Starting today, this is the standard for wonton noodle flavor. They’ve faithfully recreated the recipe of Hong Kong’s famous wonton noodle house, Cheong Kee Noodle House. If you come to a wonton noodle restaurant, you must try the wonton noodles. I ordered the large size. It came with clear broth, thin noodles, and five large shrimp dumplings. The texture of the noodles is somewhat unique. They’re incredibly chewy, almost to the point where they feel like they might snap. The shrimp dumplings are a perfect combination of tender on the inside and firm on the outside. Solid shrimp is visible through the thin, transparent dumpling skin. The shrimp meat is crunchy, and you hear a satisfying crunch with each bite. The broth is low in oil and has a clean, subtly refreshing taste. It’s fun to experience various textures within a single dish. On the contrary, the flavor is consistent from start to finish, making it incredibly satisfying. If you’re a fan of noodle dishes, be sure to try Maegi’s wonton noodles.

The difference from Hong Kong’s Cheong Kee Noodle House is that you can enjoy natural wine in a slightly more kitschy atmosphere. While the restaurant is cozy, there’s fun in admiring the tableware and interior details. They also have a considerable wine list, so I recommend enjoying wine with your meal, especially during the evening. They sell wine by the glass as well, so it’s not too heavy on the wallet. The interior is equipped with bar tables only and can accommodate about 10 people. It’s located somewhere between Hangangjin Station and Hannam Station, but Hannam Station Exit 1 is a bit closer. Be sure to try traditional Hong Kong wonton noodles at least once.
