永華雲吞麵家 Wing Wah Noodle House .......... Wan Ton Noodle Specialist in Hong Kong Wan Chai



I haven't been the kind of person that likes to chat with taxi drivers but who else knows the best street foods than taxi drivers who have been prowling the streets all day long. My "half baked" Cantonese, caused some sniggering from HY and my sis-in-law but I still manage to get the taxi driver to reveal a gem of a restaurant in Wanchai, Wing Wah Noodle House. At about 11pm the place was still quite packed with people.

Red Bean Puree cooked with orange peel 陳皮紅豆沙 (HK$18)
My BIL though this was good but quickly added that
my MIL's version was comparable.


Fresh Walnut Paste 生磨核桃露(HK$27)
Walnut paste that was ground to a tasty smoothness.


Fresh Walnut Paste with Dumpling 生磨核桃露湯丸 (HK$33)
Walnut paste with 3 extra peanut filled dumplings.


Coconut Milk with Mango and Sago 鮮椰汁芒果珍珠露 (HK$33)
The rich coconut milk with a tinge of saltiness went
well with the sweet mango and sago cubes


While we were enjoying our dessert, we saw many people ordering hot steaming wan ton noodles that smell and looked delicious. We vow to return for the noodles. Wing Wah is known for their wan ton noodles too!

Shrimp Wan Ton Noodle 鮮蝦雲吞麵 (HK$27)
We can't help but peep at other people's wan ton noodle glistening
in the soup. So, we return for our own. The hand-made noodle were
spring-ily tasty. The wan ton were alright though.


Shrimp Dumpling Noodle 鮮蝦水餃麵 (HK$29)
Instead of having only wan ton noodles, we ordered a
Shrimp Dumpling Noodle. I thought the Shrimp
Dumpings were better than the wan tons.


Home made noodle for more than half a century.........
Mr. Lang has been making his hand made noodles with the bambo pole
for more than 50 years. It's no wonder his noodles were so "QQ"
(QQ is a colloquial for springiness or tanginess)


Wing Wah is listed as one of the Hong Kong Michelin Guide Budget Restaurant in 2009 for their culinary expertise in noodles and desserts.

Address : 89 Hennessy Road, Ground floor, Wanchai, Hong Kong

Slurp, it seems that you like teochew style noodles. Perhaps you may try Lau Sum Kee Noodle in Shum Shui Po? It's very good. Try their shrimp roe noodles, very delish!

Here's the link: http://www.openrice.com/restaurant/sr2.htm?shopid=10414, you may get the address from the website. The easiest way to go to Shum Shui Po is by MTR.

The 陳皮紅豆沙 looks very delicious.

How would you compare Wing Wah to Mak's? Just tried Mak's 2 weeks ago, was good but didn't really blow me away. Which places in HK would you recommend for the best wonton mee & congee?
