This is the authentic taste of bifun (mei fun noodles), just like the kind served from a food cart in Taiwan. I've had this bifun dish since childhood.
My mother used to make this for me growing up. She taught me the recipe.
Untangle the noodles quickly as soon as you put them in boiling water, and drain! If you let it sit in the hot water for too long, the noodles will soften and become mushy.
Enjoy Japanese food around the world.
