Tong Kee offers as many as 38 kinds of Vermicelli Rice Noodle Rolls, which come, slippery, soft, smooth, and see-through, steaming hot from the kitchen. A bit tough for Westerners to pick up with chopsticks, this dish is a Cantonese favorite!
Closed on horse racing days (Wednesday and Sunday), this locale is perfect for quick, cheap eats and is always crowded. Expect to wait, even up until closing time around 2AM. It is very informal, with a true local feel to it; there are no doors, which give it a certain open-air quality. It’s about the food, not the surroundings.
Dishes include Pork Bone Congee with Dried Bok Choy (yes, the bone is in there, be careful not to bite it!), as well as classics like Roasted Pork Rice Noodle Rolls, and exotic combinations such as Duck and Pork Liver Rice Noodle Roll.
Expect to spend less than $50 total per person. Rolls are ~$13-20HKD
