shrimp flavored noodles in Chinatown?
I'm planning on visiting Chinatown this week and was looking for recommendations on high quality shrimp flavored noodles. On my last trip about 4 years ago I found Sao Tao shrimp flavored noodles that came in a fancy box. I loved them but I heard they are no longer sold in the fancy box and the quality has gone down.
Shrimp roe noodles are one of my favorite things. But the roe is rare and really picey (saw some at one Oakland dried seafood store for 80 dollars a pound. So do not thing you will be getting a lot at your noodles.
My recommedation unless you know a chef who will custom make the noodles for you is to start to make a simple noodles buy some shrimp roe if you can find it and make you own. Two years ago while visit a cousin who had soem shrimp we had a noodle making party and it was something special when we add more roe for the borth.
I will check on this post to see if you fine one. I am therel
Drove by Oakland Chinatown yesterday but did not stop since I could not fine a parking spot but the store I remember see it at (a few years ago) was a dried seafood and mushroom store at the Bill Louie Corner on 8th and Webster. Seafood something was the name. reading while driving.
So it an lead. Now if you get the ingredient you have to some a chef who will make it for you.
used to eat shrimp noodle a lot. a while ago found that all of the brands carried by places like 99 contains MSG or variations like autolyzed yeast extract, which kinda turned me off. stuck to simple white noodle since but craving the good old shrimp noodle.
yimster, got any good recipe for making shrimp noodle?
or, are there any shrimp noodles without MSG?
