“Home-cooked Ee-Fu Noodles is irresistibly delicious”
Braised Ee-Fu Noodles is a popular noodle dish in Cantonese cuisine which you may find it almost in every Chinese restaurant in Asia (e.g. Hong Kong, Singapore, China and etc) or overseas Chinatown (I ate this at Chinatown in San Francisco), for casual dining or during special occasions like birthday celebration (especially old folk’s) as Ee-Fu Noodles symbolizes longevity. Ee-Fu Noodles usually braised with dark soy sauce, especially in Singapore and Malaysia. The taste of Ee-Fu noodles is marvelous with its aroma and interesting chewy texture in the palate!
Ee-Fu noodles aka Yi-Mien (伊面) is a kind of thin flat Chinese egg noodles made from wheat flour, normally presented in the shape of flat or rounded patty-like dried brick. They are golden brown in colour and usually sold in dry form, easily available in supermarket and Chinese grocery shops.
We like to eat braised Ee-Fu Noodles, but it’s often too salty when dined out. Perhaps they have to put much MSG to enhance the dish for their commercial purposes. Hence, I cooked my homemade braised Ee-Fu Noodles instead! No MSG, healthy, and a quick-cooked dish you may easily make as dinner during weekdays! One thing I like about home-cooking, not just for the health and balancing diet, but the freedom of putting a variety of quality ingredients! I called my recipe as ‘assorted’ Ee-Fu Noodles as assorted ingredients were added into this braised noodles (smiling).
