Braised Ee Fu Noodles (For Pigpigscorner)

I. Am. So. Honoured.

I just realised I am the first Guest Blogger for Pig Pig's Corner! What a privilege. What an honour. This certainly counts as one of the high points of my blogging journey so far.

I still remember when I first started blogging - my photos were laughable and my readership comprised a grand total of 3 people (I, Me and Myself). Pig Pig's Corner was one of the few established bloggers who kindly cast a glance my way, and for that, I will always be grateful. Fast forward 16 months later, and today, I am doing a guest post for them.

Wow. The world works in mysterious ways! Thank you, Ann and Jeff, for this wonderful opportunity. :)

Now, the dish. If you do a quick scour of Pig Pig's Corner, you will see an impressive repertoire of dishes. As I jokingly asked Ann, "What have you NOT cooked?" Eventually, I figured less is more, and decided on a very simple dish - Braised Ee Fu Noodles (伊府面) - something everyone can make.

I am sure you must have heard of this dish, even if you have never eaten it. It is on the menu of any Chinese restaurant worth its salt, and never fails to appear at wedding banquets.



Of course, you don't need special occasions to make this. It is such a quick and simple dish, you can whip it up any time you feel like having noodles. For the recipe and more photos, please hop over to the wonderful Pig Pig's Corner.

  3. Oh wow! I love this noodle too! I usually buy the Ee fu noodles from Kwong Cheong Thye, which is fried, and not dry. It's very easy to cook too! We always finished a box of 3 slabs of huge noodles for a meal. Thanks for sharing the way you did yours. It's a all time favourite for me.

  11. I like Ee Fu noodles a lot but some of my friends always ask me why I like to taste "rubber-bands"? Not the texture but the taste is somehow not welcomed by all - beats me!

  12. Nice sharing. I'm a noodle lover. I know this suits my taste.
    By the way, I saw Taiwanese use yellow chives in their cooking show, but I still haven't spotted any here.
