Wonton Noodles

Wonton noodles, also known as "wanton min", is a Cantonese noodle dish which is quite popular among Malaysian Chinese. The dish can be served either in a hot broth or with black sauce. As you can see in the picture, I prefer the latter. ;) The red meat on top of the noodles is Chinese barbecue pork, the locals call it char siu.

A wonton (also spelled wantan, wanton, or wuntun) is a type of dumpling made by spreading a square wrapper (a dough skin made of flour, egg, water, and salt) flat in the palm of one's hand, placing a small amount of filling (pork+shrimps) in the center, and sealing the wonton into the desired shape by compressing the wrapper's edges together with the fingers.

Wontons are commonly boiled and served in soup or sometimes deep-fried.
