Yi Mein

Yi mein (the local Chinese call it yee mee) is a variety of flat Cantonese egg noodles made from wheat flour. The slightly chewy and slightly spongy texture of the noodles is due to the soda water used in making the dough (as opposed to regular non-carbonated water), which was then fried and dried into flat patty-like dried bricks.

My breakfast an hour ago - ground pork yi mein soup
