(Last Updated on October 23, 2023 by Amiee)

Soy sauce pan-fried noodles is a traditional Cantonese delicacy. It is the favorite snack for Guangzhou people to eat for morning tea, and also a home-cooked fried noodle on the dining table of ordinary families.

The ingredients are simple but delicious. The soul of fried noodles is mixed seasoning with oyster sauce. We all know that oyster sauce is extracted from oysters, so it has the sweetness of seafood. Using a mixed sauce mixed with oyster sauce to stir-fry the noodles also gives the noodles a rich seafood flavor.

  • Egg noodles, I bought ready-made thin noodles made with eggs.
  • Oyster sauce, is extracted from oysters, so it has the sweetness of seafood.

  • Oil, just choose the oil commonly used in Chinese cooking, such as soybean oil, sunflower oil, etc.
  • Mung bean sprouts, The fried mung bean sprouts have a crisp texture. Usually,  the two ends are removed and the middle part is used.
  • Yellow chive, Yellow chives are commonly used in Cantonese fried noodles and are crispier and more tender than the green chives.
