I always love noodle soup especially in winter and I would drink all the soup from the bowl. I love noodle soup from different Asian countries. As I grow up in Hong Kong, prawn wonton noodles soup is my most favourite soup. Then it would be Japanese ramen, Vietnamese pho, Thai Tom Yum seafood noodles soup.... After marrying my Malaysian husband, I discover more delicious noodles soup such as laksa, curry noodles, Ipoh chicken noodles soup to name a few and this Hokkien prawn noodles soup.
My mother-in-law gave me some of the Hokkine noodle paste from her last visit and I make it with some homemade noodles. It's a bit messy to make noodles but it's fun and rewarding. This noodles always goes well with Japanese Tonkasu ramen recipe.
Stay warm and happy cooking!
