Mak's Noodle

Expert recommendation

I think Won Ton noodles is one of the must haves in Hong Kong, and there are some good and unfortunately some bad places. The one that I like to go to is Mak’s noodles. They have many branches, I like the one on Wellington Street. Won ton noodles is something that is so Hong Kong. What's special about them is that they always come in a small bowl, not in a big bowl. It can be a bit deceiving if you don't understand why they serve them in a small bowl because you have to eat 2 bowls to get food for proper lunch. Two bowls versus one that is cheaper, people can think its not very valuable. I look at it as ordering a half a pint of beer in the middle of the summer in Thailand versus a full pint – you rather order two small half pints to keep it cold. It’s the same thing-to keep the noodles crunchy and to keep the soup hot which is very, very important in Won Ton, because the noodles cook for around 5 seconds and that's it. We can't even describe it as al dente because it's another vocabulary. It's almost crunchy, not just al dente, and that's also the technique of the noodle. So very, very good. I love bringing my friends here when they come out of town.
