Wan MTR. 5 min walk from the exit.

This is how the shop front looks:

Lets get down to the food.

The noodles are average, the broth is tasty for HK style beef noodle standard. But to me, this is typical of good beef broth, I won’t recommend this if you are tight on time.

If you order curry sauce for the taste of it. It will come a small bowl and you can dip your beef inside.

Curry sauce is delicious for the Hong Kong style of curry. If you are into Indian type of spiced curry, then you may not like this. Or if you are used to Malaysian type, then it could be a hit or miss.  I don’t really know how to describe the HK style of curry, its not sweet like Japanese, its not like the typical hainan curry in Singapore, its different.

The milk tea was ok.

IMG_1416[1]I read on Wikipedia that this shop has 90 years of history and ex Chief Executive Donald Tsang and famous actor Tony Leung patronize the shop.

That is pretty amazing. Its not easy for any restaurant to survive that long.
