Mami is a noodle soup made with wheat flour noodles, broth and the addition of meat ( chicken, beef, pork) or wonton dumplings.
Its creation is generally attributed to
Ma Mon Luk, a Chinese immigrant who began selling noodles served with chicken broth in Binondo, Manila in 1920. Ma originally called his dish " gupit", after the Tagalog word for “cut”. Later, Ma decided to call it "Ma mi" ( simplified Chinese: 马面; traditional Chinese: 馬麵; Pe̍h-ōe-jī: ), literally meaning, "Ma’s noodles". Unfortunately, Ma did not have the name patented. Soon, imitation noodle soups sprouted with a name that was, personally, his. Ma-mi
