This noodle dish is reserved for special occasions. As the name suggested, it symbolises long life and is very popular on birthdays.

Two eggs, poached to translucent perfection float in a delicious mushroom soy broth, topped with smoky mince and garlic chives. It is a textural, flavoursome delight.

Have a happy birthday with a lot of love from all of us.

Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 20 minutes
Makes: 4-6 servings

1 packet of longevity noodles
7 eggs
200g chives
200g shiitake mushroom
1 small onion
200g minced pork
2 tablespoon fried onion flakes
3 tablespoon soy sauce
1 teaspoon chicken powder
1 teaspoon mirin
3 tablespoon cooking oil
1 teaspoon black rice vinegar
Salt & pepper to season
3 cups of chicken/pork stock

Blanch the longevity noodle according to packet instructions. Drain and set aside.

Add oil to the pot and sauteed the shiitake mushrooms and diced onions.
Remove and set aside.

Add some more oil into the hot pot and brown the pork mince.
Season with a dash of white pepper.
Stir fry until well caramelised and fragrant.

Add the sauteed mushrooms and onion in with the pork mince.
Add soy sauce and let the mushroom, onion and mince absorb the flavour.

Pour in the stock liquid and bring it to boil.
Add the chicken powder and salt.
Taste to season.

Crack an egg into a ladle and dunk it slowly in to the boiling broth.

Submerge the egg for about 2-3minutes.
Remove and gently placed in a bowl.
Continue with the rest of the eggs.

You can almost see the golden gooey goodness underneath the translucent egg white. This is what I call a perfect "Chicken Stock Poached Egg".

Add the blanched longevity noodles into the pot and stir gently to loosen them up.

Season with mirin and cooking wine.

The noodles will absorb the broth quickly, make sure you are happy with with seasoning. Adjust if necessary.

Let the broth boil for another 5-10 minutes.
Add garlic chives in the final 3 minutes.

Divide noodles into 6 equal portions.
Add soup broth into the noodle bowls.
Gently place the poached eggs on top.
Garnish with fried onion flakes.
Serve immediately.

Add a few drops of black rice vinegar to intensify the flavour.

Our tradition: Only the birthday boy or girl gets 2 poached eggs, everyone else just receives one. This is just to highlight that today is their special day.
