Went to HK Island to take a walk and came to Quarry Bay, an unknown area to me, and found Mian on Ban Hoi Street. The exterior design was quite different from the surrounding area. So raw because of the brick wall. There were not many seats in this small restaurant, but the server did a great job at providing good service.
店家著名的撈麵，當然要一試。與同行的友人點了兩款醬油撈麵 – 醬油蝴蝶腩撈QQ麵，醬油豬臉頰撈粗麵。蝴蝶腩爽口味濃，非常入味，而QQ麵掛汁力不錯，吸汁力亦強，食了兩口已覺得越來越入味，絕對值得推介。
Shop name “Mian” means noodles, so it is a must to try the noodles here. We ordered to soy sauce noodles, one with butterfly belly and QQ noodles, and one with pig cheek with extra thick noodles. The butterfly belly tasted so rich and was quite crunchy. The QQ noodles matched very well with the sauce and absorbed the sauce. It got richer and richer when you ate. Highly recommend.
The pig cheek somehow was so soft that it melted quickly in the mouth. A different texture from the butterfly belly. The thick noodles was quite chewy than QQ noodles.
For the small dishes, I tried to order the seaweed with sesame sauce but it was out of stock. Then we ordered the boiled vegetables and deep-fried pong pong chicken wings. Crispy and delicious. Quite salty that it would be a good match with beer.
The fig and papaya cold drink was a very suitable drink for summer and autumn. Refreshing and calmed you down.
Reasonable price with such good quality of food and great service. Will definitely return.
