Our first day in Hong Kong was a busy one. We arrived early morning and went straight to the happiest place on earth—Disneyland! We spent the whole day there and decided to go to our hotel at night to maximize our little girl’s Disneyland experience. After having loads of fun, we started feeling tired and decided to go to the city via train. When we arrived at Tsim Sha Tsui, we walked around to look for our hotel and after doing all the check-in errands, we started feeling hungry. Like really hungry. After a long day with sore bodies, we wanted something comforting to eat for dinner. Known for its Wonton noodle and awesome egg noodles, this famous and iconic noodle house came to the rescue. It originated since the 1920s and has been a part of the Michelin Guide. Join us in this Hong Kong EATS edition of EATSplorations, as we share about our Mak’s Noodle – Tsim Sha Tsui, Hong Kong EATSperience! Enjoy!
Mak’s Noodle in Tsim Sha Tsui!
Mak’s Noodle has a lot of branches all over Hong Kong. We tried the one located at the ground floor in Lock Road, Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon. As this was the branch near our hotel. From the Tsim Sha Tsui MTR station, just look for the exit that will lead you to Lock Road and search for the green and white restaurant.
An array of noodle soups, dry noodles and congees with different toppings are the main items to choose from here at Mak’s Noodles. Their egg noodles are awesome! And their Wonton dumpling toppings are superb!
We invited our family to have dinner with us here and when we arrived, the restaurant was quite packed. It is quite small and it probably can accommodate around 30 diners. Since it was packed, we were not seated together. But to our luck, the table next to our family’s table became vacant right away. It felt like a fast food type of restaurant as the service was quick and we felt like we can’t stay for long after eating because there are still diners waiting to be seated.
The price range of the food menu items at Mak’s Noodle is from HKD 24 to 105 which is around Php 163.44 to 715.05. Mak’s menu has approximately 30 plus noodle dishes and a number of congee among many others. After taking a quick look at the menu, we decided to order a couple of their Signature Wonton Noodle bowls so that we can have a hot and comforting bowl of wonton, noodles and soup after a long first day in Hong Kong.
Wonton & Dumpling Noodles (HKD 56)
Love at first bite! After a long day, this is exactly what we needed! We loved that the soup was not salty for our own taste and that the wonton and dumplings tasted really fresh and flavorful.
Beef Brisket & Wonton Noodles (HKD 59)
This beef brisket and wonton noodles had a tastier soup coming from the beef brisket. And the beef brisket was super tender and the flavor was on point.
The egg noodles in both noodles dishes were really amazing! Freshly made and it was not soggy, the crunch was present in every bite. Another restaurant find that we will definitely recommend to those visiting Hong Kong. We will surely try their other offerings the next time we visit. That’s it for this edition of EATSplorations. Watch out for more of our EATSperiences in Hong Kong. ‘Till next time!
