Braised Noodles with minced pork & egg plant ~ 茄子肉碎焖生麵


I was curious when I spotted this Noodle dish on the menu when I dined at  Ee Chinese Cuisine at Eastin Hotel in Kuala Lumpur, recently.  So, to kill everyone's curiosity, why not give this dish a try.  It was delicious and having some egg plants to go with noodles, that's a bit unique to me.  So I attempted to give this a try and well, it was not as good as the one that was whipped up by a chef, but certainly it's good enough to add this to my family's list of homecooked comfort dish.
