New Hawker Stall Sells Legit HK-Style Cart Noodles With 20 Customisable Toppings
Fei Gong Cart Noodle offers the hard-to-find traditional dish – in a kopitiam.
Cart noodles is a uniquely Hong Kong traditional dish that originated there in the ’50s. Designed as a cheap and quick soupy meal, its name came about as it was sold from wooden carts pushed by hawkers, who would fill up bowls with steaming hot broth, noodles and their customers’ choice of meat and veggie toppings.
Due to government regulations, the wooden carts began disappearing from street corners - the modern-day cart noodles are now usually found in smaller restaurants in Hong Kong. It’s even harder to find this humble dish in Singapore, as cart noodles is not as popular as its other more famous Hong Kong food counterparts like bolo buns and dim sum.
