Review of 'Mak's Noodle'

Mak's Noodle has been around since the 1960s with it's first shop in Central it has expanded to a number of other locations including this one that we visited in The Peak Galleria. The branch is hard to miss on the far left hand side of the mall with a glass window looking into the kitchen where the noodles are made.

The small, long interior is quite basic though with “traditional” Chinese stools at each table. We were seated near the kitchen and right under the air conditioning - The later making us a bit uncomfortable but made the heat of the food all that more appreciated! Sitting down we were immediately offered very nice jasmine tea and got to work looking through the menu.

Being our first time we did not know where to start so I had the “hand-tossed noodles” with beef and tendon while my companion gave the tendon a miss and simply had the beef. The beef was tender and very flavourful while the tendon was deliciously gelatinous. The noodles, I have to say, were fairly bland so if I were to visit again, having seen some reviews on the web, I would probably go for the wonton soup instead. We had a side order of gai lan (steamed Chinese vegetable greens with hoi sin sauce) which was cooked perfectly (not overcooked).

The service was adequate, as you might expect in this inexpensive eatery where you pay your bill at the till near the door as you leave. Nicely we were never hurried through our meal so we were able to savour it a little bit (though the air conditioning did hurry us up a bit…).

The chef cooking the noodles in the window was interesting to watch as the different broths and noodles were prepared in such a tiny space.

Tasty and well worth a visit though try the wonton soup…
