MELBOURNE | Hi Chong Qing is a hole in the wall noodle shop nestled in the back streets of Carlton near RMIT. Some say that the best noodles in Melbourne can be found here.

Kevin Houng opened Hi Chong Qing in late 2017. It was the culmination of a dream that started when he discovered the noodles prepared by a noodle master in Chongqing, his partner’s hometown. The master, who had been perfecting his noodles for 25 years, agreed to teach Houng the tricks of the trade and, several months later, Houng was ready to open his own venue.

The menu at Hi Chong Qing is simple. Five noodle bowls, with a few customisation options like extra meat and fried egg. The signature Chongqing noodle bowl, with a spicy pork bone broth is the way to go when you first visit. It’s served simply with noodles, peanuts, greens, and spring onions.

The broth is thin, with a flavour that is complex and wonderful. It contains contains five-spice powder, spring onions, coriander, onion, garlic, amongst other things. Highly recommended is the optional fried egg and beef mince. If you want, there’s a vegetarian option available too.

On your second visit, try a combination of the spicy beef broth bowl with pieces of slow cooked beef and beef tendon. It’s a more intense broth than the signature bowl and the beef and beef tendon combo provides fantastic texture.

If you’re really looking for a meat focused option, try the pork mince and chickpea dry noodle bowls. There’s also the Chinese herbs beef noodles bowl, the featuring the lightest broth of the five.
