Tsim Chai Kee Noodle

98 Wellington St, Central
Visited 1st October 2008

A mate and I found Tsim Chai Kee Noodle by chance while staggering down from Soho. When we rocked up it was quite busy with a line of people waiting for seats. Decked out with communal wooden tables and simple wooden stools it was a surprisingly clean and pleasant environment.

There was only a couple of options on the menu; noodles with beef, noodles with wontons, noodles with minced fish balls, noodles with a combination of things and vegetables. We luckily both like noodles and went for the beef, wonton combination. While the steaming bowls that arrived weren’t as big as I expected, they were rather tasty. The strips of beef were tender and the two chunky wontons packed with juicy prawn. The highlight however was the delicious soup base; it was dark, rich and flavoursome.

A tasty meal for $21 is good value and it was rather nice to be able to enjoy a bowl of noodles in such a clean, modern environment. Sure the service was nothing special, but I got a smile as by bowl was plonked down and they had English menus, which is enough for me. If you’re in the area and feeling peckish Tsim Chai Kee Noodle is a good option, it’s also convenient if you just happen to be stumbling downhill from Soho.
