And under this group, there are many sub-groups.
I fall under, the Hokkien - Heng Hua sub-group. Better known as 兴化 省.
We, Heng Hua, celebrate Chinese New Year quite differently (as for every single culture out there), we have our own Heng Hua food and tradition to follow.
On the first morning of CNY, we need to eat what we creatively called “Heng Hua
And because I can’t speak nuts of Hokkien language, I intelligently combine Hokkien and Mandarin and call it “Heng Hua Mian Xian”.
Eating Rice Noodle has always indicated long life and prosperity
I love Heng Hua Rice Noodle, it’s one of the few Asian dishes that I actually enjoy and love. It’s also the only Asian dish I don’t mind waking up early in the morning to eat, for a person who don’t eat breakfast, that’s a big achievement.
We also share our culture with our ancestors who passed this tradition to us.
Ingredients of Heng Hua Rice Noodle consist of pig intestines and stomach, eggs, sweet peas, bone stock soup, sprinkle of fried onions, assorted mushrooms, abalone and some other anonymous things.
And even though I usually leave the intestines and stomach behind.
It’s delicious like no other.
