This crispy gau gee is so ono! It does not disappoint. Made with wonton pi from Young’s Noodle Factory, fresh fish cake from Chinatown, and a tangy ponzu dipping sauce.
Just a quick stop at Young’s Noodle Factory on Liliha and we were on our way to get a lesson in gau gee 101!
Located on the right-hand side of Liliha St., heading mauka, just before Liliha Bakery
Love the smell of these noodles–simple, doughy and eggy. Freshly made every day Mon – Sat 6am – 3pm.
200 wrappers? But then again…they’re THAT good!
The filling is a mix of pork hash, hamburger, shrimp, and fresh fish cake. Only a small amount is needed, so there’s a nice crispy wrapper to filling ratio. Seal the edges with egg whites.
Fry until golden brown
Aunty working her magic.
Serve with ajipon brand ponzu and lime juice. Although these are deep fried, this tangy sauce keeps you going back for more.
Little golden pockets with exactly the right amount of meaty filling. The water chestnuts add texture and crunch. The shell is light and crispy on the outside and just slightly chewy on the inside. Get them before they’re gone!
