Royal Ramen: We’d be committing heresy by not including the ‘King of Ramen,’ so their signature Hakata-style pork bone ramen ($75) – dubbed ‘Butao King’ – gets the nod from us. Just be prepared to wait over an hour for a seat.

Vietnamese Style: The subtle blend of the aromatic chicken broth, hand-shredded chicken and sliced lime leaves and spices, forged by the hands of chef Peter Franklin, creates arguably some of the best pho in town!

Hong Kong's Best: Mak's noodles small serving keeps the noodles from turning soggy and thus ensures its springy texture. The marinated prawns in the wonton perfectly complements the soup, made from a secret recipe, passed down over three generations in Mak's family legacy.

Noodles with History: With nearly a century worth of history behind it, Kau Kee's beef brisket noodles is a homerun. By spending around $40 you can enjoy a hearty bowl full of fall-off-the-bone beef briskets that comes with either rice noodles, vermicelli-style noodles, flat noodles, or e-fu noodles.
