Moonlight Hor Fun

15 min


3-4 pax

Not the most common ZiChar dish but definitely one we always order when we do see it!

Moonlight Hor Fun is really your regular hor fun topped with a raw egg or egg yolk. The reason why it’s called moonlight is because when the golden yolk is stirred into the charred brown noodles, it looks like moonlight shining through a river. Mixing in the fresh, raw egg gives the already umami rich seafood broth and flavourful rice noodles makes the entire dish extra buttery and creamy.

Pro tip: Stir fry the rice noodles in high heat for wok hei!
