Cheung Fun

When I first chanced by Xin Kee Hong Kong Cheong Fun, I was doubtful if this really is the Hong Kong type of cheung fun or some pseudo wannabe. So I went up to the stall and started a conversation in Cantonese. To my delight, I discovered that the stall owner came from Macau and learned the trade of making cheung fun in Hong Kong from a local master.

At this stall, there are 5 different varieties of cheung fun available and they are freshly made to order. Instead of steaming the cheung fun from an alumiunium tray with a layer of oil added, the cheung fun here is steamed with a piece of cloth. This results in a cheung fun that is less greasy and mirrors the exact technique used for making cheung fun in Hong Kong.

Plain Cheung Fun

Unlike the Singapore chee cheong fun, Hong Kong style cheung fun comes in a thinner roll and is cut longer. This plain cheung fun is incredibly soft and smooth. Just like the cheung fun served in Hong Kong, a generous amount of peanut sauce and sweet sauce is added to it and topped with some sesame seeds. This cheung fun tastes wonderful! Exactly like the ones in Hong Kong.

Prawn Cheung Fun

The prawn cheung fun has the same smooth and soft cheung fun skin wrapping a generous amount of prawns. The prawns are springy and fairly fresh tasting. The prawn cheung fun is served with a mildly sweet tasting soya sauce. It is good!

Char Siew Cheung Fun

The char siew cheung fun has the same soft and smooth cheung fun with meaty bits of slightly sweet char siew. It is topped with some chopped spring onions and fried shallots and served with a mildly sweet tasting soya sauce. Lovely!

Chye Poh Cheung Fun

The chye poh cheung fun uses bits of crunchy chye poh as its filling. The chye poh is not too salty with a light note of sweetness. The cheung fun is as usual soft and smooth, and topped with some chopped spring onions and fried shallots. Comes served on a plate with mildly sweet tasting soya sauce added. It is nice!

Zha Leung

When you order the zha leung, the you tiao is deep fried on the spot and freshly rolled with the steamed cheung fun. I had requested to have peanut sauce and sweet sauce added to my zha leung, just the way I like it in Hong Kong. This results in a soft and smooth cheung fun wrapping a crispy you tiao, with sweet and nutty flavours. This is heavenly. It tastes even better than most zha leung found in Hong Kong, where the you tiao filling is mostly soft and no longer crispy.

Fried Chilli

Even the chilli used here is similar to the ones in Hong Kong. This chilli has bits of crispy chilli soaking in a chilli-infused oil. It is spicy with a subtle hint of sweetness. It pairs really well with the cheung fun.

As someone who used to live in Hong Kong, I can vouch that the cheung fun served here is 100% authentic Hong Kong style and tastes even better than most cheung fun found in Hong Kong. Now, I can satisfy my Hong Kong cheung fun cravings without having to make a trip back to Hong Kong. The cheung fun served here is unbelievably good! Highly recommended!
