For dinner, we went to the famous Mak Man Kee. This 3rd generation family owned noodle house has been serving some of the best wontons since the 60s. Shrimp wontons are one of Hong Kong's most iconic dishes.
Mak Man 3 is not a fancy place, but OMG, their food was incredible. The wontons were made with 100% fresh shimp; not frozen and no pork added. As shrimp lovers, we SWOONED and didn't talk until our bowls were empty. The wontons were sweet, succulent and had that delightful bounce that only comes from very fresh shrimps.
Their sui gow dumplings had shrimp, pork and shitake mushrooms had more umamai, and still retained the sweetness of shrimp.
The actual noodles were wonderfully springy and crunchy while it picked up the bright shrimp and dace broth.
Just so we had fiber for the day, we ordered the classic Chinese broccoli with oyster sauce.
Not gonna lie, we each could have easily eaten 2 bowls, but we were saving room for dessert from down the multitude of shops.down the street.
