Hong Kong Street Chun Tat Kee @ Ang Mo Kio
I frequent Hong Kong Street Chun Kee at Blk 151 Ang Mo Kio quite often. But it’s always just having their fish head bee hoon for dinner. So during my hatch day, the initial plan was to go back to Chun Kee for a feast with my family. But just a few days before that, a friend of mine introduced me to Hong Kong Street Chun Tat Kee at Blk 339 Ang Mo Kio, so I decided to bring my family here instead.
Now I don’t exactly know what is the story behind Hong Kong Street and who is the original master for this brand. If someone can enlighten me, that will be great. But I just assuming that the disciples learnt the skills from the master and set up their own brand, hence many stalls are same same but different. Chun Tat Kee has 10 outlets around the island, with their first outlet in Balestier.
I knew the aunty loves coffee pork ribs, but I wanted something different so we tried the salted egg pork ribs eventually. The pork ribs were deep fried and coated with salted egg yolk, they meld together beautifully, with flavours playing off each other.
Everyone in the family was singing praises about their Prawn Paste Chicken ($9 / $13). Deep-fried till a golden crisp, sink your teeth into the crackling skin and enjoy the juicy meat within. The flesh is tender and the burst of flavor hits upon the palate. Drizzle some lime to enhance the experience. Even my mother loves it that she took a second piece.
Their Fish Head Bee Hoon Soup ($6/ $10 / $15) is a signature across all Hong Kong Street cze char stalls. Honestly I prefer the one from Chun Kee because the soup is more flavourful and they are more generous with the XO.
However, their San Lou Hor Fun ($5.50 / $10 / $15) was better than the Chun Kee’s version. Though the wok taste might not be quite distinctive but the texture of horfun was smooth and flavorful with a generous bit of beansprouts and good portion of fresh tasting fish slices.
My favourite is their Thai Style Beancurd ($9, $13). Made with a combination of prawn paste and tofu, it has a firmer bite and goes very well with crunchy cucumber and sweet thai sauce. There are so many things that I didn’t get to try that day which I would love to, that includes their assam fish and herbal wine steamboat. I suggest you come early because there may be queue after 7pm during weekends. And also, if you know the story of Hong Kong Street, please drop me a mail.
