I think it’s about time Miss Pinky and I went to Wong Kei 旺記 (Canto: Wong Gei; Mando: Wang Ji) in China Town. It’s well known for it’s super cheap dishes and
rude service. I used to go to this restaurant often with MummyGeek and to me it looks the same as it did many years ago.
Miss Pinky was craving noodle soup and I was just hungry after shopping in horrible crowded Primark in Marble Arch then coming down to a quiet M&S. So much difference. Cheap versus Class. Anyway, this post is about food not shopping!

We were seated near the back on the ground floor. I know there’s a lower ground part where there’s a fountain (is that still there I wonder).
I ordered the food in Cantonese and asked for my favourite shredded pork fried noodles… and I forgot the words for crispy and non-crispy. Uh-oh. Must ask my parents on that next time. Thankfully the waiter switched to English in which I replied “crispy”. Not many waiters do that!! ^_^
It took a few minutes for our food to come out and Miss Pinky was doing her usual people watching at the restaurant.
Miss Pinky asked for the beef brisket noodle soup… Oooo the beef brisket was very smooth and silky. Tasted really good. Miss Pinky mainly ate the noodles and forgot about the beef in which she asked for a takeaway pot (it costs an extra 50 pence for a takeaway bowl).

I had my favourite fried noodles! I haven’t had this for a long, long time and it was about time I had it. The dish came with some extra veggies which I didn’t mind. ^_^ Really crispy. Not salty. Had loads of sauce which is what I preferred.

The plates and bowls are old stuff. I’m sure they had used these for a very long time…
Total came to £10.50. I think the tea came free so we didn’t order any drinks. We forgot to tip, sorry!! Have to save money for this next trip coming up.
My geeky rating: 5/5 for cheap Chinese food!
– Ok service (although I could see a waiter who looked a bit rude but said bye – probably tired)
– Cheap Chinese food in China Town!!!
– I actually can’t think of anything… Miss Pinky didn’t make any complaints! Although the waiters should smile a bit more… ^_^
