Tai Po is one of 18 districts of Hong long’s New Territory’s, and we came here to explore, discover and eat at their famous (well to locals at least) “Tai Po Hui Cooked Food Centre”. It’s akin to Singapore’s hawker style markets and scratches many itches from dim sim, Cantonese barbecue, congee, noodles, wonton, Indian & even Thai. Just like it’s hawker market cousin’s, food is served from little mom and pop style booths, each specialising in one thing. Queues are a plenty and it’s buzzing!
We stopped off at this little place first which is famous for their fried pork chops and chicken wings. We couldn’t resist trying some of their carb items too, so ordered some of their shredded pork bamboo noodles and wonton noodles.
The bamboo pork noods were a mush too and were totally overwhelmed by the damp earthy flavour of the bamboo shoots. The smell alone galvanised my taste buds to shut down and say no. Grubstance rating 1/5
When did I go? Nov 2016
The damage: Expect to pay $6 per head (£6ish)
The good: There’s enough combinations to keep you a happy diner here, soup noodles, dry noodles, surf n turf. Or just get both, it’s cheap enough. Oh and if butter is your thing..
The bad: Not much as this price.
Would I go again? Maybe
