What are Hong Kong Cart Noodles 車仔麵? (嗱喳麵)

Cart Noodles.

A steaming bowl of noodles, served in a light soy based broth with 3 toppings of your choice.

It sounds simple, but it’s really not. Each strand of noodles leaves a lingering taste of egg; the signature of all freshly made noodles. The broth, while subtle in flavor and depth, creates a smooth balance between the rich, almost-creamy-in-texture braised meats and the soft chewy al dente noodles.

You’re not just eating noodles either. With each bite of noodle, each slurp of the broth, you’re experiencing a bit of Hong Kong’s culture through one of their oldest and culturally iconic known noodles dishes.
