A Hearty Noodle Dish

This is ultimate “Tai Chow” food. Btw, “Tai Chow” are very basic Chinese foodie place (in the SEA region) where an open-air kitchen is usually connected to a coffee shop. These establishments are where your average Chinese would go for a simple dinner. Two favorite noodles from “Tai Chow” would be “Wat Tan Hor Fun” or Cantonese Fried – eggs based sauce and “Hokkien Mee” – sticky dark soy sauce. “Wat Tan” simply means more egg in the sauce. Here, The Viand simply substitute the HorFun with dried Egg-noodle (simply because Dried-noodles is always found in the Kitchen’s cabinet.. ahaha) and it tastes just as good! Here’s The Viand’s take on Wat Tan noodles (Cantonese Fried).




  • Dried Egg Noodles. This brand has very good texture.
    Any greens, slightly beaten Eggs, sliced Onion, Tung Choy, sliced pork (lean), sliced Fish Cake and cooked sliced Prawns. Corn Starch and lightly beaten Eggs.
    Finely chopped Parsley.


  • Sugar, Salt, Oyster sauce, Sesame oil and White pepper. All to taste. ** Note : Just dash of everything, if U prefer a stronger intensity of an ingredient flavor, simply add a little extra of that ingredient/spice – no rocket scientific measurement here. Always taste your Seasoning !!!



  • Step 1 : Start by boiling the Noodles till Al dente. When it’s done, ran it under tap water to stop it from continuing overcooked. Set aside
  • Step 2 : Saute the sliced Onion, sliced pork (lean), sliced Fish Cake and cooked sliced Prawns with some chopped Garlic till aromatic. Add water, Tung Choy, bring to boil and simmer a while. Add the greens. Thicken the sauce with Corn Starch, needs to be abit thick. Add Seasoning Ingredients. Pour Eggs in a circular motion. Don’t stir too much. Turn off the heat else Eggs will be over cooked.
    To serve, separates the Noodles into individual serving plate. Pour the sauce over the Noodles. Your delicious plate of Delicious “Wat Tan Noodles” is ready !!
