HKG: Sister Wah (華姐清湯腩)

Serving delectable beef brisket noodle since 2003!

To start another series of HK food reviews, I shall write about Sister Wah that's well-known for its beef brisket noodle soup. I got to know about the small family-run eatery with only six round tables a few years ago while watching a particular food show on TV. It's listed under the Bib Gourmand category of the 2017 Michelin Guide.

Beef Brisket Noodle Soup HK$45.00 (~S$8.10)
Taste: 8.5/10

Instead of yellow noodle, I decided to have my beef brisket with kway teow (Chinese flat rice noodle). As expected, the red meat was succulent with an adequate amount of fats. The clear broth had a clean sweetness, topped with spring onions that further enhanced the overall aroma of the dish.

Veggie Rice with Pork Ribs HK$55.00 (~S$9.90)
Taste: 8.5/10

For something different, you may want to try the veggie rice with your choice of meat. The rice was well-cooked and pretty tasty on its own. Given the score above, it goes without saying that it went well with the deep-fried pork ribs that were juicy and enjoyably crunchy at the same time. 

Drunken Chicken HK$60.00 (~S$10.80)
Taste: 8.5/10

Served slightly below room temperature, the drunken chicken didn't disappoint at all as the Chinese cooking wine used was pretty strong, jolting the senses awake. The skin was nicely gelatinous, while the predominantly breast meat was tender enough for my liking. Pika's advice: Not a fan of breast meat? For an additional HK$10.00 (~S$1.80), you'll get chicken thigh instead.

Melon's Rating
Taste: 8.5/10
Ambience: 5.5/10
Service: 6.5/10
Overall: 7/10

To help those who can't read Chinese, here's a picture of the facade as the eatery doesn't have an English sign. The menu, on the other hand, does include English and Japanese translations.
