Mak’s Noodle Singapore – Yummy Boiled Pork Liver

Wanton Noodle Soup @ Mak's Noodle Singapore

The name Mak’s Noodle in HongKong has always been associated with wanton noodle. It is not surprising, as they are one of the top names in HK when it comes to wanton noodle. Currently, it has 5 branches and I have visited their branch in Jordan a few times.

Its Singapore outlet opens its door in July 2015 to much fanfare, however, the reviews so far was underwhelming so I did not take much notice of it. Only recently, LD and I gave it a visit.

A must try here is their Boiled Pork Liver ($15.20). Yes, no joke. When we are in HK, delicious boiled pork liver is abundance, not comparable to Singapore. The version here is plump, sweet, a bit of springy and juicy with the Oink Oink liver creaminess at the end. As taught by our HK friends, HK version of pork liver tasted better is because the chefs have taken the effort to washed off the irony taste in it; The soy sauce did a perfect job in enhancing the flavour of the pork liver. Absolutely delicious.

Their signature Wanton Noodle Soup ($7.40 for Regular, $9 for Large) has a super springy noodle. The consommé like broth is robust and filled with the essence of prawns. Meanwhile, the wanton is a slight let down, instead of crunchy and bouncy, it is firm and dense. A slight let down in comparison to the HK version.

Tossed Noodle with Shrimp Roe and Oysters Sauce ($8) is comparable to the HK outlet. The flavourful oyster sauce and shrimp roe gave the springy egg noodle a much-needed OMPH. Although I must say, I like the SG version better as the shrimp roe is not a pungent as the version in HK.

Mak’s An Congee ($12), the signature congee of Mak’s Noodle. The ingredients are generous, including pork liver, mushroom and chicken. The congee is velvety smooth with a subtle comforting flavour.

We visited the restaurant after the busy lunch period. The service is friendly, no fuss and efficient. Décor of the restaurant is simple and it has the same feel as Mak’s Noodle outlet in HongKong.

Overall, the quality of the wanton noodle is getting close to the version in HongKong. We will return for the Boiled Pork Liver, as it is just heavenly. Cheers!!
