Thinking of a quick noodle meal with delicious wonton in Hong Kong, Mak's Noodle may be one of the answer for you. Mak's Noodle is a specialist in noodle (obviously), wonton, and braised beef for over 40 years. There are quite a few shops in Hong Kong. However, this is the one on Leighton Road in Causeway Bay.

Here you pop in, take a quick meal, and off you go. Nothing really fancy here: no fancy looking food, no lovely and cool atmosphere, no kind staff to please you but only drooling noodle dish that will make you come back again.

First, you just need to have in mind whether you are looking for noodle in soup or tossed noodle, else no noodle at all. Then pick your favourite alongside ingredients: wonton, dumpling (similar to wonton but just a little fancier filling), beef brisket, beef tendon, pork, and etc. Within a few minutes, you order will be ready and off you go another few minutes to finish the dish. I personally love the wonton and beef tendon here. They can go pretty amazingly with either noodle in soup and tossed noodle. To make the meal more meaningful, I would recommend a side dish such as Beef Brisket and Beef Tendon and Chinese Kale with Oyster Sauce (soft and enjoyable) just like what we had.

The points about Mak's Noodle are ingredients and balance, I suppose. I have found that noodle was cooked at the right point (again as the Italian may say al dente), nice and yummy filling of wonton and dumpling were in generous portion, beef was braised until tender, and flavour of soup was rich but not overpowered. If I were to live in Hong Kong, I would sure be a regular customer here. On the pricing wise, this is not one of the cheapest joint for noodle but not ridiculously expensive (mostly in the range of HKD40 plus/minus). I would say it is valuable. Anyway, bon appetit if you have a chance to visit Mak's Noodle.
