HK Boy Cart Noodle

HK Boy Cart Noodle (香港仔車仔麵) is a chain of noodle restaurants. It is founded by a Hongkonger who has worked for several decades in Malaysia. The titular noodle dish was popularized by pushcarts in Hong Kong during the 1950s. Pedlars are notable for allowing customers to customize their noodle dishes.
The outlet at Logan Heritage is designed in a down-to-earth manner, presenting an ambience reminiscent of Hong Kong's hawker scene. But unlike hawker centers in Hong Kong, this restaurant is reasonably spacious.
In order to streamline the ordering process, customers are expected fill up order chits on their tables. The signature dish here, Cart Noodle (車仔麵), can be served dry or with soup; the latter is more popular. There are several types of noodle to choose from. For first timers, Hong Kong egg noodle (香港幼麵) is recommended. It is springier than our local wan tan mee (雲吞麵).
Customers can mix several types of soup together. I opted for a mixture of beef tendon sauce (秘製牛腩汁) and braised sauce (秘製鹵水汁). The soup is savory and has a hint of spiciness. As for toppings, my choices are lemongrass pork chop (香茅豬扒), braised chicken feet (蠔皇雞腳) and prawn brewed soy sheets (鮮蝦釀腐竹).
The normal price of Iced Ying Yong (冰鎮鴛鴛) is RM4.90. But it only costs RM2.00 if the drink is ordered between 12:00pm and 3:00pm. To keep the beverage chilled without being diluted, the bottle is placed in an ice bath. "Ying yong" refers to the fact that the drink is a mixture of two constituents, namely milk tea and coffee.
Today's lunch costs RM16.95 including drinks. The taste is reasonably good. HK Boy Cart Noodle's food quality certainly lives up to its reputation. The restaurant also serves snacks from Hong Kong like Polo Buns (菠萝包) and Egg Waffles (雞蛋仔), but I do not have the chance to taste them this round.
