Mak's Noodles - Hong Kong

The Australian Dairy Company was a cafe in Jordan (on the Kowloon side) was highly recommended to us. Yes it does seem weird to go all the way to HK to eat at an Australian Dairy cafe, but our friend did emphasise the yumminess of the scrambled eggs here. And so, we trekked to Jordan on early Thursday morning to look for this Aussie joint only to be greeted by a sign which said... "closed on Thursdays". NOOOO!!!!!! Luckily, there was this awesome aroma wafting from next door - from Mak's Noodles. Wasn't opened yet, but we snacked on awesomely fresh churn fun (steamed rice noodles) from around the corner whilst we waited for this famous wonton noodle soup place.

Mak's Noodles is another one of the noodle places with a Michelin Star. Not the branch in Jordan, but the branch in Central I think. Nonetheless, it couldn't be bad!

We ordered yummy fresh soy bean milk drinks (HK$5), I had their speciality - wonton noodle soup whereas hubby went a bit more elaborate and opted for the wonton noodle soup with beef brisket. We were not disappointed at all! The wontons were delicious. So fresh, so tasty, so sweet and so crunchy were the prawns, wrapped snuggly in thin wonton egg pastry. The noodles were cooked to perfection and the soup was simply addictive. Hubby also liked his addition of beef brisket - soft and tender - but it did cloud his soup base a bit.

So we didn't get super awesome scrambled eggs on toast, but we did get tummy satisfying dumplings and noodles for breakfast! :)
