|Mak Man Kee Noodle Shop|
Wonton is a shrimp and pork based dumpling that is among one of the most common comfort food in Hong Kong's culture. When it's done properly it can be such a delight. Mak Man Kee Noodle Shop in Jordan is a wonton specialist and it is extremely popular so it is not unusual to see long queues flooding at the front door in the evening. The decor is very old school HK style, really poorly done with tiny tables and limited space.
The signature wontons were indeed fabulous, the shrimp was sweet, crisp and fresh. The skin of the wonton was soft and thin with lovely flavours coming out from the fish broth, it was really top notch wontons. The beef brisket and joint was also well done, the meat was really moist and the joint was silky smooth and flavoursome thanks to the long hours cooking in a light meat broth.

Mak Man Kee Noodle Shop is a perfect place for a quick and quality meal, you can be in and out in under 15 minutes which really makes it ideal for a working lunch provided there isn't a mad queue on the day. Don't expect any kind of service however, you will be forced to share a table with other diners and be asked to pay the bill as soon as you are done eating, no service and no ambience whatsoever, it is only the good value food that matters here.
