- Soak the noodles in lukewarm water for about three hours, and drain in a strainer.
- Heat two tablespoons of oil in your wok over high heat until just smoking. Add the pickled radish, dried shrimps and stir until aromatic.
- Turn the heat up and add noodles and sauce with a splash of water. Stir-fry to combine, lifting the noodles with your wok spatula to spread them out and break them up.
- Make a space on the side of the wok, pushing the noodles to one side. Drizzle one spoonful of oil in the open space, and pour in the beaten eggs. Use your spatula to fold them gently, scrambling them without breaking up the egg too much. When the eggs are about mostly cooked, stir-fry to distribute them into the noodles.
