Hello noodle lovers! I recommend you to try la mian from Shanghai Lao Lao, CWB, Hong Kong. It is located on the 1/F in a food place (like FX Sudirman, Indonesia) where all food tenants are collected. The place is opposite Kate Spade, H&M, and Ted Baker. I found this place outside my itinerary because I was very hungry at that time and wanted to eat la mian.
Telling the memory of good old days cooking by Lao Lao, who means grandma in north China. Shang Hai Lao Lao is a chained Shanghainese restaurant offering fresh ingredients and perfect cooking every dish at a reasonable price.
To express the warm old home feeling, a warmly welcomed by an open plan but different layouts as a traditional home setting. A perfect mix of contemporary and classic design elements of old Shanghai, a bevel edge glass window and black iron frame in French style. The place is dominated with gold, red, and black color. The decoration is look like an expensive Chinese restaurants. And yes, the price is quite expensive. However, it is worth to try! In addition, the hot tea is free!

Wonton La Mian (HKD 53)
My all time favorite la mian with wonton.The meat was pork and shrimp. The soup was brothy, fatty, and porky. The la mian was samll, thin, but chewy. Super yummy!
Minced Pork La Mian (HKD 52)
It is a dried la mian with separated chicken herbal soup. The minced pork was so delicious! Umami taste, sweet, salty, and spicy. The soup consisted of chicken wings cooked with herbal spices. I think you will be addicted if you eat this!
Yang Chow Fried Rice (HKD 62)
The fried rice consisted of scrambled egg, spring onion, boiled shrimp, and vegetables. The wok sensation was there. The taste was not as tasty as minced pork la mian, but once you paired it with mapo tofu you will get addicted.
Mapo Tofu (HKD 57)
Don’t get surprise if the a la carte dishes are more expensive than la mian. This mapo tofu is suitable for 3-4 persons. Eat it with hot steamed rice. This is very tasty. The tofu was so soft. The bean paste (aka tauco) is also good and salty. Spicy, porky, and umami.; All in balance. Recommended!
Overall, I was so satisfies having my lunch in Shanghai Lao Lao. All of the foods we ordered were delicious! Even I add steamed rice and mapo tofu after eating one portion of wonton la mian. I’m so addicted until now! Although it’s pricey, you must try this at least once! I still remember those tasty foods on my tongue!
Stay tune for my travel journey in Hong Kong.
