Eat Hong Kong Noodles at Mak’s Noodle
I’m still hungry!
There’s a noodle place across the street.

You know you’re spoiled when you don’t know what bad food is. You don’t have to eat bad food to know it’s bad, but when you only eat good food, it’s hard to know where it excels and assume all noodles are like it; at least for me.
Noodles! I love noodles almost as much as I love dim sum. Unlike dim sum, I’m a touch more particular about my noodles than most. I can’t eat enough yellow egg noodles. Sure I’ll eat the others but if I have a choice….
Where Is It?
In the southwestern part of Causeway Bay, Hong Kong Island, you will find this very small, inconspicuous restaurant that looks like it came out of the 80’s. It actually probably did.
We were staying at the Crown Plaza Hong Kong Hotel Causeway Bay location and if you know where that is, then you know where Mak’s Noodle is. It’s literally across the street. I see this place every time I leave the hotel and every time I come back to the hotel. And every time, it casually calls to me, enticing me with the call of their noodles; their enchanting Noodle Call!
What We Ordered!
We had noodles of course. What else would we get from Mak’s Noodles? To be fair, there’s a lot on their menu. A lot more than I could ever eat in the handful of visits to the place, but I’ll try. Nadia was in the mood for their beef noodle while I ate their wanton noodle. I really enjoyed everything they had. I enjoyed it so much that I ate another order of dry noodle. It’s just that good!
With that being said, I heard from some friends that they think it’s a touch expensive but for the robust flavor of the broth and mouth watering beef and wantons, I find it worth the extra couple dollars. Also, when people tell me that complaints about something, they have to counter and bring me somewhere that is better…
I’m still waiting…
Sometimes I dream about this place and their noodles. No, I’m not going to go there and beg to cook for a living, but it would be super cool to drop by every now and again and have a go behind the stove (I’ve had the most minimal experience in a professional kitchen that is now closed).
Looking back, probably not the healthiest thought, but I think I need to work out more so I can eat more and try more things on their menu. You gotta understand that I don’t go back to Hong Kong as often as I would like and my opportunities to eat Mak’s Noodles (actually can be said for any given spot) are limited.
