Mak’s Chee, the brand new restaurant that cooks up near 100 years old authentic prawn wonton noodle recipe made famous by Guangzhou’s King of Wonton Noodle, Mak Woon Chee is now open at 1 Utama (Lot LG 311D, opposite Cold Storage).
With the opening, Malaysian foodies can now enjoy the signature Mak’s Chee wonton noodle, prepared by Michelin Chef Johnny Yu who is also the first grandchild-in-law of Mak Woon Chee.
Staying true to the near 100 years old classic recipe, Mak’s Chee restaurant in 1 Utama is its first outlet in Malaysia. The restaurant is managed under the guidance of Master Chef Johnny Yu, who mastered Mak’s wonton noodle recipe and cooking style since he was 17 years old under the tutelage of Mak En, his father-in-law.
Now, with more than 40 years of experience and distinctive skills in wonton noodle making, Mak’s Chee is spreading the family’s wing by venturing into Malaysian market. The restaurant offers fast casual dining with a variety of tantalising and succulent menu.
Focus is on the signature Mak’s Chee wonton noodle, “gold fish” shaped wonton, special herb blended dumplings (sui kau), braised beef brisket, prawn roe and savoury rich broth with a unique presentation in a classic petite bowl ensuring the special noodle taste and texture to remain al dente and springy. With the debut of Mak’s Chee brand in Malaysia, the restaurant is aiming for growth targeting local non-halal communities, urban families and working professionals and authentic food lovers.
We had tried their signature is this Sea Prawn Wonton Noodle Soup, or known as ‘Sai Yong’ (with this term as the wonton is hide under the noodle) @ RM12.90. Soup is rich in flavour as it is prepared from dried sole and pork bones.
Serve in a medium small bowl which is the tradition that hide this big 4 wonton underneath it. Skin is not thick as you can see the colour of the prawn and pretty generous in ingredient. With the springy noodles and the huge wantan. Portion wise to us is pretty small.
Mak’s Chee restaurant is open daily from 11:00 am to 10:00 pm.
