Mak’s Noodle

Mak’s Noodle
77 Wellington Street
Central
Hong Kong

With dim sum checked off my list, I moved onto another Hong Kong favorite and must eat, wonton noodles.  There are many other Mak restaurants opened up by relatives or disciples of the original Mak Woon-chi.  However, my research concluded that the original location of  Mak’s Noodle on Wellington Street was the one to try.   The Annoyer recommended trying the wonton noodle shop across the street too, so we decided to do a night of wonton noodle hopping.  DSC00666

Gai Lan oyster sauce
The Annoyer and I wanted to share a bowl of wonton noodles, so we could save room for the next bowl of wonton noodles.  However, there was a minimum purchase amount so we added some simple Chinese broccoli.  I was quite smitten by the these tender sweet greens, but especially so by that tasty and addictiv oyster sauce.  It was quite different than what I’ve had in the past, being just a bit sweeter and less salty.DSC00665

Shrimp Wonton Noodles
The bowls are quite small here, but great things come in small packages.  The noodles were fresh and just barely cooked giving great al dente texture.  The wontons were 100% shrimp and 100% delicious.  The soup did have that hint of MSG, so minus points here, but all in all, a great bowl of wonton noodles.DSC00663

Mak’s Noodle on Wellington Street was a delicious start to our noodle hopping night.  The use of MSG in the soup detracted from the quality of the product.  But the overall flavor of the soup was spot on.  Those shrimp filled wontons were delightful!
