Jook-sing noodles is a rare type of Chinese noodle found in some parts of Hong Kong, Macau, and some parts of Guangzhou in Guangdong province, China.


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.[1]

In 2009, a restaurant, Bamboodles, featuring noodles prepared in this style, opened in the San Gabriel Valley, a suburb of Los Angeles, California.[2]

Use in dishes[edit]

One of the noodle's most popular combinations in a dish is jook-sing wonton noodles (竹昇雲吞麵).[1]
