Mak's Noodle

I literally hear the screams from my foodie pals when Mak's Noodle opened its doors in Singapore. For those who has been to Hong Kong, Mak's is well known for its Cantonese fare that serve springy noodles as well as dumplings pack of chunky prawn.

Since Center point is undergoing partial renovation, the crowd in the mall is generally lesser than thrice the amount of headcounts they used to have. And for Mak's being reputable in their food, I am considered lucky as there was no queue like what I saw in their Westgate Branch.

Service standards was fast and steady. Servers conversed in Cantonese, creating a different environment and unusual feel in that split seconds. Every table is also unique with its own table number tagging at the edge of the table.

Unique Table Number

There was no utensils available on the table like most restaurant have. To our surprise, the servers told us that they were available in the drawer attached to the table.

Texture of the noodles were springy and noodle strands are generally thinner. Servings portion were nothing unusual from what they had been practicing all these while in their Hong Kong Branches. Such taste from the soup reminded me of my last trip in Hong Kong about 4 years back where I had the same thing from Mak's Noodle somewhere near the Peak.

Wanton & Dumpling Noodle Soup - $8.50
Since Wantons & Dumplings are their signature's we ordered such combination in the noodle soup. Just exactly like what people had been raving about, their wanton was thinly wrapped and through the translucent skin, you get to have a gauge of the size of the prawn in it.

Succulent Wanton
The style of Dumplings was similar to the wantons, just that the latter comes in a rounder shape while dumplings are wrapped in elongated shape. Ingredients like fine cuts of black fungus and fresh shrimps were added. I still can remember the bite on the shrimps, simply fabulous!

Another of their signature will be Toss Noodle with Chutney Pork. Soup came in a separate bowl topped with chives. However, do note that the soup is different from the ones in dumplings and wantons as they tasted alot more peppery here.

Toss Noodle with Chutney Pork - $8.30
Is this the Chinese version of Bolognese Sauce Spaghetti (Angel's Hair) ? Seems like it! The sauce is utterly scrumptious and not any fatty. Awesome! Have a good toss of thin noodles and the Chutney Pork in an evenly manner.

Yummy
Aren't you glad that you don't have to travel all the way to Hong Kong to have a taste of Mak's Noodle? It's simply worth a try if you have not done it.
