1 small packet of misua (thin wheat noodles)
8 cups chicken and pork broth
8 pcs dumplings
8 pcs lobster balls
1 small packet of wood ear fungus, washed, soaked, preboiled and sliced
1 large carrot, cut into 1-inch thick slices

2 tbsp soy sauce
2 tbsp sesame oil for frying

1 tsp of sugar, to taste
Ground pepper, to taste
For the garnish:
2 hardboiled eggs, cut into halves
1 stalk coriander leaves
In a pan on medium heat, fry the garlic, onions and star anise in sesame oil to extract the aroma.
Once the onion and garlic are fragrant and slightly softened, add the chicken and pork broth, soy sauce, and oyster sauce. Add ground pepper and sugar to taste.
Bring the liquid to a boil, then add in the carrots, wood ear fungus, shiitake mushrooms, lobster balls, dumplings and napa cabbage.
Finally, add the misua (thin wheat noodles) and cook for 4 mins.
You may substitute misua (thin wheat noodles) with any other noodles of your choice.
If you do not have time to make your own chicken and pork broth, you may substitute with pre-made broth.
You may substitute wood ear fungus with dried shiitake mushrooms.
Prepare your 2 serving bowls and pour an equal amount into both.
Top each bowl with the hardboiled eggs and some fresh coriander leaves.
The dish is now ready to serve!
