Food critic Michael Lam says Kai Kai's "cart noodles" (around HK$20) remind him of the flavors of his childhood in housing estates in the 1970s, when noodles heaped with a mishmash of ingredients were sold from mobile carts.
"Everything here is authentic and traditional," says Lam.
The family business has been around for more than 60 years. Its food is still considered unique from other cart noodle places. Offerings include fresh pigs' intestines as well as pomelo skin and deep-fried mashed taro.
