The One With Mak Siu Kee Traditional Wonton Noodle – ‘Noods in the ‘Hoods

Hot on the tail since my last review of my fav eating Indian place in Happy Valley, here’s another one – Mak Siu Kee traditional wonton noodle.

Happy Valley seems not short of noodle places. The trick is to find a nice one which won’t cause a huge dent in your wallet. Mak Siu Kee, decent as it was, is too expensive in my opinion. I was there for lunch one fine day as I was, err, on a bit of a loose end.

Shrimp Wonton With Noodle (HK$45)

A seemingly simple dish. The wontons were crunchy to the bite, its shrimp fresh and succulent in a way I find more fitting for a salad. The accompanying bowl of soup has much MSG. The egg noodle itself was alright, though I would prefer it to be done the Malaysian way; tossed with think, dark soy sauce. Overall the combination was quite pleasant.

Century Eggs (HK$18)

If you read this blog long enough you would have known my long love affair with century eggs. The eggs at Mak Siu Kee didn’t disappoint, though I wish they served it with slices of fermented ginger instead of spring onions.

The service was impeccable. It was peak hour when I visited, and I occupied an entire table fit for four… yet never once I felt pressurised to finish my meal in a hurry despite the queue outside.

The food was only above average, but there must be something this place is doing right with its legion of regulars. I will return again.
