Wanton Mee and Dumpling Soup
This one Michelin Star wanton restaurant 雲吞麺 has been on our list for a while, but we never quite made it here during our last couple of trips. This time, we made it here for dinner!
At 6pm on a Saturday evening, it was quite crowded but still had some empty seats, and we were seated immediately 🙂
The environment was rather posh, and so the prices were rather upscale as well, with some abalone porridge going for HKD 300+! The dim sum prices were not too cheap either. Hence, we decided to stick to the basics and ordered a large Wanton Soup with Noodles (HKD 56+) and Shrimp Dumpling Soup (HKD 58+). Tea was HKD 3+ per person, with additional 10% service charge imposed.
Our food came quickly, and we were a bit surprised at the size of the bowl… Rather tiny? Gotta say that the wantons were quite flavourful and delicious, but the shrimp dumplings were quite bland, despite all the extra ingredients 😦 The soup was not bad, just a tad too pepperish. The noodles were very disappointing, as it was not at all springy, and it fact, quite tough to bite. The only redeeming point was that the thin noodles did not grow fat after soaking in the soup for a long time.
We could not believe that this was so-called Michelin Star standard!
Anyway, posh did not mean good service as well. The girls at the table next to us found worm when they were close to finishing their plate of vegetables, and when they complained to a waitress, she was like.. “So? Change another plate for you?” We also overheard the manager saying that since they almost finished the food, they had to pay for it. But the girls also did not appear to be those that would pay without a fight, and they were saying that no way they would pay for it! Not too sure who won the battle in the end, but we didn’t hear any quarrels from the payment counter. This was also not a place to linger, for our bowls were cleared very quickly after we were done, giving us a very clear and not-so-subtle hint to leave this place.
For this price, we are definitely not coming back again!
