we were back nicely on time. our friend was rejuvenated, recharged, ready for some makan (eats).
we decided to have a bite at the beef brisket stall Lin Kee 联记面家 across the small road from our metropark hotel.
it’s a tiny place, but there is always a good traffic.
we ordered 2 x beef brisket cum tendons noodles 牛腩牛根面 HK$28.
and 2 x beef brisket noodles 牛腩面 HK$28.
both had beef brisket & beef tendons. but the si tau po – proprietress said 牛腩牛根面 has more tendons while 牛腩面 has lesser just to complement.
it was a tasty bowl of noodles. we were quite happy with it.
not sure if this was 清汤牛腩 clear broth version, but we had this on Day 4 at 牛棚 & the broth & the whole noodles were more tasty & flavourful.
the brisket meat here also not the ones i most preferred which has layered fat & connective tissues 胶 that becomes more flavourful when it converts to gelatine.
the poached chye sim 油菜心 was good.
overall this was a nice light & tasty breakfast, for the 3 of us, a second breakfast making up for the disappointing one at not so good 极之好粥面茶餐厅.
