Mak’s Noodle 麥奀雲吞麵世家 is another most talked about wanton noodles in Hong Kong. 2 to 3 years ago when I first went to Hong Kong, I tried their Causeway Bay’s outlet before but did not know they are so famous. This time round, we had our dinner at the Central’s outlet.
Chinese menu was placed within the table and mind you, the tables are all pretty small, especially when you have tons of shopping bags with you. But the in-charge, manager I suppose? Was really friendly and kind to us. I guess partly because it’s after dinner time, so they gave us extra chairs to put our stuffs.
If you are not good with Chinese, you can request for a copy of the English menu.
Starting from HK$35 per bowl for soup and HK$42 per plate for dry noodles, this stall is slightly above average in terms of pricing. Serving-wise, it’s not big either. I can prolly finish 2 bowls on my own. The guys were not full after one bowl each.
But this is definitely satisfying! Each bowl was piping hot when served. The soup has a hint of the lye-water (jian shui) aftertaste but not too strong. And the wanton is filled with juicy prawns with a silky layer skin. Noodles are the standard QQ type.
Ordered the braised beef and wanton noodles for Mr Boyfriend because he love love beef. And this is superb! The beef is so well cooked and it teared easily. And the taste of the soup is so heavenly. If you are a beef lover, do try this or the beef tendon noodle.
This is definitely one of the best wanton noodles around.
