Step into this 70s style eatery for a taste of its boat noodles. There are seven variations to tuck into, all as authentic as any from Thailand. While portions aren’t huge, it’s seriously cheap – each bowl starts from $25. The soup base is brewed using fresh pork bone to give it its rich flavour (and it’s not overly salty). The restaurant's not stingy with other ingredients either. The signature pork boat noodles come with pig’s liver, pork belly and loads of other herbs. The curry brisket noodles and Hainanese chicken rice aren’t shabby either.
Boat noodles are a staple of Thai street food. While each restaurant has its own secret recipe – passed down from generation to generation – the essence of any boat noodles dish is its broth, made from soy-braising sauce and pig’s blood, as well as tons of spices. It’s the perfect antidote for when you crave a taste of Thailand. We slurp our way around the city to pick out the five best boat noodles in Hong Kong.
