Hong Kong – Sun Kee Cheese Noodles 新記餐廳: Irresistible Cheesy Goodness

Leave a comment

Sun Kee Cheese Noodles 新記餐廳It’s such a simple dish of instant noodles, grilled pork neck and cheese sauce, but it remained on my mind after I tasted it for the first time. Now it’s the first thing I scoot to once I land in Hong Kong. Call it comfort food :)

Nestled deep in Champagne Court, neighbourhood cha chan teng (teahouse) Sun Kee is quite a legend for its signature grilled pork neck with instant noodles dribbled in a specially concocted blend of cheese sauce. Don’t let the building appearance scare you – there’s plenty of good food and 2nd-hand camera shops hidden within.

Go straight to the end of the alley after Dadol Hotel then turn left to find the golden goodness…of cheese noodles

Voila – Sun Kee!
They have a shop in Tsim Sha Tsui and another in Wan Chai, but I usually go to this one in TST since it’s near my shopping haunts.

The shop seats only 20 and is always crowded, so don’t be surprised if you are asked to dap toi (share a table). It’s a Hong Kong culture, and sometimes you get friendly locals who will tell you more good places to eat/visit so I am usually happy to share tables.

Sun Kee has won over many fans, including a giant following of local celebrities as seen from the photos plastered all over the shop. Try spotting your favourite HK star when you are there *wink*

Ordering is a no-brainer for the first time – definitely the cheese noodles with grilled pork neck (top left)!

Other items on the menu. I am always intrigued with HK beverages such as boiled Coke, Coke/Seven-Up with lemon and watercress with honey. And I can never understand how they can make a teahouse culture out of instant noodles, luncheon meat and just buttered bread.

My perennial HK beverage – the silky smooth yuan yang (mix of coffee, tea – and me!)

Nothing beats the fragrant grilled pork neck, but why not try something different if you are with a few friends.

The owner definitely loves his dogs, and I always check this ‘wall of fame’ behind the cashier for new photos of the pooches. Try Sun Kee the next time you visit Hong Kong! :)
