World-famous wonton noodles draw fans from near and far

With its roots dating back to pre-World War II Guangzhou, Mak’s Noodle is now run by a third-generation descendant of the Mak family and located on Wellington Street. The shop specialises in wonton noodles, and is a favourite of overseas journalists, having been covered by CNN and Time magazine, among others. Reputedly, the noodle recipe has remained unchanged since the time of the current Mak’s grandfather. The wontons are very traditional, filled with fresh shrimp, and come in teaspoon-size bites. The relatively small portion sizes mean that the noodles don’t sit in the broth for too long, hence won’t easily turn soggy.
