I've bookmarked this Shrimp Roe Wanton Noodle recipe since the AFF Macau in Jan/Feb 2014!! hehehe exactly one year ago and how times flies, now finally I've attempted this wonderful noodle dish :D I was searching high and low for the shrimp roe noodle which is not commonly available in most supermarket. This noodle itself tasted really special, unlike the usual dried/fresh egg noodle. They are embedded with dried shrimp roe which makes the difference in taste and very chewy too! Chewy, flavourful noodle served with succulent shrimp wanton....perfect match!
