Here’s the secret to the burnt pot Nabeyaki egg noodle. The reason why it is called burnt pot or Guo Shao , is that the pot is heated till red hot over a stove. After which, the cooked noodles and ingredients are poured in. This is Emo Snacks latest creation.
The noodle is then poured into this burnt pot. The soup upon contact with the red hot pot sizzles furiously and the aroma of the soup is prominently dispersed into the surrounding air. It literally filled the air with a delicious aroma of which ever soup is ordered. This is Emo Snacks reason for using this burnt pot for this nabeyaki series. This sizzling bowl of noodle soup is served immediately upon plating for the diner to enjoy this piping hot bowl of comfort food.
Check out the size of these tiger prawns used in this nabeyaki egg noodle. The prawns have a good amount of head butter and thick meat. The inclusion of these good size prawns into the soup add a sweet depth of flavour to the soup base. The diameter of the pot is kept small to retain as much heat as possible. The depth of the pot is of a good size to hold enough ingredients to fill the tummy of an adult.
Emo Snacks chef recommends the below matching noodles with 6 types of soup base for nabeyaki. The nabeyaki starts from ($9.90) for the original flavour, $10.90 for the rest of the soup flavours. Kimchi goes best with the steamed rice, milk soup goes best with chicken mee, tomato goes well with udon for a tangy flavour with real tomato chunks. Mala soup base are for those who loves heat and savoury bite to their noodles. Tom yum has a sharp appetising kick to it, made with lemon grass, kaffir leaves, lemon juice and more. It is the best noodle soup to get on a hot sweltering day. Original bone soup for those who love a clean tasting soup. All these soup uses big bones and chicken as the base broth.
These are the 5 noodle choices for the nabeyaki. You can choose from udon (+$1), Taiwan egg noodle, chicken mee, bee hoon or steamed rice. The most popular choice is the chicken mee as these are not commonly found in the local noodle dishes. This noodle is very fine and has a bite to it. It taste almost like mee sua that is fried and then cooked into noodle soup. It also has a nice roasted aroma to it like our yee mee aka e-fu noodles. The other TW egg noodle is thicker and has a more springy bite to it. This noodle holds the flavour of the soup better than the chicken mee as it is thicker and more porous. It depends on what kind of texture you like your noodles to be, there will be one that suit your palate.
