It’s 07:30 in the morning and I have just landed in Hong Kong for a business trip. Facing me as soon as I pass through immigration is a selection of restaurants serving rice, noodles and more importantly, soup. Hey it’s early, I can’t check in for a while I might as well head straight for a bowl of the good stuff for breakfast.

I choose Tai Hing as they have beef noodle soup on the menu. A big picture showing me what i can expect. Looks good and only around a fiver.

First thing you can taste is the star anise, a constant note through this bowl of soup. The broth is rich and tangy with small beads of oil floating on the surface. There is a slight peppery heat too, in fact, the flavours ride on the pepper. The noodles are chewy and the spring onions add a freshness.

A good start to a very short visit.
