One popular local dish you must try in Hong Kong is the Cantonese-style noodles. There is a large amount of noodle restaurants all around Hong Kong, but there is one restaurant that stands out for me, Wing Kee noodles. This place is in Causeway Bay and is hard to miss due to its long lines around lunchtime. One unique feature of Cantonese-style noodles is the fact that you can choose the type of noodles and pick up to 3 toppings, ranging from a variety of meats, vegetables, and organs (which include intestines, skin, or tendons), to include in your bowl of soup.
The place itself is not the fanciest spot in Hong Kong, but it is a good representation of how local restaurants feel and a perfect place to experience eating like Hong Kongers do. The dish itself is absolutely delicious: the savoury umami broth complements the noodles really well. I recommend that you try out the beef brisket, it was the best topping I chose out of the three; it was tender and well-marinated with flavours oozing out with every bite.
Another good thing about Wing Kee is the price, it is affordable by the standard of Causeway Bay, meaning that you can get a bowl of noodles for about HKD30-50 (depending on the toppings you choose). All in all, this is a restaurant you do not want to miss out on during your stay in Hong Kong.
