Nissin Tomyam Noodles (HK Cafe Style)

Have the cravings for Nissin Noodles? Wanna eat them Hong Kong style? Don't wanna pay too much for it? I have the perfect solution for you. Do-it-yourself! So simple anyone can do it! Yes, now even you can enjoy delicious Hong Kong style Nissin Noodles at home.

Head down to your nearest supermarket and buy yourself a packet of Nissin Noodles. I chose the Tom Yam flavour ones because I like to eat tomyam. You may pick any flavour you desire. Heck, you may even use Maggie Mee or any other instant noodles you prefer.

I have never bought Nissin Noodles before and were surprised to find that they're quite big. One packet should be sufficient for most people (unlike Maggie Mee).

Now what makes this Hong Kong style is this; on your trip to the supermarket, pickup the following items: ham, sausages, luncheon meat and eggs. For the meat it doesn't matter if it's pork or chicken or even turkey. They taste just about the same anyway :)

Now once you're home proceed to your kitchen and get busy. You will need to cook the noodles and fry the ham, sausages, luncheon meat and eggs. If you are able to multitask then cook the noodles and fry the ingredients at the same time. If not fry the ingredients first because the noodles need to be eaten right after they are cooked otherwise they become too soggy. Another good advice would be to drain the oil from the fried items before putting them into your noodles. Oil is unhealthy and it tastes like crap.

Voila! An unhealthy but surprisingly satisfying dinner. Enjoy. Oh and btw... I still prefer Maggie Tomyam. It is simply the best instant tomyam noodles I have tasted!

I mentioned luncheon meat but I did not actually buy any for the dish I made. A single can of luncheon meat is too big for 2 persons. Ham can be bought by the slice while the hotdog and egg were readily available at home.

I actually had this in Draft mode for over a week. Didn't think anyone would post something similiar :)

i almost did (post something similar) coz for the first time, i had this type of noodle at CHATTERBOX, hk chan cha teng, in bangsar village and was thinking, heck, this looks like something bachelors would throw together. your description is the exact same thing i ate.

fbb: hehe... yeah... it's just simple bachelor food. I've got a friend with a mean recipe for Nong Shim Shin Ramen... it's very very weird but I'm tempted to try it.
