I've been reading your blog for a while (also a bit of a latter day Chinese food obsessive). Anyway, I was in HK a couple of weeks ago and also made the trip to Maks. Even though the servings are small, I enjoyed every drop of that broth and every bite of those wontons. Truly delicious. I also got taken out for a fantastic meal at a place called Crystal Jade La Mian Xiao Long Bao which is in the big mall at Times Square. Wonderful, tiny eels stir fried with Chinese leek, and lovely, chewy jelly fish.

Anyway, I'm off to Hunan province at the end of this week, and shall let you know if I pick up on any gems whilst there.


YAY! Great post, good to read about your foodie experiences!

Sharmila - glad you like my blog. Sounds like we missed out on an opportunity with Crystal Jade La Mian Xiao. Can't beat a bit of jellyfish. Let me know how Hunan is, as much as I like Fuchsia Dunlop's cook book about the region's food it's not on my Chinese roster yet - I could be convinced though.

Kavey - there should hopefully be a few more for you over the next few months. I've been in Kuala Lumpur for the last week but still have a couple more HK posts to do then another 3 or 4 so far from here. As strange as it seems being unemployed it's hard to find the time to write them. Going to give it an hour later on today so should hopefully catch up though.

delicious wonton

Pork, prawn, and water chestnut, all the rememory of the good old days when I was young, wonton is my favorite Chinese food and all. My style is chicken wonton, and pan-fried wonton is better for me. By the way, combine wonton with spaghetti is as good as wonton noodle soup.
Thank you for sharing :D


It seems like Mak's just doing a very traditional wonton soup (four wontons placed under the noodles). I'll definitely have to hit it up the next time I visit HK.
