Quick Review of Prawn Noodles at Tsui Wah, Shanghai

24th November 2013 / Shanghai

Just a quick review of my favourite item at Tsui Wah.


Most, if not all foodies would be no strangers to this famous Hong Kong chain. Whilst some would argue that their standards have dropped ever since they started commercialising their outlets, I feel that the quality of their food while slightly pricey, is still above average on all of my visits.

One of my favourite items is their Shrimp Roe & Prawns with Tossed Noodles. Served with 5 huge de-shelled prawns, the noodles are lightly tossed in shallot oil and comes with a small dish of XO sauce that goes very very well when tossed together with the noodles.

The scatter of shrimp roe helps season the otherwise bland noodles and adds a layer of umami kick. Very delicious.

Total bill: ¥48
