Thanks to the wonderful invitation, I recently went to Mak’s Chee for their new items sampling, the Champion Milk Tea and Cheesy Wonton.
The story of Mak’s Chee Authentic Wonton dates back to 1920s Guangzhou, China. Chee Kee by Master Mak Woon Chee (known as Chee) was one of the most famous noodle stalls across the city. While almost everyone was selling pork wonton, Chee decided to go against the grain and created his specialty fresh prawn wonton. The signature dish was one of the most popular street snacks in time and attracted eminent personages such as the former leader of the Republic of China Chiang Kai-Shek and First Lady Soong Mei-Ling, politicians Wang Jing-Wei and Chen Bi-Jun. His daintly noodle dish later earned him the “Guangzhou King of Wonton” title. Chee’s story has also been recorded in the Guangzhou Library archive.
In 1938, the Mak’s Family fled from calamity and moved to Hong Kong after the fall of Guangzhou. After the war, Chee’s son Mak En carried on noodle-making in Hong Kong using his inherited skills. The family recipe again earned its reputation and attracted many leaders and trend-setters.
In late 1980s, Mak En officially passed on the family recipe and noodle-making skills to his lineal descendent, who brought you Mak’s Chee Authentic Wonton Malaysia today.
Mak’s Chee “Champion Milk Tea” combines the techniques of KamCha (the only international brewing competition on Hong Kong styled milk tea) winners, and made with 100% Sri Lankan Ceylon Tea. Brewed by top quality highland Ceylon tea leaves; Broken Orange Pekoe (BOP), Broken Orange Pekoe Fannings (BOPF) and DUST, they found a well-balanced tea colour that is aromatic and smooth.
This is made possible through their partnership with KamCha Hong Kong to consolidate techniques of all previous winners of the competition, in the creation of Mak’s Chee Champion Milk Tea. They will be running a limited edition Muscular figured bottle containing the Champion Milk Tea from 5 December 2016 till 28 February 2017.
Mak’s Chee “Cheesy Wonton“, their all-time best-seller snack item Deep Fried Sea Prawn Wonton gets even better with added cheese!
Crisp on the outside and melting Mozzarella & Cheddar cheese with fresh sea prawn on the inside, it’s sinfully delicious! It will be available from 5 December 2016 till 28 February 2017.
