D.I.Y. Fisheye Lens
Since I bought my E-500, I had been dreaming of a fisheye lens. But until now, I still cannot afford one. What I like about the fisheye lens are the effect of the round distortion and it can cover super ultra wide angle of sight... Read More...

Nippy Noodle Restaurant 弹牙竹升面屋

The shop...

Last weekend, my friend brought me to Nippy Noodle Restaurant to try their signature noodle - bamboo noodles. This is my first time trying this kind of noodles and really anticipated with it...

So what is bamboo noodles?
Jook-sing noodles 竹升面 (Bamboo noodles) is a rare type of Chinese noodle found in some parts of Hong Kong, Macau, and some parts of Guangzhou. The noodle is made with egg, and is considered one of the more rare noodle in existence. Historically the chef rides a bamboo log to press the eggs, flour, and other ingredients together. As of 2008 in Hong Kong, only a few restaurants are left that make the noodles in the traditional manner. (Source:

My dried bamboo noodles with char-siew and roasted pork...

All the noodles are freshly made daily and there are no left overs. The noodles are made from premium flours and eggs without addition of any liquid or water. No preservatives or food conditioner added so therefore it is a very healthy noodle. The noodles are very springy feeling when you put into your mouth. Combine with the pickled chili, it is a heaven. The mee actually is called Wan Tan Mee by its normal look. This restaurant called it Bamboo Noodles as it is made by using bamboo. Usually they serve you the noodle without the pork lard. Go ahead and ask for it and definitely it will make you fly after eating together with the noodle. The pork lard fried fresh daily too. (Source:

Personally, the noodles tasted like wantan mee but it's a little more springy and chewy. The char-siew and roasted pork were good too. I will visit again to try another variety of bamboo noodles.

Every tables had this description sticker to explain the bamboo noodles making procedure...
