Mak’s Chee Authentic Wonton Opens in Mid Valley KL
Hong Kong’s famous Mak’s Chee Authentic Wonton opens their third outlet in Malaysia. The new outlet is located on the Lower Ground Floor of Mid Valley Megamall Kuala Lumpur (opposite Nandos). If you have craving on Hong Kong food especially the wanton noodle and the milk tea, this is the place you should visit.
Mak Chee started in Guangzhuo, China in 1920s and they moved to Hong Kong in 1938. Since then, their popular noodle earned its reputation and attracted many leaders and trend-setters. Mak’s patrons include a long list of famous celebrities, socialites, food critics, and iconic figures in Hong Kong history, such as opera singer Sun Ma Sze Tsang, Asia’s gambling tycoon Yip Hon, song writer Uncle Jim, food critics Chua Lam and Suzie Wong. In late 1980s, Mak En officially passed on the family recipe and noodle-making skills to his eldest son-in-law Chef Johnny Yu, who become one of the Founders of Mak’s Chee Authentic Wonton Malaysia today.
Mak’s Chee opened their first outlet in Malaysia in 2016 and this is our first time we tasted their food (please don’t judge us). We went to the Mak’s Chee Mid Valley outlet and it was packed.
When you walk in, you will find more space at the back of the restaurant. The restaurant is bigger than it looks from the outside.
Now, let us share the latest Mak’s Chee menu in Mid Valley.
If you look at the prices of the food in Mak’s Chee, it is very competitive compare to other shopping mall restaurants. The Mak’s Chee prices in Malaysia is cheaper than Mak’s Chee Hong Kong as we were told.
This is something that we always order whenever we travel to Hong Kong and Macau, their version of milk tea. You get the extra tea flavour that you can’t get it here. The good news is Mak’s Chee is selling it here in Malaysia and it tasted the same like the ones in Hong Kong.
This is their wonton noodle with soup. We are not a huge fan of soup based wonton noodle as our Malaysian version is dry, dark and flavourful. However, the soup is very strong in flavour and it is not MSG soup. It is pork broth as we were told. The wontons are hidden within the noodle so you have to ‘dig’ it out. It is best to enjoy this version of soup based wonton noodle within one minute.
The wonton is made from sea prawn and there is no pork inside like the ones from Hong Kong.
Signature Sea Prawn Dry Noodle with Prawn Roe is the one we loved most. You have to add additional RM 5 for the dried prawn roe or dried shrimp roe. Whenever we travel to Hong Kong or Macau, this is one of the dishes we always have.
The noodle is dry and sprinkled with generous amount of dried prawn roe and the wontons are hidden inside the noodle. The noodles texture is al-dente but this version is dry and you can bits of the crunchiness of the dried prawn roe. To be honest, not everyone enjoyed this but we loved this. So it is just the matter of your taste bud.
This is a typical Hong Kong food. This is simple and nothing complicated. The Cursory Rice comes with premium pork luncheon meat and double sunny side up eggs. If you watched the video, you have to the luncheon meat and eggs to pieces and mix it together. For luncheon meat lovers, you should order this.
Overall, the food is better than we expected. We loved the Signature Sea Prawn Dry Noodle with Dried Prawn Roe, Milk Tea and The Cursory Rice. For price wise, it is ‘standard shopping mall’ pricing and the service is good for a new outlet. We will definitely come back again for the noodles and milk tea.
