King's Palace Congee & Noodle Bar

We were walking around K-Village the other day and noticed that King's Palace Congee & Noodle Bar just opened. We looked at the menu and it looked so good that we wanted to try it out. The menu also mentioned that King's Palace have several branches scattered around Hong Kong & Kowloon. So, we came back to try this Hong Kong styled restaurant serving Hong Kong style food.

The place was very busy for lunch during a Saturday. The restaurant is full of sunlight due to the large windows surrounding the place. The decor was minimalist with white tables, white dishes & cups and black chopsticks to add some colour to the table.

There is a huge open kitchen where the Hong Kong chefs were preparing all the orders as well where we could see the lovely roast pork & goose hanging in the window. We really felt like we were in Hong Kong. The majority of the waitresses & chefs were speaking Cantonese.

The first dish was Fresh Shrimp Wonton with Tossed Noodles (175 baht). The shrimp wontons were huge, the shrimps were plump and the wonton skin were thin. The bouillon was really tasty. The home made tossed noodles were thin, fine and really good. A hearty bowl of noodles & wontons.

The next dish was Anise Seed Beef Tenderloin with Noodles (150 baht). The beef was so fall apart tender while the tendons added a more chewy texture to the soup. The home made noodles were thin & fine and yummy. The bouillon had a lovely beef, anise seed and ginger taste. The combination of textures and flavours in this soup was amazing.

The next dish was a regular order of Roast Goose (350 baht). The goose was very tender and juicy. I could have eaten another order but I controlled myself.

The next dish was Steamed Vermicelli Rolls with Roast Pork (180 baht). The vermicelli roll's skin were too thick and it overwhelmed the dish. They were stingy with the roast pork. This was our least favourite dish. Too bad because normally this dish is really good. This dish was a waste of space on the table!

Overall; a great place for Hong Kong Noodles (I will have to return to try the Congee). Who needs to travel to Hong Kong now that K-Village has a place to go to? The service is good, efficient & somewhat friendly.
