In addition to Mak’s Noodle’s flagship outlet at The Centrepoint, they have now opened another outlet in the west at Westgate. This noodles chain has been serving their legendary wonton noodles since 1920, and now with their second branch in Singapore, more people will get to try their dishes. Also, in order to main food standards, their ingredients are shipped directly from the branch in Central, Hong Kong.
Tossed Noodle with Prawns & Dried Shrimp Roe ($16.20). I found this dish overpriced.
Tossed Noodle with Beef Brisket ($9). Even with the added green chilli, it could not diminish the saltiness of the noodles. However, I loved the thin and springy texture of the noodles and felt that it would fare better in soup form.
The noodles at Mak’s Noodle come in both tossed and soup versions. The soup variety being slightly cheaper than the tossed ones, for example the Beef Brisket Noodle Soup costs $7.80 ($1.20 lesser than the dry one). That said, I felt that there is a wider range of choices in the Tossed Noodles section.
I did not manage to consume their famous wontons or dumplings, but if you get the change, you might want to give them a try. This restaurant was once hailed as “Best Wonton Noodle In Hong Kong.” The dumplings contain pork, prawn, mushroom black fungus and bamboo shoot.
Seasonal Vegetable in Oyster Sauce ($5.90). As you can see from the pictures above, the noodles were sorely lacking in greens. Hence, this was a welcome addition to break the monotonous notion of having just noodles and meat.
Sliced Fish Congee ($7.50). It was kind of sad to note that the congee actually stole the limelight from the noodles. The porridge was so smooth and silky that it made me long to come back for more. This might turn out to be one of my favourite congee places in the long run.
