Hong Kong Chee Cheong Fun

Share

Quite like the ever-popular Chee Cheong Fun, the Hong Kong version is made from rice noodles. A thin flat piece is rolled up with a filling of prawns, barbecued pork (char siew) or chicken, and vegetables, or other ingredients. It is served with sweet soy sauce and is sometimes more sweet than savoury. What makes a good Hong Kong Chee Cheong Fun is when the noodle is smooth or wat, and not grainy. Most important of all is the accompanying sambal or chilli paste cooked in oil, which can make or break a dish. Because it is part of the dim sum range, it is almost always found in dim sum shops. We have included the more popular of these shops, and others, in our tasting.

  2. Chee Cheong Fun is a remarkable Chinese dish, I started to love Chee Cheong Fun when I first ate it in the early 60s. An old Chinese man use to stop at the back of my house in Birch Gardens, Ipoh. All my neighbours use to carry a plate so that the seller could dish the CCF into the plates. The sours was delicious and the CCF was very tasty. It only cost us about 40cents then, simple and straight forward, unlike today, CCF is a very elaborated as they incorporate many other food stuffs.
