Essentially you want something tangy and crunchy) For the fried noodle topping, add about 1”/2.5cm of oil to a medium sauce pot and heat over medium high. Once oil reaches 350F/175C, drop in a small bundle of the fresh egg noodles to fry for about 15-20 seconds per side or until puffed up and taking on some color.
