Taiwanese danzai noodles


Danzai noodles are small bowls of fresh noodles in piping hot soup, embellished with an assortment of condiments. The normal serving size is usually small, being considered more of a snack than an entree.

There are several important components to this dish, one of which is the soup broth, whose flavors are extracted from a large amount of prawn shell, other common ingredients are shrimp, minced pork, coriander and garlic. The dish was invented in 1895 by a fisherman who sold it from buckets strung on a bamboo pole.
