Emperor Noodle

Instead of the usual egg noodle, this time I used Emperor Noodle or in Chinese 皇帝面 (huang di mien). I forgot to take a pic of the noodle. This is best what I can describe them for you. The shape is exactly like egg noodle but came in a dry form. The colour is slightly yellowish and the noodle is finer. What I like about emperor noodle? You do not have to go thru the hassle of precooking in boiling water, rinse with cold water to get rid of the starch and blanch in hot water again.

You can cook them in gravy form, stir-fried or soupy. This is an example in soupy form.

Anchovies or chicken stock
Blanched kailan


  1. Boiled anchovies for 30 minutes. Using a strainer, scoop anchovies and discard them. If you are using chicken stock, bring them to a boil.
  2. Blanch kailan in stock. Removed them.
  3. Put wantan in boiling stock. When wantan float to the top, scoop them up.
  4. Still with the same pot of anchovies/chicken stock, put in Emperor noodle. Cook till noodle soften.
  5. Serve noodle and soup in a bowl. Arrange your kailan and wantan on top before serving.

Another reason why I like Emperor Noodle.  It has a longer storage life.
