Jazzed Up Instant Noodles

What “Gong Zai Mian“, to the Hong Kongers; is equivalent to “what Maggi is to us, Malaysian”; basically, ‘Instant Noodles’..ha.. ha. Contrary to popular belief that the name came from the cute ‘boy mascot (gong zai)’ on the packaging, the name actually came from a certain ‘used-to-be’ very popular brand, call “Doll”. To a Hong Konger, it is considered pathetic to be eating Gong Zai Mian. So, I guess they jazzed it up a little with Egg, Sausage and Ham, to make ..it, errr… less pathetic? *smile* Here’s The Viand’s take of, Gong Zai Mian (Instant Noodles – Hong Kong’s style). (shhh… actually, forgot to add some greens!) Oh..welll..ha..ha..




  • Instant Noodles (any brand will do – here’s a famous Korean Ramen, The VianD simply preferred the texture better), Eggs, Sliced Ham (or Luncheon meat) and Sausages. Ooo, ofcos U can add some greens, The VianD simply forgot!!!



  • Step 1 : Start by frying the Egg. Then lightly saute the Sausages and Ham. Set aside.
  • Step 2 : Then boil the Instant Noodles till ‘Al Dente’ (soggy Noodles are BAD Noodles). Loosen the Noodles by a pair of Chopstick or Tong. Make sure the water is boiling b4 putting in the Noodles.
    Drained Noodles. Run thru cold water to stop it form continue cooking and get rid of starch. Set aside.
  • Step 3 : Bring another pot of water to boil. Measure the amount by the size of the bowl U would serve the Noodles (minus a little). One bowl to one pack of Noodles. Add in all the pre-packed seasoning (less if U like).
    Doing the soup-base separately is to make sure U Do NOT get a bowl of waxy soup..LoL Meanwhile separately Noodles into individual bowl. Top with the Fried Egg and sauteed Sausages/Ham. Add soup and, garnish and serve hot immediately else the Noodles will get soggy !
