Mak's Chee Authentic Prawn Wonton NoodleQuality flour and golden duck eggs are used to make the noodles, with special dough flattening techniques to achieve springiness. Mak's Chee insists on smaller noodle portions to maintain its desired texture. Fresh sea prawns and dried prawn roes are used to create fresh, crunchy wontons with a "goldfish tail", while its soup is slow-cooked to perfection using dried halibut, prawn roes, and pork bones.
Wontons are placed beneath the noodles to preserve its decades-long tradition, while the soup is poured in lastly to maintain the springy texture of the noodles.
