HK2: Lau Sum Kee Noodles 劉森記麺家

Ha zi lo mein - dry noodles with dried shrimp roe
Hurray! Ha zi lo mein (蝦子撈麵) from Lau Sum Kee (劉森記麺家) – the famous bamboo cane-pressed noodles with dried shrimp roe. I absolutely love the “QQ” consistency of the noodles. So springy, so smooth and tasty (hubby was less impressed, but he’s never been fond of dried shrimp aromas).

This was one of my personal must-try places on my list of eateries in Hong Kong. It’s also recommended in the HKTB’s Local Delicacies Guide and a firm favourite of Hong Kong food columnist Chua Lam.

Lau Sum Kee is at Sham Shui Po
We made a special trip to Sham Shui Po just for this. From Sham Shui Po MRT take Exit D2 and walk down Kweilin Street for about five minutes and you’ll see the shop on the right. Look for the Chinese characters as there is no English on any of its signboards.

It's a very humble shop with barely 8 tables
It’s an unusually humble setting for such a famous eatery. Barely ten tables, and you are expected to share tables during peak hours. We were there around 3-4pm and managed to get our own.

The menu at Lau Sum Kee
If you can read Chinese/Cantonese, this is the menu. Prices range from HK$20-35. There’s lots of the basic noodles paired with toppings like shrimp dumplings, braised beef brisket, pork knuckle and fish slices. If you’re brave, order it with goose intestines and beef tripe!
