Beef brisket noodles
Tender beef brisket served with noodles and fragrant, meaty broth. This is the ultimate Hong Kong comfort food. And Kau Kee is the most famous place to eat it. The soup can be a bit oily for some but that’s what makes it so tasty - as they say, fat is flavour. Be warned, the queues can start before the place opens so it’s best to go outside of normal mealtimes. If you don’t want to wait, nearby Sang Kee and Sister Wah also do good beef brisket noodles.
Slow-cooked beef brisket in broth, or the slightly more unusual curry, with either rice noodles (ho fun) or egg noodles (e-fu). Try the beef tendon, it's melt-in-your-mouth delicious.
