The noodle is made with eggs, traditionally made with duck egg, and is considered one of the rarer noodles in existence. Historically the chef rides a bamboo log to press the eggs, flour, and other ingredients together. As of 2008 in Hong Kong, only a few restaurants are left that make the noodles in the traditional manner.
Use in dishes
One of the noodle's most popular combinations in a dish is jook-sing wonton noodles (竹昇雲吞麵).
