Hong Kong - Best Beef Flat Noodle/Gan Chao Niu He?

yeah, I miss good old fashioned borscht as well! I love both the Russian and Slavic versions. My dad's family grew up on Russian style and our chef was able to recreate it, but I never got her recipe before she passed away! If anyone has a good one, I'd love to get a copy =)

Hong Kong - Best Beef Flat Noodle/Gan Chao Niu He?

gosh, I'm not sure bc I was talking to my aunt the whole time (met her for the first time) that I forgot to grab a business card!! I know it was in IFC somewhere...according to the directory it looks like either Cuisine Cuisine or Lei Garden. However, based on the plating pics from the directory I would guess Lei Garden.

on a completely unrelated note, thanks again to everyone who educated me about braised pomelo skin! I had never heard of it until last week on CH and I ate it last night...WOW DELICIOUS!! I really want to learn how to make it now ;)

Ooh, I love when it's "greaseless" and fusion sounds .. interesting. I like to cook fusion, but I prefer restaurants to be traditional. Charles, have you tried Ball Kee? I'd like to get your thoughts on that. Sounds like it's a battle between Tasty and Ball Kee! I never go by tour book recs, which are mostly written by non-locals anyway >.<

Hong Kong - Best Beef Flat Noodle/Gan Chao Niu He?

Hi Hounds,

I've been in HK for 30 hours now and can't believe I didn't think of this earlier!! Can anyone recommend the best "gan chao niu he" (sorry I only know how to pronounce is in Mandarin)? It's the dish with sauteed beef and onions with wide flat rice noodles.

On another note, yesterday I did try Australia Dairy Company and Yee Shun Milk Company back to back. I much prefer the steamed ginger milk pudding at Yee Shun, so thank you to all who suggested it in another thread! I also tried Mak's Noodle, the one next to ADC which boasts pictures with Bourdain all over their restaurant. They do have an amazing broth and the smell completely envelopes you when you walk in, but the actual wonton was lacking in shrimpy goodness. I later heard from a friend that the wonton shop next door is actually better (and most likely also less pricey)...

Thanks!!

Hong Kong: Foodie gift recommendations?

I was thinking of the same thing, but aside from anything packaged quite well and expensive, all I could come up with was a box of dan ta. I'm curious to see what others think on this!!

agreed!! and while I'm at it: can anyone recommend a good pho place? I prefer southern style to northern/Hanoi. Absolutely NO lemons lol (only limes for me)...but pho is better than no pho, and I'll bring my own limes if I must. ;)

Hi yall,

Apologies if this topic has already been covered, but I tried to do a search beforehand and didn't find anything...so here goes!

Are there any good Taiwanese stalls or restaurants in Singapore? Both breakfast items (both sweet and salty dou jiang, shao bing, you tiao, fan tuan, etc) and standard fare?

I've never been to Singapore before and will be visiting for the first time this summer and can't wait to try all the great recs I see from other posts. Most notably, shot outs to: klyeoh, huiray, fourseasons, and m_gomez for their thorough reviews.

Thanks!

Geylang Late Night Must Eats

yes, actually there are terrific lamb skewers in Flushing (NYC)! of course they also have beef and chicken, but I've never tried them. there are several carts but my fav is the one outside of Citibank (I forget the cross streets)
