A list of my favorite 米线 that I always eat when in Hong Kong!

Newly found favorite vermicelli located at Aberdeen, Hong Kong! It's spring roll is so delish you won't believe it. It was a mixture of fishball and shrimps mashed up together to give it a unique texture. The soup was well balanced, not too sour or spicy just the right mix. The table also has its own freaking spicy belachan looking chilli that burns with every scoop. Sorry I just have to find chili in everything I eat but this is really good stuff not to be missed! It also has a branch in Mongkok!

A kind of common food found in Hong Kong despite not being very local. There are a few major brands of restaurants selling the same thing at around the same price tasting almost the same, difference isn't huge to tourists but makes a world of difference to locals in terms of their soup, meat and veggies provided. At 30 HKD, this is one food that the office crowd eat during lunch time as it is filling and provides good food at a relatively cheap price. Rice vermicelli were pretty standard but the soup was really nice to drink! Another special part about hk is the choices they offer with their food. They allowed the choice of sour spicy or numb spicy(酸辣/麻辣), degree of spiciness and also a variety of add ons, again from all kinds of meat to all kinds of balls... Overall it was pretty good and I would always eat it when I'm really hungry.

Chicken wings with spicy rice vermicelli, this bowl offered me a greater kick as I ordered medium spicy this time round and I couldn't even finish it. Pretty good meal for lunch as one would end up sweating feeling full and satisfied!

Recommended to be eaten in twos with the 48 HKD set where it comes with assorted add ons such as sliced pork, minced pork, sliced chicken, beef, fried toufu skin, fishballs, squid balls, bean sprouts, salted vegetables and some vegetables. Soup can look deceivingly plain but filled with goodness!

This bowl of vermicelli looks deceptively normal... But it was filled with so much surprises! First, it's chili was just the right amount of spiciness for most people, second the tofu was slightly sweet and helped in equalizing the taste! Lastly, the vermicelli was so tender and chewy and it really stood out from the other chain vermicelli stores out on the streets!

Introducing the surprise find of the day, cold noodles! Served with carrot bits, nata de coco, Ham strips, crab sticks strips along with fresh lychees, cucumbers and a little wasabi, was this delicious yummy fusion bowl of noodles that can be found in many foodie areas in Hong Kong! It was a cold, sweet and yet spicy(wasabi) kind of dish and the lychee juices helped it achieve a very unique cooling taste! The owners were winners of an entrepreneurship TV show and gosh this was good stuff at $22 HKD!
