This is like the authentic sai yung wonton noodle that comes in a small bowl and the wonton is hidden under the noodle. What is so special about Mak’s Chee Wonton Noodle? I would say that it’s the springy and thin that will not expend even we left it in a bowl with soup for more than 10 minutes. And their wontons are decent size too with fresh sea prawns and ingredients. The sour is light and clear just the right taste.

This is one of their signature also dried noodle, its simple without any thick or heavy sauces. I love the fragrant the dried prawn roes plus a dash of sesame oil. The dried prawn roes is slightly salted gives the flavour and aroma to the noodle. I like the springy noodle lightly coated with fragrant and flavourful dried prawn roes.
