Also, this is what I imagine suburban-minded people think of when they hear the word “density”

Chiu Fat, Kowloon, Hong Kong

Two blocks directly behind The Peninsula hotel in Kowloon, you’ll find Lock Road, which is dotted with several noted local restaurants, like Mak Noodle and Lady. However, my choice for a good meal on this block is Chiu Fat Restaurant, where they specialize in all thing pork…

They also make ordering very easy with this handy-dandy chart where you can simply point to mix-and-match whatever you want in your bowl…

For $45 HKD, which is about $5.75 US, you get a big bowl of their classic pork bone broth with your choice of noodles and one topping. Every additional topping is $10 HKD, or a little over a buck. You order and they instantly go to work creating your dish…

Ready for pick up in minutes…

I went with egg noodles topped with Chiu Fat’s house special wontons and sliced pork heart. The pork broth here is bold and balanced, but not as creamy or fatty as a Japanese tonkotsu…

I adore thin noodles and these were near perfect…

The wontons you get are golf ball-sized, plump and juicy…

Packed with pork and shrimp…

And whenever I see any kind of heart on a menu, I order it. I love the slightly tangy taste and the toothy texture….

Easy ordering, fantastic food, affordable prices… I highly recommend you go and chew the fat at Chiu Fat! (I wonder how many times that pun has been made?!)
