I picked up this pack of Go Cha Dried Thin Noodle from Smart and Save in Lansdowne Mall. The noodle, Min Sin (in Cantonese) reminds me of my childhood days. Whenever I’m sick, my late grandma or my late mom will make me “Min Sin”. It is a very soft noodle and I believe its gentle to your digestive system. That’s why it’s given to sick people.
I cant recall exactly how much this pack of noodle cost but its around $3. This pack of noodle is enough to serve my family of four.
Inside the package, you’ll find a pack of dried thin noodle, a pack of tapioca starch, a spice pack and a hot chili pack.
The instructions to make the noodle is very simple. Bring 2000 cc of water to a boil and add in the noodle, the spice pack and the hot chili oil and boil for 3 minutes.
Dissolve the tapioca starch with some cold water and add into the boiling noodles to thicken the sauce. You may also add some cooked oysters or any other cooked meat of your preference at this point.
I served the noodle with some thinly sliced omelette and garnished with some cilantro. This is certainly a simple comfort food.
