Mak's Noodle at Central, Hong Kong


This is always my noodle shop (every time when I visit Hong Kong) ... Mak's Noodle is always my first day eating place to visit -- for lunch in late afternoon day !!!

Mak's Noodle is very famous noodle shop with long established for 100 years ... from Mak's famous noodle quality -- small, soft, and rich taste since it was made from duck eggs (while others made from chicken eggs) .

These were what we ordered -- a must dish (dishes that ones should try) !!!
Wonton (Shrimp dumpling) with noodles or Wonton Min -- HK$28

See the above right picture, you can see the tasty and yummy shrimp wonton … It’s also another famous item of Mak’s noodle … Why??? It’s because a good quality of wonton flour with 2 big shrimps and something else for a good taste. During our eating, we always see a guy who handle shrimp wonton – so quick so profressional !!! By the way, don’t forget to notice size of shrimp … Ha Ha This’s why I love Mak’s Noodle.

Another tasty noodle dish – Chatney Pork with Noodles or Ja Lo HK$40 – Dry noodle topped with spicy tasty pork. This is what you can enjoy a real quality of noodle in dry version. But if you want to enjoy a watery version (with soup), go for Plain Noodle with Soup or Ching Min HK$25

But if you want to taste a Don’t forget to order vegetable – Vegetable with Oyster Sauce or Yau Choi HK$20 – a Hong Kong Kai Lan. Look at how Big young green and so crispy it is with special blended oyster sauce !!!

Some people say Mak's noodle is much more expensive than other noodle shop in HK since at the same price other give you bigger bowl. But in my view, even Mak's Noodle is in the small bowl, the taste is bigger than the bowl actually. You must try -- the full taste and the full history are in each bowl of Mak's.

Try any of 3 branches of Mak's Noodle as :

Mak’s Noodle Ltd.
Original Branch
: where I took pictures for this blog (somewhere somehow, I feel this place is the best -- really recommend this branch - full of taste and atmosphere)
77 Wellington Street, Central, Hong Kong Tel : 2854-3810
Open : 11.00 – 20.00
How to get there : MTR Central Station – out at D1 exit or D2 exit

Here are pictures from outside, so then you can notice Mak's Noodle Central easily ...

And also other 2 branches at :
44 Jardine’s Bazzar, Causeway Bay, Hong Kong
Tel : 2895-5310, 2895-5329
Open : 11.00 – 24.00

Shop No C03, 2nd Floor (Arrival Hall) China Hong Kong City,
33 Canton Road, Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon
Open : 7.00 – 22.00
Tel : 2730-0710

From my view, a setting at Arrival Hall is a bit dry. However, if you plan to go to Macau via Ferry from Kowloon, you can come to this China Hong Kong City Ferry building and give Mak's a try. See picture below ... It's in the Gourmet Express (Food Court Area)
