Er what this review lacks in terms of pictorial food porn Mui Kee makes up for with its amazing congee! This is located on the topmost floor of a wet market. Get past the stinky fishy stalls and you'll be rewarded with a piping hot bowl of tasty tasty congee. We had the century egg + pickled pork congee and it came with really huge chunks of century egg. Also get urself a side or two of dough fritters that are SUPER crispy which makes them superb for dunking in the congee since they don't get soggy easily.

I was rather unimpressed though this has been awarded 1 Michelin star. Too little meat on the goose! Where there was meat, the meat was quite tough. The char siew on the other hand was chunky, sweet and fatty 😋 There's a minimum spending of something like 45HKD per person but that works out to 1 plate of roast meat rice per customer so I don't think it's a problem.

Just the best beef brisket noodles I've ever had. Very tender beef brisket and slippery rice noodles (thin kway teow) in a delicious stock. Slurped it all up! You can opt for flat noodles, which is basically mee pok. My friends did so and said that their mee pok was super gd cause al dente ~ hahahaha.

Check out the crowd. We queued for slightly over an hour (but we were lame and went on the Fathers' Day Sunday) and queuing is orderly because it's by a number system. Remember to approach the staff to get a queue number once you arrive!! Everything is great~ oh this place doesn't serve liusha buns. That item that sounds like it isn't it - they are custard buns (top rightmost). The 咸水角 here are crisper than the ones at Dim Dim Sum and don't contain wasabi but they are "hollower" (not that it shld matter, unless you think like my pals ~ quality over quantity guys!) the beef balls are very 鲜 (I don't mean fishy) but they are more starchy than those at Dim Dim Sum. The cheong fun (not pictured :() was soooo smooth and soft and slippery 😋 Siu mai (has crab roe!!) and har gao were great as always. Heh. The rightmost photo in the 2nd row features chilled mango wrapped in a glutinous rice skin coated with coconut. Something like a chilled mango ondeh ondeh. The staff recommended this and it was the best palate cleanser!

The polo buns were amazing! Beyond the fluffy and slightly chewy warm exterior lies a buttery sweet fillling with chunks of tart pineapple. 🍍🍍🍍 These were so good especially served and eaten fresh. The usual dim sum suspects like siu mai, beef balls (quite uncommon in Singapore), char siew buns and har gao were yummy. I personally love the chewiness of 咸水角 so I liked that too (note the ones here have a wasabi kick to them) but my friends didn't fancy them cause they are hollow. 🙄 The radish cake is nice and soft, and is studded with chunks of radish. 👍🏼 The cute items ie mushroom buns and pig liusha buns were great for sprucing up the spread but were a disappointment in terms of taste.

Dropped by for brekkie because this was really near our Airbnb apartment. (In my humble opinion... don't bother with Airbnb in HK because it doesn't seem to be much cheaper than hotels + we had an insane time locating our apartment due to the obscurity of the street signs.) HK breakfast sets are HUGE! I had the satay beef noodles, which is nothing like satay in Singapore. It tasted more like sliced beef stir fried in oyster sauce. But it was not bad! This came with toast + eggs (you get to choose between scrambled and sunny side up) and a beverage. I thought the scrambled eggs here were really good!! Texture-wise, they were also gooey like ADC's... In fact, I'd say they were creamier! And more importantly, less salty (though still a tad saltier than I would have liked). This place also has a more extensive menu but only the breakfast sets are available in the morning.

Highly raved about for its scrambled eggs, we dragged our tired bodies to try it the day we arrived in HK. I ordered the Tea Set which comes with toast + eggs (scrambled or sunny side up) and ham, soupy spaghetti (or macaroni) with slightly sweet slices of char siew/pork chop, and a choice of milk tea or coffee. Sorry I honestly can't rmb the prices of food I had in HK because they contain too many digits. 😳 Though the scrambled eggs were nice and gooey (definitely above average texture wise), they were too salty for our tastes. The spaghetti was typical HK cafe stuff. Gotta admit this was underwhelming given our expectations. BUT the place was bustling even at 9pm and we have SO MANY friends who swear by it. I'll be back to try the steamed milk or egg pudding, which is another popular item. ☺️
