I have put off coming here as a priority mainly due to its location as there is no MTR station.
Finally I decided to come here because it was nearish to To Kwa Wan.
Arrived at Hung Hom by ferry, walked and walked, crossed alot of roads until I got there.
This noodle joint is located on Sung Kit Street where there are lots of eateries, however I entered Sung Kit Street from the alleyway end so I was doubting if I was on the right street.
Anyway, was greeted by the young owners and the style of the shop felt really vibrant and colourful, even the air conditioners above were painted to match the front of the shop (which I forgot to take a picture of).
Basically this place sells noodles where you can pick different toppings that you tick on the sheet.
Usually these noodle shops use tacky photocopied paper for these order sheets but here they used quality paper with colour that you would expect for leaflets that you recieve.
Now at MinMax1950, there are no ordering sheet but through their computerized system.
Photos of the restaurant:
Not an area of this joint was left undecorated and the bowls and holders were fun too!
Deep fried Fish shaomai:
As well as being fried, the shape of it was round like fishballs.
The shaomai was quite airy inside. I wonder if injected them with air so that they became round.
Anyway the taste was delicious, the fishmeat was soft and the yellow wonton skin was really crispy and the softness of the fishmeat was similar to foamy marshallow.
Instant noodles with Thai chicken and coconut broth:
I really regretted not ordering a third bowl of noodles with the tom yom kung soup base.
For the thai chicken broth, it was an extra $10 but it was worth it.
The bowl is much bigger than the bowls for the ordinary broth because the broth is so nice that you end up drinking it.
The broth had lots of lemongrass and it was really refreshing and the chicken taste was strong and luckily the coconut flavour was subtle.
With the noodles I picked blood curds and chinese radish.
For improvements I feel that the toppings should be served separately from the soup if you order the thai broth because the creaminess of the soup does not quite match the Chinese ingredients such as blood curds and radish.
Despite that the blood curds were full of flavour and the chinese radish was incredibly sweet that I wondered if they were natrually like that or sweetened.
Finally I chose instant noodles because these noodles do not alter the soup taste but surprisingly when I ate the instant noodles it had absorbed the thai chicken and coconut broth flavour which was good.
