Hakka Noodles is one of my favourite street food since childhood. I can still remember the small street food joint at my home town, where a thin skinny man used to cook this noodles (the tastiest noodles I must say) with such a speed that often we just couldn’t notice his hands, only some flashes was there. His wok was very interesting, it was fully black, the shape was very uneven. But the outcome from that wok was outstanding. I can still feel the taste, oh I missed it so much. Like that man there are so many in this country scattered at many places working with many small or big eating joints, cooking hakka noodles every day. You may find many recipes on this, as it’s a very popular food. I’m sharing my version of Egg Chicken Hakka Noodles here.
I’ve tried to replicate the street like flavor and taste in this recipe of mine. Hope that it will work well for you. If you are trying this, please let me know about your experience. 🙂
