Finished (click to enlarge). Added carved squid, pork, shrimp, chopped garlic and spring onion and sauteed with La-Yu chilli oil and added. The noodles are very good – thick, slightly wide and chewy. Definitely on the gourmet spectrum. The broth has a rich kind of smoky and spicy seafood taste to it which is really great. The included garnish hydrated very well. 5.0 out of 5.0 stars.
