In this series of posts, you will get my take on the rivalry between Mak’s Noodle and its competitor, Tsim Chai Kee Noodle, both located along Wellington Street, directly facing each other – head on. Don’t bother about making yourself comfortable here – with land space being a big issue in Hong Kong, many places in the country proves its point. Well, for one, you’re in for an intimate dining session.
Prices are relatively steeper than its match. HKD33 / approximately SGD5 for a bowl of basic wonton noodles in soup – if I were back in Singapore, I would give it a second thought before making the order.
Wonton Noodles in Soup (HKD33) :: Alright. So let’s break it down. The soup. It is oooolala addictive. What more, it surely isn’t the kind of MSG addiction. You can taste its authenticity. The noodles. Thin. My favorite. It would have been perfect for me if it wasn’t as hard – if it was cooked a while more. The wontons. They were fine, as I generally don’t like wontons. These did not make me have a change of opinion. Be warned though, it is a small package of goodness.
You can decide for yourself after reading my take on both of the famous wonton noodles in Hong Kong, Mak’s Noodles and Tsim Chai Kee Noodle. It really depends on where your priority lies. For me, I’m skewing more toward Mak’s Noodles, for the sheer perfection on its soup base.
