My Mami

This soup is perfect for a rainy day. Here in the Philippines it is also considered as a healthy snack. The ingredients are easy to find, easy to prepare and to assemble. All you need is a hot soup of any broth of your choice and some egg noodles.

*Noodle soup refers to a variety of soups with noodles and other ingredients served in a light broth. Noodle soup is an East and Southeast Asian staple. Less well known, a form of fresh (typically home made) noodle is used. In northern China; usually, it is served for breakfast or brunch. The type of noodles range from rice noodles to egg noodles.

Mami is a noodle soup, with either beef, pork, chicken, or wanton garnish and topped with chives, chopped greens and garlic chips. Egg noodles are used, but there are versions using flat rice noodles. Introduced in the Philippines by Ma Mon Luk.On a personal note, I use pure chicken broth from the breasts I boiled, with salt and pepper. I don't use chicken cubes or some kind.

Best served with pork siomai and chili garlic.
