There are lots of eatery in Hong Kong that does not have an English name. 文記車仔麵 Boon Kee Cart Noodle is one of them. When you look at the signage, you see only traditional Chinese Characters in Red on white background. Anyway …
You will spot a board with its shop name and followed by lots of Chinese character near the entrance. This is the menu. The consolation here is you need not worry bout the menu as it is not needed. Unless you want to calculate the sum to ensure your order was correctly billed.
Instead, join the queue and start choosing your ingredients by pointing to the server what you want. That’s what we do.
First of all, decide what type of noodles do you want. Choices available are instant noodles, handmade noodle, thick or thin noodles, thick rice noodle, think rice noodle, mian xian, sweet potato noodle and a few others that I don’t know what were they.
Now, you are ready to point to them over the ingredients according to your choice.
Take a seat and soon your bowl of piping hot noodle will be served to you.
If you need some greens, you could order them at the counter while you are ordering your noodle. All the greens were poached and generous amount of fermented bean sauce will be scooped onto your noodle. Mixed it and enjoy.
Inexpensive noodles, enjoyable when you manage to spot and chose the ingredients that you like. As one of the diners got pork lard which he mistaken for some fried stuff. That kind of ruin his meal as it isn’t an ingredient he enjoyed, in fact it was an ingredient he dislike.
