Ay-Sheng Flour-Rice Noodle 阿升麵線

When I went to Crumbs in Mongkok I noticed a stall right next to it that sold all sorts of Taiwanese food. It reminded me of my recent trip to Taipei so I checked it out.

Ay Sheng

They sold popular Taiwanese snacks like fried chicken cutlets, minced pork on rice and cuttlefish balls.

Their most popular item is the pig intestine flour-rice noodle which I didn’t try because I don’t eat pig intestine and the flour-rice noodles soup looked like our misua which I don’t like either. Yes call me weird.

I did try their  caramel pudding milk tea.

I liked the texture of the caramel milk pudding. It reminded me of leche flan but less sweet. The milk tea wasn’t very strong though. It was just ok as a whole.

I also bought the plum powdered sweet potato fries for my lunch. I remembered how good the sweet potato fries were in Raohe Market in Taipei and I hoped that these would be as good.

These fries were very crisp, sweet and sprinkled with lots of black pepper and plum powder. The combination of the sweet, tart plum powder with the spicy black pepper and sweet potatoes were amazing! So many  contrasting flavors yet it all came together for a yummy snack.

While taking pictures I saw the fried mushrooms on the menu and had to order it too. Golden and button mushrooms were lightly coated with batter, fried to a crisp and spiced with salt and pepper.

Greasy and sooooo delicious!!

I love fried food but I can’t stand the grease so I always blot the oil to death. I do this to pizza, fried chicken and even dim sum. 🙂

I love going to Mongkok for all sorts of bargains, computer stuff, sneakers and all kinds of street food specially on busy Bute Street. So if you’re feeling adventurous try to visit this area and get a feel of local Hong Kong.

Next to Ay-Sheng is another food stall. Look at the lady telling me not to take pictures.
