Hong Kong Style Instant Noodles

Hong Kong Style Instant Noodles Recipe

The ingredients started in this recipe is for one person. Prepare more ingredients accordingly to make more bowls of noodles.



  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp oil
  • 3 slices luncheon meat (spam) or 1 slice of diagonally-halved picnic ham
  • one packet of Nissin’s 出前一丁 see cooking note below
  • 500 ml water
  • 1 stalk baby shanghai green or baby bok choy halved vertically
  • chopped spring onions

You also need:

  • a non-stick pan
  • a personal-sized ramen pot (if you are cooking and eating it straight from the pot)


  1. Cook sunny-side up egg(s). Grease a non-stick pan with oil and heat it to medium. Crack an egg into a small bowl and carefully pour the egg into the pan. Try to position the yolk in the middle surrounded by the egg white. After about two minutes, loosen the edges a bit, and let the egg cook for a few more minutes until the yolk is about half cooked. Set aside on a plate.
  2. Pan fry the meat. In the same pan, pan fry the luncheon meat or ham until lightly seared on both sides.  Set aside on a plate.
  3. Cook noodles and serve. In a small pot, add 500ml of water and bring to a boil. Add instant noodles and soup powder. When the noodles are almost done, add the greens and cook for about 15 seconds. Drizzle the sachet of sesame oil over the noodles. Serve the noodles straight from the pot or dish out to a serving bowl. Garnish with the fried sunny side up egg, luncheon meat/ham & chopped spring onions.

Cooking Note(s):

  1. Although this dish is frequently made with Nissin’s 出前一丁 or Doll Brand noodles (not widely  available in SG), you may substitute with any favourite brand of instant noodles.
  2. You can precook the noodles and discard the “waxy” boiling water if preferred.
  3. You can also substitute the luncheon meat or ham in this recipe with canned 肉丁, and any available greens.

  1. oh! oh! you instant noodle lovers have to try the korean seaweed noodles (four seas seaweed instant noodles) and from hong kong, we love noodle king’s many different flavours.

    whenever we travel we always check out the local supermarket pr 7-11 equivalent for instant noodles to try. having a midnight noodle snack is the kid’s fav part of the trip. crazy huh

  2. wow such gd noodles. anyway i tried this recipe with the eggs poached in the soup w/out the noodles yet and it tasted so good cause of the eggs taking in the flavour of the soup. got this idea in hong kong when i ate the instant noodles with wonton, poached eggs and chilli added to the soupy meal. wah believe me it tasted so gd. think u should try this alternative ;)

  3. Hi Wiffy. Love your blog, your recipes, etc. I discovered you when I was looking for aglio olio recipe online and made mine with just mushrooms and it was great! Thank you. Just want to share my humble opinion on instant noodles. Samyang brand of Korean inst noodles is good, esp hot mushroom and kimchi flavours. I like this brand cos they don’t have msg, but still taste great. The noodle texture is different from Japanese ones, it’s less smooth. But the Q factor is there. Plus it’s made in Korea, not China.
    Sauteed mushrooms, any kind, is great on instant noodles.

  5. Hello,
    I ve a request. I am from India and a fren of mine is visiting HongKong so I request him to buy some packet noodles from there. please suggest some good brand and flavors. I usually dont like the watery broth one. Looking for more like instant fried/ non fried kind of noodles ( like Koka or Indomie Mi goreng which we get here in India but very expensice…). Any good Hongkong brand will also be helpful

  6. One of my favourite things ever, just when we thought we couldn’t get much unhealthier than instant noodles, is this dish that I had at a mom-and-pop cha chaan teng in a public housing complex in Kowloon City…

    五香肉丁炒公仔面 (Five-spice pork cubes stir-fried with instant noodles). Take a couple 出前一丁 noodles, boil them as usual, then start stir frying them, adding a can of 五香肉丁 and letting all the aromatic five-spice infused grease mix with the drying noodles. Garnish with some chopped green onions. Serve with a tall glass of ice-cold lemon Coke.

    A meal fit for a king of peasants.

  7. That looks quite tasty and comforting! I love mine with 2 sunny side up, please :-))
