Fong Wing Kee Hot Pot Restaurant
Fong Wing Kee Hot Pot Restaurant is famed for its rich, flavourful satay hot pot broth. Initially established in the 1950s by the current owner’s father, the business started as a humble noodle stall. In the 1980s it was relocated to Hau Wong Road and expanded into a hot pot restaurant. The shutter artwork shows Fong Wing Kee’s legacy in three snapshots. The image on the right shows the owner Mr Fong pointing at a vintage photograph of Kowloon Walled City, where his father’s original stall was located. The centre image shows a bowl of soup being prepared at the noodle stall. The image on the left shows people enjoying hot pot in the current shop. In the past, Fong Wing Kee’s hot pots were served in traditional charcoal stoves rather than the gas stoves used today. Mr Fong has firm ideas about which ingredients are best for the perfect hot pot, and which flavours are best combined with his perfect broth!
