Birthday Longevity Noodles 寿面


We had this Birthday longevity noodles when we were having Chinese New Year lunch together with few relatives at Banting. The other day i tried to imitated this noodles at home for a light lunch..If for Hokkien people like me, usually we will have mee suah soup when Birthday but those restaurant outside usually serve this type of Birthday noodles. Nowadays we can easily have this type of noodles in any days.
There are various version of these noodles served in different restaurants such as mee suah (flour vermicelli), yee mien and etc. But one common in this noodle is that cooked thick gravy with vegetables, seafood and meat and pouring on top of the noodles. The version we tried was using wanton noodles.
