If I were to pick a particular kind of noodles to represent Hong Kong, I would give my vote to this unique and comforting noodles in condensed tomato broth other than cart noodles (車仔麵) that would have come to your mind. Thick broth is always the soul of noodles, regardless of whatever ingredients to be put inside. To pair pho with vietnam, ramen with japanese, boat noodles with thai, then Sing Heung Yuen's tomato noodles with Hong Kong.Tucked away in an open space linking to a staircase at the back streets of Central-Sheungwan area, the halfly al fresco eatery is all the time busy. With canvas as shelters and placed with simple stools and wooden tables, the "daipaidong" stood there for more than 40 years, but it wasn't until 2000 that they started specialising in tomato broth dishes.There aren't many food stalls like this remaining in Hong Kong, the license of which stemmed from wartime Hong Kong and was only given to families with injured civil servants with limited transfer of ownership. Originally operating as an all-round Chinese eatery serving a variety of cha chaan teng food, it added tomato slices to a bowl of noodles as requested by a customer, which in turn creates the legend of tomato broth noodles. At an average price of $35 for a bowl which is on a par with a meal box in fast food shop, it brings locals who desperately need an affordable meal, and tourists/ holiday commuters who are drawn by the fame of divine goodness of broth.Among daipaidongs that I have ever visited, hygiene condition of this is way above average. Apparently looking fine on a sunny day that I paid this visit, it doesn't look that bad on rainy days either. Canvas above you do its job well to shelter you away from the rain but at the same time don't shed water on your back. While tables, stools and metal fans are gone when the shop closes, these green shacks remain, which are in fact the indispensable part, the Kitchen.Noodles are prepared in one side, the space of which is just fit for 1-2 ladies' moving around. Another side is for roasting crispy bun and preparing sandwiches. Given such a petite kitchen and limited staff, the food stall is operated smoothly with high efficiency. Sun or rain may determine how long you have to wait to be seated, but time and season doesn't really matter. With nearly flawless memories of the ladies, your order is usually served within 10 minutes after getting seated.The menu seems to be long, but in fact just repeats combinations of ingredients, the price of which mainly varies with number of ingredients. The exuberant menu covers noodles with/without tomato broth, sandwiches, buns and drinks. What to be put inside noodles are common enough to be found elsewhere, such as beef, ham, sausages, luncheon meat, pork chop and chicken wings. Noodles served after breakfast time are instant noodles and macaroni. 蕃茄牛肉碎牛炒蛋通粉  Macaroni with tomato, scrambled eggs with corned beef and beef $35A vibrant bowl of red greeted me, however red to the extent that it looks a bit eccentric to be edible. There lies no doubt of its genuine tomato content, which is a hearty mix of several types of canned tomatoes with variance in sweetness/ acidity.  About the broth - Not much oil floats around, just a little bit probably from the scrambled eggs. What makes the fame is how thick the tomato broth is, which is not made by adding tomato slices or concentrate into boiled water. Pot of delectable tomato soup is cooked every day with lots of tomatoes, thus giving such a visually-inspiring red broth with plenty of tomato slices. The broth tastes tangy and superbly refreshing, without much add-on of artificial sweetness.About the other ingredients - Beef and scrambled eggs with corned beef are my all-time favourites that never disappoint. Eggs with finely chopped beef is mildly fried and scrambled, therefore it can't be firm enough to be held long on a spoon or chopsticks. Permeated with aroma of not totally done egg and briny beef, pieces of scrambled eggs are blended beautifully, so flavourful on its own that neither egg nor beef overpowers each other.Beef is always tender and without tendon, which nearly melts in your mouth with a sip of tomato broth. Smooth and gentle, there lies no necessity to linger long in your mouth but swallow. Robust beef flavour remains from plain beef slices, which suggests 'less is more'.檸蜜脆脆 Butter & Honey with Lemon Crispy Bun $16Adding sandwiches to a bowl of noodles will be too much, but never say no to a crispy bun which is without substantial toppings that make you full. Firstly roasted to make it crispy and applied a thin spread of lemon honey, the bun tastes zesty and is easy to consume even without a sip of soup or drinks. Slices of four are not difficult to handle, or you may put it as the bread to go with the soup just like appetisers. Crispy on the exterior and slightly tender inside, a simple spread makes an elevated spin by the utter freshness of acidic lemon.It is not a surprise that most of us finish off the tomato broth like this. Just like ramen, it seems to be paying tribute to the chef, but it is genuinely decadent instead of courtesy that makes me drink it all up. Hearty noodles as always, Sing Heung Yuen is one (among several) of my favourite local eateries where I long for a visit at desperate times. What I pay is truly worth the wait and crawl, instead of going to food presentation and vibes. continue reading

講真,香港大排檔愈來愈生小,係中環食餐飯又甘貴,所以無論OL,遊客,街坊等等都鍾意黎到呢度食飯。夏天唔敢講,但宜家涼涼地絕對是好去處,因為大排檔得把風扇,冇冷氣,衛生唔係好,大家要有心理準備去接受。例牌黎到要有耐性地排隊,排一陣啦就到你了!好多人食蕃茄公仔麵,本人食過一次,可惜太重罐頭味,所以完全不明所以點解甘受歡迎,所以之後過來,我會叫麵包奶油脆脆貼檸檬脆脆係必叫,剛烘烤好的麵包檯上來,加上這兩種醬汁,特別開胃的!價錢唔貴。。下午茶叫埋杯野飲都幾好對了!坐唔耐,亦唔好期待要有良好服務態度 continue reading

佢個蕃茄湯底好味就無容置疑,但佢既位置同環境就不禁令我成日卻步。係夏天既話,大熱天時由中環行上去,再坐係無冷氣既地方,食熱辣辣既麵,對我嚟講,試過幾次真係唔係好頂得順😂😂依幾日一轉涼,就即刻lunch行上去食行到上去,一滴汗到無實在太好了Lunch time非常多人,而且係無一套有系統既排隊,只可以企係食客後面等人食完,依個都算係小店既混亂不過,為左佢個蕃茄麵,就唔理得咁多啦鮮紅色既湯底,蕃茄好足料,每啖都好有蕃茄味食通粉可以每啖食落都有更加多湯,不過可惜我唔多鐘意通粉,每次都係揀麵碎牛蛋既蛋好嫩滑,配合埋啲碎牛,真係好好味雞翼係普通貨色,只係覺得有啲肉咬下開心啲,唔想揀豬扒同鮮牛肉,就揀左雞翼😂仲有佢個檸蜜脆真係無得輸脆卜卜,再上檸檬同蜜糖,酸同甜配合得幾好,每次嚟都要嗌佢不過朋友就嫌太酸,覺得一般般,對我嚟講,就還可以朋友仲鐘情佢依到既凍奶茶,話平時唔多飲都覺得好好味依到就算名氣咁大,啲侍應都keep住小店既人情味,會同啲食客講笑 continue reading

知道好多遊客會嚟食,所以通常都係午飯時間後先過去食,通常都唔洗點等位。呢度有我最鐘意食嘅蕃茄牛肉麵,睇落好似好普通,但係佢話哂都係用鮮蕃茄去煮,出面好多餐廳都只係用茄醬,而且牛肉份量都不少。另外叫咗杯鹹檸七,都好正! continue reading
