Hong Kong International Airport is one of the most beautiful airport I’ve ever visited.

But we not going to talk about that now.

We talking about this food outlet tucked at the corner of the airport.

Maxim’s Food.

After 4 hours of budget flight, this sign is like an oasis!

Let see what they have here…

This looks good, that one too.

Dumpling Noodles! I choose you!

Inside the dumplings are juicy prawns, repeat JUICY PRAWNS.

The noodles texture are just nice, not too soggy (which I hate). This type of noodles is the most common in Hong Kong.

Slightly curly with firm skinny length.

The broth are tasty without too overpowering, YUMM!

We all have moments where we crave awesome nostalgic foods of yesteryear. Foods that can take us back to a certain period of time just by thinking of them.

Some of them probably didn’t survive the test of time and vanished forever,…geez, that would really suck.

To me, living in central Jakarta has it perks, you can find noodle shops of different origins in the same corner.

There are Medanese noodle, Kalimantan noodle, Hong Kong noodle, etc.

One of my favorite from my childhood is a noodle shop in Krekot, an area near where i grew up.

The noodles are curly, with strips of pork meat, fried shallot, and a bed of veggies underneath it.

You can also order a side of thousand year old eggs/ Pi-Tan (it’s not true, they’re not a thousand year old =D).

The noodle shop is well hidden inside a complex of home/shops. So unless you live in the area, or heard the noodle place from word-of-mouth,

you won’t know about this place. The place don’t even have a sign, for crying out loud!

One thing that changed it’s probably myself. Growing up makes me more health concious,

which kinda takes all the fun of eating these guilty pleasures from the past. Oh well, once in a while is okay, i guess.

Please do share your nostalgic foods from your area. Who knows one day i’ll have the chance to try it. Cheers.
