I headed to the noodle bar...



I browsed the menu...



...and ordered Dan dan noodles, and was given a buzzer which would buzz when my dish was ready.

In the mean time, I headed to the self-service bar...





...and poured myself another glass of G H Mumm...



Not long after, the buzzer went off. I collected my Dan Dan noodles...



...and headed to the tables along the verandah...



...what a delightful spot in the airport to enjoy a bowl of noodles, and what delicious Dan dan noodles these were!

For an encore, I headed back to the noodle bar and ordered won ton noodles...



...which were also well up to standard!

Food aside, there was also a rest area/quiet zone...



...as well as restrooms and beautiful shower rooms...





Overall, a very pleasant lounge that I would want to visit again. Positives were the catering (Especially the noodle bar), and the wonderful ambience and spaciousness of the verandah, as well as the presence of proper showers. I also saw the small size of this lounge as more of a positive than a negative: At the time I was there, the lounge was not too crowded, and felt quite peaceful and relaxed.

Would I prefer this to other CX lounges such as The Bridge or The Wing? Probably not: These other CX lounges at HKG had more wow factor. But that said, I found this to be an excellent lounge, well up to CX's high standards. If I was in this part of the terminal, I would certainly love to spend time in this lounge.
