On my last day in Hong Kong last January, I didn't really have lots of time before I had to board my flight back home. I was just wandering around central, waiting for the shops to open so I could do a bit of last minute shopping. So, there I was in the backstreets of Hong Kong. I passed by a lot of markets and restaurants. I was actually trying to find a particular Yum Cha place, but things didn't go as planned.
I stumbled upon a small noodle shop that had a lot of articles posted right by the front door. Newspaper articles, magazine features, and food guide ones as well. I decided to go in and give it a go. As I passed by the diners, they all seemed to have some sort of meatballs in their soup. I had a quick look at the menu, and decided that I wanted a bowl of fish ball noodle soup too.
These fish balls were huge and rustic. They had a nice bite to them. They had spring onions and some other things inside, they were good! The noodles were not far off as well. I enjoyed them both so much. It probably has to be the best bowl of noodle soup on that particular visit to Hong Kong.
