Recently, they sent Gibson an email to tell more about them, and here he is sharing the original text, so that we know who is coming to town:

Mak’s Chee Authentic Wonton recipe originated from a street-side eatery in Guangzhou before World War II by Mr. Mak Woon-Chee. The war brought the Mak’s Family to Hong Kong and Woon-Chee’s son, nicknamed Mak En, carried on the recipe and tradition by starting his own food stall in 1968.

In 1984, Mak En retired and renounced his hawker stall license to the Hong Kong government. The story continues when Mak En’s eldest son-in-law and skilled descendent, Johnny Yu reincarnate a similar business under his father-in-law’s name on Wellington Street, Hong Kong, which later received Michelin’s Bib-Gourmand title under his guidance.

From there on, the Mak’s brand grew in popularity in Hong Kong and dish was enjoyed by a long list of famous personalities such as the Former President of the Republic of China - Chiang Kai-Shek and First Lady Soong May-Ling; the infamous food critic Chua Lam as well as American chef, author & TV host Anthony Bourdain, have all tasted the wonton noodle recipe.

Staying true to the classic 100 years old recipe, Mak’s Chee restaurant in Malaysia, will be managed under the guidance of Chef Johnny Yu, the first grandchildren in-law of the Guangzhou’s King of Wonton Noodle, Mak Woon-Chee. Chef Johnny Yu 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.

With more than 40 years of experience and distinctive skills in wonton noodle making, he is now spreading the family’s wing by venturing into Malaysian market with the original Mak’s family recipe.

Mak’s Chee restaurant offers fast casual dining with a variety of tantalising and succulent menu with focus on the signature Mak’s Chee wonton noodle, “gold fish” shaped wonton, special herb blended dumplings (sui kau), braised beef brisket, shrimp 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.
