The Chinese New Year brings with it a variety of traditions. While our family is not Chinese, we enjoy the celebration. A large part of this is because the boys love to eat.
Whether you are celebrating the Chinese New Year or just enjoy exploring food from other cultures, then you have to try these noodles. This dish is also found at birthday celebrations throughout the year.
This soup is very delicious and satisfying. With the inclusion of meatballs and egg, it’s earthy and filling. This is also a great dish to enjoy on a cold winter day; true comfort food.

The noodles are considered to be very special because of their length.
They are usually created from one dough ball, and then folded and stretched until there are 1000 strands, which symbolizes luck for the New Year.
The longer the noodle, the better. Hence, be sure not to cut the noodles before or after cooking.
Also, in some families, this is served with an egg to signify fertility or new beginnings.
In this recipe, we used the Japanese style Tomoshiraga noodles instead as they are basically the same but more easily found.
